A delightful historical paranormal about an innocent yet "on the shelf" at 26 years old glass reader and a unique male hunter who needs to meet the right woman. They fall in love while solving a series of unusual murders. The secondary characters are great and I wish we had seen more of them. I'm looking forward to the last book of the trilogy.

Psychic Virginia Dean is a member of the Leybrook Institute, a competitor of the Arcane Society. The only real difference between the two is that people of the Institute are in trade (they sell their services) and the Society is made up of the hoity-toity nobility. When two of the Institutes psychics are murdered, the J&J Agency (owned by the new leader of the Arcane Society) hires Owen Sweetwater to investigate the paranormal deaths. Since Virginia is such a strong practitioner, Owen seeks her assistance in deciphering mirror-magic which is at the root of the crimes. Of course, Virginia becomes a target of the killer and Owen must save her life.

I enjoyed the romance between Owen and Virginia which is strange since there was little animosity or snark between them. The mystery was intriguing and rather difficult to unravel. I particularly liked the evil clockwork curiosities, a very clever creation.
