After reading My Lady Jane at the beginning of this year, I have been wanting to read more historical fiction. Seeing the sign up for this book, I saw it as a sign to read more. I have seen this book mentioned a few times online and so far I have loved most of the books I have read from Swoon Reads. If you want to know if I enjoyed Suitors and Sabotage just as much, keep on reading.

Shy aspiring artist Imogene Chively has just had a successful Season in London, complete with a suitor of her father’s approval. Imogene is ambivalent about the young gentleman until he comes to visit her at the Chively estate with his younger brother in tow. When her interest is piqued, however, it is for the wrong brother.
Charming Ben Steeple has a secret: despite being an architectural apprentice, he has no drawing aptitude. When Imogene offers to teach him, Ben is soon smitten by the young lady he considers his brother’s intended.
But hiding their true feelings becomes the least of their problems when, after a series of “accidents,” it becomes apparent that someone means Ben harm. And as their affection for each other grows—despite their efforts to remain just friends—so does the danger. . .
In Suitors and Sabotage, author Cindy Anstey delivers another witty young adult historical fiction novel that is the perfect mix of sweetly romantic and action-packed.
She has lived on three continents, had a monkey in her yard and a scorpion under her sink, dwelt among castles and canals, enjoyed the jazz of Beale St and attempted to speak French.
Cindy loves history, mystery and… a chocolate Labrador called Chester. Love, Lies and Spies is her debut novel.

I enjoyed this book and the time it took place in. If you don’t like love triangles this isn’t the book for you though. I loved that there was a little bit of mystery combined in this story as well. I think I definitely want to read her other books.
