It’s Jane Austen meets Lara Croft in this delightful cozy mystery romp through Victorian Africa.
Miss Beatrice Knight has a lot to contend with: a zebra is found dead on her lawn, her flatulent horse is possessed, and a gentleman has arrived with the temerity to propose to her. To top it off, her dead husband Gideon has absconded with an automaton, threatening to return for his wife. The wife in question however soon has other issues, for a killer has moved into town with a nasty habit of carving up the victims. As luck should dictate, who should be the next target but Miss Knight herself?
Miss Kight and the Automaton’s Wife is the second case in the “Society for Paranormals” series, in which a paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death, and unsolicited suitors inconvenience her in the small town of Nairobi. Welcome to a cozy mystery series concerning Victorian etiquette, African mythology, and the search for a perfect spot of tea.
★★★★★ “I thought that the first in this series was great-this one beat it by a mile. Beatrice is wonderful! Her character keeps getting richer and more full as do the others.” — Tiz
★★★★★ “I am so invested in this series now that I can’t wait for the next book! I want to know what will happen to Bee and the rest of her paranormal friends. And just like with the first book, I adored the language, the period, and the place of the story. Another winner!” — Olivia C
★★★★★ “More merry mayhem for Miss Knight and company. I am thoroughly enthralled with this series. It’s quite intelligently written, if one is not careful, one might learn a bit about Victorian Nairobi” — Martha Williams
★★★★★ “Another great entry for this series. The plucky heroine reminds me quite a bit of Amelis Peabody. So, if you are a fan of Elizabeth Peters with some steam punk thrown in, this is the series for you. The exotic African location only adds to the enjoyment.” — Alice
★★★★★ “I really enjoy the Society of Paranormals series and read through them as fast as I could get my hands on them. Now I am impatiently waiting for the next book to be released so I can follow up on dear Beatrice and see what Vered Ehsani has in store for her next.” — Mariuccia
