***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Moira Gear is tired of being ignored. After years of begging to join her brother’s investigative firm, she’s off to seek her fortunes in the great tunnels of Water London. She’s needed here, even if no one else thinks so. Street children are disappearing every day, but only she appears to notice. That leaves just one option – save them and, in the process, establish herself as private investigator. Patrick Clock is THE investigator of the well heeled in Water London and all surrounding hubs. Taking only the best cases, he’s earned quite the laudable reputation among both the municipal force and the common citizens. He wants nothing other than to focus on his work, but while out on a call, he spies a woman with a remarkable eye and a talent for trouble. What choice does he have but to follow her? Their plans didn’t exactly involve each other, yet Patrick and Moira find themselves tangled in a web of danger and lies. As their temporary partnership tumbles dangerously close to love, they must each find the courage to save the waters of London and each other.
This is the first book I have read by new to me author Pamela Lyn and it was definitely a fun read. Steampunk is one of the bigger up and coming genres in my opinion and this book is a good one for people who may be unsure about trying it to jump in with as there is a good mix of mystery and romance thrown in too.
The characters and setting are both well written and the relationships believable but at times thigns moved a little to quickly and jumped around a little for me hence the 4 not 5 star rating. That being said I think this would be enjoyed by a large number of readers.
4 stars form me and I look forward to the sequel. V””V
