Descripción: About the AuthorSally Thorne is the USA Today-bestselling author of The Hating Game. She spends her days climbing into fictional worlds of her own creation. She lives in Canberra, Australia with her husband in a house filled with vintage toys, too many cushions, a haunted dollhouse and the world’s sweetest pug.From USA Today bestselling author of The Hating Game Sally Thorne comes something a little unexpected… a historical rom-com that imagines Victor Frankenstein’s sheltered younger sister, and her attempts to create the perfect man.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!Review"Take everything you’ve come to love in a Sally Thorne novel: witty banter, a sexy, toe-curling romance, and voice that pirouettes off the page, but add one part Tim Burton. Dear reader, that is what’s waiting for you, and we are OBSESSED. This is Sally Thorne at her absolute best." — Christina Lauren, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author“This book is genuinely, fantastically nuts, and I adored every single second of it! Jelly is the lonely, horny, enterprising heroine of my heart, Will is the most adorable love interest to ever grace a book, Belladonna gave me P&P 2005 flashbacks and deserves all the apples, Lizzie and Victor had me dying laughing every time they came on screen, and then there’s the plot, which is deliciously bonkers and utterly unique!” — Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis"I laughed, I cried, I fell in love. I am so impressed at Thorne’s ability to switch genres and maintain a solid, relatable author voice. With every release, she proves that she is an absolute force to be reckoned with. I have never read anything like this before— It was brilliant." — Belle Aurora, USA Today bestselling author of Raw"I was hooked the moment I read the first page, and adored every delightful word of this book. It gave me Bridgerton meets The Addams Family vibes: a little bit spooky, a little sweet, with a wonderful, loving cast of friends and a creative, heartwarming romance that kept me on edge right up until the very end...The banter is world-class, and I caught myself laughing out loud and staying up far too late to read just one more page. We need more wonderfully weird romances like this!" — Ruby Dixon, #1 Amazon Store author“Second First Impressions is about realizing that life is short, and that to live it to the fullest we must be both selfish and selfless. It urges us to soak up the beauty of each passing moment—and thi
