Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 173 - A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Rayburn, Promise Not to Tell by Jayne Ann Krantz

A Perilous Undertaking (A Veronica Speedwell Mystery #2)A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Veronica and Stoker are in over their heads again. They need to solve a murder and save a innocent man from hanging. That kept my interest but that is not the main mystery in the series. Veronica's parents were revealed in the first book and one of Stoker's secrets comes out in this book. However, both seem to have many more secrets that are part of the story line. In addition to the two main characters there are some very interesting side characters who are part of the story line. A interesting historical mystery series with a lot more to reveal about the characters and their past.

Promise Not to Tell (Cutler, Sutter & Salinas #2)Promise Not to Tell by Jayne Ann Krentz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Virginia Troy and Cabot Sutter are typical of Krantz's main characters. Both are flawed and have trouble relating to others. Their dating lives are a disaster so when they come together of course they are a very good fit. The mystery here is interesting. There are red herrings, tension filled moments and a lot of blowback from the past. The back story is very well spelled out adding additional feeling to the plot. A nice interesting read with good characters, a well plotted story line and of course a romance.
