Entertaining Mr. Pepys
Entertaining Mr Pepys is the third and sadly the final installment from Deborah Swift’s Women of Pepys’ Diary series. Since I have enjoyed the first two book of the series, I was looking forward for this book to release. I was not disappointed. It is probably my favorite of the three. Bird is a great character I loved getting to know. The author’s talent really shines through with her vivid historical details.
Entertaining Mr Pepys gets five stars from me. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series for readers who love a compelling historical fiction.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
