A short review to update challenges
When this came to my attention, I knew it was for me. First of all, the narrator is Steve West! I really enjoy Sherlock Holmes style mysteries so that was also a plus.
The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes is the start of a new The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes Mysteries series. I enjoyed the mystery as well as the setup of the world and the characters. It is set in England, and features the progeny of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, working the case. I loved the smart deductions made with excellent observations. There was even a bit of a romance.
I can’t wait to go on with A Study of Treason to have another case with these engaging sleuths. And more Steve West!
I chose to listen this story because STEVE WEST!!!!!! He’s a favorite favorite. I loved listening to this story at my usual 1.5x speed. I appreciate his work with both male and female voices. But honestly, I could listen to him read anything probably. His performance definitely enhances my enjoyment.
