How are you?
I hope you are enjoyed your Easter Holiday. I did, too much chocolate yet I will always find room for more. I have been a bit too busy to blog, work has been a little hectic and I felt like focusing on reading last week which by the way I have finally caught up my reading goal on Goodreads. I will do a catch up wrap up because I read quite a few after this book.
He murdered women in cold blood. He terrorized an entire city. He taunted those of us who hunted him down.
But despite all these horrors, in the end, I could not deny it…
I was the girl who loved THE RIPPER.

I cannot remember where or when I first heard about the book but I was attracted to the synopsis of the story.
This book follows Audrey Rose, she is the niece of a physician who teaches a class on opening up bodies. She has always been fascinated with her Uncle’s work and assists him in many of his autopsies. It does sound strange that a seventeen-year-old girl gets very excited about opening up people’s bodies. A new case lands on her Uncle’s desk and Audrey is intrigued as to who the killer is.
I know pretty much what everyone else knows about Jack the Ripper and I found this book to give a really good sense of the mystery of Jack The Ripper. I found the book to be a bit predictable especially towards the end but overall it was a good book. The romantic relationship between Audrey and Thomas to very predictable, personally I think that they should be together later on in the series make their relationship frustratingly annoying for the reader to WANT THEM TOGETHER. It felt a bit rushed especially towards the end. I liked the mystery duo when they are both investigating the connection to the killer at the beginning half of the book and it just went a little messy and rushed towards the end.
I do have the second book in the series and I am going to get the third book as well. My hope for the next one to be more mysterious and focus less on the romantic relationship.
If you have read the book already, What did you think? Any thoughts let me know xx
