Read Murder, Magic, and What We Wore Online Free - The year is 1818, the city is London, and our heroine, 16-year-old Annis Whitworth, has just learned that her father is dead and all his money is missing. And so, of course, she decides to become a spy.
Annis always suspected that her father was a spy, so following in his footsteps to unmask his killer makes perfect sense. Alas, it does not make sense to England’s current spymasters—not even when Annis reveals that she has the rare magical ability to sew glamours: garments that can disguise the wearer completely.
Well, if the spies are too pigheaded to take on a young woman of quality, then Annis will take them on.
She’ll follow the clues her father left behind and discover what befell him.
She’ll prove she can sew an impenetrable disguise.
She’ll earn a living without stooping to become a—shudder—governess.
It can’t be any harder than navigating the London social season, can it?

Category: Regency set but not a romance
SQUEE!!! Georgette Heyer's Regency world +Magic is one of my favorite things to read. I absolutely loved Sorcery & Cecelia: or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot. That was my gateway to a whole new genre I never imagined loving. This book is no exception and it...

Murder, Magic, and What We Wore is a bewitching tale replete with lies, spies, and untrustworthy allies.
“Give a girl an education and introduce her properly into the world, and ten to one but she has the means of settling well, without further expense to anybody.”

Regency Era. Spy Games. Magic. Fashion. If the title and cover of Murder, Magic, and What We Wore by Kelly Jones were not enough to snare me, those word would seal the deal. As soon as I found out this book existed (which was later than I'...

Loved the first half, not so much the second. Very obvious twists, underdeveloped plot points, and weirdly cartoonish behavior from previously normal characters ( (view spoiler)[ ganging up in a ballroom to punch a man - even a horrible one? (hide spoiler)] ) I liked the main character, though, and the barely there/not there...

It's going up on my shelf of light and fun historical fiction novels that I save for whenever I need something that will make me smile. If you enjoyed The Stranje House series, this seri...

Magical and mysterious, Murder, Magic, and What We Wore was such a fun tale that kept me glued to the pages until the very last word.
The story begins with Annis Whitworth receiving some very crushing news - her father is dead, killed in his line of work that takes him here there and everywhere....

While this book didn't knock my socks off, it was a fun little regency romp. I can never pass up a title that promises historical fiction with a splash of magic. This is a title for anyone who enjoyed Love, Lies, and Spies, but, in my opinion, it didn't quite live up to the Sorcery and Celia tout...

A few things about this book right off the bat: first of all, it took me a long time to read. My attention just wasn't held the way I hoped it would have been. Especially because it felt rather like it was going to be a YA historical/almost-cozy mystery, which would have been right up my alley. S...
