My Rating: 5 Stars
In this irresistibly-priced short story, catch a glimpse of the inner struggles and triumphs that drive Stalking Jack the Ripper’s endearing but troubled hero.
Enigmatic, brooding, and darkly handsome, Thomas Cresswell has always been the one mystery Audrey Rose has never been able to fully solve. As brilliant partners in crime investigation, they understand each other perfectly…but as young lovers, their passionate natures have led to both euphoria and heartbreak throughout the Stalking Jack the Ripper series.
This novella features a collection of scenes that takes place during and after the pair’s horrifying Atlantic voyage in Escaping From Houdini. Experience new and familiar scenes from Thomas’s unique point of view, including an intensely personal look into his plea for Audrey Rose’s hand in marriage.
With a romance for the ages, Audrey Rose and Thomas reach the conclusion to their epic, irresistible partnership in their final adventure, Capturing the Devil
You all know my obsession with this series. This novella takes places toward the end of Escaping from Houdini so we get to reread some things that happened in Thomas’ point of view instead of Audrey’s and then we get a taste for what’s to come in the final book.
Escaping from Houdini was my least favorite book in this series even though I still gave it 5 stars so I was a little worried about how I was going to feel about reading the same thing from a different POV.
Well I loved it. Getting Thomas’ POV was heartbreaking. His love for Audrey is so palpable and flies off the pages and getting a front row seat to Thomas’ thoughts and how hurt he was hurt me. Ok sorry guys I just love Thomas Cresswell and I want him to be happy.
I’m going to stop here because I’m just going to continue to gush over Thomas and talk about how much I love him. I definitely recommend you read this novella but definitely read Escaping from Houdini first because you will get spoiled.
