The Case of the Missing Moonstone by Jordan Stratford
If Ada Byron Lovelace and Mary Shelley met as girls and formed a detective agency, they would have formed the Wollstonecraft Detective Agency. Jordan Stratford introduces the reader to these two women from history and changes their stories to write this first book in a series. In the first book, Ada and Mary must risk their lives while solving a case of the missing jewel.
At the end of the book, the author notes what was true about the connections between the first female computer programmer and the first science fiction novelist. I appreciated the background information and it made me wanted to learn more about these women and their famous families.
