for her, he’d fight the devil himself - Snifter of Death (Bloodstone Series, #2) by Chris Karlsen

"This is an intriguing mystery that shows us just how difficult it was for Victorian police to solve crimes with the limited means they had.

A very entertaining read. " - Petula, Goodreads

I look forward to the sequels with much anticipation." - Floryie, Goodreads

her mysterious new world - Beyond Death (Afterlife #1) by Deb McEwan
