Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 343 - The Hangman's Secret by Laura Joh Rowland, Touch of Eon by Anna Hackett

The Hangman's Secret (Victorian Mystery, #3)The Hangman's Secret by Laura Joh Rowland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something fascinating about the Victorian Age and mysteries set in that time period. The values and accepted behavior are so different from today. I love the fact that Sarah Bain is a photographer during a time when women are beginning to have more freedom. The two males are as interesting as Sarah. Lord Hugh Staunton is gay in a time when it is a crime and Mick is a street kid who they have taken under their wing. Add in Sarah's love interest Barrett, a police man and you have a great mix of characters to carry the story. The plot here has multiple paths and watching how it plays out made it hard to put down. This is book three and can stand alone but I did wish I had read the first two so I would know exactly what happened when those past cases are mentioned.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Touch Of Eon (Eon Warriors, #2)Touch Of Eon by Anna Hackett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Touch of Eon brings Lara a Special Forces Space Marine from Earth and Security Commander Caze Vann-Jad. They start as enemies but soon have to work together to survive. This is another fun romp in the Eon Warriors series. The two are a great match as they come trust each other. It was easy to see what was going to happen between the two. The plot that drives the two makes it a very fun read as they go from one dangerous condition to another barely surviving each time. Love the series and am looking forward to book three.
