Something Strange and Deadly

Something Strange and Deadly - I have a huge weakness for stories set in time periods where women wore long, complicated dresses and corsets and went about their daily lives with bonnets, gloves and parasols. I really enjoyed this book, it was suspenseful, horrifying and seriously entertaining at times. Miss Dennard truly delivered when it came to her characters, they where all a joy to read and the heroine and narrator, Eleanor, was a feisty and brave girl even in her petticoats. Jie was such a kickass girl, Daniel was the poster boy for working class charming boy and Joseph was a wonderful calm balancing character.The end was shocking but Eleanor has many lose ends to take care of at home before she can go off and get herself tangled into another adventure.
