You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis
I was an avid reader as a child. Sure growing up sans internet, social media or mobile devices were contributing factors. (Okay, I may remember my grandma finally getting rid of her black and white television set so my uncle could play pong, and I may vividly recall the holiday that brought cable tv into our living room, but this isn’t a post on growing up before or being able to afford tech.) Even though other more flashy distractions exist, I still love reading a good book.
A Scandal in Scarlet is book number 10 completed in my 2019 Book Challenge. I’m officially half way. Goodreads still says I’m a book behind, but we’re going to take no notice of that. This is book number four in the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop series, and the next one doesn’t come out until 2020.
The character development has changed a bit in this book. It almost felt like this was the last book in this series. You may wonder how many murders can a small tourist town in Cape Cod reasonable have? Gemma and Jayne still own the Holmes Emporium and Mrs. Hudson’s tea room. This time the murder occurs in their establishment during a fundraising tea. There were a couple of interesting plot twists in this tome including a blazing fire and a boat chase. It certainly made for some exciting commutes.
Burt is looking for the best spot on the box to bite. Mmmmmmmmmm, cardboard.
