Reviews An Unnatural Vice (Sins of the Cities, #2)

  • Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder*
    I think this is supposed to be a trilogy like Society of Gentlemen was. The first book, An Unseen Attraction, introduced endearing, naïve Clem who found his love interest and also showed his other friends, part of a close group of likeminded individuals (like Society of Gentlemen.) Besides being historical, that's where the similarities seem to end.While I enjoyed the first of the series, this one was even better. K.J. Charles gave one character...

    This book is like a Fast and Furious action movie - from the first kick of the ball, the action on the ground moves so fast that I was left breathless at the end whistle. Whilst craving for more as we are now in the middle of the story and I do want to read the end bit yesterday before tomorrow.A'la Charles this story has become quite intricate, tangles within tangles. I was indeed happy to have deducted a solution to a particular tangle before t...

    Loved this book -- characters were so real and the description of the London fog was so creepy. Fast-paced, well-written, interesting plot, and the romance was an integral part.

    K.J. Charles can do no wrong in my book; I'm eagerly awaiting the third book in this series. The gradual build up of the murder mystery is really well done and the characters are charmingly complex.

    *ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review For a while now I had wanted to read a book by KJ Charles, but somehow hadn't gotten around to it. So when NetGalley suggested this one I though "Why not?" and so here we find ourselves. The book was everything that I expected, I found myself a bit lost at the beginning, given that there was a previous book to the series that I hadn't read (and that I will now) but you could easily under...

    Another great book by K.J. Charles, I really am loving this series. Basically everything I could echo in my review for the first book of the series - the historical setting was really nicely done with such a great sense of place. The London fog sounds unpleasant but that and several other things really gave the book such a good setting. Each character's job as well was so well-researched especially how Justin managed to conduct his seances. So in...

    An Unnatural Vice is the second book in the Sins of the City series, and as such it continues the main suspense plot from the first book, An Unseen Attraction. Timeline-wise it overlaps slightly with book #1 which helped me go straight back into the storyline. Charles always manages to create strong and complex characters, and An Unnatural Vice is no exception. Justin Lazarus is an intriguing hero, with some very obvious flaws but with more than ...

    An excellent follow up to the first Sins of the Cities book. I didn't find Justin or Nathaniel as compelling as Clem and Rowley, but I did love the book, and the mystery woven throughout the series continues to be fascinating and twisting. I'm completely invested and ready for the 3rd book...and I must say I'm REALLY looking forward to what the romance in that novel is going to look like.

    KJ Charles is an auto-buy for me. I adore this series, and was so happy to get an early copy of this from NetGalley! This story built on the mystery and intrigue from the first, and added in the brilliant Justin Lazarus and his schemes. I really enjoyed this one. The two main characters grated on each other's nerves, but then found peace with each other. I really enjoyed their relationship development, and the character development that went alon...
  • Evelyn Gray
    After having enjoyed the first book in this series, An Unseen Attraction, I went into this novel with high expectations, and I wasn't disappointed. An Unnatural Vice continues the Taillefer mystery that emerged in the first book, adding layers and background to that original story, while advancing a new romance between the lawyer turned journalist, Nathaniel Roy, and the sham spiritualist Justin Lazarus. Nathaniel and Justin spend much of the boo...

    K.J. Charles does it again with this historical mystery romance. Review shortly.
  • CJ
    I've trusted KJ Charles to deliver sharp, clever reads for a few years now, and good lord she didn't disappoint with An Unnatural Vice. Clem and Rowley's story was fantastic, Nathaniel and Justin's was even better, and I'm left waiting impatiently for the sequel.I'm just as eager to find out more about the overarching plot as I am the next set of characters. I was constantly guessing and theorising during my read-through (which was ridiculously f...
