Arc Review | A Useful Woman

This was a fun cozy read, taking place in Victorian England (LOVE). Rosalind Thorne is a wonderful new character!

A Useful Woman

On the cusp of becoming engaged to Devon Winterbourne, her family is nearly ruined by her father’s abandonment. Rosalind Thorne begins to manage the affairs of London’s influential women, until one case brings her back in touch with Winterbourne, now Lord Casselmaine. Let me just say, I think she is better off with the Bow Street runner.

While reading this book, I was sort of in a reading slump, so this book didn’t really connect with me. I thought it was just alright, nothing I would rave about. It was good, cozy murder (which sounds weird to say).  If you like cozy mysteries, this is one you would enjoy. The research into the Victorian era was well done, I thought, and the characters were enjoyable.

It was exactly what I thought it would be: a good cozy read.

My Rating: 3/5 stars

 


I received an arc copy of this book from Berkley Publishing via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
