“Ripper”: Not your typical historical romance

Ripper

Romance author Amy Cecil writes both contemporary and historical romance, but her latest release, Ripper, is like no historical romance I’ve ever read. Set in London, during the times of the Jack the Ripper roamed the streets of White Chapel, this story explores possibilities and throws in more than a few surprising twists.

Life is looking up for Marie, with a new client turned lover, it looks as if she might be able to leave behind her life of poverty. But Jax’s behaviors cause suspicions she can’t ignore, suspicions that, if proven true, might make it impossible to follow this dream life she’s found. What’s a girl to do when she learns the man she loves might be Jack the Ripper?

A cleverly-crafted tale that will keep readers guessing until the last pages. I give Ripper five quills.

  1. I really like the sound of this book, Kaye

    • Definitely a worthwhile read Robbie. I don’t read a lot of romance, but this book has elements of mystery and thriller, and the genre combination works well with this story. In no way was it as I expected. I was pleasantly surprised repeatedly.
