I previously reviewed Lola Montez and the Poisoned Nom de Plume, and had a chance to review the newest installment, Whip Smart: Lola Montez Starts a Revolution by Kit Brennan. It's a fun fiction book with historical and romantic elements, with enough suspense to keep the story moving - and is based on an actual 19th century dancer who had exceptional beauty and a strong personality.
It's fun to read a book about little-known historical heroines. It's even better when the book is well-written and engaging. The details of Lola's life are so interesting, I couldn't put it down! Even if you haven't read the other two, you can still pick this book up and enjoy it - but you'll get an even better picture of Lola Montez if you read the first two.
I loved the book because not only is it a fun, snappy read, (and really funny), but Lola herself is an interesting and empowering heroine to examine, especially in the context of the modern woman. As a person who does not normally read historical romance, I found myself particularly drawn to this sexy, espionage-filled account of Lola’s escapades and royal dealings. The Whip Smart series is really like a movie, and I'm sure it will be someday!
