    INCOMING RANT.You've been warned. I AM JUST GOING TO PRETEND THAT THIS BOOK NEVER HAPPENED.I've never been this disappointed or frustrated because of a book. Escaping from Houdini was an insult to my emotions, my sanity, and the very heroes Kerri Maniscalco so lovingly created. It took a tremendous amount of effort to turn the pages, to witness the fall of the characters that always managed to put a smile on my face. My pulse accelerated and I wa...

    #1: Stalking Jack the Ripper ★★★★★#2: Hunting Prince Dracula ★★★★★#3: Escaping From Houdini ★★★★★ Let me tell you guys, I have been dying to post this review! It’s been a few months since I read this one, but the publisher did request that I wait to post my thoughts until close to the book’s release, and naturally, I obliged. Now that I can finally gush freely with you all, I have to tell you that I adore this se...

    This is such a fun series. I like the gory factors, Cresswell—especially Cresswell, and the cool themes that are intertwined. So when I saw carnival on a ship, I was incredibly ecstatic.Let me start out by saying the book started off very well—we get some killing right away. But then a mysterious guy with a face mask who is the carnival's leader, Mephistopheles, comes into the picture. This is where our girl, Audrey Rose, starts getting a lit...

    I started reading Escaping from Houdini on 7/8/18 and finished it on 7/19/18. This book is an excellent read! I find the romance between Thomas and Audrey Rose intoxicating because of their limited time, privacy, and secrecy. I like the sharp tongues exchanges between Audrey and Mephistopheles. I like all the fancy clothes Audrey Rose wears: silks and velvets as well as the decorations to the live shows. I like the mystery to Mephistopheles’ ba...

    I have been on board with these books since SJTR, so when I got my greedy hands on a arc of Houdini, I screamed at my UPS guy.As always, Audrey Rose and Thomas are perfection. I love their banter and flirting and the way they are true partners in all things. Mephistopheles is an intriguing addition and of course he was quite charming and so infuriating. There is a fairly large cast of secondary characters on the ship and I will admit to not being...

    I love this series so much oh my god give me more please
  • Sharon
    Aw, man. It sucks when a series that was on its way to becoming one of my favorites disappoints me and now, I don’t know how to feel about it anymore. I’m filled with a lot of feelings – and pretty much none of them good. I’m just going straight to the spoilers, beware: (view spoiler)[I’m just so disappointed with Audrey Rose. In the last book, she was frustrating, but at the end of the day, I admired her perseverance to pursue her pass...
  • Grace (BURTSBOOKS)
    I think it's safe to say this is the weakest of the series so far in terms of mystery and endings but I enjoyed the carnival theme so much I hardly even cared RTC
  • Nastassja
    **Full review now posted on my blog** Real rating: 2.5 starsYou don't need to be a detective to see how immature and disappointing this book is. One of the greatest failures of the year. *Mild spoilers below*Look at the gif above, this is a real life case when I want to go drinking for a week to forget all about this book. This is the moment I was dreading since book 2 came out and I had my doubts regarding it, and this is the case when I intenti...

    This series is a bit like those cosy murder mysteries, and listening to them on audio is just a whole lot of fun. Unfortunately, I think this instalment may be my least favourite. It wasn't bad but I felt myself getting distracted while I was listening, and it just didn't hold the same charm as books 1 and 2. I sincerely hope it was just me this time as I'm definitely planning on listening to the fourth (and final) book. ~~~~~~~~~~~before reading...

    Trigger Warnings: gruesome murders, descriptions of death, PTSD references, anxietyTHIS REVIEW OF ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI WAS FIRST FEATURED ON MY BLOG @ AMBSREADSIf you know me, then you know I am absolutely obsessed with Kerri Maniscalco’s Stalking Jack the Ripper series. This particular series is one that I just can’t get out of my head. In between the release of each book I can’t get the characters out of my head and find myself desperate...

    i'm going to RANT because i have a lot of feelings towards this book and they are not particularly positive.listen, i fell in love with these characters so much that i was highly anticipating this book mainly because of them. from the get-go the murder mystery in this one wasn't really appealing to me ever since we heard that houdini was gonna be in it, i honestly couldn't have cared less unlike with the previous two books but everything was fine...

    “If you wish to go, I’ll never make you stay. I might not do and say the proper thing all the time, but I do know that I love you enough to set you free.”DEADPlease resurrect me when the next book comes out, thank you *goes back to the coffin*4/5 ★★★★

    By far the best in the series! I absolutely loved this one! It had me second guessing everything and Kerri's writing is absolutely beautiful. The character growths in this book were definitely one of the plus points other than the writing, plot, romance and Thomas Cresswell. Please read this series if you haven't already because it will definitely suck you in and won't let go.
  • Veronika
    A shit ton of books have been battling for "biggest disappointment of 2018" but I think we finally have a winner!? Jokes aside, this was B A D. The plot was awfully boring and repetitive, the characters felt... different and less well-made than before, and I was SO! ANGRY! at them for how they acted. Audrey Rose, the girl who was finally 1000% in this relationship at the end of book 2 was suddenly flirting with a new guy (?) and Thomas somehow lo...

    So, in the end I think I decided to rate this a 4.5 stars. I think this is the highest I've rated a book in this series so far. Actually, looking back I think I did rate book two 4.5 stars, but I rated down.This will possibly contain minor spoilers for books 1 and 2. They will not be tagged. Any spoilers for this book will be tagged.Firstly, I need to say that the mystery in this one was a lot more well done than in the two previous books. I have...
  • Katie
    Omg this book was AMAZING! This series only just gets better and better! There has been so much growth with both Audrey Rose and Thomas since Stalking Jack the Ripper and I love. And the mystery in Escaping From Houdini was really well done. For once, I had pretty much no idea who the murderer was - everyone seemed suspect to me! This book also made me so emotional. I swear my heart broke several times during reading this book. But I loved it so ...
  • Abbey
    Oh hey, Bitter Becky is still here and the more and more I think about this book the more ticked off I get. The idea of having to re-read this book for the fourth installment seriously lessens my joy. Like I don't even want to re-read the first two books knowing that I'll run into this one again 🙄 My love for this series is slowly dying. I use to adore this series and Hunting Prince Dracula was my absolute favorite and it sucks that one book c...

    the full spoiler-free review is up on my blog! Love was a tricky, complicated thing - so morally gray. Both grand and terrible things were often done in its honor. But could anything truly be done out of love if it had the potential to hurt the one at its heart? I wavered. I will try and keep it short because I have already said everything in my blog post but: this book was so enjoyable, magical and perfectly fitting for this time of the year! ...
