Review; Romancing the Inventor by Gail Carriger

Recently, I read the novella Romancing the Inventor by Gail Carriger and today I'll post my review of the book.

Description from Goodreads
Imogene Hale is a lowly parlourmaid with a soul-crushing secret. Seeking solace, she takes work at a local hive, only to fall desperately in love with the amazing lady inventor the vampires are keeping in the potting shed. Genevieve Lefoux is heartsick, lonely, and French. With culture, class, and the lady herself set against the match, can Imogene and her duster overcome all odds and win Genevieve's heart, or will the vampires suck both of them dry?

This is a stand-alone LBGTQ sweet romance set in Gail Carriger's Parasolverse, full of class prejudice, elusive equations, and paranormal creatures taking tea.

Delicate Sensibilities? This story contains women pleasing women and ladies who know what they want and pursue it, sometimes in exquisite detail.

My Thoughts on the Book
Personally I found this an okay read, but nothing more than that. Imogene was portrayed as this needy, desperate, and clingy damsel in distress, Genevieve was stuck-up, and the whole plot/storyline with all the drama in the hive was just annoying, and I felt the plot/story could have had more "meat" to it, so to speak.
