I truly enjoyed this book...and yet, it failed to rock my world because (see explanation in review).

Over the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I read this first book in the Lady Julia Grey series and I must say, it was quite enjoyable. There were a few factors that intrigued me to pick it up and give it a go. First, these are Victorian era murder mysteries. I was curious how the restrictions placed upon women would play out for Lady Julia - would the author be lenient or by the book so to speak for the times of her setting. Deanna chose to stay solidly true to the times and doing so meant the bendables of fiction could stray in other areas instead. What was most lovely...
