Why I liked it: Imagine the observant, logical niece of famous detective Sherlock Holmes partnering with the stalwart vampire-hunting sister of Bram Stoker to solve a dark mystery. They don’t like each other when they first meet; nonetheless, they must work together to discover who is killing society girls in 1889 London. Time travel and Egyptian mythology are expertly woven into the plot. Each chapter alternates between the two main characters’ perspectives. It was most fun to read their impressions of each other.
Words to describe this book: Humorous, exciting, strong capable women.
