Book Review: Whiddershins by Jordan L. Hawk

Widdershins (Whyborne & Griffin, #1)Widdershins by Jordan L. Hawk

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s like the author knows me!

What are my top 3 favorite genres?

-Mystery
-Historical Fiction
-Queer Fiction

WHIDDERSHINS tells the intriguing story of Percival Whyborne, a philologist at the Ladysmith museum, who gets dragged into a world of mystery, supernatural, and even love upon the arrival of Griffin Flaherty, a private investigator looking into the murder of one of the museum’s board members’ son. Along with his very interesting and amusing friend, Christine, a woman archeologist who doesn’t let anybody tell her how to live her life, Whyborne must help his handsome detective discover the truth before it’s too late.

Basically this book is all my favorite things wrapped into one thing. If you like mystery, this has a very intriguing one! If you like historical fiction, this one is an interesting setting! If you like queer fiction, this is a lovely romance that’s very believably done, not rushed-feeling or anything! Add the lady archeologist who is independent and badass, and it’s basically the perfect book for me. After a few real stinkers in queer romance there I’ve read this year, the standouts have all been historical romances.

I’m definitely going to go instantly buy the next book in this series right away!
