About Solving Sophronia
Lady Sophronia Bremerton is a far cry from the typical debutante, but she’s the toast of London’s upper class for one simple reason: she’s a society columnist for the London Illustrated News, and the gentry loves seeing their exploits printed in the gossip pages. But Sophie has bigger plans—she aspires to be an investigative reporter. When a stuffy ballroom at yet another Season proves to be nothing more than the usual rumor mill, Sophie seeks respite in the library alongside four other young women who, for their own reasons, are also looking for escape. As the conversation turns to their secret ambitions, the women form a sisterhood and a bold plan: they will make their dreams a reality, no matter the obstacles. Thus begins the Blue Orchid Society.
Hearing of a murder in a London rookery, Sophie seizes the opportunity to prove her skills. Detective Jonathan Graham doesn’t believe a civilian, a noblewoman at that, should be anywhere near a murder investigation, but Sophie insists on helping bring the killer to justice. Her investigative prowess doesn’t go unnoticed by the police, especially Jonathan, who can’t decide whether this intrepid reporter is a thorn in his side or the woman of his dreams. But as the case grows more complicated and dangerous, their very lives—and their hearts—may be at risk.
This book was amazing! I loved everything about it. Before I get into why, make sure you check out Emmeline by Jennifer Moore. It’s kind of a prequel novella. In my opinion, you don’t need to read it first. But it’s FREE through the end of the month. Grab it fast!
Back to Sophronia. This book is a Victorian romance, but it’s so much more. There is murder, danger, intrigue…and Lady Sophronia is in the middle of all of it!
Lady Sophronia is such a great young woman. She’s part of the ton, but has never really felt like she belonged there. Half the time, she doesn’t feel as though she belongs with her own family. They were awful to her. But in the prologue chapter, we meet her group of friends. The Blue Orchid Society. These young women are amazing to each other. Such a support to Sophie and to each other through the whole book. I LOVED each of them. And can’t wait to see their stories.
Sophie gets herself mixed up in the murder to be solved. And that’s how she meets Detective Johnathon Graham. He puts up with a lot from Sophie. She’s kind of nosy and just wants to be be a reporter. I loved the way he grudgingly lets her help, when there’s no other way. And the way he goes along with her schemes. But what I really loved was how they become family to each other. And family watches out for each other. That’s just what he does.
This book was amazing! Make sure to read it!
