THE BACHELOR GIRL's GUIDE TO MURDER by Rachel McMillan, Reviewed by Kim

 Rachel McMillan is now firmly one of my auto buy authors. I have only read 3 of her books so far, but I have really enjoyed them all!

There are so many things I love about this story, starting with the cover art and the interior page designs. And there are footnotes! I loved this unique and fun detail.  Also, at the beginning of every chapter, there are little snippets from made up works! So fun! I really like the Sherlock Holmes feel the story has, and that it takes place in Toronto in 1910 - a place and time I haven’t read that much about. 

I love Ray! What a great character! One of my favorite parts of the story was when he was telling Jem how he would woo her. So good!! Their first “kiss” was pretty hilarious and their first meet - I loved it! Rachel writes the best first meets! I also really like the pairing of Merinda and Jasper and am looking forward to seeing where that goes. 

The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder is full of mystery, romance, fun, and friendship, and I am looking forward to reading the other stories in this series.

BackCover Blurb:

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.
Available in hardover, paperback and digital ebook:

  1. I know authors don't mind reviews on an older story. Who doesn't love an awesome backlist? Thanks Kim! I know you'll enjoy all of Rachel's stories!
