The Hummingbird Dagger
by Cindy Anstey
Expected publication: April 16th 2019 by Swoon Reads
Set in 1833. After young Lord James Ellerby witnesses a near-fatal carriage accident on the outskirts of his estate, he doesn’t think twice about bringing the young woman injured in the wreck to his family’s manor to recuperate. But then she finally regains consciousness only to find that she has no memory of who she is or where she belongs.
Beth, as she takes to calling herself, is an enigma even to herself. She has the rough hands of a servant, but the bearing and apparent education of a lady. Her only clue to her identity is a gruesome recurring nightmare about a hummingbird dripping blood from its steel beak.
With the help of James and his sister, Caroline, Beth slowly begins to unravel the mystery behind her identity and the sinister circumstances that brought her to their door. But the dangerous secrets they discover in doing so could have deadly ramifications reaching the highest tiers of London society.
I am a sucker for book written in 1800s. I don’t know why I love that era so much. It’s also kind of a spooky era but so interesting. I thought this would be a different read, something I don’t normally read. I really think the era is what grabbed me the most and the cover is pretty cool.
Anything you are currently waiting for?
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
