    Vicki Delany’s A Scandal in Scarlet

    Gemma Doyle is walking her dog, Violet when she smells smoke. The West London Museum is on fire. To help with the restoration of the Museum, the Baker Street shop owners come together to hold an auction to raise money. Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room is the site where the auction will be held. It is run by Gemma’s best friend Jayne Wilson and next door to the bookstore that Gemma runs called the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop. Gemma’s Great Uncle Arthur has donated a signed first edition of The Valley of Fear for the auction. The attendees of the auction will mostly be dressed in scarlet red. The auction is ready to begin but the museum board chair, Kathy Lamb has not started it. Where is she? Gemma goes into the shop’s back room. She discovers Kathy’s body dead. A decorative knotted tea cup rope is wrapped around her neck. A complex who done it begins to be investigated. The story is filled cover to cover with mystery, action, humor, many twists and turns plus an interesting array of suspicious, colorful and intriguing well created suspects. First rate plot which is well written leading to a surprise conclusion. This is book # 4 in the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand alone. It is the first I read in the series and look forward to reading the previous stories. I volunteered to read Scandal in Scarlet. Thanks to the Cozy Mystery Review Crew for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

    Mostly enjoyable.

    Sherlock Holmes Bookstore #4. Set on Cape Cod. This is the 2nd in this series I've read and although the author is one of my favorites, I just can't seem to "connect" with the heroine, Gemma. She's supposed to be British but her speech does not sound British. She's not really especially likeable either - not that that's a requirement, - but there's just something a little "off" to me about her. I was stumped on whodunnit until almost the end. There was a nice added surprise at end. I loved the setting. Copyright Nov 2018.

    Summer in West London is Pure Murder

    Gemma Doyle and her BFF Jayne are more than business partner, they are partners in crime. Literally. Well, at least when it comes to solving crime. Gemma runs the Sherlock Holmes Bookstore, Jayne runs the tea room next door. When they agree to host a fund raiser for the local museum, the head of the board who is emceeing the event is found murdered in the kitchen. Gemma find herself asking questions and getting involved while Jayne comes along to help keep Gemma out of trouble. This is the first book in the series I have read and there was no gap. It was a good read. I wasn’t aware that Vicki Delaney is also Eva Gates who writes the Lighthouse Library Mysteries. Guess that’s why I enjoyed this book…I like her writing style. A great book to ad to your reading list!

    Well written story, interesting case

    "A Scandal in Scarlet" is the fourth book in a series about Gemma Doyle who owns a Sherlock Holmes bookstore and has deduction abilities that rival those of the famous detective. Even though she was at the scene when a body was discovered, Gemma for once does not want to investigate, but because of the circumstances, she is in the middle of it once more. There are many people who had the means and motive to kill the victim and it was interesting to speculate who could have done it, especially after the situation got more complicated in later chapters. The investigation progressed at a realistic pace, the suspense was well done and the resolution made sense. What I really liked about this book is that Gemma was reluctant to get involved; it was a nice change and it allowed the author to explore a different way of making sure her protagonist still had to investigate. I also enjoyed that she was a bit out of it every now and then. She makes small mistakes, other characters are able to get information that was not available to her and there are moments when she has to resort to tricks to make some progress. Of course, Gemma is still herself which means that she observes stuff that others cannot see, can be a bit rude, is confrontational and has trouble to pick up on social clues, but I feel like she mellowed out even more since the last book and one can see that she is trying her best. It was great that her relationship with Ryan was very important - and that it influenced how she acted while working on the case. Since he works for the police, her behaviour (which sometimes skirts close to breaking the rules) can reflect on him and it was realistic that they had problems because of that. There were real consequences when she messed up, which I thought was great. I also like how Estrada was written - her always trying to accuse Gemma of the crime got a bit old, so it was nice to see that there was some improvement. All in all, "A Scandal in Scarlet" is a good read. The mystery is interesting, the story is well written and it was nice to see the characters again (and to observe how they changed since the last book).
