About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

The Sleuth of Blackfriars Lane (Blackfriars Lane #3) by Michelle Griep

The Sleuth of Blackfriars Lane (Blackfriars Lane #3)

Wife. Mother. Homemaker. Detective. Kit Forge wears many hats, and if that’s not enough, she’s partnered with her father to open a new detective agency. It’s hard to be all things to all people, but Kit never shies away from the impossible. Despite her hard work and good intentions, some things fall through the cracks.  

 Namely, her husband.   

But Jackson barely notices. He’s too busy putting out his own fires. As the new chief inspector of a busy London station, he must salvage the disaster left behind by the former police chief—an obstacle made all the harder when the superintendent breathes an ultimatum down his neck.   

Against her father’s advice, Kit takes on a case involving a missing child, one in which she and Jackson become a little too emotionally involved. . .and end up endangering their own little girl in the process.   

Can Kit and Jackson learn that just because they can say yes doesn’t mean they should?  


We were introduced to Kit Turner and Jackson Forge in The Thief of Blackfriars Lane, and we've watched their relationship evolve from a thief being pursued by a rookie constable, to a respectable wife married to the chief inspector. Kit and Jackson have an adorable baby and they're determined to make London a haven for their family, but it doesn't look like it's going to be easy!

Author Michelle Griep shares another story set in London during the late 1880s and we're gifted with more of her amazing imagination. There's an intriguing mystery, the ever-evolving relationship between Kit and Jackson, and a work partnership involving Kit and her father. Kit and Jackson's love continues to deepen, and her life should be filled with joy, but Kit is plagued by a concern that's familiar to many women. Should she continue to hunt criminals or choose to be a full-time wife and mother?

If you enjoy exciting romantic suspense that's laced with humor and faith, grab a copy of The Sleuth of Blackfriars Lane. Some think that this is the end but I'm hoping for more Victorian mysteries with this super-couple. I highly recommend this satisfying addition to the Kit and Jackson saga!

I received a complimentary copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
