Book Review of: A Curious Beginning (Veronica Speedwell #1) by Deanna Raybourn
Genre: Mystery, Historical Fiction
Veronica Speedwell has just buried the last of her benefactress aunts, and is preparing to set off on a new scientific journey. Though her occupation as a scientist and lepidopterist is extremely suspicious to the general population in 1897, Veronica doesn’t let that slow her down. Her plans are slightly derailed, however, when just after the funeral she finds herself rescued from a home intruder by a complete stranger who insists she is in danger of being abducted.
