Heyo bookworms! Today I’ll be doing a review for Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco which was an epic release from 2016. Thank you to Hachette Books Australia for sending my a review copy! (You guys are the best!) Without further ado, let’s get on with it.

Synopsis:

In this spine-chilling gothic murder mystery set in gritty Victorian-era London, an intrepid society girl finds herself inescapably embroiled in the investigation of a ghastly serial killer known as Jack the Ripper.

Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

The story’s shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.

Review: A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (no spoilers)

This was such a fun read! The story is based on the descendants of the original crime solving pair – James (Jamie) Watson and Charlotte Holmes – making it a refreshing take on Holmes and Watson relationship. There are many thrilling twists and turns weaved into the plot and I’m already excited to read the sequel! And having Season 4 of Sherlock TV show on air – it’s the perfect time to roll out this review I’ve been meaning to write for ages! And yup – THE GAME IS ON!

Synopsis:

The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament.

From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.
