“I was determined to be both pretty and fierce, as Mother had said I could be. Just because I was interested in a man’s job didn’t mean I had to give up being girly. Who defined those roles anyhow?” -Kerri Maniscalco, Stalking Jack the Ripper.
Hi everyone! I am back with another book review! And, as you can see, I have chosen ‘Stalking Jack the Ripper’ by Kerri Maniscalco. I chose this book because I have always been interested in Jack the Ripper and the cover is really pretty and awesome!
Now onto my thoughts. What can I say about this book except….it was amazing! I loved the writing, the plot, the characters, just everything! I give this book 5/5 stars! I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel to it! And the third book of the series is coming out soon!
Now about the book, This book is about a girl named Audrey Rose Wadsworth who helps her uncle examine dead bodies. Now in the time that this book takes place her type of work isn’t deemed “proper” for young ladies. Her father doesn’t like her there and her brother, who really doesn’t mind what she does, would rather her do something else.
But Audrey really doesn’t care what society or her father says, she loves discovering and examining. Then her uncle starts helping the authorities with a series of murders. The media starts calling him ‘Leather apron’ or ‘Jack the Ripper’. They don’t know his true identity yet and all they have gotten is that he’s killing prostitutes.
Oh and also there is a strapping young man named Thomas Cresswell who helps Audrey and her uncle! And let me just say I need one! 😉
Anyways this story is filled with heartache, laughs, mystery, and so much more! Like I said, I can’t wait to get my hand on the sequel!
Let me know in the comments: Have you read this book? What were your thoughts on it? Were you shocked or did you already know when you found out who was Jack the Ripper? I would love to hear from you! ❤
As always I hope you have a great day and Spread Happiness!
