Author: Deanna Raybourn
Book Title: A Curious Beginning, a Veronica Speedwell mystery
Rating: A highly recommended read.
This is the debut novel in a new Victorian lady detective mystery series by Deanna Raybourn, featuring the intrepid Miss Veronica Speedwell. If you thought the Lady Julia Grey mysteries were wonderful, well, hang onto your plush velvet roses, and stand ready with your finely honed hat pins, because this new series is just as intriguing as the first…if not just a touch better. Ms. Raybourn spins a perfectly plausible yarn of mystery and political intrigue to rival the wild-and-woolly tales of Mr. Clive Cussler’s uninhibited imaginings.
So, pickup your books and get to reading, because the second in the series is presently available, with a third becoming available in the foreseeable future.
I look forward to each and every one.
