A Daughter of Fair Verona (Daughter of Montague, #1) by Christina Dodd

Romeo and Juliet are alive and well, the parents of seven children. Rosaline (Rosie) being the eldest. Duke Stephano is set to marry her (not of her chosing) when she stumbles upon his dead body. It is not long before Rosie becomes the main suspect, although many would have reson to see him dead.

Vowing not to fall in love, happy with her "Spinsterhood" until she sets eyes on a young man to which she finds herself attracted to. Can it be love at first sight, something she doesn't belive in? Tension is in the air and soon Rosie finds herself in danger. She is determined to find a killer before more blood is shed.

The story moves at a fast pace told from Rosie's point of view. I found the writng brilliant as Rosie (at times) is speaking directly to the reader. Her thoughts are clearly made, making this compelling story more enjoyable.

Overall I found A Daughter of Fair Verona quite enjoyable. I highly recommend this fantastic Historical murder/mystery with a hint of humor, a dash of drama and splash of romance. A true five star read.

IF Romeo and Juliet had lived, what would their firstborn daughter be like? Read this clever and witty book to find out! Their survival will be explained and you will enjoy a romp through fair Verona as their headstrong, virginal, unmarried at an “elderly” age (20!!!) daughter, Rosaline, avoids marriage to unsuitable prospects, is accused of murder, pursues an avocation as an alchemist, meets a true love, is trained in swordsmanship and is wooed by a prince.

Rosaline (Rosie) is a spunky, hot blooded, pragmatic, clever young woman with a biting wit. Just when she finds the love of her life, she is forcibly betrothed to an unlikable character who is murdered at their engagement party. Soon, a second character is poisoned and suspicion falls on Rosie. It is up to her and her intrepid, protective nurse to prove her innocence. Yes, it is historical, but it has a snappy, contemporary feel to it.

The book ends on a cliff hanger and there is already a sequel in the works. Do read the author’s notes at the end….where you can find the website for the recipe for the fruit and nut bread so loved by the prince and more information about the series.

Thanks to #NetGalley and @KensingtonBooks for the DRC.

Being alive had cost her dearly.

This may be my favorite read of 2024 because it definitely sets a high bar for anything to follow! A remarkably well crafted thriller with white hot suspense, romance and over the top action. It takes a special talent to seamlessly weave a tale of this caliber into an unputdownable read. Bravo!

I loved this romantic suspense novel filled with action and psychological thrills. I think this has been one of my favorite stories of the year. I loved Rowan and felt so sorry that she had to grow up the way she did. I loved that Joe has so many layers. I loved all the secrets that are revealed. I did not want to put this book down. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
