I have to admit that I am thoroughly enjoying the books in this series. Following along with Franny and her maid as they defy all the conventions of their time to solve mysteries i s just awesome. They have a great relationship that leads to some comical dialogue. The historical accuracy seems fairly good to me though I am not an expert by any means. It's nice that it is set during a time where things are changing with new technologies that add an extra element to the story line. This book contains one strong lead female character that is fascinating in her endeavors to solve her mystery making it impossible to guess what she will do next. Girl power all the way. I highly recommend this books to fans of historical mystery novels. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
