Bookbag review of Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Horror - 2nd Expanded Edition
Posted by Steve Emecz on
"Sherlock himself is captured very, very well. His genius, his impatience, and his arrogance mix together in just the right quantities for this to feel like a 'canon' story".
Those among you that are authors and publishers will know The Bookbag is the UK's leading independent book review site - and that they are thorough. There is a mix of excitement and trepidation when the email arrives to say a new book review is ready. Thankfully they give a glowing review of Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Horror 2nd Edition.
When author David Ruffle brought the book to us, he proposed adding another 100 pages to the already very popular 1st edition, and we're very glad he did. There are several additional short stories - "...the best amongst them, while little more than vignettes, are absolutely wonderful. Henrietta’s Problem and Christmas at Baker Street are two of the sweetest pieces I can remember reading on Holmes and Watson, yet fit the established characters perfectly, while I absolutely loved the last line of Christmas with Holmes – superb."
The review summary says it all - "An enjoyable novella is backed up by a series of extras, including some quite wonderful vignettes. High recommendation."
Great timing as the sequel Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Legacy comes out next month.
The full review is available on The Bookbag website.
Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Horror is available from all good bookstores worldwide including in the USA Classic Specialities, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and in most electronic formats including Amazon Kindle.
