Since I fell head over heels for The Lost Apothecary, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read The London Seance Society.

Lenna Wickes is determined the solve the murder of her sister, even if that means mastering the art of investigative seances.

I was eager to get my hands on The London Seance Society (and ended up with two copies as a result). Regrettably, the book didn’t meet my expectations, though it’s still a decent read. It simply lacks the refinement and captivation of The Lost Apothecary.

I enjoyed the setting and the premise of using seances to solve crimes and the women challenging sexism through the London Seance Society. However, I struggled to connect with the story as a whole.

All things considered, I don’t believe I disliked The London Seance Society. I suspect I may have set my expectations too high. Such is life! I plan to continue reading Sarah Penner’s work, as I’m confident it will be worthwhile.
