Started well enough although with nothing new in terms of world-building. Then the plot totally shows down and turns into to a hackneyed para-romance. If that is what you are looking for, here it is.
Cherry St. Croix (a stripper name, if ever I heard one) is leading a double life. By day, she is a well-to-do young lady plagued by her family’s unfortunate reputation. By night, she is an opium addict and a “collector” or bounty hunter.
In this first entry in the steampunk/thriller series, Cherry is looking for a killer of prostitutes. The killer is particularly brutal, as the victims are found in pieces.
I’m not quite sure what to make of this novel, but I sure do like Cherry St. Croix. Despite her unfortunate name, she is a strong, yet imperfect heroine. She’s got a little bit of Stephanie Plum in her, and a little bit of Anita Blake, too.
An easy, breezy summer read!
