{{Book Review}} The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder | In 1910 Toronto, while other bachelor girls perfect their domestic skills and find husbands, two friends perfect their sleuthing skills and find a murderer.

Inspired by their fascination with all things Sherlock Holmes, best friends and flatmates Merinda and Jem launch a consulting detective business. The deaths of young Irish women lead Merinda and Jem deeper into the mire of the city's underbelly, where the high hopes of those dreaming to make a new life in Canada are met with prejudice and squalor.

While searching for answers, donning disguises, and sneaking around where no proper ladies would ever go, they pair with Jasper Forth, a police constable, and Ray DeLuca, a reporter in whom Jem takes a more than professional interest. Merinda could well be Toronto's premiere consulting detective, and Jem may just find a way to put her bachelorgirlhood behind her forever---if they can stay alive long enough to do so.

*My Review*
Rachel McMillan is a new author to me, I found the book "The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder" quirky and sort of eccentric. The characters, Jem and Merinda are very interesting. They go against society by not getting married and becoming a housewife, but instead they decide to solve a murder. There were some funny moments, that made me chuckle...but overall I found that this book was slow in most parts. It wasn't a bad book, but sadly it wasn't a page turner for me. If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes type mysteries this book is for you!
