Title: The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker

Author: Leanna Renee Hieber

Genre: Paranormal

ASIN: B005SF3L76

Available at: AmazonBarnes and Noble

From Amazon:

What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy? Hidden in the dark heart of Victorian London, the Romanesque school was dreadfully imposing, a veritable fortress, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met its powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadows, of the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She saw simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow white hair, pearlescent skin, and uncanny gift. This arched stone doorway was a portal to a new life, to an education far from what could be had at a convent—and it was an invitation to an intimate yet dangerous dance at the threshold of life and death…

I heard about this book through Goodreads recomendations. It sounds fanciful and lighthearted which is something that appeals to me. I’ve always been fascinated by anything with Jack the Ripper and anything paranormal is right up my alley! Hopefully I’ll be able to read this soon.

I actually just picked this up at a used bookstore. I was interested in reading for the same reasons you listed – fanciful and lighthearted. Looking forward to reading it!
