about the book...
Filled with witty dialogue and characters you just won't be able to get enough of, "The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder" is a clever mystery that you will definitely want to get your hands on! I especially loved the historical setting of this novel because I am a Canadian myself, and what could be better than reading a novel set in one of the most famous cities in your very own country? McMillan does a great job at bringing history to life, adding some real details as well as some intriguing fictional ones that make for entertaining reading. McMillan writes in a delightful style, and I like the unique bits she adds to her stories, such as when a certain sentence has an asterisk next to it, allowing you to step out of the novel for an added tidbit of information added at the bottom of the page. Jem and Merinda are hilarious characters who often had me chuckling at their antics, and yet they also have a surprising amount of heart as well. And while normally I don't overly enjoy romantic novels per se, this novel had just the right flavour of romance. In fact, there is a certain scene between Jem and Ray that had me laughing out loud! (I dare not say more as I don't want to ruin it for you).
And so it is with a sense of Canadian pride that I can highly recommend this entertaining novel, not just because of the country Rachel hails from, but because it is simply a well-written and fun read. I can't wait to see what is next in store for Jem and Merina, because whatever it is, it will be worth reading about! 4.5 out of 5 stars.
