Hello there! Second review for the week! I’m getting this done really well and really quick and I’m glad because these are oooooverdue. Let’s jump right into the review for To Disguise the Truth.
The vibe of this story was different than To Steal a Heart but I was not disappointed!
Eunice. She was something different. I didn’t really realize how interesting of a person she was! Coming from To Steal A Heart, I knew she was something special, but I had no idea how much she was behind those widow’s weeds. Getting to know her personality and her purpose, but also her attitude and determination was very entertaining. I liked her character a lot more than in the first book. (I actually didn’t know there was a second book before To Disguise the Truth until I went to Barnes and Nobles to spend a gift card and found it and bought To Write a Wrong without hesitation.
Oh Arthur Arthur. A stubborn, determined man who frankly was exactly perfect for Eunice’s personality. Their interactions consistently made me laugh and I quite enjoyed it.
Some of my favorite other characters were Vincent and Judith (honestly Judith’s character was… top three XD. I hope so much that the next book is about her)
Ok the plot for this one was a bit tangled up with itself and following each individual thread was really a lot of fun, if slightly confusing at times. The whole plot with Mrs. Mills was both horrifying and hilarious. And of course the discovery of Eunice’s backstory and everything. It was very fun.
Unfortunately it’s been a little while since I read this particular book and I don’t remember specific content that may have been disturbing. I know that the insane asylum was pretty icky but not inappropriate. And I know they talked about having children outside of wedlock, and Mrs. Mill’s husband being unfaithful, as well as a few others. I don’t recall any graphic violence or inappropriate sexual content. I’d like to say that this book was fairly clean.
Oh yes, I will be reading this book again in the near future. The Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency series is a blast through every chapter and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a fun story that touches on heavy topics without dragging you into the abyss. And the characters are always so unique and entertaining. XD Four stars for sure! I hope you girls give it a try if have the chance!
Thank you to Bethany House and the author for a copy of this book. A positive review was not required and all opinions are my own!
