Waiting on Wednesday: Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves

Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves (Published by Flux, April 8, 2012)

A paranormal mystery involving London’s most notorious killer
In 1888, following her mother’s sudden death, seventeen-year-old Arabella Sharp goes to live with her grandmother in a posh London neighborhood. At her grandmother’s request, Abbie volunteers at Whitechapel Hospital, where she discovers a passion for helping the unfortunate women and children there.
But within days, female patients begin turning up brutally murdered at the hands of Jack the Ripper. Even more horrifying, Abbie starts having strange visions that lead her straight to the Ripper’s next massacres. As her apparent psychic connection with the twisted killer grows stronger, Abbie is drawn into a deadly mystery involving the murders, her mother’s shadowed past, and a secret brotherhood of immortals—who’ll stop at nothing to lure Abbie into its “humanitarian” aims.

I have really enjoyed historical fantasy lately and the plot of this one sounds very original, so I can't wait to read it.

Fantastic pick! I went to college with the author and she was a good writer back then. Can't wait to read it and the subject is fascinating.
