Murder, Magic, and What We WoreMurder, Magic, and What We Wore by Kelly Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The beginning to an awesome series! I received a copy from NetGalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest review. Murder, Magic and What We Wore is a historical mystery which is full of intrigue, espionage, spying and some very interesting types of magic in England. Annis lives with her aunt in London. It is obvious that they are part of the "ton" as they called it in the 1800's in England. They have quite an interesting life they both seem to enjoy even if she never gets to spend much time with her beloved father who she suspects just might have been a spy. Annis is a gifted designer who is well known for her advise in clothing in London.

Annis and her aunt hit on bad times and must leave London and start new lives in a small village outside of London. Annis believes she would make a good spy, especially after she realizes that her gift for choosing amazing outfits is due to her magical gift of glamour, a gift she wants to use to spy for England if she can just get the spymasters to listen to her. In the meantime, she can use her gift to keep her and her aunt afloat and just maybe she can convince those spymasters to give her chance, if she can prove herself. This was a fun, colorful story and it kept me highly entertained. The characters were well defined. The mystery was multi-faceted and a good challenge. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series.
