Historical mystery


Library




I gave it an audio go, and even if I liked it, well I have read 4 and it was weird jumping in at 5. I might just prefer a real book.




Jack the Ripper is terrorizing London.


Veronica can't stop thinking about Stoker, and finally finally getting him to bed. The attraction between them was through the roof in this one. She had it bad.




Her father's family contacts her about a case.




There is mystery, drama and danger. I do like this series. Eh, I do not have much more to say. A fun and good series!




Narration


well, not as Stoker sounded in my head.One should do these from book 1




Veronica Speedwell and her natural historian colleague Stoker are asked by Lady Wellingtonia Beauclerk to help with a potential scandal so explosive it threatens to rock the monarchy. Prince Albert Victor is a regular visitor to the most exclusive private club in London, known as the Club de l'Etoile, and the proprietess, Madame Aurore, has received an expensive gift that can be traced back to the prince. Lady Wellie would like Veronica and Stoker to retrieve the jewel from the club before scandal can break.




Worse yet, London is gripped by hysteria in the autumn of 1888, terrorized by what would become the most notorious and elusive serial killer in history, Jack the Ripper--and Lady Wellie suspects the prince may be responsible.




Veronica and Stoker reluctantly agree to go undercover at Madame Aurore's high class brothel, where another body soon turns up. Many secrets are swirling around Veronica and the royal family--and it's up to Veronica and Stoker to find the truth, before it's too late for all of them.

  2. I've made that jump from reading the physical books in a series to audio. I can be a bit jarring to hear someone else read characters that you already have mental voices for them.

  8. Yes funny how we have a voice in our head for characters. I listened to the J.
    D. Robb books from the beginning so those voices are firmly in my head when I do read a print copy.

  9. Yeah, sometimes it can feel a little weird switching from print to audio in the middle of a series. Hard to get used to.

  10. I've listened to a few in audio after starting the series in print and I struggled with the narrator, too. It's a fun series.

  13. I love this series so much. I have listened since the beginning, so the voices all fit for me, but yes... starting with audio after reading that does sometimes happen.
