  • British mytery

    This was a good mystery, but not as entertaining as so many of her others.i enjoy her mystery/romances due to their comedy portions. The characters in this were not as likable as others.

  • A Blunt Instrument!

    Who would kill Ernest Fletcher? He was known as the perfect gentlemen, but Inspector Hannasyde finds that a lot of people may have wanted him dead. Can he find the murderer before he finds another body? I really wanted to like this book. It started out great, but went downhill from there. It was tedious and boring, and I found that I didn’t care about the ending. The two stars were based on the beginning. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Poorly formatted, otherwise four stars

    The last of the four Superintendent Hannasyde mysteries is a good story but this copy is very poorly formatted. Taken side by side with the trade paperback, you can literally see page breaks in the ebook corresponding to page changes in the text from the paper format. Spaces appear in words where they shouldn't and hypens fail to appear when they should. Overall, a good story but not as strong as the previous three. A fact not helped by formatting issues but they do get easier to ignore the longer you read-perhaps because you eventually come to expect them. I expected better from Sourcebooks. I hate having to give a good book a low review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Biblical Justice?

    Stroll back in time for another Upstairs/Downstairs look at life and death in early 20th century England. Georgette Heyer captures speech patterns elegantly, bringing characters vibrantly to life as they quibble and chatter amongst themselves, interacting among the various classes with the expected casual indifference. Her inate and active sense of humor brings subtle joy in action and plot which causes me to laugh out loud. The whodunnit has a really strong twist which, in hindsight, seems logical and obvious, but is carefully masked by--even while made (ultimately) apparent--the dialog.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A good fun mystery!

    historical-fiction, cosy-mystery, sly-humor, snarky, law-enforcement, verbal-humor, situational-humor, British-detective Didn't know that she wrote early twentieth century police mysteries, and while the mystery was fairly good, the characters are so over the top, and the humor so delightful that I giggled and snuffled and guffawed through the whole book! I love a period mystery, and this one is great fun! I requested and received a free ebook copy from SOURCEBOOKS Landmark via NetGalley!
