#Review #Video of These Shallow Graves by @JenWritesBooks with #Giveaway @randomhousekids

Set in gilded age New York, These Shallow Graves follows the story of Josephine Montfort, an American aristocrat. Jo lives a life of old-money ease. Not much is expected of her other than to look good and marry well. But when her father dies due to an accidental gunshot, the gilding on Jo’s world starts to tarnish. With the help of a handsome and brash reporter, and a young medical student who moonlights in the city morgue, Jo uncovers the truth behind her father’s death and learns that if you’re going to bury the past, you’d better bury it deep.

Although I didn't care for   other series about mermaids.  This one hit it out of the park for me.  With a feel like the Madman's Daughter and some great twists this one I devoured in a day.  The author did a wonderful job showing us how the woman lived back in the 1890's and it made the story flow so effortlessly.  

The characters were wonderfully balanced for this story and I don't see how it could be any better!  Even if you don't care for historical fiction you should really check this one out!
