Review and Giveaway for, Three Sisters and Showstoppers by Helen Smith


Tour Schedule



Three Sisters and Showstoppers by Helen Smith












 Book Descriptions:
Three Sisters and Showstoppers are two novella-length stories in the Emily Castles mystery series. The first full-length novel, Invitation to Die, will be published by Thomas & Mercer in October 2013.

The Emily Castles mystery series is set in present-day London. It features twenty-six-year-old Londoner Emily Castles and her neighbor, eccentric philosophy professor Dr. Muriel Crowther. In Three Sisters, Emily goes to a party in a big house at the end of her street. She's sure she witnesses a murder, but no one will believe her. She teams up with Dr. Muriel to investigate.

In Showstoppers, Emily helps out at a local stage school run by her neighbor, Victoria. Soon she's mixed up in a blackmail plot and two deaths. Emily and Dr. Muriel team up to prevent further a massacre live on stage during the end of term show.

My Review:

I enjoyed reading The Emily Castle Mysteries with the cast of fun and quirky characters. The dry sense of humor in these books had me giggling a lot. I also liked the way that the mysteries unfolded, even though they sometimes confused you, and led you astray; but isn't that what a good mystery is supposed to do? If you are looking for a mystery that doesn't take itself too seriously, and makes you laugh amidst a crisis, the Emily Castles Mysteries were written just for you!
