I really like this set of covers. Unfortunately it looks like only the first six mysteries were published in America. Feel free to use as bases.

I read Ashes of Roses by Mary Jane Auch, about the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist fire. Enjoyable characters, good pacing, recommended.

I'm going to make a "What have you been reading?" post so that the community doesn't fade into nothing.

My heart primarily belongs to Beyond the Western Sea, a Victorian adventure concerning emigration, a floating church, sibling devotion, a gallant actor named Horatio Drabble, and a weaselly redhead named Fred.

Then there's the Bloody Jack series, which is just begging for femslash fic. Jacky starts out as a midshipman in the British navy until she's discovered as a girl and sent to boarding school in Boston.

Philip Pullman has a series about Sally Lockhart, financial consultant and amateur detective. The third book is also begging for femslash, and The Tin Princess for F/F/M threesome. Plus the movies feature Doctor Who's Billie Piper and Matt Smith.

The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing is an absolute must-read.

I love Jennifer L. Holm's Boston Jane trilogy for the way it plays with Jane's character arc.

What about you?

Jim Taylor is a character in the Sally Lockhart series - The Ruby in the Smoke, The Shadow in the North, The Tiger in the Well, and The Tin Princess. He is awesome and deserved a macro.
