Lady Amy and Lord William are back in The Sign of Death, the second book in the Victorian Book Club cozy mystery series.
It’s 1891 and William’s man of business is dead. Of course, the bumbling police zone in on William as their number one suspect. So, mystery book author Amy and her best friend William use their combined skills and statuses to solve the case! There is also romance in the air and not just for Amy’s beloved Pomeranian, Persephone.
While the pretensions of Victorian England are hard to take, The Sign of Death’s character development is great. No waiting through 27 books, and counting, for Stephanie Plum to decide between Morelli and Ranger. The mystery, however, was a bit easy to solve, if not the motive of the killer. And there was one brutal twist at the very end that I didn’t see coming. Overall, 3.5 stars!
Thanks to Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
