So as you all know, I recently brought a kindle. Now I am an orthodox ink and paper kind of gal and I do like the feel of a proper book in my hands so it was a very risky step. Plus the light on my phone or on tablets always made feel nauseous and gave me a migraine so I avoided ebooks like the plague.

However, the Kindle is slightly different. It's not got the blue light so I don't get migraines, it's really light and small so it can fit into 90% of handbags that I have, it carries multiple books on it so if I finish one I can start another and I have found ebooks are relatively cheaper than your hardbacks.

Don't get me wrong I haven't given up my dream of building my own flesh and blood library. This just means I can buy books that I have read, loved and would highly recommend to friends and family.

And to put the cherry on the cake, I have noticed I have been reading a lot more. Now I don't know if this is due to the glamour of having a new toy but I finished this book within a couple of days and couldn't wait to get on to the next one.

It could also be very possible that this is due to this seat-gripping, page-turning mystery. I think this was the best book that I could have chosen for the first time use of my kindle.

This book is about our protagonist March Middleton who travels to London to live with Sidney Grice, a renowned personal detective who tackles interesting cases in Victorian London. Now I can't give you many details in terms of the actual story because I don't want to ruin it for you but I will say that the plot is clever and intricate and I could not have guessed the villain and the method through which the murder was accomplished.

My favourite character without a doubt is March who had quick wit and very shrewd observations and is definitely not flustered by her overbearing, proud and almost rude guardian. She may just be right-hand woman but her observations and story style make the story. She is relatable and I cannot wait for her to continue narrating the cases of Sidney Grice.

I highly highly recommend this book and I cannot wait to continue reading the next book in the series. Amusing, fast-paced and definitely keeps you guessing....the proof is in the pudding!
