What I'm Reading for Fun

Thinking about spring break?  I am and have my books stacked for beach and spring-side reading.  Enjoy two fun steampunk mystery series for the teen or grownup reader in you!

Colleen Gleason's Stoker & Holmes series! Mina Holmes & Evaline Stoker partner to solve mysteries in Victorian England. Evaline is a vampire huntress and younger sibling to Bram Stoker while Mina derives her logic as a member of the Holmes family and niece of Sherlock.  They make a dynamic duo as they challenge assumptions about females and keep Victorian society safe from what lurks in the shadows. If the covers don't draw you in, the premise should.  Four out of five of the books have been released. I'm,eagerly awaiting the last in the series. 

Check out The Jackaby series by William Ritter. The paranormal detective Jackaby is well-matched with the practical Abigail as they solve crimes in 19th century New England. They are four books in this series and they have all been released. 


  1. These sound like fun books! Thank you for sharing these titles with us. I have heard of Jackaby (and it's on my TBR pile), but I hadn't heard of the Stoker and Holmes series!

  2. These sound great! I especially enjoy story that's derived from the Sherlock Holmes canon. If it's done well--and this sounds like it is--it's good stuff. Thanks for sharing!
