Summary

London, 1859

Engineer Winifred 'Wink' Hadrian has been in love with Inspector Liam McCullough for years, but is beginning to lose hope when he swears to be a lifelong bachelor. Faced with a proposal from a Knight of the Round Table and one of her closest friends, Wink reluctantly agrees to consider him instead.

Because of his dark werewolf past, Liam tries to keep his distance, but can't say no when Wink asks him to help find her friend's missing son. They soon discover that London's poorest are disappearing at an alarming rate, after encounters with mysterious "mechanical" men. Even more alarming is the connection the missing people may have with a conspiracy against the Queen.

Fighting against time - and their escalating feelings for each other - Wink and Liam must work together to find the missing people and save the monarchy before it's too late....

These are fun stories with one caveat....

There is wayyy to much lip biting in these stories. If I were to bite my lip that much my lips would either fall off or be bruised for life. Thesaurus maybe? Editor? The book was the best so far.

Wink's story, better than the previous novellas

This is the fourth story in the Gaslight Chronicles and the second full length book. This book follows Wink, one of the orphans from the first book in this series. This is what I thought this series was going to be when I finished book 1. I loved following Wink and her adventures and watching her and Liam work together.

I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was very well narrated. All the books in this series have had excellent narration.

This book does draw in a lot of characters both from book 1 and the interem novellas. I do wish however that the novellas had been labeled as just that (novella additions to supplement the series) rather than separate books.

This makes a great second book to the series. I enjoyed it a lot. The characters are well done, I loved the mystery around the missing people and the mechanical men. Mostly I just loved getting to read about the Hadrian family again.

Overall this book was good enough the keep me slogging through the mediocre novellas to get to the next full length third book. I really love reading about the Hadrian family and hope future novels in this series follow those children as they find their place in life and find their perfect match.

Cybermen

I like the strong geeky women in this series. I thought of Doctor Who during this story.
