India Black by Carol K. Carr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoy historic fiction with a strong female lead. I am a history buff and if the story is well written I know it's a book I will read. India Black is the kind of character I like reading about. I want to know more about her story. This book was a great introduction to the series.
India Black (the narrator) is a owner/madam of a rather posh whore house in Victorian London. She is smart and strong and rather brave. India gets drug into a government conspiracy between the Brits and the Russians. There is a lot of action in this book. The only reason this is a 4 star book instead of a 5 star is because at times India has a somewhat modern voice. It's like she slips out of her time and uses a word or two that just don't fit. But I am excited about this series and look forward to reading the next one.
