Book Review: The Case of The Black Tulips by Paula Harmon and Liz Hedgecock.


If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes type of settings or Miss Marple (but wished she was alive in Victorian times and had a sleuth partner) then this book will appeal to you, I am sure of that. It is so good. Written by two authors, we meet and get to hear the voices of two different characters. Connie and Katherine meet by chance and soon, without giving anything away, black tulips seal their friendship and give them a mystery to solve. While this is going on, the pair are unable to go all ‘Cagney and Lacey’ because they are living in London in Victorian times! Written with the language of historical fiction, I felt right there with all the letter writing and petticoats. Marvellous. This, and the rest of the series a definite must read.

Page turner rating 5/5

Three word review: Great Victorian minds.

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
