About the book:
The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder (Harvest House, April 2016)
In 1910 Toronto, while other bachelor girls perfect their domestic skills and find husbands, two friends perfect their sleuthing skills and find a murderer.
Inspired by their fascination with all things Sherlock Holmes, best friends and flatmates Merinda and Jem launch a consulting detective business. The deaths of young Irish women lead Merinda and Jem deeper into the mire of the city's underbelly, where the high hopes of those dreaming to make a new life in Canada are met with prejudice and squalor.
While searching for answers, donning disguises, and sneaking around where no proper ladies would ever go, they pair with Jasper Forth, a police constable, and Ray DeLuca, a reporter in whom Jem takes a more than professional interest. Merinda could well be Toronto's premiere consulting detective, and Jem may just find a way to put her bachelor girlhood behind her forever---if they can stay alive long enough to do so.

About the author:
I was so intrigued by the title of this book and then also by the actual book itself when it arrived, it has such a different look to it that really drew me in. The passages included at the start of each chapter from Dorothea Fairfax's Handbook to Bachelor Girlhood adds so much to the book as it helps set the scene and the time period. Jen and Merinda are such fun characters to spend time with as they are struggling to live their lives in a way that is deemed not socially appropriate and what is acceptable for a lady. I read the prequel novella "A Singular and Whimsical Problem" before this book and I loved the introduction to these women and their determination to uncover the problems that are brought to them and to also earn the respect of others. I loved the style of these books as well as the characters and the unusual aspect of a time period that is so different from today. This is such a fun read for those who enjoy historical books and characters who will make you laugh, cringe and want to spend more time with them.
