Blog Tour: Fatal Masquerade (A Lady Alkmene Mysteries) By Vivian Conroy
‘How did you know it was me, anyways, when I came up to you?’
Jake shrugged. ‘I’m used to committing people’s posture, movements, total appearance to memory. When I’m stalking someone in the city, I have to recognize him or her in a crowd. Besides, your eyes are quite memorable. I’d recognize them anywhere.’—Fatal Masquerade Chapter 3
Lady Alkmene and Jake Dubois are back in a gripping new adventure facing dangerous opponents at a masked ball in the countryside.
Lady Alkmene Callender has always loved grand parties, but when she receives an invitation to a masked ball thrown by Franklin Hargrove – oil magnate, aviation enthusiast and father of her best friend, Denise – she’s never seen such luxury. The estate is lit up with Chinese lanterns in the gardens, boats operated by footmen float across the pond and the guest list features the distinguished, rich and powerful!
But below the glamour, evil is lurking. When a dead body is discovered, it forces Lady Alkmene to throw off her mask and attempt to find the true killer before Denise’s family are accused. If only her partner, Jake Dubois, weren’t hiding something from her…
This case might just be more dangerous than either of them could have imagined.
Welcome, if you’re new here. I was so excited when Vivian asked me to be apart of the blog tour! If you follow me on Facebook you know that I’m absolutely OBSESSED with this series. When Book one A Proposal to Die For popped up in my bookbub subscription I was intrigued, but I didn’t buy it right away (I was at the end of my book budget). For months, I kept coming back to it so finally I bought it and feel in LOVE. Jake Dubois quickly became one of my favorite book boyfriends. You’ll love this reporter with his quick thinking and how he teases Alkmene about her status. Alkmene has a sharp-tongue and likes to sleuth. Together with her status and his resources they are the perfect team.
This is the fourth book in the series and I have to say it’s the BEST! I waited up all night for this book to finally appear in my kindle and it didn’t disappoint. Before I even received the book I was wondering, would we finally get back to the blackmail letter we learned of in the first book? You’ll have to read it to find out. The writing and descriptions in this book were flawless. To Jake mysteriously appearing at the masked ball, to the interesting characters at dinner, the mystery man Denise is seeing, and a murder. Its mystery at its best! The red herrings threw me for a while, but when you finally discover the murderer you learn so much more then we bargained for. Could we finally discover where these mysterious blackmail letters are coming from?
Fatal Masquerade has so many twists and turns its sure to keep you on your toes. This is also the first book in the series to have a cliffhanger and I cannot wait for more! This book was truly amazing. I cannot wait to see what happens in Lady Alkmene and Jake’s next adventure.
I give this book 5 stars.
Start this series today! It will not disappoint.
