Body on Baker Street: A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery

We rated this book:


Body on Baker Street, the second of the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mysteries by Vicki Delany, is a light-hearted and delightful romp through Cape Cod and the unique characters who populate it. The series is set in New London and features a British ex-patriot by the name of Gemma Doyle who lets her powers of observation frequently lead her into trouble. In this installment, a famous author of racy Holmes pastiche novels is murdered while doing a signing in Gemma’s Sherlock Holmes Bookstore and Emporium, and one of Gemma’s best customers is a chief suspect.

This mystery continues Delany’s trend toward whimsical and feel-good mysteries with just the right amount of intrigue and possible romance to keep her audience interested. Body on Baker Street is a perfect novel to read to while away a rainy afternoon with a cup of tea or to keep you company on vacation. It is a fun and fluffy adventure with a quirky cast of characters to rival any Sherlock Holmes homage or pastiche; and any reader who loves Holmes will come away from this book with a list of additional series and authors worth checking out whom Gemma highly recommends.
