It’s been a while since I’ve read a Mrs. Murphy book, but I have to say, I was a little disappointed in this one.
The thing that I was most disappointed about was the writing. The characters are a bit older, say in the forties, and yet the way they talk, you would think they were teenagers. I think that’s what bugged me the most while reading this book. It didn’t seem realistic for the characters that I remember from the earlier Mrs. Murphy books.
I liked that she would flash back to the murder in 1784 that effected the present day murder, but I just wish that the dialogue hadn’t seemed so juvenile.
I can’t review this too much, since this was DNF for me, but I feel like I have to go back and read the earlier books to see if I’m not remembering the characters right.
I was provided a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
