Good story

I was delighted to be offered The Detecting Duchess to read for this review. Books that take place in the Victorian era or Historical books are not normally ones that I read. I like to have the chance to read something different. I liked the name of the series A Victorian Book Shop series was intriguing to me. Although The Detecting Duchess is book 5 I didn't feel lost not having read the previous books. I would like to see more following. The story is captivating and filled with twist and turns keeping the reading struggling to figure out the mystery. I am looking forward to reading more in the series. I received a complimentary copy from the author and Great Escapes Tours.

Dollycas’s Thoughts When I reviewed The Conspiring Woman at the end of 2015 I thought that was the final book in this fantastic series but author Kate Parker wasn’t quite done with these characters. As a reader I was thrilled to receive this book and visit these characters one last time. Georgia Fenchurch should be concentrating on her wedding plans as it is just 8 days away but when a young woman is attacked right before her eyes she can’t say no to one last investigation before she says “I Do”. Her friends are not happy but her groom, the Duke of Blackford, offers his assistance in hopes to wrap the investigation as quickly as possible. Instead people go missing and more bodies pile up. A missing treasure trove of gold seems to be what all the victims have in common. Can Georgia stay safe and find the killer and gold and still make it to the church on time?? As expected the author has given us quite an intriguing mystery. It starts in Egypt with a trunk that was supposed to be filled with gold coins, payment owed by Egyptian government to various European banks, turns out to be filled with nails. The gold had been stolen, Eugenie Munroe’s uncle has been killed, the man she traveled to London with, Mr. Burke, has gone missing, and another man has been murdered. Eugenie wants the man who killed her uncle brought to justice and it seems all the suspects have left Egypt for the cooler Summer of England. So Georgia and The Archivist Society are on the case. Ms. Parker takes us back in time as only she can. Her words paint wonderful pictures in your mind of Victorian England as we follow Georgia as she goes to society balls and social calls and investigates. I totally escaped into this one. I felt like I was on Georgia’s shoulder from the first page to the last. In addition to the characters we have come to love from the previous stories we are introduced a whole new contingent that arrives from Egypt, all the suspects. Some are eliminated because they are killed and Georgia is warned to stop asking questions. She doesn’t give up and as the story continues the tension ramps up to a scary and surprising conclusion. Do Georgia and Blackford tie the knot?? You are going to have to read the story yourself to find out. I have loved every book in this series. I recommend reading this series in order to follow the progression but they each can be read on their own. This is my favorite book in the series!
