Synopsis: “Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you’re the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood. And when two society girls go missing, there’s no one more qualified to investigate.
Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not just one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve murder with only one clue: a strange Egyptian scarab. The stakes are high. If Stoker and Holmes don’t unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they’ll become the next victims.”
Meet Miss Evaline Stoker and Miss Mina Holmes. The sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock. Yes, Stoker and Holmes working together. I never could have imagined it, but this is a dream come true. I love both Evaline and Mina and how different they are from one another and also how their unique skills complement each other perfectly. The Clockwork Scarab was very interesting and I can’t wait to see what’s next for these ladies.
I loved the interaction between Evaline and Pix, and Mia with Inspector Grayling and also with Dylan, who happens to be from another time and place. All of the characters were interesting, even the mysterious Ankh.
This book is a must read if you like mysteries and, of course, would like to meet these strong female relatives of Sherlock and Bram.
