About Blame It on the Brontes

My thoughts: BLAME IT ON THE BRONTES  is a contemporary romcom. Athena’s on sabbatical as a last-ditch effort to save her teaching job at a California university. She’s determined to write a book that unmasks the bestselling author of a series of erotic novellas based on classic literature. Who happens to live in Athena’s hometown.

A great plan until she discovers that the cafe she’s planned on working in to help her investigation has changed hands. It’s now owned by her former boyfriend, the super hunky Thorne.

My thoughts about Blame It on the Brontes

If you love Shakespeare, the Bronte sisters, academia, or crazy family shenanigans, this is for you.

  • A look at publish or perish in academia
  • Smalltown life
  • The perils of moving home with a high maintenance family including divorced parents
  • Second chance romance
  • Opposites attract/sunshine and grump
  • Close proximity
  • Some delicious food descriptions
  • Even more delicious descriptions of attractive men
  • Swoony romance
  • Laugh out loud moments
  • LGBTQIA+ rep
  • Pug mug!
  • Family, bio and found

This is a fast-moving and fun novel with a lot of humor and heart with swoony romance. Athena is curvy and sarcastic while Thorne is quiet and reserved. They have serious chemistry. And some serious secrets they’re keeping from each other. Enjoy the ride!
