The clockwork scarab : a Stoker & Holmes novel
By Colleen Gleason

Stoker & Holmes
What a quirky idea to mix historical characters in a murder mystery.

“Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you’re the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood. And when two society girls go missing, there’s no one more qualified to investigate.”
The trailer is quirky too and I love the sound of the old fashioned typewriter tapping away in the background. It is of course 1889!
I think I may have to unsubscribe a few family members because I know they will want to get the e-book before I get my hands on the paperback and then they will have read it before me. Hmm!
If you check out the link above you can read an excerpt of the book. Great beginning and I love the language. It sounds so authentic.
It has a bit of everything with fantasy, mystery, steam punk and a bit of Egyptian mythology and I will definitely be looking out for this one – due this month!
