Blank Space (Dangerous Friends Book 1) by [Young, Jennifer]

Suspense, politics, and romance combust in this action-packed thriller.

Bronte is shocked to find a stabbed man in her kitchen, and even more shocked when he effectively kidnaps her to escape. The police are involved, and their aim is more focused on Bronte’s connection to anarchist Eden in the run up to the G8 summit than to her troubles. But is all as it seems?

The suspense was palpable, and the writing energetic. For me, the right-wing/ left-wing divide depicted in the novel felt a little outdated and overly simplistic, and the plot a little predictable. I did enjoy the interaction between the protagonists though.

Book Description

When Bronte O’Hara finds an injured man in her kitchen in the run-up to an international political summit in Edinburgh, a world she thought she’d left behind catches up with her. When the man makes his escape, the police seem less interested in finding out where he went and how he came to be there than they are in Bronte’s past – more specifically, her ex-boyfriend, Eden Mayhew. Eden’s an anarchist, up to his neck in any trouble around – and he’s missing. The police are keen to find him, certain that he’ll come back. Who can she trust – and what has the Eden’s disappearance got to do with the handsome stranger?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a historical novel set in Edwardian Yorkshire. It deals with mining and the political issues of the day. The vast gap between the aristocracy and the lower classes starts to crack under the influence of the children of Netherwood Hall. Toby marries the daughter of an American and his young wife invites Russian émigré, Anna, to decorate her rooms. Meanwhile, Eve’s brother giddy with success from trading in bananas, plans to expand into luxury sea travel with the help of his new coal mine. I loved the us of the Yorkshire dialect in the speech all the way through this book.
