I enjoyed book one, so I already had high hopes for book two. Which, they each can be read as a stand-alone. And it does not fail.
I’ve read one review where they compared it to the Ghostbusters and a retelling of Jane Eyre, which I have never read before.
But here is what this book is about. Jane Eyre can see ghosts after having a shoddy childhood as she was stuck in an orphanage. Until one day she finds an opening for a governess. But before she goes, there is a murder at her orphanage and the group called the society is coming to investigate. There’s a ghost at a local bar and they plan on getting answers. At this time a lady going to a bar without being accompanied was very unlady like unless she was a lady of the night.
I won’t say more but this book wasn’t as funny as the first but I enjoyed this storyline a lot more. It seemed to have a cuter romance to it especially for two characters. And the pleasant thing about these stories is that each author takes a character. So there’s not more than one mindset to so some characters and they don’t get all the spotlight.
These authors really know how to mix the fantasy of the ghost world to mixing it with that day and age. At how little Gents and women chatted with one another and how some of things they did was extremely risky. Especially with a woman showing her bare leg. And what’s nice about books in the series is that the writing is not to the same style of the times. If it was I’d say for us normal readers it would hard to read old English writing which we read Beowulf or Canterbury Tales. So overall this book was amazing and I didn’t want it to end. It was one of my higher fantasy books that I’ve read this year and will be a favorite for the year.
