5-STAR REVIEW: ANGELIKA FRANKENSTEIN MAKES HER MATCH by Sally Thorne

The Description

Publication Date: September 6, 2022

For generations, every Frankenstein has found their true love and equal, unlocking lifetimes of blissful wedded adventure. Clever, pretty (and odd) Angelika Frankenstein has run out of suitors and fears she may become the exception to this family rule. When assisting in her brother Victor’s ground-breaking experiment to bring a reassembled man back to life, she realizes that having an agreeable gentleman convalescing in the guest suite might be a chance to let a man get to know the real her. For the first time, Angelika embarks upon a project that is all her own.

When her handsome scientific miracle sits up on the lab table, her hopes for an instant romantic connection are thrown into disarray. Her resurrected beau (named Will for the moment) has total amnesia and is solely focused on uncovering his true identity. Trying to ignore their heart-pounding chemistry, Angelika reluctantly joins the investigation into his past, hoping it will bring them closer. But when a second suitor emerges to aid their quest, Angelika wonders if she was too hasty inventing a solution. Perhaps fate is not something that can be influenced in a laboratory? Or is Will (or whatever his name is!) her dream man, tailored for her in every way? And can he survive what was done to him in the name of science, and love?

Filled with carriages, candlesticks, and corpses, Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match is the spooky-season reimagining of the well-known classic that reminds us to never judge a man by his cadaver!

The Review

Author Sally Thorne delivers a new twist on the classic tale of Frankenstein by serving up a hilarious historical rom-com focusing on Victor Frankenstein’s younger sister in Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match.

Make no mistake, Angelika may be playing out a storyline created in the 18th century, but she is a bold, intelligent woman who serves as her brother’s assistant in the laboratory. While definitely a bit on the odd side, she yearns for her happily ever after. Meanwhile, Victor is the epitome of the mad scientist who is focused on his efforts to bring a man back to life.

The trouble starts when the siblings succeed in their scientific adventures, creating not one but two men. The construction phase was quite entertaining as the two found cadavers and then “mixed and matched” the various body parts. Angelika’s efforts were quite strategic since she was building the perfect man who she then planned would be her forever companion.

The author could have wrapped up the story at that point, but then we would have missed out on all the drama. While Will may be Angelika’s creation, he has some thoughts of his own about his future…and they might not include Angelika.

Full of twists and turns, the author puts a spin on a classic tale that features well-developed characters and witty dialog. Complete with a love-addled pig and a cranky housekeeper, Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match is a delightfully funny story.Buy Links

REVIEW AUTHOR

Amy Wilson
Amy Wilson
My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
