In Rachel McMillan’s, The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder, two best friends, single and independent, have something more important than marriage on their minds. When these two eligible ladies, Jem and Merinda, open their own detective agency to represent the poorest of Toronto, they get more than they bargained for when they take on their first major case on behalf of two murder victims. Will these unlikely sleuths solve the case or will they suffer the same fate before it’s too late?
Set in Toronto in 1910, The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder is a light-hearted and entertaining mystery. The characters are charming, the dialogue witty, and the historical nods to the Victorian Era enchanting. Apart from some inconsistencies in character voice, and the romantic angle being overplayed, Rachel McMillan’s The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder is a worthy debut. I look forward to the further adventures of Herringford and Watts.
