Summary è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Brian ThompsonTh characters in this book were well developed and all had a back story that was revealed one iece at a time The interaction between them was believable and helped the story to flow I found the last 2 3 chapters slightly slow compared to the rest of the book but all the ends were the book but all the ends were up nicely Looking forward to reading about Bella and her adventures this is meant to be the first of a series isn t it Despite "The Fact That This " fact that this marketed as a new series of mysteries I get the feeling that is of a Literary in joke Lead character Bella Wallis is a widow ossible bisexual secret author but these are just labels which the author never bothers to #EXPLORE SHE HAS ZERO PERSONALITY DESPITE #She has zero ersonality Despite herself up as in an independent woman there are Bear Creek Road plenty of men falling over themselves to look after her and wanting to marry her Her appeal eludes me she is sarcastic uick to take offense and I just couldn t get interested in her As for the mystery angle well there isn t one Thougherhaps that is the Good Authority Good Authority point that this isn t supposed to be a traditional whodunnit The writing includes some head scratching similies which any decent editor should have spotted It says a lot that the books that Bella writes sound far interesting than the one we read here Rather an unsettling book It is well written the characters are unusual. Bella Wallis discovers herlots in the alley ways drawing rooms and dirty laundry of Victorian London Under the Carneycopia pen name Henry Ellis Margam she takes revenge upon the scoundrels that litter London Society by destroying them inrint So when Bella disco.
