Goodreads Rating: 5/5


Christmas, 1910. Merinda Herringford and Jem Watts would be enjoying the season a lot more if they weren’t forced to do their own laundry and cooking. Just as they are adapting to their trusty housekeeper’s ill-timed vacation, they are confronted by the strangest mystery they’ve encountered since they started their private investigation firm.

My thoughts:

I loved The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder and was super excited when I found this novella. And I was not disappointed. McMillan is a brilliant writer and makes even this short novella a super exciting and interesting read.

Merinda and Jem are both so enjoyable and I adore them both. I loved the Sherlock Holmes vibes these books have, and the fact that although the girls are the female versions of Holmes and Watson, they are still their own persons. They aren’t the same character with just a gender change, no, instead they share characteristics with the lads that gives and extra spice to their own original characteristics.

The plot was fun and engaging and fit perfectly within the 54 pages. The writing is smart and witty and I look forward to more adventures with Herringford and Watts.

Do I recommend it? 

Yes, I do.
