ARC Review of Secrets of a Soprano by Miranda Neville

First let me say that I will read anything Miranda Neville writes, and I have!!  Her books are well written with intelligent characters who have a deep morale core, are not necessarily beautiful but have tons of sex appeal and witty, snappy dialogue.

Teresa Foscari is a famous opera singer who is singing in London for the first time.  She has sung all over the world for Kings and Emperors, but she is hiding a secret.  She is broke and needs the money from her new engagement at the Tavistock Theater. There is also the chance that she will run into the only man she has ever loved. She was very young at the time and his betrayal drove her into the arms of her late husband, who was a thief, a wastrel and unfaithful

Maximilian Hawthorne is a lover of Opera and has financed and built an Opera House in London.  When he hears that Teresa is singing at his rivals theater he cannot resist going and listening to her.  She is still striking and her voice is astounding, even better than when he was younger.  She is the reason that he loves Opera. They met years ago and fell in love.  He was going to marry her and travel the world listening to her sing. But she betrayed him and has vowed never to love or get married.  Now she is in London and he doesn't know how he feels.

This story is beautiful and unique and I loved every minute of it.  Max and Teresa are made for each other, but will the past keep them apart or bring them together?  I recommend that you read this book and if you not read any of Miranda's books, do so, you will not regret it.

  1. Thank you for the review, Jaci. I've just downloaded it onto my Kindle. I had the pleasure of meeting Miranda last year in London. Lovely lady and Briish born too.
