* I was provided a copy for review by the author. All thoughts are my own.*

The Girl With the Golden Eyes is an enthralling mystery story set in the Victorian Era. The fact that it was inspired by some real historical figures made it all the more intriguing. There is a sweet romance as well that made me swoon! I found myself eagerly turning the pages, trying to figure out the mastermind.
