Blameless by Gail Carriger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh what a jewel I have found. I don't remember enjoying myself, as much as I sinfully have, in quite some time. Finding out you're pregnant is taxing enough as it is, but for your husband to deny parentage well that is distressing. Soulless Alexia Maccon journeys to Italy to find out the mysteries of her infant inconvenience, and what threat it might pose to the supernatural community.
My favorite quote in this book...
“I mean to say, really, I am near to developing a neurosis - is there anyone around who doesn't want to study or kill me?"
Floote raised a tentative hand.
"Ah, yes, thank you, Floote."
"There is also Mrs Tunstell, madam," he offered hopefully, is if Ivy were some kind of consolation prize.
"I notice you don't mention my fair-weather husband."
"I suspect, at this moment, madam, he probably wants to kill you."
Alexia couldn't help smiling. "Good point.”
