"Just when I thought Sarah Penner could not surpass her epic debut, The Lost Apothecary, she returns with an utter stunner. Readers will savor this suspenseful tale of the occult as they are drawn into a world unlike any other. At the top of her game, Penner shines, and the result is breathtaking!" --Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris

"Penner has conjured up another winner. Bristling with tension and featuring strong women who aren't afraid to defy conventions, this gothic mystery is both smart and seductive. Haunting in the best of ways, I swear I could feel the London fog on my cheek (or was that a spirit...) as I flew through the pages." --Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Magnolia Palace

Brilliant...The London Séance Society is an explosive, immersive, time-bomb of a novel. Vengeance is never sweeter than in Sarah Penner's hands." --Laurie Lico Albanese, award-winning author of Hester and Stolen Beauty

"Sarah Penner brings history to vivid life in this atmospheric and evocative whodunnit steeped in suspense, mystery, and illusion." --Nita Prose, #1 New York Times bestseller of The Maid

"The London Séance Society is an evocative and delicious read with a mystery that will have you turning pages late into the night. Sarah Penner has another bestseller on her hands with this exquisitely written gothic Victorian tale." --Madeline Martin, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Bookshop in London

"At turns spooky and sexy, sly and subversive, The London Séance Society fully immerses the reader in nineteenth-century Paris and London, a time when loved ones would suspend all manner of disbelief in the hope of communicating with the dead. With her skill at conjuring atmosphere and conveying both deceit and desire, Penner has crafted another blockbuster novel that is magically even better than her first." --Natalie Jenner, internationally bestselling author of The Jane Austen Society

"Mesmerizing, seductive and absolutely irresistible...The London Séance Society is completely spellbinding." --Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author of The House Guest

"Penner spreads her wings in her sophomore novel, The London Séance Society, a Victorian whodunit crackling with tension and lavished with ambiance. A story of a sister's grief--and a quest for answers--readers can't help but root for Lenna Wickes as she delves into the dark and sexy world of the occult. Add a dash of the supernatural and we have a winner!" --Heather Webb, USA Today bestselling author of The Next Ship Home

"A great choice for fans of historical European settings, the power of women, and the fringes of the paranormal." --Booklist
