2014 book 287

Tessa Dare's A Week to be Wicked
The second book in the Spindle Cove series was much more up my alley--it picks up with two characters from the first book, a rakish viscount and a bespectacled geologist (she was one of my favorite parts of the first one). She's determined to present her latest findings (a dinosaur footprint!) to the Royal Geologic Society symposium in Scotland--and persuades him to come alone, pretending they've eloped. He's eager to get out of town (not to mention super into her lush lips), so agrees with this mildly ridiculous plans, to the usual effect. There are some really nice moments here--I particularly liked how into her intelligence he is--and this book continues setting up a couple of other romances in the town. Very enjoyable. A-.
