Phoenix Rising (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #1) - Philippa Ballantine,  Tee Morris
The beginning of the book flat out deserves five stars. It's rollicking fun with heaps of pop culture references to Victorian era stories. I immediately wanted to learn more about the hero and heroine.

The last part of the book is good. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the read, the twists and turns and pace. It was just that the beginning was superb.
