    A Modern Classic!

    I haven't enjoyed historical fiction this much in years. While I was once a voracious reader and watcher of all things period and historical romance, I've since abandoned it for fantasy and it's many sub-genres. This year I decided to pick up historical titles again, which led me to Historical Fiction Book Tours and Jane Steen's Lady Helena Investigates. From the beginning, Steen paints the era and imagery of the English countryside in beautiful shades, yet with air of mystery. I found it easy to step into Lady Helena's heeled boots as she suffers through the death of her husband, due to a tragic accident. Her large family attempts to micro-manage her life, as a woman naturally must need help managing such a richly-endowed title. Only now, with the freedom of widowhood, Helena chooses to assert her independent wealth. As she steps into her husband's shoes and begins an active role in her estate, unexplained questions arise surrounding her husband's death. An enlightened and mysterious French doctor aids her investigation, which soon leads them to places she never expected. Jane Steen is a master storyteller, weaving the heartaches of grief with familial affairs and new relationships in a way which truly transcends time. Lady Helena Investigates challenges conventional period tropes while transporting the reader to a time as complex as ours, yet rife with the nostalgia modern audiences crave. Beautiful language and sensual prose, Jane Steen has gifted us with a modern classic.

    A great Victorian story!

    I love everything written about Victorian history, and this novel was very readable and well written. Interesting characters and wonderful descriptions of places, people and even Victorian smells. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.

    Lady Helena Fan

    I am new to reading Victorian Era novels. The protagonist Lady Helena learns that she is in fact a strong woman ahead of her time. The contrast between the lot of a widow in those days and current day life are fascinating. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in the series.

    An engrossing read

    The time and place felt real and the characters were interesting. The family's backstoy felt true, not the stylized or exaggerated dilemmas so mny writers resort to. Seeing the changes in familial relationships and the story driven genuine growth in the main character created most of this book's appeal for me. I read it avidly, with real pleasure.

    A story that rocks!

    What a lovely story! One that held my attention from the moment I started to read the first page. I do not mind settings in stories because I am always fascinated by new backgrounds that is vividly painted with words by the author and Jane Steen did an excellent job to describe the world of Lady Helena. I felt the sadness of Helena with the loss of her husband and I loved the quirky French Doctor while also enjoying the way the back story was crafted into the story - there was no boring, long, endless pages of information to get me in-the-know. The investigation was the most interesting one that I have read in a long time. Superb, Jane Steen!
