This second installment in the A Dickens of a Crime series is a complex and highly satisfying mystery. Redmond weaves Dickensian themes—wealth and poverty, love and rejection—seamlessly throughout the story while evoking a Victorian era that feels immediate and alive. Fans of Anne Perry will love this one.

I enjoyed reading Grave Expectations. The second book of A Dickens of Crime Series is just as good as the first. Charles Dickens finds himself in yet another murder mystery, and along with his now Fiancee Kate and his friends he solves it. A good read with great characters and a very interesting plot. I'm looking forward to reading more from this Author.

I give Grace Expectations 4 stars for its murder mystery.
I would recommend this book to Historical/Mystery fans.
