Hello everyone! *waves* I’m very excited to be part of the Stalking Jack the Ripper blog tour, hosted by the fabulous Knights of Whitechapel, the book’s street team. Ever since I discovered the book on Goodreads, I’ve been really, really excited about it. The whole idea behind it, the dark vibe and the amazing artwork just blew me away!
I’ve been interested in the Jack the Ripper case for ages. Now, some people would think that’s a wee bit strange or morbid (and yeah sure maybe), but how can you not be drawn to it? The Ripper case fascinates me because the killer has never been caught. For more than a century people have put forth theories but none have been proven and probably never will, too much time has past. But that doesn’t mean that people will stop writing about this fascinating character.
I seriously can’t wait to read this book! Until then, I’ve created a playlist inspired by what we know about the book. It’s been a very long time since I posted a bookish playlist! This one was a lot of fun to make.
Hope that you enjoy it and that it puts in the mood for this amazing book! ❤

Read an excerpt here!
Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.
Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside NYC where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.
Stalking Jack the Ripper is her debut novel. It incorporates her love of forensic science and unsolved history, and is the first in a new series of gothic thrillers.
