Great Early Review of The Ripper's Wife on Good Reads

This review was posted on When I wrote this novel I intended it to begin like a romance novel and then slowly turn into one of horror, so this review really stood out to me. Thank you underthesecovers for posting it.

"The story develops at a leisurely pace before getting into the nitty gritty. It is written like a romance novel turned worst nightmare. Brandy Purdy's poetic style of writing holds your hand through the horror. Her beautiful prose mixed with horrific detail makes for a change of pace in today's horror stories. It was reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe's darker style of writing, elegant with raw horror. 

I enjoyed Florie's honest candor in relating her life with Jim. Her innocent, naive, girlish nature and how Purdy developed Florie's character's full circle. It was indeed a sweet escape, a glimpse into the past on creative license. With Brandy Purdy one can expect entertaining stories on a grand scale.
