A lovely, easy-to-read, immersive, and gripping magical mystery-crime-story set in Victorian England.

I loved the story, the setting and (most of) the writing.

There where some minor flaws with the usage of English slang, on a few occasions the characters fell a bit short and I wished they would have been flashed out a bit more, but in the end this is a mystery-crime story and not an epic fantasy novel.

It was enjoyable to read; the story itself was intriguing and had me hooked.

I will now immediately turn to the second book of the series.

The quality of the writing is fine. This story doesn't resonate for me. I stopped reading this at 25% (page 62), because I was tired of all the extended rumination and the repetition in the rumination. Just a lot of worrying about stuff. Pointless. Annoying. I also had trouble remembering the first book, so I had to review the first and last chapters to get oriented; and then I remembered the details of the characters. I don't normally have to review in a series. Also, there seemed to be discontinuity in the second book. This book has the classic throw-in sentences to try to connect to the first story. I hate those. As a rule, they seem pointless and not useful or relevant to the current story.
Possible Spoiler: For example, the main character becomes a widow in the first book, and my takeaway from the first book was that she didn't really connect with her husband. In the second book, and the story touches on her attraction to another character, which started in the first book, and it's framed like she shouldn't have her feelings. If she didn't love her husband, and now she's widowed, why would she worry about it not being okay because she's a recent widow?

A Magical Todeur de Force

A three volume escape into a well imagined world of vineyards, old world charm and magic. If you enjoy the Europe of the past and the Arabian Nights combined with the land of the Fae this trilogy is for you.

Refreshingly inventive. I love her style. Surprise ending that I did not anticipate.
