Kort biografi
Evie Dunmore is the USA TODAY bestselling author of Bringing Down the Duke. Her League of Extraordinary Women is inspired by her passion for romance, women pioneers, and all things Victorian.

In her civilian life, she is a consultant with a M.Sc. in Diplomacy from Oxford. Scotland and the great outdoors have a special place in her heart and she goes up to the Highlands whenever she can. Since she cannot take the mountains back with her, she just keeps adding to her already extensive collection of woolly tartan blankets. (Author Website)

DNF at 32%. Incredibly boring with zero chemistry between the leads, and no real tie to the forced use of the suffragette movement. The idea wasn’t fully developed so everything felt flat and one-dimensional.

Fine finish to an excellent series. Really enjoyed the epilogue.

Geez o Pete, this book was a piece of garbage.
It started out alright. I don't love extremely feminist characters in general since most are annoying, but I thought I'd give this a try since it is about women being able to vote (and it has an artist). I quickly ran into issues though.
Hattie REFUSES to take any accountability for her own actions. She is a perpetual victim and blames her decisions on someone else EVERY SINGLE TIME. As you can imagine, this got old fast.
There is so much inner monologue about politics and feminism. It was exhausting. 200 pages could have easily been edited out just by shortening the inner monologues. As a reader, I don't want to be beaten over the head with the message since the storyline always suffers.
What really bothered me though was when the author when full Karl Marx socialist. Suddenly, everything became about socialism and needed commentary. The characters spent multiple pages in many sections of the book explaining in detail why one must agree with it.
Also, the whole "a woman's salary should be double that of a man's" is BS. The author went on about this multiple times, justifying it with the fact that women do work in the house after work. I hate to break it to her but men do work at home as well. It just often looks a little different in traditional settings.
I forgot to mention earlier, but why in the world should we let people who attempt to murder others walk free in the streets?
Anywho, I won't ever be picking up another book by this author. It is my firm belief that when an author wants to present her beliefs, she should show and not tell. Alas, this book felt like listening to a 16-hour lecture.

(Yes, I realize that this review is more about the messages the author presented rather than the story, but the politics overtook the story for the majority of the book.)

I didn't like this very much - the MCs did not fit well together and they basically disliked one another too much that I just could not believe their pairing. This was another histrom where I questioned if the FMC was coded Jewish?
