Hiii.....I am back with another amazing book. Foxglove by Adalyn Grace. I cannot get over the fact how amazing this story is. Perfection!!!!! This book series is now in my fav list of series. Let's get into review without any spoiling, I would not want to damper your fun.

Blurb
The captivating sequel to the Gothic-infused Belladonna, in which Signa and Death face a supernatural foe determined to tear them apart.
A duke has been murdered. The lord of Thorn Grove has been framed. And Fate, the elusive brother of Death, has taken up residence in a sumptuous estate nearby. He's hellbent on revenge after Death took the life of the woman he loved many years ago...and now he's determined to have Signa for himself, no matter the cost.
Signa and her cousin Blythe are certain that Fate can save Elijah Hawthorne from prison if they will entertain his presence. But the more time the girls spend with Fate, the more frightening their reality becomes as Signa exhibits dramatic new powers that link her to Fate's past. With mysteries and danger around every corner, the cousins must decide if they can trust one another as they navigate their futures in high society, unravel the murders that haunt their family, and play Fate's unexpected games—all with their destinies hanging in the balance.
Dangerous, suspenseful, and seductive, this sequel to Signa and Death's story is as utterly romantic as it is perfectly deadly.

MY REVIEW

The book continues from where Belladonna ends. There is another murder and the mystery is quiet deep and twisted and Signa has to solve it because now her Uncle's life is on the line. The story is getting more twisted and complex as Fate in the form human has also showed up and is looking for his bride.

So, fate is making things difficult for Signa and death. Blythe is also after finding out the mystery of her brother's disappearance on top of that she is also working to save her Father's life. Baron is again doing mysterious and shady shit. Charlotte, Everett, Eliza are also in the mix have their important part to play.

The romance and tension is top notch I have to say; the mystery that all these people are trying to solve is also amazing. We will also get to see Foxglove manor and I was enthralled with the description. i want a manor like that too....lol...minus the ghosts......The part where Signa was discovering spirits living at every corner of her home was so funny.

On the whole the book was addictive. I could not put it down. I had to force myself to breath and eat something 😅. It's a 5 star from me. I cannot wait to read Wisteria. It's coming out in August and I have to distract myself by reading another addictive book.

☙ None that i could thing of. Although I did hope Percy would be alive but I guess the story is perfect this way. 

Best Words

“You asked me who I was afraid of. “He stretched his hand out, brushing his fingers across the portrait’s frame. “My brother may be a nuisance, but I do not fear him. I do, however, fear you, Signa. I fear that someday you will break my heart.”

Adalyn Grace, Foxglove


“Too often the world did not consider women as people but as stepping stones for men. A woman was ostracized the moment she strayed from the prescribed path, left to fend for herself in a world with too few opportunities.”

Adalyn Grace, Foxglove


“Rest assured, I despise the man enough that he should have send me flowers as an apology for burdening me with his existence.” Blythe

Adalyn Grace, Foxglove


“...there was an indescribable charm to having one's hair tousled by the wind and every sound dampened by the rush of waves and the wind in her ears.”

Adalyn Grace, Foxglove
