Belladonna Review

Belladonna Review

This book. I just knew it was going to be good, something in my gut knew it, and it did not disappoint. I’d put Belladonna off for ages, mostly because I was in a massive reading slump and I didn’t want anything to affect my enjoyment of it. But, in the end I just couldn’t wait any more and I’m so glad I just went for it.

Our FMC, Signa’s parents mysteriously dropped dead when she was just a baby. Since then she has been passed from relative to relative, Death, following her everywhere she goes. Now, she’s only months away from her twentieth birthday and inheriting her fortune. If she can just get through those months with nobody dying around her that is.

This book had all the ingredients of a high society, murder mystery with a wonderful addition of supernatural goings on, and a delightful splash of romance. From the off I was immediately suspicious of everyone, stroking my Poirot moustache as I tried to piece together the puzzle alongside Signa. Many of my suspicions proved to be correct, but the story didn’t feel predictable at all. Instead, it was just that wonderful satisfaction of everything slotting into place towards the end. I loved all the characters, especially Blythe’s confidence, and of course Death… 

If this book is still on your tbr, get to it at once and if it’s not then you should definitely add it. I highly recommend it and can’t wait for the sequel, Foxglove which is set to be released in August 2023.
