The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy (Smythe-Smith Quartet, #4)

The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy

Smythe-Smith #4

by Julia Quinn

01 . 27 . 15

From GoodReads: 

Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can’t be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family’s infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She’s the type of girl you don’t notice until the second—or third—look, but there’s something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she’s the one.

Iris Smythe–Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she can’t quite believe it’s all true. When his proposal of marriage turns into a compromising position that forces the issue, she can’t help thinking that he’s hiding something . . . even as her heart tells her to say yes.

Why I am waiting…

Having read many of Julia Quinn other novels, I know that she delivers a delightful romance that absolutely sparkles with witty dialogue.  Her books are fantastically amusing and clever.  I always look forward to them and this series has proven to be just as delightful as The Bridgertons, possibly even more so.  If you like historical romance at all — you must read these books.

This weeks can’t-wait-to-read is:

Mr. Kiss and Tell (Veronica Mars, #2)

Mr. Kiss and Tell 

Veronica Mars #2

by Rob Thomas, Jennifer Graham

01 . 26 . 15

From GoodReads:

In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman’s story.

The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?

Why I am waiting: 

I am not gonna lie, I came to the Veronica Mars party a bit late. I finally decided to give it a try on Netflix one afternoon.  My sister had been telling me for years that I was going to love it — especially since I lover Buffy the Vampire SlayerAngelRoswell, Dark Angel, NCIS…etc.  Anyways — I gave in and less than a week later I had binge watched all three season and the fan-funded movie.  The series is just fantastic.  Though I do hear that there is a possibility for another movie, the story of the Veronica’s adventures is currently being continued through novels.  A friend gave me the first book, The Ten Thousand-Dollar Tan Lineand I finished it in a DAY.  This next book looks like it is going to be just as good and I am so excited.
