In the first paragraph I was hooked.
I was in love by the end of second chapter.
I held my breath through the rest of the book worried that it was going to get worse and disappoint.
I loved it.
Now I’m crossing my fingers that the rest of the series ( there are many more) live up to the first one.
Would I recommend it? Yes, yes yes!
What genre is it?
Genre shmanre don’t you trust me? If you must know it’s a mystery, older Sherlock Holmes takes on young female assistant. Way better than it sounds, since I didn’t particularly like any of the original Sherlock Holmes I’ve read. I started reading it out loud to John today, two chapters in he’s laughed out loud a half dozen times and is enjoying it.

I loved this book too! It didn’t have as many references to bees as I had hoped, but it still was a great read. The vocabulary slowed me down somewhat, but it was good to savor the story anyway. Now I’m on to the second book in the series, “A Monstrous Regiment of Women.”
I’m glad you liked it. I’ve now read “A Monstrous Regiment of Women”, “A letter of Mary” and “The Moor” I’ve enjoyed them all but I think the first one is still my favorite.
