I am re-reading A Curious Beginning, the first of the Veronica Speedwell series, to get ready for book two. A Perilous Undertaking is not due out until January of 2017, but I scored an early reviewers copy, so it is the next thing on my TBR list.
When I first read A Curious Beginning, I gave it five stars. I seldom do that, so I must have really enjoyed it. After re-reading about half of it, I know it deserved five stars or better. I love this book.
In Melissa’s review on GoodReads of the second book, she compares Veronica and Stoker to Peabody and Emerson. I did not pick up on that, but she is right. The personalities and relationship does feel the same, which is a good thing.
Anyway, on to the quotes:
Veronica: “I have faith that men can be as reasonable and logical as women if they but try.”
Veronica again: “I gave it to him because, in my experience, it is far better to tell a man what he wants to hear and then do as you please than attempt to reason with him.”
And finally, Stoker: “Pay attention when I am lecturing you. You can woolgather later.”
I mean, what’s not to love?
