A Beastly Scandal

A Beastly ScandalA Beastly Scandal by Shereen Vedam
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for honest review.
A Beastly scandal is a romance/paranormal crime mystery based on Beauty and the Beast. The beauty is Lady Annabelle Marchant who has the ability to communicate with the dead an try to help them attain peace.The beast is Lord Rufus Marlesbury, the Earl of Terrance called 'Lord Terror' behind his back.He is a beast not in his looks but due to his short temper.He doesn't believe in ghosts and thinks belle is either a fraud or ignorant.
They are both set in course of murder investigation of murder of Rufus's father,each for their own reason Rufus to clear his name and Belle to clean the house of the ghost.When they cross each other sparks fly leading to a story filled with romance,humour,action and suspense.The novel has lot of interesting supporting characters that are perfectly with attractive personalities created to make the story interesting.Particularly the dog ernest is a main character in the story.
The novel is very well written and never slows down or lags in story.But the culprit is very strongly hinted early in the book and it makes it easier to guess the murderer before it is revealed.
