Publisher's Summary

The arrival of Buffalo Bill's Wild West show in London brings trouble. When the sharpshooter who beats Willie at poker is murdered, Matt and India investigate. Willie is convinced the victim cheated, but no one knows how until India discovers his secret - he was a paper magician.

When their list of suspects grows to include a member of the mysterious magic Collector's Club, they uncover a spy. But who is he working for? And what does his employer want?

As danger circles, secrets are revealed, and India struggles to keep her own secret hidden from Matt. But when her grandfather introduces her to a man who can change her life, India must decide if she wants her life to change at all.

Disappointed!

Just had to throw in a profanity - so unnecessary! Although this is also a romance novel, it was much sappier than the others in this series. Preferred the cleaner ones so much more.

Wild west comes to London

C.J. Archer, the author, brings the wild wild west and it is a wild wild story. She continues to weave historical facts in her stories. Considering Matt’s team being from America and spending time out west I found it a refreshing inclusion in the story line. The humor comes at the most unsuspecting times. There is danger, love, heartbreak, jealousy, fear and murder, which keeps you enthralled in the story.

When one of our team becomes a suspect in a murder the group rallies to solve the murder. The detective work is faster paced. India being a magician is still central to the story line. Magician are being discussed more in the papers and more magician are being found. The fear of them being discriminated against of even killed is still an issue. India and Matt differ on should she tell that she magician. India is very strong willed and independent goes about what she wants despite Matt’s feelings. Yet, with Matt respecting her independence, she continues to keep secrets.

The wedding ceremony does not get as much story time, which I found disappointing. Other characters story lines were discussed i.e. Cyclops's romance.

Amazing narration of the story

Marian Hussey is such a talented narrator, and really brought the story to life. She captured the moments in the book so well and performed the various accents amazingly, which is difficult to do.

I love this series!~

Another fun and exciting addition to the series. It felt like old friends to hear the narrator and all the people that seem like members of my own family - of course - except for the magic part (rats!).

I hope the series continues - !!

Wasted my money 💰 again on this series

In the last 2 books, I starting to think the heroine is an idiot and not likable or deserving of the hero. I mean the villains wants to use her and she is all like ok. I.e allowing her name be known. She should say no! And beat the publisher guy senseless if he rat her out. Also, she have no business hanging out with those villains so collects magic items. It makes me want to 😱 scream!
Also, willie and the aunt is getting on my nerves. Willie too selfish and aunt is so whiny 😫
If next book going toward this direction, my support for this series and author ends here!

Wait! Maybe I’m the idiot for supporting up to know! [bang my head against the wall]

Thank you, Ms. Archer

There are many interesting twists in this installment, along with a bit of Americana. Ms. Hussey continues to bring Ms. Archer’s words to life with her varied accents. There are several mysteries solved by the end, along with the unfortunate murder of an American magician who cheats at cards. Thank you, Ms. Archer for a most satisfying ending to this volume. I look forward to listening to the next installment.

Finally, and yet...

Totally engrossed since Book 1!!! Don't want it to ever end. Even the repetitions of familiar feelings are delicious. The voice given to Matt makes my heart yearn for passion.

Fantastic Series

I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying this series. The character development is great and the mix of magic and the Victorian era makes it more enjoyable. C J Archer has got the mix just right. The element of mystery with each book also adds to the overall enjoyment.
