#CoverCrush A Dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn

For new visitors do I want to explain that Cover Crush is something that my friend Erin over at Historical Fiction Reader came up with and I adopted the idea together with some other friends. And, now we try to put up a Cover Crush every week. You can check below my pick of the week for their choices this week!

Veronica Speedwell returns in another adventure filled with secrets and betrayal from Deanna Raybourn, the New York Times bestselling author of the Lady Julia Grey Mysteries.

Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell is whisked off to a remote island off the tip of Cornwall when her natural historian colleague Stoker’s brother calls in a favor. On the pretext of wanting a companion to accompany him to Lord Malcolm Romilly’s house party, Tiberius persuades Veronica to pose as his fiancée—much to Stoker’s chagrin. But upon arriving, it becomes clear that the party is not as innocent as it had seemed. Every invited guest has a connection to Romilly’s wife, Rosamund, who disappeared on her wedding day three years ago, and a dramatic dinner proves she is very much on her husband’s mind.

As spectral figures, ghostly music, and mysterious threats begin to plague the partygoers, Veronica enlists Stoker’s help to discover the host’s true motivations. And as they investigate, it becomes clear that there are numerous mysteries surrounding the Romilly estate, and every person present has a motive to kill Rosamund…


Yes, this is a series I love so I'm eagerly awaiting this book. But, the cover is gorgeous as well, heck the covers for all the books in this series are great. Which makes me a bit sad since I don't own any of the books in hardcover. I've only read the books as eARCs. The sad truth about ebooks, admiring the covers are just not the same thing as with hardcover/paperbacks. Anyway, just look at the cover, there is Veronica about to catch some butterflies, although I bet she will be more likely trying to solve a crime of some kind...with Stoker...
