✨📖 REVIEW BY 👩🏻🦰✨
I have read Opium and Absinthe by Lydia Kang couple weeks ago and I was deeply mesmerised by this gothic novel.
This murder mystery book was set in Victorian era where family traditions and superstitions plays important part. Tillie is very likeable character despite the fact she is an addict. Opium and Absinthe explores early versions of narcotics used usually by wealthy women as various remedies and pain killers. Tillie gradually increases her doses and despite her fantasy delusions about her sister’s death she is very determined to find the truth about the killer.
The book is fast paced and the revealed killer in the end really surprised me.
