The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan ~ Review

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder (Herringford and Watts, #1)Lucie's Review:

It's Toronto, 1910, and while other Bachelor Girls are looking for husbands, Jem and Merinda are solving crimes.

When Irish women are found murdered, Jem and Merinda are on the case, with the help of a demoted Police Officer and a Newspaper Reporter, they are determined to beat the odds and bring the killers to justice.

Fascinated by the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, best friends, Jem and Merinda set out to defy the expectations and do more than look for husbands and attend parties.

Written in a style reminiscent of mystery classics, Jem and Merinda navigate the obstacles of Toronto 1910 in their search for justice. Finding unlikely allies along the way. I really like Ray, who is a man from a hardworking background he sees himself as not good enough for the clever Jem, and he is a supportive friend and ally throughout.

Overall, a wonderful read for mystery lovers, fun and fresh with lots of disguises and moments of humor. I think this is a great start for a series, and I like that this book ended with lots of room for continuing character development. A fun read, with a dynamite ending, a great book to give a shot if you are looking for something with a different flavor of historical fiction.

About the book: 

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder (Harvest House, April 2016)

In 1910 Toronto, while other bachelor girls perfect their domestic skills and find husbands, two friends perfect their sleuthing skills and find a murderer.

Inspired by their fascination with all things Sherlock Holmes, best friends and flatmates Merinda and Jem launch a consulting detective business. The deaths of young Irish women lead Merinda and Jem deeper into the mire of the city's underbelly, where the high hopes of those dreaming to make a new life in Canada are met with prejudice and squalor.

While searching for answers, donning disguises, and sneaking around where no proper ladies would ever go, they pair with Jasper Forth, a police constable, and Ray DeLuca, a reporter in whom Jem takes a more than professional interest. Merinda could well be Toronto's premiere consulting detective, and Jem may just find a way to put her bachelor girlhood behind her forever---if they can stay alive long enough to do so.
