Interesting intro to the series

As a fan of the Molly Murphy series I enjoyed this short story about Molly's life in Ireland. For those of you who give the story a poor rating because of length--it IS a short story, not a book. If you want more, and if you enjoyed the story, then definitely check out ...

If you want more, and if you enjoyed the story, then definitely check out the books in the series. Rhys Bowen is a wonderful author and I enjoy all of her books.

Well,

For a freebie this book was way to short... a mere 15 pages. It has a great story plot, but it goes wayyyyyy to fast. However it did get me interested in the other real books by this author, but this edition is not worth your time... 3 minutes and its over. Don't blink...

    The Amersham Rubies, for a short story, was very interesting. Good, and worthwhile reading. I only wish it was a little longer and with more intrigue.

    I was traveling and in the mood for something short and sweet, and that's exactly what I got with this gem! I previously read Murphy's Law, which is Book 1 of the Molly Murphy series, about a year ago, and have been meaning to continue on with the series for awhile now, but just haven't made time for it! This short story was just enough to rewet my tongue and remind me why I enjoyed this series so much the first time around. 




    I think that Rhys Bowen has a special talent to her writing. I am not typically a Historical Fiction reader, but I found a great deal of interest and entertainment in both this novella, and book 1 of the series! 




    There's not a whole lot one can say about a story that is only 38 pages long, but for as short as it was, I thought that it was written nicely with strong characters. The writing was solid and suspenseful enough for what you had to work with! I found enjoyment out of the story and wasn't bothered by its shortness! I thought that length fit the story at hand!




    Overall, I have found that I enjoy Rhys Bowen's writing. I look forward to reading more by her and continuing on in the Molly Murphy series and even dabbling in the Her Royal Spyness Series, even though cozy's are just something that hasn't peaked my interest yet! Ya never know, Rhys Bowen could change that all for me!
