Moonlight & Mechanicals - Review

Moonlight & Mechanicals (Gaslight Chronicles #4)
by Cindy Spencer Pape
Book Blurb
London, 1859

Engineer Winifred "Wink" Hadrian has been in love with Inspector Liam McCullough for years, but is beginning to lose hope when he swears to be a lifelong bachelor. Faced with a proposal from a Knight of the Round Table and one of her closest friends, Wink reluctantly agrees to consider him instead.

Because of his dark werewolf past, Liam tries to keep his distance, but can't say no when Wink asks him to help find her friend's missing son. They soon discover that London's poorest are disappearing at an alarming rate, after encounters with mysterious "mechanical" men. Even more alarming is the connection the missing people may have with a conspiracy against the Queen.

Fighting against time—and their escalating feelings for each other—Wink and Liam must work together to find the missing people and save the monarchy before it's too late...

My Review
I got this book from the publisher and netgalley for an honest review. Winifred "Wink" Hadrian is a smart woman who knows what she wants. What she wants is Inspector Liam McCullough a family friend. The problem is because he had a bad past and believes he may carry bad genes like his father. Being a werewolf is bad enough but he doesn't want to take he chance that he may turn bad on Wink. His solution is to set her up with one of the Knights of the Round Table. The problem is people are disappearing and they have to work together together to solve the mystery. They will have to try to stay safe and fight their attraction to one another at the same time.

Wink is a girl who loves to event things and isn't the normal woman 1859. She is stubborn knows what she wants and will do anything to save her friends and the ones she loves. Liam has a dark past but it just makes you want him more. I love him and all the things he will do to fight his attraction to Wink. There is so many great characters in this book that I can not wait to read more about.

I haven't read the other books in this series but that didn't face me one bit. I wasn't lost and really enjoyed this book. I will pick the others up to read more of this exciting world. This book combines steampunk and paranormal together in an amazing blend. You have werewolves, vampires and so much more. The inventions are amazing and i could picture them in my head. You are kept guessing to the end who is behind the disappearing people, what is happening to them and what will Wink and Liam do. These two belong together you can tell and you really want to shake them sometimes to get them to see what you as you are reading can clearly see. I can't wait to get the rest of this series to see the other characters stories. The author does a great job in writing this book.
