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 or it will be done!

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 the books in the series. Rhys Bowen is a wonderful author and I enjoy all of her books.

Very short story. The solving of the mystery was over even before it began!

Short story into to the Molly Murphy series by Rhys Bowen; fun read. I have read a few other books in this series and thought they made for light, fun reading.

This is REALLY short. Just when it gets going, it's over. Then it has a preview for another book.

This was an interesting short story, which moved well yet ended abruptly. I did enjoy it, and do not regret the few minutes of my time it took to read. However, I do wish the synopsis indicated plainly that this was not a book or a full novel. It seems quite a few of us were misled.

Too short to fully develop story line. Good potential but didn't follow through

Weighing in at a whopping 13 pages...this is just not worth the read or the space. By the time you start warming up to the characters, another is introduced, there's a change of events and the whole things over!

This was a good story line. The characters were great, the storyline great. However, just as the characters started getting developed, BANG...it's over & done. The prequels that come with this lead into what might be some good books. Good enough to buy? I don't know.

Likeable heroine but way too short. I do plan to read more in this series though.

Main character is strong. Well written and believable.

The Amersham Rubies started off pretty interesting.  I was drawn in and my curiosity was piqued.  Unfortunately, the conflict wasn't resolved in a realistic fashion and I found the resolution too abrupt.  This is another one that is meant to draw the reader into the series and not necessarily this story.  Does this technique work?  I love historical fiction mysteries but this novella didn't draw me in.  There was little character development but it was adequate for the short story mystery presented.  I was into it until the solving of the mystery.

I enjoyed the start of two stories in this ebook but it were only clips of stories...the real meat of the story wasn't there and I thought I was getting a whole ebook story. Drats I guess I'll need to buy the entire book in stead of just these synopsis.

Fantastic short story that leaves the reading wanting more!!! This is my first Rhys Bowen book but definitely not my last!!! Highly recommend this gifted and highly awarded author!

I bought this title on speculation after reading praise for one of his other mystery series. Not terribly impressed. The character of Molly Murphy is likable enough, but much was fairly formulaic from plot points to stock reprehensible high society characters. Bowen's writing might shine more in a more expansive format, but unless I found a pile of his books in a guest room where I was staying, I don't think I would seek them out.

I was expecting a full length novel and instead got a 37 page "novella". Way too short, and it could have been fleshed out into a great story easily.

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.

It was very good light reading and enjoyable.

It should be noted that this is a short story, not a full length novel. With that in mind, it was entertaining. The preview at the end for the Molly Murphy novel was also interesting and a good sales pitch.

Would recommend for any age reader of mystery. Nice twist and turns to make your brain work a little harder.

I am a fan of Rhys Bowen and have read all the Molly Murphy books, so I was so excited to see this available! I was disappointed with how quickly the mystery was introduced and how quickly it was over. I realize this is a short story, but I feel that there wasn't enough details for the resolution to be plausible. I'm still a fan, but I'll stick with her full-length novels.

I was disappointed in the length of the book, otherwise it was really good.

Good story about a peasant's interaction with upper society's impression they are above the law.
