“Deanna Raybourn…brings energetic storytelling and a strong sense of history to
A CURIOUS BEGINNING.”
—South Florida Sun-Sentinel
“Fans will be delighted with Raybourn’s return to this era, while page-flipping newcomers will find them full of witty riposte and elegant descriptives…. Both will be crying for more, and Raybourn delivers.”
“Raybourn introduces her latest feisty heroine, deftly twining together suspense, romance, and cracking good dialogue….As Veronica and Stoker careen through dastardly plot twists, they match wits, bantering with skill worthy of Tracey and Hepburn. A thrilling—and hilarious—beginning to a promising new series.”
“Creating strong character pairings, placing the action in unexpectedly unusual but actual historical settings, and folding it all into a clever mystery are hallmarks of this author’s magical, signature style.”
—Library Journal (starred review)
A CURIOUS BEGINNING will leave you, as it left me, whimpering for more.”
—Alan Bradley, New York Times bestselling author of the Flavia de Luce series
“The intrepid Veronica’s witty narration and the sexual tension she shares with the equally eccentric and articulate Stoker deliver a fun read with promises of more to come.”
“Deanna Raybourn writes with wisdom, sass and a rich texture that is a joy to read. I love this book! A CURIOUS BEGINNING brings us the powerful Veronica Speedwell who triumphs over diversity and danger with wit, charm and uncanny determination. This is a real find for mystery lovers!”
—Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Virgin River series
— Susan Elia MacNeal, author of the New York Times bestselling Maggie Hope series
“I've been a big fan of Deanna’s for some time and this book was a treat to read. How could I resist a royal scandal, an Irish plot, and a really sexy hero who has a tendency to work with no shirt on? Deanna is one of the few writers who can make history feel immediate and exciting without losing a feel for the period.”
—Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of Her Royal Spyness series and winner of the Agatha Award for Queen of Hearts
