Book Review-Ravishing in Red

Madeline Hunter
Ravishing in Red
A Historical Romance Novel

This book was a surprise for me. I'd never read Madeline Hunter before and the back blurb just didn't seem to draw me in. I expected to find another spy novel with bumbling characters and a weak mystery woven inside. What I ended up loving about the book was that the heroine was not only stubborn and strong, she was also smart. She knows that men undervalue women and she is able to use that to her advantage.

Hunter's use of secondary characters is very enticing. The other women in the Rarest Blooms group were quite entertaining and she did a great job of teasing towards her other books in the series. I liked how she was drawn to the crippled brother and how that then impacted her relationship with her husband. It created some wonderful plot twists that propelled the story instead of feeling like filler. I am excited to continue the series as it unravels each woman's mysterious past. Also, I love her cover!
5/5

  1. I haven't read this one yet...it sounds great! Thanks for the review. I did read The Rules of Seduction, and I really liked that one. I would def. recommend it.

    Good luck with the ice storm!

  2. Penelope-I'll have to pick up a copy of that one so that I can try more of her writing. Not so much ice for us right now, just tons and tons of snow! I hope that you're able to stay dry and warm today, I'm thinking cocoa, book, and blanket kind of day today!
