Publisher's Summary

Where African myth meets Victorian manners
Armed with Victorian etiquette, a fully loaded walking stick, and a dead husband, Beatrice Knight arrives in colonial Kenya desperate for a pot of tea and a pinch of cinnamon. But she'll need more than that if she's to unravel the mystery of the Ghosts of Tsavo without being eaten in the process. All this while surviving the machinations of her best friend's dashing godfather and the efforts of her safari guide to feed her to any lion willing to drag her away. What is a ghost-chasing widow to do?
Ghosts of Tsavo is the first case in Society for Paranormals, in which a paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death, and unwanted suitors inconvenience her in colonial Kenya. Welcome to a cozy mystery series concerning Victorian etiquette, African mythology, and the search for a perfect spot of tea. If you enjoy historical mysteries, adore Victorian steampunk, appreciate British humor, or would love to experience adventure in colonial Africa, download Ghosts of Tsavo to start your supernatural safari today.

Critic Reviews

"A quirky and lovely spin through sweltering Nairobi, this story will have readers cheering.... The use of Victorian English is probably the best example ever, outside actual Victorian texts. Beatrice is a spunky, determined woman, but at the same time wholly a model of Victorian females. Every character is fleshed out. Fans of historicals and paranormal will love every minute of this story!" (InD'tale Magazine)
"A novel rich in imagination, detail, and surprises requires a narrator who can embrace every element of the story--Alison Larkin is that narrator. She is spot-on in her portrayal of Beatrice Knight, a member of the Society for Paranormals, and her spectacular ghost-hunting adventures in colonial Nigeria with her dead husband in tow. Though it may take a moment for listeners to acclimate to Larkin's thoroughly posh tones, her dedication pays off, and Bee's dry humor and quick wit shine through, making listeners feel as if they're chatting with an old friend. Her accents are consistent, and her sympathetic portrayal of each member of the diverse and zany cast rounds out a stellar series opener." (AudioFile)

Fun and were-lions

Africa, supernatural, lore, fantasy, steampunk, cozy-mystery, humor

Weirdly good. Set in time around the turn of the 20th century, yet filled with fantastic creatures and more. The characters are great fun and the lore of the continent of Africa is fascinating. There's plenty of subtle and overt humor, and the situational humor is guaranteed to have any reader snorting their caffeine. The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers, just enjoy the unraveling of the mystery.

Glad I took a chance!

I normally just use my credits on books by writers I know and reserve any risk-taking for books from the public library. However, a friend at work, who frequently gives me book recommendations, suggested this one about three times. I finally bought it and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed it so much, I bought the second one (also highly recommended by my friend).
