review28962906

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.

This was a really good book and I’m really excited for the sequel!!!!

I kept seeing this book all over instagram and thoroughly enjoyed the headings for each chapter along with the few pictures they had. This book was the perfect combination of historic facts and fabrications. Jack the Ripper is a rather fascinating case considering the man – or possibly woman? – was never caught. This one followed the story of a girl studying forensics despite it being socially unacceptable for a female to said work.

I also loved her dynamic with Thomas Cresswell and I really can’t wait for their relationship to be explored in Hunting Prince Dracula! (This is the title for the sequel and will be released in September.)

The ending took me slightly by surprise as I didn’t think that the person who was Jack the Ripper in this book, would be him. I suppose it did make sense once I sat back and thought about it – there were some clues hidden in the story.
