Unmasking Miss Appleby is my first book by Emily Larkin. Ms Larkin has impressed me with this fantastic story. This book had threads of drama, action, suspense, paranormal abilities, sizzle, humor and phenomenal, lovable characters weaved together. Think it can't be done? It can, and Ms Larkin not only did it, she did it well. I totally enjoyed this historical romance and look forward to reading more from Emily Larkin in the future. Unmasking Miss Appleby is book 1 of the Baleful Godmothers Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I'm giving this book 5 stars only because I can't give it 6.
