MARION, MISSING by Rachel Caine
Valentine is a P.I. visited by his partners ghost. She wants him to find her cousin, who has gone missing. Now he’s looking for a little girl and it leads to Tilda’s murderer.
Pretty good story. But I think it takes place in the 50’s or 60’s but the author doesn’t come out and tell you.

Heart’s Blood by Jeffe Kennedy
Prince Cavan is to be wed to Princess Natilde. What Cavan doesn’t know is that the Princess was replaced by the servant. She raped her with the wooden handle of a dagger. She threatens to kill her if she tells, so Nix is born. Nix becomes the goose girl until Natilde has her horse killed and her head mounted. Cavan feels a connection to Nix but doesn’t know why.
At first the story confused me but once I got into it, I couldn’t stop reading. Talking horse. Evil imposter. And a timid goose girl. A little gruesome.
