Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder (Review)
This review is for the book "The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder" by Rachel McMillan. This is a book unlike any other book I have read. It is part of the Herringford and Watts Mysteries series by McMillan. This book is set in the early 1900's in Toronto, Canada. Merinda Herringford and Jem Watts are best friends who are single and unattached, and therefore somewhat looked down upon by society. They are also in love with solving mysteries which makes them even more of an outcast socially. They do things which ladies are certainly not supposed to do, such as wear disguises, frequent clubs, and snoop around at murder scenes. As young Irish women begin to be murdered, Merinda and Jem go on a quest to find out who the murderer is, risking their own lives at the same time. Fortunately they are helped by a constable, Jasper, and a reporter, Ray.
I loved the writing style of this book. The characters were fun and quirky, and there were these witty footnotes throughout the whole book that made it even more unique. I really enjoyed this story - it wasn't bloody or gory, but still suspenseful and interesting. I can't wait to read more adventures of these ladies!
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
