The Bachelor girl's guide to murder by Rachel McMillian

Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder


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.
My opinion: I was utterly delighted to read this book as I always love a good mystery and Sherlock Holmes type theme made it all the more intriguing and it certainly did not disappoint! I loved both of the main women, of course Jem is a little more likable than Merinda but Merinda has a very amusing personality for a book, not sure I would like her in real life! Some aspects of the books were not as well executed as I would have liked but I truly feel that this author has so much promise and I eagerly look forward to the next book in the series. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
