Nefertiti’s Heart by A.W. Exley
This is a great steampunk read! The book follows Cara Devon, who is back in London for the first time in seven years to tidy up her father’s affairs following his death. To the outsider, her father has nothing but his house left to his name, but Cara knows that he spent his fortune collecting rare and precious artifacts and hiding them throughout London.
Viscount Nathaniel Trent offers his services to help Cara sell off her father’s artifacts, but they soon discover that one of the artifacts is somehow involved with a series of murders that has been going on around London.
I listened to the audio book version of this story and, for the most part, I loved it. My only complaint is that when the narrator does her impression of a man’s voice, she sounds like a pervy 80-something-year-old man. Not great when one of the main characters is supposed to be young and attractive!
