A Fantastic New Mystery Series!  

Uh oh! Actress Lizzie Dixie’s managed to get herself killed—twice. She was drowned in the Thames River the first time, and now she’s been found shot dead in Highgate Cemetery. It’s quite a feat, but no worries. Intrepid street Reporter Penny Green is hot on the trail of untangling the mystery of Lizzie’s hidden lives and buried secrets. Penny Green being on the case is a miracle at all because: (1) it’s 1883 and women don’t solve murders; (2) Penelope has already been fired for publicly disagreeing with the police; and (3) it’s 1883 and women don’t solve murders! But there she goes, helping Inspector James Blakely and noticing he’s kinda cute in every kinda way. Is it wrong to notice? Not when a book is this delightful!

What can I say? LIMELIGHT is the first entry in the PENNY GREEN MYSTERIES and I’m HOOKED! Intriguing story, compelling writing, fantastic characters are all there to entice you to follow along. It’s a must read for any detective fan, especially since Ms. Organ pays such meticulous attention to historical detail. I admire authors who can pull this off, and would liken her to Anne Perry in this regard. They both include the customs and mores of the time, and it’s downright fascinating. It's especially true when the stories document the way pioneers, represented by Ms. Penelope Green, helped pave the way for later generations of females wishing to spread their wings.

The pacing is more than good, and the storytelling superb. I loved Penny Green in all her feistiness. There’s an elegance and charm, and I do wonder if she’ll ever become closer to the equally charming Inspector Blakely. They would make such a lovely couple, going through life solving mysteries, and raising eyebrows at the same time.

Definitely download yourself a copy and see what the buzz is about. This is one I can highly recommend!
