  • Entertaining, enjoyed it

    I found this to be an intriguing story. I enjoyed the close friendship and working relationship between Ruddy and Archie. They were very intelligent and trusted each other. The secondary characters like Will, Curry, and the other police added very much to the story. The chase to catch a robber/murderer who used a snake as a weapon was entertaining and kept me reading the story. There could have been a little less in the description of every person who entered the tale, but for the most part, this was a story worth reading. I received a copy of this story through CBR Services, and this is my unsolicited review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved, loved, loved this story

    Karlsen pens a magnificent Victorian era story in A Venomous Love. The twist in this story is that it's a detective story as well. I have read work from this author before, and I really enjoyed it. Even though that story was 5 stars as well, I must say this story just made me read it from cover to cover. First, it's 1890. A time where there was no crime scene investigators or modern science just the wit and knowledge of the detective. Bloodstone has his own demons, a haunting that follows him wherever he goes, but still he has a case to solve, a murder, before there are any others. It's an amazing story and you can definitely tell that the author did her research not just about the era, but the police procedures. Bloodstone is a unique character, with a lot of depth, and has many different layers, making up a determined man. Determined to find a killer. This author is not just a writer but a great storyteller. The thrills and intrigue is written clearly and the characterizations are engrossing. Love this story. This story was intriguing and kept the reader guessing. This read is more than just words on a page. A Venomous Love is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author.
