A Curious Incident: A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery
This is an enjoyable and clever cozy mystery! Gemma Doyle owns the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop and Emporium, and though she says that she is not a consulting detective, it seems that mysteries have a way of finding her. It began with the mystery of a lost cat, and ended with a murder. Try as she might, she could not stop her involvement in this one, much to the dismay of the detectives on the case. Although one particular detective will forgive her involvement since they are romantically involved…
All in all, this was a very enjoyable book. It is a great summer or beach read, since it takes place during the summer on Cape Cod. It is well written with a well-thought-out plot line that has many moving parts that work seamlessly together. Even though this is the sixth book in the series, I did not feel lost. It was a good stand-alone novel. There are many Sherlockian references, but don’t worry, you do not need to be a fan of Sherlock Holmes to enjoy this one. I love a strong female lead character, and any story that features pets, so this book did not disappoint. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good cozy.
