My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Delightful new entry in the amateur lady detective sub-genre, as Deanna Raybourn begins a new Victorian mystery series.
The mystery surrounding Veronica Speedwell's background is intriguing, though I figured out what the big reveal was fairly early. Nonetheless, the characters are engaging enough that we can expect more adventures in the future, and the secondary characters offer their own intrigue and secrets to keep things going.
The dialog was snappy, the settings were delightful, and Ms. Raybourn has another winner on her hands with Miss Veronica Speedwell.
