Book Review: A Tale of Two Murders

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5) A Tale of Two Murders – Heather Redmond

Sometimes you just want to curl up with an interesting mystery and enter into another time and place with some loveable and familiar characters…that is precisely what this novel provided for me! 

The main character is Charles Dickens (the 19th century writer) when he was a young man trying to make his way in the world and working for a London newspaper as a writer. When his boss invites him over to dinner one night everything for Dickens changes…he is immediately intrigued by his boss’s daughter and while he is visiting a young woman who lives next door becomes gravely ill and ultimately dies the next morning. Her unexpected death is the basis for Dickens beginning an informal ‘investigation’ into her death and in the process of his inquiries discovering a series of inexplicable (but clearly connected) events. 

As the mystery unfolds, Dickens joins forces with a number of his friends/colleagues and his new love interest to uncover and ultimately discover the truth behind the unexpected and tragic deaths of two young women in a 19th century London neighborhood. Heather Redmond will continue the story of Dickens, his love interest, and his investigations of London crime in the following three books of the series. I’m looking forward to picking up the next one, ‘Grave Expectations,’ soon!

Read on my friends!
