“A fun romance with a geeky heroine!”
I have been intrigued by Minerva Highwood ever since I read A Night to Surrender, the first book in the Spindle Cove series. Of course, we were given a small glimpse of Minerva’s romance and the rogue Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne. This book has also been recommended by quite a few romance bloggers (I’m looking at you, Mary!) so I immediately jumped on the bandwagon.
I was not disappointed!
I love Minerva Highwood! Her strength and unique character really shown in this book. Although we see it in the previous book, it is more emphasized here. I also love the pairing between Colin and her. I mean, who doesn’t love a rake paired with a plain bluestocking? I do! With Colin’s antics in the previous book, it was quite a relief to see him step up to the plate and be responsible for a change. I love his caring for the lad that lost his foot (I forgot his name, sorry) and his insistence to right the wrongs that he inadvertently caused.
A Week to be Wicked was unique in a sense that I did not expect what was coming. I enjoyed the escapades the two got into while traveling to Scotland (which was no ordinary travel, mind you) and I also enjoyed their witty banter. Naturally, their romance fairly sizzled as I listened to the audiobook.
The only downside of this book was the slightly dragging part when they were traveling together. It got a little frustrating for a time when it became a little too predictable for me.
A Week to be Wicked is a fun read, never to be missed. The most enjoyable Spincle Cove book yet!
Narrated by Carolyn Morris, she added a certain degree of enjoyment and excitement to my listening pleasure. She was also the narrator for A Night to Surrender so I was glad that she narrated this book.
