Summary

It's a crisp early October weekend, and business is slowing down as fall descends at the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop and Emporium and adjacent Mrs. Hudson's Tea Room. Wealthy philanthropist and prominent Sherlockian David Masterson has rented Suffolk Gardens House, where he plans to entertain his friends in a traditional English country-house weekend. As the chosen caterers, Jayne Watson and Gemma Doyle get to work preparing lavish meals and setting up Sherlockian books and props for entertainment. 

Meanwhile, police detective Ryan Ashburton has taken time away from his duties to assist in the kitchen. It quickly becomes apparent that David's guests don't like each other — or their host. Plus, some of them aren't even acquainted with the adventures of the Great Detective. Before Gemma can ponder their relationships, a poisoned dart sails through the window of the library, presenting Gemma Doyle with a three-book problem….

Good book

I liked the book and the narration was good except for the parts of Ryan and Estrada. Their voices were grating and unfriendly. Maybe appropriate for Estrada but not Ryan the fiancé.

Gemma Does It Again!

This reminds me of when Gemma was in England at a Sherlock Holmes convention there! Blackmailing people, scheming, and murder to get a family fortune for revenge on a host! However, Gemma still solves the mystery and finds out who the blackmailers are!

naration still awful, Gemma more know it all

the narrator has no idea of voices. Gemma is no longer in her 50’s as in the previous books but narration slips her into southern, almost a drawl at times. Louise, a native New Yorker, has an accent so nasal it is annoying. nothing like a true New York accent. don’t even know where to begin with poor Donald. his “wheezieness” is just ridiculous.

the story is okay, and a fair mystery. set in a mansion seems like fun. i like the series but Gemma continues to get more and more “know it all”. it does not make for a good main character. she is NOT Sherlock Holmes. wannabes don’t make nice people. with her attitude i don’t see how all of a sudden Louise Estrada has become a fan. even if Gemma does have some ideas she still is not a member of the police.

sorry but this series is becoming hard work to read.
