4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing buy November 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a lot of stories!
Each writer has a different style, but all are enjoyable.
The aspects of society at that time are very clearly shown. It's quite an eye opener.
I found it entertaining to see how the "proper" ladies worked around societal conventions to do their sleuthing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twists and turns June 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good collection of crime and some surprising solutions. Couldn't help but wonder how the lady detectives were
viewed at the time as none of the three fit the Victorian ideal of the shy, self effacing, dependent wife and mother one was supposed to aspire to. No fainting away like the heroines of Mrs. Southworth's books who wrote at the same time.

I had never heard of any of these ladies before until I saw this set - Amelia Butterworth, Lady Molly or Loveday Brooke, But what an interesting find it has been! I love this little collection. And my mom has enjoyed reading it also. Definitely a kindle keeper. If you're into Sherlock Holmes, definitely give these ladies a try too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Anthology January 9, 2014
By Jonny
Format:Kindle Edition
I had not heard of any of these characters until I discovered this wonderful collection. Lady Molly of Scotland Yard is probably my favorite but all three are great ‘cozy’ mysteries with female detectives. Light but engaging Agatha Christie-type stories with just the right dose of mystery and suspense to keep you reading. This anthology includes some beautiful illustrations and interesting essays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable reading April 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories all have turn of the century settings. Lady Molly and Loveday Brooke are British, while Amelia Butterworth is American. Lady Molly, who works for Scotland Yard, has a somewhat mysterious background (revealed in the end), Loveday Brooke works for a firm of private detectives, and Amelia Butterworth is a true amateur. All three work on cases involving women or where a woman's insight is valuable.
The Butterworth stories are the weakest from the point of view of detection. In "That Affair Next Door", the villain turns out to be someone who was not a suspect at all -- in fact, only appearing in reference to another minor character a few times. Neither Amelia nor her police detective friend actually solve the crime, instead someone simply tells them the solution at the end. The Butterworth stories are interesting reading, but fall short in the solve-the-crime department.

Pleasant read and nice to see different types of approach from the various writers. The age of the stories adds a quaintness to them, reflecting the values of a different era.
