Love On The Line by Anabelle Bryant


Love On The Line is the first book in the Vauxhall Voices series by Anabelle Bryant.  Two things instantly attracted me to this book – the beautiful cover and the description.  I love when a book includes Vauxhall, and this book puts Vauxhall and its entertainers on center stage!  Lola York, a tightrope performer, meets Theodore Coventry, Earl of Essex, under tragic and mysterious circumstances.  The two are thrown together and are soon embroiled in a mystery and develop feelings for one another.

I loved Lola and Theodore!  Lola is independent, resourceful, and loyal.  Theodore is an unconventional earl; he cares nothing for society or its gossip.  It was refreshing that societal expectations didn’t deter Theodore’s feelings for Lola.  The couple together was explosive, as bright as Vauxhall’s fireworks!  I wanted this couple to succeed.  I became invested in both Lola and Theodore’s struggles and victories, and that is an attribute of excellent writing.

I loved that this book takes place at Vauxhall.  The backdrop and secondary characters greatly enhanced the story.  I did feel the ending was abrupt, and everything resolved itself too easily.  That being said, I truly enjoyed this book.   I had read Anabelle Bryant before and enjoyed her Maidens Of Mayhem series. However, this book is my favorite.  Anabelle Bryant has the beginnings of a unique, intriguing, passionate series.  I can’t wait for Sophia’s book!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through BookSprout.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
