Book Review: The Case of The Black Tulips by Paula Harmon and Liz Hedgecock.


If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes type of settings or Miss Marple (but wished she was alive in Victorian times and had a sleuth partner) then this book will appeal to you, I am sure of that. It is so good. Written by two authors, we meet and get to hear the voices of two different characters. Connie and Katherine meet by chance and soon, without giving anything away, black tulips seal their friendship and give them a mystery to solve. While this is going on, the pair are unable to go all ‘Cagney and Lacey’ because they are living in London in Victorian times! Written with the language of historical fiction, I felt right there with all the letter writing and petticoats. Marvellous. This, and the rest of the series a definite must read.

Page turner rating 5/5

Three word review: Great Victorian minds.
