Stalking Jack the Ripper gets 4.5 Stars {mystery, historical fiction, ya lit, teen}

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco gets 4.5 out of 5 stars in this historical fiction/mystery ya lit, young adult, teen read.  This book is fun, a fast read, and surprises you at the end.  There is some language, and the story about murders may be gruesome for some.  Alohamoraopenabook Alohamora Open a Book Great book. fast read. Fun book. Romance.

Murder. Surprise. Suspense. Unpredictable. Historical fiction. Mystery. Romance. Girl Power. Family drama. Fast read.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco is the first book in a new series that seems perfect for this time of year.  Though, honestly it'd be a fun read anytime of year.  Definitely check this one out.   You may be grabbing for the second (Hunting Prince Dracula) book sooner than you realized.

This new teen/young adult read was so very close to a perfect rating.  Though, 4.5 out of 5 stars is pretty darn impressive, and is definitely worth a read or listen (audiobook) to. Maniscalco truly wrote a unique and fun story that keeps you guessing until the very end.  I loved the story line, and I loved that a historical fiction type story to be inspiring.  I love seeing strong female characters, and Stalking Jack the Ripper is about a girl that is smart, pushes herself to learn and grow, and not afraid to go after what she wants.

This book is fantastic.  It has some language and deals with murder, but overall it's a really fun read.  The only reason Stalking Jack the Ripper didn't get the perfect 5 stars is because of the romance.  At times the love story was cheesy and a bit over the top in my opinion, but otherwise this book is fantastic.

Definitely check this book and enjoy your reading time.

Happy Bone Chilling Fun and Fascinating Mystery/Historical Fiction Reading!
