Via Goodreads: Set in gilded age New York, These Shallow Graves follows the story of Josephine Montfort, an American aristocrat. Jo lives a life of old-money ease. Not much is expected of her other than to look good and marry well. But when her father dies due to an accidental gunshot, the gilding on Jo’s world starts to tarnish. With the help of a handsome and brash reporter, and a young medical student who moonlights in the city morgue, Jo uncovers the truth behind her father’s death and learns that if you’re going to bury the past, you’d better bury it deep.
This book just sounds absolutely fascinating!! I don't read a lot of mysteries, but I'd happily pick this one up. The different characters sound like an interesting cast and I'm excited to see how they interact with one another. Also, the cover is absolutely gorgeous (but also really haunting and kind of scary too).
