Heather wants to repay Morg for everything she has done for her, and invites Morg to come with her to England to spend Christmas these in a “castle,” but has alterative motive for doing it. Morg reluctantly agrees.
Heather became a P.I. in part due to real love of Sherlock Holmes, and now being in his homeland little did she know that she would soon become involved with solving a series of events, seemingly unconnected to all those involved in the story. Morg must now become a female Holmes, and using all of her Sherlockian reasoning to completely resolve which had happened, making sure to explain how all the events of the past few days had indeed been connect.
I’m a lover of Sherlock Holmes. I’ve seen all the movies with Basil Rathbone, I’ve seen with BBC television series [1954-1955] with Ronald Howard on NetFlix, as well as the entire series with Jeremy Brett, and the first two seasons with Benedict Cumberbatch playing Holmes. Given this I’d surmised what had been going on regard the key event for the same reasons Morg gives at the end of the novel. I became surprised as Morg explained everything which had occurred, which for some reason I’d missed detecting as I read the story. There are numerous twists which come to light at the end of the novel, so much so, that once things had started to be revealed I couldn’t put the damn novel down and go to sleep. [Finally went to bed at around 2:30 AM]
It’s a superb mystery tale which should be a definite read by all lovers of this genre. This is the first time I’ve read anything in this genre and by R.L. Cherry and will probably consider reading some more. To my surprise is a male who has managed to pin down Morg’s characteristics quite successfully. The only negative thing I found in reading this novel is that at times the writing became a little too passive for me, but this has not distracting me from giving this book 5 STARS

Morg Mahoney hates to exercise, but it keeps her fit in her work as a private investigator -- exercise and a Colt .38 make for a lethal contender against bad guys. It also introduces her to Heather, who becomes her best friend; that is, after she stops Heather's ex-boyfriend from trying to strangle her. Heather and she are opposites, except for being in their late 20s; with one being a tall blonde beauty and the detective slightly plump a.k.a. voluptuous with curly red hair, a poster girl for the Emerald Isle. But she saves Heather's life and that forms a bond between the radically different women.
It turns out that Heather's hotheaded boyfriend is a big client of her father's bank, so Daddy won't be thrilled if she has him arrested for assault. Heather may be filthy rich, but her life is in the pits. Morg, shortened from Morgana, quickly loses her initial envy. Like in the proverbial Chinese saying," save someone's life and you own them", a strong bond between these two women is formed.
Morg cops a favor from her attorney friend to get Jonathan off Heather's back, but strange incidents continue, some despicable, others dangerous. Legally, he stays under the wire and even Morg's cop friend, Bob, tells her what she suspects -- his money and clout will keep Jonathan clear of trouble - and Bob buys into an opposite version of the situation, taking Jonathan's word as true. It's up to Morg now to keep her newfound friend safe.
Heather browbeats Morg into spending Christmas in England in a Victorian manor house, a throwback to an older England. Follow Morg as she manages to find herself entangled in a web of family secrets, racehorses and the IRA. Not only is she in Sherlock Holme's country, she borrows some of his methods, exchanging his droll sarcasm for her own sassy wit.
R.L. Cherry writes a lively, entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable book, fast-paced and filled with suspense and humor.
