'"The Shadow Princess"

Welcome to my review of 'The Shadow Princess" by Mary Hart Perry.
 THE SHADOW PRINCESS, by Mary Hart Perry
To catch one of history’s most notorious killers, a princess risks losing her family, her life—and her heart…
London, 1888: A year after Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee terror mounts in the city's slums.  A killer has butchered two prostitutes, the crimes brutal even by London’s hardened standards.  Rumors of the murders reach Princess Vicky, daughter of Queen Victoria and grieving widow of the German Emperor Frederick III.  When her niece Princess Maud visits, she brings with her even worse news--the Metropolitan Police have a suspect. It’s Vicky’s nephew, Crown Prince Eddy. Desperate to clear her family's name, Vicky rushes back to England.
Detective Inspector Thomas Edmondson believes there is a royal cover-up behind the killings. He will stop at nothing to expose the truth and bring a murderer to justice before he can kill again.  But when Vicky joins him in searching for the man who will become known as Jack the Ripper, neither of them foresee the overpowering attraction that will draw together the royal and the commoner—or the danger their love puts them in.

The Review
This is a very exciting story, it pulls you forward page by page. Mary Hart Perry's descriptions paint a very vivid and real picture for her audience. This story creates an excitingly unique journey for the reader. 

I quite enjoyed how approachable the characters are. The relationships between the characters tell you as much about the individuals as the descriptions of them do, making for a well-rounded cast of characters. 



All in all this is a story that I won’t soon forget. It was brilliant, well written novel by Mary Hart Perry that I`d definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.

5 Stars all the way!!!
