A Lady Never Lies by Stephanie Burkhart #bookreview @goddessfish

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Stephanie will be awarding a $25 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Jocelyn Dunkirk is not your typical Victorian lady. She dresses in leather, wears goggles and is not afraid to get a little grease under her fingernails. Gentlemen avoid her like a dirty rivet.

Richard Windsor, the Prince of Wales, travels through time to claim Jocelyn’s heart, but if it isn’t one challenge, it’s another. He determines to be a constant, steady presence in her life, hoping to prove he’d make a worthy husband.

Jocelyn’s facing a bucket full of problems. The Prime Minister wants her to assist in ending a coal strike before it cripples the nation while her father attempts to recover from a serious injury. Will Jocelyn’s dedication to her country and family ruin the one chance she has at love?

Read and excerpt from the book:

Jocelyn froze, stunned to find herself face-to-face with Richard. She’d hoped he’d come back for her, but not like this. She brushed aside her sudden surge of happiness as she glanced at her father. He struggled to maintain his composure.

“We need to leave,” the doctor said.

“Lord Ridgecroft, come.” Sir John nudged Jocelyn’s father and they began walking toward the exit.

Richard rushed to her side, placing a hand on her elbow. His expression filled with longing — and concern. “Jocelyn–”

She raised a hand. “I can’t–”

“What happened?” Richard’s voice shook.

Keira leaned forward. “The ring you left behind exploded.”

A deep, pained look crossed his face.

Jocelyn turned away. She had to keep her focus on her father when she could be assured of her father’s well being, then she’d deal with Richard’s reappearance. They entered a hall that the servants used and headed toward the exit.

My review: 

I didn’t read the first two Windsor Diaries books but I definitely will now! I had no problem keeping up though, the author did a great job of catching you up with out throwing tons of info at you. This is the 4th book I have read by this author and I am thoroughly enjoying her writing style. A Lady Never Lies is written in a steampunk type of plot where things are a bit “timey-whimey” to quote Dr Who. I loved the incorporation of the different eras of language all mixed up and how all the characters interacted. It was fantastic. You’ve got romance, betrayal, time travel and gadgets. Perfect mix!!! Can’t wait for the next book.
