Lately I’ve been on not only a murder/mystery kick, but a historical novel kick! This book covers both of those attractions for me.
Thank you netgalley, st martins press, and minotaur books for this ARC in exchange for my review.
Rose is a maid for a very attractive young bachelor named Mr. Thomas Wiltshire. In fact, she is completely attracted to him herself. The book starts off with Thomas gone missing. Rose becomes a detective on her own, trying to find him missing in New York City. She not only finds him, but digs up deeper mysteries, incountering a ghost along the way. Now, Rose is knee deep in detective work alongside Thomas, trying to figure out if this paranormal activity has anything to do with murders happening around town.
Oh my gosh, I love this book! I did NOT expect any of it! It started as your typical murder mystery, but it gets crazy! When I started reading it, I had totally forgotten about the ghost aspect until it creeps up on you. That made this book reach to a whole new level of amazing for me. The character development is phenominal and I fell in love with each and every one of them. You NEED to read this book when it comes out in the fall. Honestly, I can’t wait to read it again I had so much fun with it!
