A Dark Steel DeathA Dark Steel Death by Chris Nickson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

December 1916. While the Great War continues it would seem that Leeds is housing an arsonist. But then a man is shot dead by a sharpshooter. Is he the saboteur? Is he against the war or does he have another motive, and are the two incidents connected. Deputy Chief Constable Tom Harper has put together a team to investigate.
An interesting and entertaining, well-plotted historical mystery. Another good addition to this enjoyable and well-written series with its cast of likeable and diverse characters.

Darcy's Awakening: A Pride and Prejudice VariationDarcy's Awakening: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Georgina Young-Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Elizabeth Bennet is in mourning, and Darcy is unofficially engaged to Caroline Bingley when they meet at the Meryton Assembly. So how can they ever reach a happy ending.
Hopefully one day I will read this author's story of the Colonel and Mary and as a main story and not just as a background mention in some of her books.
An enjoyable, well-written story. Another re-read.
