Seems the perfect blanket to cosy up with for this Scottish based mystery! Pre pandemic I used to love #readingonlocation perhaps I‘ll now #dressforreading instead!

Another good book in this historical crime fiction, we continue to learn about Will and Sarah, their lives and another murder they get involved with and attempt to solve. Set in Victorian Edinburgh.

And it's a wrap = book 3 of the series read/listened to.

This time Raven and Fisher try to find a missing baby, a baby farmer, the murderer of a philanthropist, and need to sort out their relationship.

Loved the historical notes at the end of the book.

robinb I really like this series. I‘m interested to see how things play out in their relationship. That was a surprising twist in this one. 2mo
julesG @robinb I was actually annoyed by that twist. I'm glad Sarah gave Will a piece of her mind about it. It was so frustratingly typical male behaviour. 2mo
robinb @julesG I agree! I kept thinking the author was just putting us on but ended up confused that things didn‘t play out as expected. Sarah was great in this one. 😊 Will, not so much. 😬 2mo

I'm making an early start on the #NovelNovember #readathon. It's roughly 4 hours away, in my time zone.

I read this so quickly I didn‘t have time to shelve it as Currently Reading 😂 This is my favourite book in the series. I love the setting and the medical details. Pairs nicely with The Doctors Blackwell, by Janice P. Nimura; Elizabeth Blackwell makes an appearance in this book.

Will and Sarah continue their grisly yet somehow adorable adventures! This was my favorite of the three books so far, so fun and engaging! I have listened to the audio books and Bryan Dick is a wonderful reader, I really cannot rate his performance highly enough! I wish this would be made into a TV series (has it?) also, don‘t miss the afterward on this one, it talks about what parts were based on factual history, I loved it!

There should be a law that states all books must have pretty end papers - maps preferred! 🤣🤣🤣

Chrissyreadit Yes! 3mo
megnews Agreed! 3mo

I really enjoyed book 1 in this series, have yet to read book 2 but happy to be gifted book 3! I‘m fascinated by these authors - Ambrose Parry is the pen name for a husband and wife writing team - one a famous author and one a highly regarded anaesthetist!

emmaturi I am looking forward to get this one, hopefully from the library though. 3mo

While I was invested in the mysteries within this third in series, I wasn‘t quite as happy with the progression of relationships. There are actually two cases that are interconnected, one involves the death of a wealthy but unscrupulous man, the other, missing babies. Warning, there are very dark issues here, I‘ll mention in spoiler below. The connection between Dr. Raven and Sarah becomes a bit convoluted and takes an unexpected turn 🔻

robinb that dismayed me. Otherwise a good read. 4/5⭐️ 4mo

For it to be so sudden and without any preceding illness, assume it must have been his heart,' Simpson suggested. 'Which is remarkable in itself for being proof that he had one.'

James,' Mrs Simpson admonished. He was a generous donor to the hospitals of this city.'

Always great to be back in the world of Will Raven. Plus i love the connection between him and Sarah. She is also an amazing character. I still want them to get their happy after but I love that he wasn't willing to keep her from her dreams, he supports them which is so refreshing. The mystery itself was well written and cleverly put together. I had figured out some bits but not all and i really enjoyed how it came to together. #Netgalley 5*

This is a fabulous series & this, the third installment, is probably my favourite so far. It's just hugely enjoyable. It's a murder mystery with a complex and convoluted non-slushy romance (Sarah & Raven are the Ross & Rachel of Victorian Edinburgh) and an engaging, well constructed plot that twists & turns at a cracking pace. The characters are like old friends now & I found the whole thing compelling & satisfying. Can't wait for the next one!

eri.reads Stacked. Looked the sure up on GR. Sounds intriguing! 🤗 6mo
