I received an advance of Secret Letters. Imagine you are in Victorian England and as a female you are hemmed by society at every turn. There are more things you cannot do than can and all things violent, adventurous or intelligent are off limits - for everyone other than Dora. Dora has discovered at her mother's death that her real father is not who has raised her and goes off to confront the great Sherlock Holmes only to discover that he has passed away before she can announce that she is his daughter. Dora is there to hire Holmes to help her cousin break away from a blackmailer that threatens to ruin her marriage and reputation. When the women meet a young detective who offers his services and that of his employer Dora finds herself getting pulled into more of a mystery than she bargained for and of course, falling for the young detective. This is a strong female character and it isn't your typical Victorian swoon romance
story so it is perfect for teens who enjoy historical fiction and a good mystery.
