I found this series after I read the Gail Carriger books. I really enjoyed the Victorian setting and mystery in that series and I think I ended up googling "Victorian mystery".
While there's a lot less supernatural stuff happening in this series, there is a twinge of the other worldly. Can't divulge more without spoiling it for you. I think technically these are classified as "Mystery Romance" but they are way more mystery. The leading man is a Holmes-y type character, which I kind of like (watching both BBC Sherlock and the new Holmes Movies) and a little rough around the edges. The only quarrel I have with the series is that the heroine, Julia Gray, is sometimes incredibly slow...I feel like she should be a little more quick witted. All in all though I really enjoyed them!
