The following quote seems fitting when considering how I d review this story It was delivered by the villain to the amateur sleuth You can be so clever at times and on other occasions so terribly unimaginative This is an understatement Cleverness would imply the sleuth hunted up clues but this is not really the case she overhears a significant conversation by chance, lucks into finding another clue which isn t shared with the reader and then the killer reveals himself to her while she still has [...]
I had some issues with this one The writing, in terms of putting words together to form coherent sentences, was fine except for the fact that the victim s household boasts a hoard of servants the setting was adequate the storytelling was okay except for the fact that, as far as I can remember, heroine Drucilla showed up at her friend s door and whoever opened it to her expected her to know the friend had been murdered Although The death occurred only this morning, during the early hours Which me [...]

I found this book to be over before I really got to sink my teeth in It felt rushed and too quick to unmask the murderer Honestly it didn t need to be so short, there was enough potential here to have had at least another 100 pages or so of material The author never took the time to explore any of the other suspects and so it made it too simple I understand that its a novella but a story such as this deserved to be a full fledged novel.
Short and exciting, not surprising however, at all, if you re looking for a who done it to keep you guessing this isn t it But I liked Drusilla a lot, and it was quite enjoyable.
This was a very disappointing book It was like a novella and read as if half the book was missing There was no way to know anything about the characters and no building up of the story.
To tell the truth, the book was not that bad The beginning was intriguing and mysterious I wish we were not given a clue on who the killer was, because I found out at the third chapter when all the characters were introduced Drucilla visits the house of her childhood friend only to find out that she was dead She accidentally overhears a suspicious conversation between her childhood friend s husband and his father, and she believes that her friend has been killed I wished she did investigating, [...]
I have always loved reading gothic mysteries, especially ones based in English countrysides this novel gave me what I enjoy for the most part My one complaint is that it went too quickly and I feel there should have been of a mystery drawn out, especially when a ghost was suspected of being the murderer Drucilla s friend, Celeste, goes into a whirlwind romance, marriage and death the family claims accidental, but Drucilla is not so sure, especially after overhearing a conversation between Absal [...]
This is a novelette and the first in the Accomplished Mysteries series At 55 pages this is a short but interesting little murder mystery Drucilla Winterbourne travels to Cornwall to visit her recently married friend at Blackridge House When she arrives she is told that her friend has just died She spends the next few days unraveling the mystery of her death Because of the length there s not much room for character development, but nevertheless, I liked Drucilla She s got spunk and an inquisitive [...]
Short and Sweetwell maybe not sweet but good.

After receiving disquieting letters from her newly married friend Celeste, Drucilla Winterbourne decides to visit her in Cornwall at Blackridge House On arriving she is told some devastating news.I felt that the mystery could have been expanded, including the section with Celeste, as there wasn t really any sleuthing on the part of Drucilla.
I have mixed feelings about this little historical mystery novella I didn t dislike it, but it didn t grab me either, so I m sticking to a firm It was OK I don t want my time back, but I don t know if I would read in this series What I liked I thought Drucilla had potential, even though due to the length of the book we don t really get to know too much about her I liked her enough that I wanted to know .I loved the idea of it Victorian heroines solving mysteries Very fun It was technically well [...]

Bah I m supremely pleased I didn t actually pay for this bit of fluff as well as the fact it only took a very small amount of my time This started out very promising and the writing itself is rather good A young wife newly wed, a hint of darkness in the marriage, and a friend off to the rescue One of my favorite genres is gothic romance and add in that it was a short story, I was quite happy to settle down in the sun with a few stolen moments in an extremely busy day One does not expect a lot wi [...]

Two stars because I finished it The premise is good, the execution is not We go from mystery to solved and just kind of skip the whole process of solving Our Heroine stumbles across one clue, stumbles across another, then without seeing any reasoning OR EVEN WHAT THE SECOND CLUE REALLY WAS, it s accusations over the dinner table time And she gets confirmation basically through ZE EVIL VOICE which comes from a brilliant sketch from That Mitchell Webb Look Basically she has no reason to think what [...]

An incomplete workThis had an interesting setting with good characters but the mystery set up and execution were terrible After the big secret is learned, there s no investigation or gathering of clues The scene just shifts to the main girl accusing the widower of bigamy and of killing her friend The author doesn t show a thought process or anything it s just Oh, that lady is your real wife, a servant I spoke to said she came home with you The reader is never shown that conversation or what made [...]

I love Gothic mysteries involving spooky mansions, suspense, deadly family secrets and intriguing characters This one had most of those elements, except perhaps for the suspense part The mystery was somewhat predictable, as was the villain And, because this was such a short novel, everything felt a little rushed, especially the ending Character development also suffered a bit from the brief length of the story.For the most part, the writing was good but there was a glaring issue that was missed [...]
This is a quick read that had me curious to the end The setting was perfect The characters were unique It just went too fast I was at the end of the story before I was ready for it But I did enjoy it I read it in one sitting If you like gothic mysteries, give this one a try You might find you want which the author does have for us.It s the story of a woman who gets a strange feeling from the letter of a dear friend Venturing out on a journey to see her friend, she only arrives to find that she [...]
2.75 Yes it is, actually Knowing everyone s little secrets is a means of gaining leverage over them and I never pass up an opportunity for that While I was slightly disappointed with how quickly this novella moved from solving to solved I still was able to enjoy it and really liked Drucilla s character I think I would have even been able to like Celeste s character had we gotten to know her I did figure out who the killer was fairly early on in the book which was rather disappointing I kind of [...]
