Heart Collector, by Barbara Russell

I loved this steampunk set in 19th c New Zealand! There’s a mystery, and great characters, and swoony scenes (I love Murk)! Isabel is a Supernatural, hunting a serial killer who’s found a way to collect the supernatural abilities of his victims, and I love how her empathic gift comes in smells, auras, and surprising visuals. That and the setting really made this book pop for me as something fresh and original. Terrific fun, quick read.
