Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

A fun, fast paced read in the Oscar Wilde Murder Mystery Series Written By Gyles Brandreth

Oscar Wilde and the Vampire Murders: A Mystery (Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries) - Gyles Brandreth

The Premise: Oscar Wilde, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Robert Sherard team up with Bram Stoker to solve a mystery regarding the murder of a dutchess at her own party, when she's found dead with two tiny puncture marks on her throat.


My Thoughts: I really enjoyed the historic atmosphere Gyles Brandreth creates in his writing, in which the mystery unfolds through diary entries, newspaper clippings, telegrams and letters. This mystery also deals with "hysteria" and is highly entertaining because of all the strong personalities involved. All in all, a fun, fast paced read in which I, the reader, felt as if I were part of this motley literary mystery crew.
