    1. Between a 2.5 and 3 star rating.This story falls in the historical steampunk genre which is a favorite of mine, combined with a procedural murder investigation which was so numbingly formal that it didn t even inspire my curiosity The writing style didn t help either It was stilted and dry, the sex scenes were cold and unemotional they were descriptive, but not sensual to the point that I could have easily done without them At the end, I just wanted to finish this book, so it wasn t a dnf I woul [...]

    2. Who killed Permelia Westbrook Could it be her husband, who was forced into the marriage by his family Her friends, who seems to be swimming in vicious secrets Or could it be her brother in law, a man who spends his days tinkering away in his workshop and who admittedly could not stand his brother s wife Whoever did the dirty deed, Detective Victor Van Voorhis is on the case and determined to get down to the truth Even with the high and mighty, that make up Westbrook s social circle, doing everyt [...]

    3. Steam punk erotica may sound like a very specialized genre, but if the novel has characters with depth and believable motivations, a very readable style, and an intriguing plot, the amazing inventions and hot encounters are icing on the cake, even if you don t usually look for books with two hot men sharing everything in a dirigible and if that is what you look for, you won t be disappointed Jana Denardo s If Two of Them Are Dead does all of it and does it well, and throws in some intriguing psy [...]

    4. A very interesting steampunk story, though the real star is the murder mystery of why someone would kill Permelia Westbrook Victor Van Voorhis is called in to investigate the death of a higher class citizen in her own home In doing so, he is introduced to a man to whom he has an immediate attraction The problem is, Permelia s brother in law, Abraham Westbrook, can only be considered a possible suspect for the murder There are additional problems, Abraham is a widower, with three young children, [...]

    5. A Joyfully Jay review 4.75 starsMy entire review can simply be this if you like steampunk, buy this book If you like a good murder mystery, buy this book If you like both, then run out and buy this book right now I was drawn in from the very beginning, and I didn t put it down until I read the very last page.Victor was the heart of this story and I enjoyed him to pieces He is kind and stalwart and determined Everything a good detective should be He thoughtfully and methodically sifted through th [...]

    6. Really enjoyed this Loved the murder mystery setting and the period Victor and Abraham endeared themselves to me from the start, especially Abraham with his inventions, and I wanted to keep on reading both to find out whodunit and to see how the guys progressed with their struggle to see each other in a world that would frown on their love Great read.

    7. Great steampunk world, strong whodunit murder mystery with a believable romance I enjoyed both the setting and the characters so much that I hope this is just book one in a series The romance ends abruptly so I d love to see our rich eccentric inventor build a life with our middle class copper.

    8. This is an absolutely delightful, old fashioned murder mystery There is romance but it takes second place to the mystery Good writing, good story, quirky characters.
