Lover’s Knot: A Mysterious Pride & Prejudice Variation by Jenetta James - Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Blog Tour: Lover's Knot by Jenetta JamesToday the blog tour for Jenetta James' new book, Lover’s Knot: A Mysterious Pride & Prejudice Variation stops by for my review. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to read this book, having previously enjoyed reading Suddenly Mrs Darcy, The Elizabeth Papers and The Darcy Monologues. The other reason I wanted to read this is that it's a mystery. I love reading mysteries, and prefer historical ones such as those by Agatha Christie with sleuthing and legwork. The blog tour also has a giveaway attached! We'll start off with the blurb:

Plans for April 2018

Building work progress so farHappy April everybody! Spring is making a slow start in my neck of the woods. I had a very busy March. It was a busy month anyway but my building work started, so that is taking up a lot of my mental energy. My house is a mess, with things being displaced, and we are having to spend time looking at things like tiles and French doors. The actual work seems to be going well so far. We are having a new room built on the back of the house which will be a kitchen diner, once finished, so there's been demolition and the beginnings of a new room. It may look titchy to you, but houses in the UK aren't generally big, so it'll give us a good amount of extra living space. This is the progress so far!

Lover's Knot by Jennetta James - Blog Tour
As for reading, the only thing I currently have planned in is Lover's Knot by Jennetta James, which I understand is a P&P-based mystery. The blog tour for this will be stopping by later this week. Hopefully you can drop by then to see what I thought of the book.

I hope to do some other reading too, but I'm not sure which books! I have a huge backlog of books I've committed to read, and aside from that there are other books that I have been wanting to read. My children are on school holiday now, and unlike other holidays this may lead to further reading time as we can't plan much in, as I'm not sure from day to day what is happening with the building work.

Let me know what you've been reading or what you plan to read this month. Is there anything I should prioritise in my TBR list? 

I hope you have a wonderful April!
