I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I don't think we got to know enough about the characters. Their relationship moved slowly, which seemed right, but then jumped way ahead of what felt natural for the pace of their romance. SPOILER The proposal actually suited the situation, but their "I love you" declarations seemed awkward and unnatural for their characters and their romance.

In book 6 of the Gaslight Chronicles (a novella), Inspector Sebastian Brown is interrupted one evening when a woman knocks on his door looking for a doctor. Sebastian takes her next door to the doctors office. Minerva Shaw is desperate for help, her daughter Ivy is extremely ill, several of her school friends have died from the illness and Minerva is determined to get help for her. Dr. Grant is one of only a few doctors who will treat a patient without expecting immediate payment.

When the doctor is treating emergency patients, Sebastian offers to bring the child to the doctor. He escorts Minnie to her home in one of the poorer sections of London. When they enter, someone has been there ahead of them and Ivy is not there.

Sebastian solve one problem but there are many more to be solved. With the help of Minnie and other members of the Order of the Round Table, another mystery is solved for the crown.

Another book will be out on May 19 - Dragons and Dirigibles - I can't wait!

A fun steampunk story that covers the mystery of a disease that has been killing children. An officer of the Scotland yard working under the werewolf Liam finds the lovely Minnie on his doorstep and helps her with her 4 year old daughter Ivy. For some reason the child spends most of her time asleep, but offers up an important clue in one of her rare conscience moments. I still really liked this one but for some reason it fell a little flat for me. The hero and heroine of the story are older than the others when they got their love stories, which makes for a pleasant change. All in all a nice edition to the series.

Another wonderful instalment in this series. Minnerva is a real and heartfelt character and little Ivy is just adorable. I'd love to know more about the science behind this story and I'm hoping since there wasn't a clear conclusion, we may see more of these characters and this topic in the future. As usual, this author never disappoints.

It is the latest in her Gaslight Chronicles. These are fun stories with characters whom we have become familiar and new ones being added with each story. If you want a little adventure and some Romance and some, er, "hot" scenes, then these are for you. I only wish Ms. Pape would return to a full length book; but, if not, then I can feed my appetite for her stories in these stories.

Why was it so much shorter than the other ones? WHY? *sobs uncontrollably* (I wish you could see how I originally wrote that. Because it was so wrong it was funny. And embarrassing. Which is why I’m not sharing it.)

What I liked:

It’s paranormal steampunk, which is always amazing. (Okay, sometimes it goes tragically wrong, but with Cindy Spencer Pape it’s always amazing). Add to that a heroine with no powers (other than the world’s largest heart) and a hero with absurdly weak powers (aside from being a gentleman) who both have emotional baggage and … well you just have a recipe for an excellent book, right there.

Plus I just adore Ivy. Adorable little kids are like an arrow to the heartbone every single time for me.

Oh, and a mystery that’s left open just enough to leave things open for a sequel. Which I always approve of.

What I didn’t like:

Actually, this isn’t something I care about per say, but the main characters fall in love quickly. Like over the course of a few days. And while I personally would’ve liked this progress to take longer, that’s not because I don’t buy falling in love quickly.

I just wanted more.

And I kept finding myself comparing it to Cards and Caravans (which I liked more) and getting sad because … if only there was more.

(I’m greedy)

Who I’d recommend it to:

Fans of Steampunk

This series of books are well written and I can't put them down. I have to put Cindy Spencer Pape on my list of authors that I shouldn't start on a weeknight because I'm still reading at 2 in the morning.

London, 1850.
Residents must wear masks to protect themselves from the coal smoke that hangs heavily in the air. A product of the devotion to all things steam.
It is a cold and bitter night. Police Inspector Sebastian Brown is disturbed by a woman collapsing on his door step. Searching for a doctor who lives near to Sebastian, she has crossed London without a mask, 'tantamount to a death sentence,' braving the frost and fog, and the possibility of vampyres or cutthroats.'
Her daughter is deathly ill. Sebastian accompanies the woman, Minerva (Minnie) Shaw, to fetch her daughter, Ivy.
What they find is a murdered friend, a room indicating chaotic search, and a missing sick child.
Murders and a mysterious illness that has the patient sweating a black soot are just the beginning.
The black soot residue appears to be a bacteria capable of taking soot out of the body. In this London those who can, wear masks to prevent sure death. Children are being experimented on in the name of science!
Liam takes an interest and calls in his wife Wink, 'a scientific genius', to use her expertise.
It becomes clear that this, in more ways than one, is a case for the Knights of the Order (of the Round Table) to investigate.
Sebastian has some power. For one, he can tell when people are lying. A useful talent in his profession. He takes Minerva and her daughter Ivy into his home and heart. It seems that Ivy is more than most would guess.
A delightful novella that highlights a secondary character in the series. A worthy addition to Gaslight Chronicles.

A NetGalley ARC
