The Bachelor and the Bride by Sarah M. Eden // Review

My Review: 

The Dread Penny Society is at it again, as the Mastiff again rears his head, and a series of grave robberies point to a dastardly alliance.

Dr. Barnabas Milligan has been keeping a secret, and his friends are shocked to learn the reason by his assumed bachelor status. I was happy when I saw that this book would be about Dr. Milligan, as he has been a wonderful and compassionate friend to his comrades in the Dread Penny Society. It was fun seeing Barnabas and Gemma reconnecting and working together to get to the bottom of the string of deaths. 

Another delightful addition to the Dread Penny Society, with strong protagonists, and a riveting plot interspersed with "bonus" stories. One of the penny dreadfuls was a romantic fairy tale quest, and the other was a chilling mystery of scientific phenomena. 

Overall, an enjoyable read with plenty going on and likable characters, with a sweet second chance/marriage of convenience romance. Gemma is a clever and courageous heroine, willing to stand up to her past, which I admired her for. Another fun, clean read from the Penny Dreadful Society.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
