Hello my fellow little munchkins. How are you all doing? I am doing okay! I am currently writing a essay for my college class so wish me luck on finishing quickly. I haven’t done much this weekend. Have you? What is the weather like where you are at? It hailed yesterday but today it is all sunshine so I am now sad. I love gray, cold, rainy skies and I am sad that they are all gone.
Anyways why don’t we get ahead to this blog post.
- This is the third book in the Lady Evelyn Mystery and even though it can be read as a standalone I suggest that you read the rest of the series to get all of the hidden details that you missed and would understand the book series 0.00000001% more.
- I loved reading the character development in this story along with the plot development.
- What I mean by this is I loved reading how the story progressed as a whole especially since it is a mystery and I don’t have that many good experiences with this genre.
- The setting of this book was greatly enjoyable as it wasn’t stared in America which it seems like most of the books now a day are and is rather stared in England during the 1920s.
- The writing of this story was a great joy to read yet when it came to certain lines of dialogue it felt like it went flat which was a disappointment.
- The mystery as a whole was enjoyable but felt a little to far-fetched at moments.
- There was certain times when the things that were happening and the secrets were being told felt a little to non-reallife which was something that I was disappointed at.
- In conclusion, this book was enjoyable and quick read but it wasn’t a re-read type of book.
I give this book 3/5 stars.
