I almost believe in time travel now! Surely the author has actually visited Victorian London. Ranging from delicate aquarelles of the lovers to harsh Hogarth-style portrayals of gritty life, she creates a vivid and absorbing drama. Both the lead characters win one’s sympathy from the first while the many evil villains send chills up your spine. Modernism only creeps in when the reader learns Amaris’s “treatments” are actually brutal molestation. They could come right out of today’s news although ...more

I love the title Behind the Moonli Veil. I starting reading it thinking how diffrent it is than what Im used to. I became so emotionally involved whie reading it, I couldnt put it down. Jackson and Amaris so good for each other. They had what the other needed. I think it was amazing how Tabetha told this dark historical romance. It han family betrayal, murder, fear, love and trust. The research was great. I loved the references to some of the known historical facts of that period

Page Turner!

A suspense filled page turner! The story of Jack The Ripper, very well done; as most people do believe it had to have been a doctor, or someone who had studied in medical school. I have believed this scenario myself; I also believe they would have caught him if fingerprint testing, and certainly DNA results had been available during this time period. The reason I deducted a star are, I personally hate the weak minded female trope in literature; I don't care for the modern feminist

With a stunning blend of fact and fiction, Tabetha Waite has penned a flawless Victorian historical romance with an overlay of gothic.

The characters came alive for me. I cheered for Amaris, detested the two doctors, and felt stabs of pity for Jackson. The last few chapters had me gasping with surprise and wondering how the book would end.

Jack the Ripper is one of those unsolved mysteries that seem to fascinate people. The fact that Waite managed to weave so much of this c

4.5 stars. Behind a Moonlit Veil (love that title, btw) was a bit darker and more disturbing than I had expected, even knowing it was about Jack the Ripper and therefore bound to be at least a little dark. Still, it made for an engaging read. The final third or so of the book left me with mixed feelings. (view spoiler) put a damper on the ending for me. It was just so sad. I have to give Waite props for pushing the boundaries here ...more

From the first page I knew this was a five star book. Set in Victorian England, Jackson Moreland, a former Inspector, offers his services to Scotland Yard to help find a killer in East End London. Dealing with the death of his wife almost two years ago in a similar death to the Ripper's victims, Jackson thinks this will help not only his demons, but prevent another woman from dying. Into his life he meets Amaris Maxwell, his salvation, but something isn't right in her household. Jackson has to f ...more
