A Matter of Grave Concern

I officially fell in love with this book. There are so many things that I loved about this that I cannot just name one. There are quite a few quotes throughout the book that made me love these characters more.

Abby is the daughter of a surgeon at a college. She has had dreams of becoming one herself even though she knew it would be impossible because women did not do those things. Women were good for being mothers and wives. But one night when she was trying to help out her father college, it changed her life forever. She met a man she knew she could love.

Max was with a group of people because he was trying to find his sister. All he wanted was to find her and bring her home with him. He never thought that one night meeting one remarkable woman would make him think is decisions for his future.

Throughout the book baby and Max tried their hardest to survive in the streets of London and find Max's sister as well.

By the end of the book Max admitted he loved Abby and finally came to his senses and asked her to marry him.

This book made me laugh. I loved how the author brought humor and life to her characters. I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed.


Book Blurb for A Matter of Grave Concern

Bestselling author Brenda Novak unearths love in the darkest of places.

When Maximillian Wilder hides his noble identity and joins the notorious body snatchers known as the London Supply Company, the last thing on his mind is love. He’s worried about Madeline, his vanished half sister, who was last seen in the company of Jack Hurtsill, the gang’s conscienceless leader. Raiding graveyards, stealing corpses, and selling them to medical colleges as dissection material is dirty work, but Max knows he must gain Jack’s trust. He’s determined to find out what happened to Madeline—and to bring Jack to justice if she was murdered for the coin her body could earn.

Beautiful, spirited Abigail Hale, daughter of the surgeon at Aldersgate School of Medicine, detests the challenging, hard-bargaining Max almost as much as Jack. But she must procure the necessary specimens if she is to save the college and her father’s career. She believes she is going to be successful—until Jack double-crosses her. Then she’s swept into a plot of danger and intrigue, one where Max must intervene to protect her, no matter the risk to his plan…or his heart.
