The Damsel and the Daggerman takes Delilah’s fans back to Criminy’s caravan. I was so pleased by this. The past to books in the Blud series have had readers in the city and I truly do prefer the carnival setting. This sweet novella can easily be read as a stand-alone. As far as I can tell Jacinda and Marco have never had a role in any of the previous reads. I have skipped the anthology in the series though.

Jacinda makes her way to Criminy’s caravan in the hopes of getting an insider look into caravan life so that she can pen a tell all to sell to the sheltered Pinkie’s in the city. She has not even settled into her first interview before she hears of the daggerman and his dangerously deadly past. She knows there must be a story there and she immediately sets her sights on getting it. Marco is not at all what he appears to be. This just makes Jacinda even more determined to find out what he is hiding.

This read is cute, quick, and oh so sweet. Readers are treated to many of the eccentrics that is simply Sangland.

    I’ve been seeing posts saying that this book had released and I was wondering if it was any good. Now I know 😉 Thanks for the review.

    I loved this one too and like you, I was happy to be back with the caravan- and Criminy. Looking forward to the last one now. Sigh…
