    Where to begin Edwardian murder mystery had great potential, but this book was a huge flop I can t recall the last time I read something this disjointed, and the way the plot was hurried along with zero details felt amateurish and as if the author wasn t even in...

    Again, enjoyable, although Rose s behavior is getting a little irritating Some fun stuff, not a crazy complex mystery but good light fun Very sparse writing style.
