A Spring Scandal is the third and final book in the Devereaux Manor Series, I was gifted an arc of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I love a good murder mystery but for some reason the mystery part of this series always sneaks up on me. I get so consumed by the relationship and love that I sort of forget that there is the intrigue and underlying mystery always there hiding in the background. And then BAM something happens and I’m completely consumed trying to figure out what the hell is going on and who is at the bottom of it all.
A Spring Scandal completely smashed through the book funk I have been in for the past few days. Like a breath of mysterious air Tracey Smiths writing engrossed me and had me guessing who the murderer was and what their motive was.
I have always loved that this series keeps me on my toes I never expect the dramatic action that happens and I’m always on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
I have to say I’m proud to admit that I did figure out who had done some of the stuff and a bit of a victory dance did happen when that person was revealed.
I know this review is a tad vague but I’m not prepared to give out any spoilers so trust me read this book and all will be revealed.
This series is like Murder She Wrote crossed with Poirot crossed with Miss Marple…. So basically all of the best oldschool murder mysteries combined into a lust and sex filled romance and honestly I have loved all 3 books.
Im so sad that this is the final book but I loved the pace the author created while the final pieces of the puzzle were revealed.
This was a great book and a fantastic series and I look forward to reading more books by this very talented author.
A Spring Scandal gets 4.5 stars from me.
