An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 12, 2009 If you want to read Sherry Thomas's third novel, Not Quite a Husband, choose a moment when you have some time to yourself, because this is a book not so much to devour, but to savor at leisure, like a glass of excellent wine. A short ...

Private Arrangements (#36 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on February 19, 2008 To put it simply, rarely have I read a debut book as accomplished and polished as this one. Private Arrangements isn’t perfect, but there is more than enough here to satisfy readers tired of formulaic romps and longing for books as ...

Ravishing the Heiress (#42 on our Top 100 Romances List)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on June 22, 2012 When I opened this book, I fully expected it to be unequivocally wonderful. I haven’t read the first book in the series, but I don’t need to – it’s Sherry Thomas, and I trust that she’s going to tell a damn good story. Well, sh ...

His at Night (#87 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on May 20, 2010 His at Night is the first Sherry Thomas book I've read since Private Arrangements, a book I liked but didn't love. To my mind, this one's better, and certainly worth the anticipation and buzz it's receiving. The hero and heroine are both ...

A Conspiracy in Belgravia

Reviewing mysteries is always a challenge as anyone who’s tried it will know.  And with one of this calibre, it’s even more difficult, because I want to tell you just how GOOD this book is, but I can’t tell you too much for fear of giving too much away and spoiling your enjoyment.  I could j ...

A Study in Scarlet Women

I admit that when I heard that Sherry Thomas, one of my favourite and without doubt one of the finest authors of Historical Romance currently writing was going to be shifting genres and embarking on a series of Historical Mysteries, my first thought was to go and curl up in the corner with a box of ...

My Beautiful Enemy

So, here’s where I make my confession that this is my first book by Ms. Thomas. It’s a literary crime that it took me this long to pick up one of her spellbinding stories, but I’m paying my penance by devouring her back catalogue, I promise. Regarding this work, while I really liked a lot of p ...

The Burning Sky

Most readers probably recognize  Sherry Thomas as an author of superb historicals.  The Burning Sky, set in an alternate world that intersects somewhat with 1880s England, marks her first foray into YA. I enjoyed the characters and the world created for them, and this book would definitely go on m ...

The Immortal Heights

The Immortal Heights is the final book in Sherry Thomas’ YA fantasy Elemental Trilogy, and brings to a very satisfying conclusion the story of Prince Titus of the House of Elberon and Iolanthe Seabourne begun in The Burning Sky and continued in The Perilous Sea. I don’t normally read Young Adu ...

The One in My Heart

This book is a departure from the Sherry Thomas norm. First, it is a contemporary romance and second, it is written in the first person point of view. Well, a good writer is a good writer no matter the genre and I really enjoyed Sherry Thomas’ contemporary debut. I think her historical romance fan ...
