  • The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder

    The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder is the first book in Rachel McMillan’s Herringford and Watts Mysteries series, and is also the first book I have ever read by her. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect going in, but I will say I never expected there to be so many funny parts! Rachel is definitely very clever, and I really enjoyed all of the funny little notes she added to the bottom of many of the pages. However, I will be honest and say that the story was just a little slow for me, and some of the interactions seemed a little forced. But other than that, I definitely enjoyed this story. Merinda Herringford has so much determination to be Toronto’s most renowned detective, and that is what makes her perfect! She knows what she wants and goes after it, no matter what society thinks. She looks after Jem; well, when she isn’t fired up about one investigation or another. And I just love the way she is totally ignorant of Jasper Forth’s true feelings for her. Though I do hate that her ignorance hurts him because I am quite fond of him. Either way though, I still love her peculiarities, as they are some of my most favorite parts about her. Jemima Watts is such a sweet, innocent character. Although I will say she certainly does have her fair share of fire and spunk! Her determination not to be the proper society lady her parents always planned her to be is so inspiring, and I love her faithfulness to Merinda. And she is so adorably awkward with Ray DeLuca! I couldn’t help but laugh over her hilarious attempts at trying to get him to notice her. The two of them really are the perfect pair, in my opinion, and I loved how this book focused a good deal on their story. All in all, I definitely enjoyed this cute little story, and I am excited to read more of Rachel’s Herringford and Watts Mysteries! I am happy to give this book four out of five bookshelves, and I would definitely recommend it, especially for wonderful, light summer reading. It was a perfectly adorable little story, and it was the perfect debut for Rachel’s writing career! I received a copy of this book from the Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for only my honest review.

    Several things about this book grabbed me right away. 1) It’s not too overwhelming in size, so a perfect little summer read. (and as I have said of these books before, I LOVE the covers). 2) I LOVE FONTS – I’m actually rather obsessed with them, so to see a fun, scrolly (cause that’s a word, right?!) font displayed at the beginning of a letter from Jem’s parents as well as Chapter #s puts a big ol smile on my face. 3) There are silhouettes & pretty designs throughout the book! Another smile, and yet another reason I prefer delicious paperbacks over eBooks! 4) The author puts footnotes throughout. Who does this in fictional stories? It’s like she’s passing us secret notes in class! Super fun! September 1910, Toronto, Canada – told in 3rd person, (unlike the eNovellas). The story opens with the murder of a beautiful young woman found at the Elgin Theater, and our lady detectives are determined to help solve the case. One of my favorite things about this story, was Ray DeLuca’s journal. Getting to know him in a very personal way, and what ends up happening because of it (avoiding spoilers here), was heartwarming. Excellent Picture of these lady detectives: Ch. 2 – “Jem realized early in her acquaintance with Merinda Heringford that attempting to solve a crime as an amateur and a woman meant leaving any semblance of pride or dignity behind. She became all too familiar with hiding her attractive feminine traits – her soft curves and curls – under the dirty, mangy tweed folds of her flatmate’s nifty disguises.” Amusing Quote: Ch. 2 - “I have to return the reporter’s coat,” said Jem. “Though I suppose if I take it off, half of Toronto will notice I have no pants on.” Faith: (faith is lightly sprinkled in this book). Ch. 2 “She breathed a prayer for the rain to hold off and to avoid detection, at which Merinda smirked, scolding her friend for conversing with an invisible God.” Ch. 15 – “Women in the Bible didn’t sit at home braiding mats for the men in battle. They went to battle too. Look at Deborah. Look at Esther.” Ch. 19 – “God is going to speak to you no matter where you decide to meet him.” Tea Moment (because tea is my “thing”): Ch. 7 – “Jem cleared her throat, inviting Gavin to sit in the armchair as she settled onto the sofa. Mrs. Malone arrived with the tea service, which featured assorted dainties arranged to ornament the tea. Jem pinched a fairy cake and licked the icing.” I purchased this book and I would recommend it to a friend. 5 stars © 04/01/2016 Harvest House Pub., 219 Pages / This author is very approachable through her FB page. Others In Series: *A Singular & Whimsical Problem – (eNovella) 12/2015 / *Of Dubious and Questionable Memory – (eNovella) 5/31/2016 / *A Lesson in Love and Murder 9/1/2016
