Review: Think of England by K.J. Charles

Think of EnglandIf you’ve ever watched Downton Abbey and thought, “This show could use more espionage, blackmail, and murder,” this is the book for you! What I especially enjoyed about this book is that it is primarily a mystery/thriller with an excellent romance subplot. But more importantly, the romance subplot informs and adds to the tension of the main plot, which is a credit once again to the author’s ability to tell a seamless story. 

Curtis and da Silva are both delightful heroes in their own right, and their interactions are never what I expect. The secondary characters present in this house party that will provide gossip for years to come are also well-crafted, and no one is who they seem.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories about English early twentieth-century manners and mayhem, especially when it involves spies, eerie country houses, and lots of sass.

Rating: 4 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
