5.0 von 5 Sternen Can't wait for more. 21. Juni 2014
Von ukmum
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A different approach to crime. Politics subtely involved. It gives one a good idea of London life just after the war and from where some of our prejudices arise. To learn more about the "cover-ups" in the higher ranks the Cambridge Spies, a fact-based BBC drama, can be recommended.

Can't wait to read more by Sara Sheridan and her sleuths Mirabelle and Vesta.

Mich hat dieser Roman so gefesselt wie Butterbrotpapier: Man ist die ganze Zeit dabei, sich zu fragen, was denn wohl eingewickelt ist und was sich da entwickelt--- leider löst sich diese Frage bis zum Ende des Buches nicht...

5.0 von 5 Sternen porn, murder, kidnapping, and all that jazz 25. September 2014
Von JS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Really exciting fast paced adventure story, with mirabelle waking up from her withdrawal from the world after her lover's death, and reconnecting with old colleagues from her spy days. Vesta 's childhood friend, a jazz sax player, comes to her for help, and catapults mirabelle and vesta into a London based kidnapping investigation. There are great atmospheric descriptions of tiny jazz clubs, elegant university clubs, belgravia homes and shabby tenements in 1952 London. The plot is twisty and only late in the book is the real villain discovered. My only quibble on this one: nearly all of the action takes place over one weekend. Mirabelle climbs over walls, walks for miles, falls into a car repair pit, and only shreds her stockings? She doesn't bring any other clothes. She runs up to London without any luggage, and wears the same green tweeds the whole time. I felt like I needed a long soak in a tub as much as she did.
5.0 von 5 Sternen enjoyable cozy mysteries. 25. Dezember 2014

This is the second book in the series and although it would stand alone. I suggest you read them in order. I have never read any books set in this time period but I enjoy her addition of facts about the period. I also enjoy the strong female leads. The romance is fairly minor. The book is all about solving the mystery. I loved it and am off to buy the next story in the series.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Love the Characters 8. April 2014

Sara's books are set in an interesting time for women and the country of England. Her ladies are very resourceful and even when afraid buck up their courage because victims are counting on them to find resolution. I went right back to Amazon and ordered her next book.
4.0 von 5 Sternen I like Mirabelle !!! 24. August 2013

Very cool little detective story. Nice job of creating the 50's feel without going overboard. Tight mystery with very engaging characters. You will like this book.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Not quite convincing in period or character 29. April 2013
Von Sid Nuncius - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm afraid that I didn't get on nearly as well with this book as some other reviewers here. It did have its attractions - two likeable and engaging heroines and a decent enough plot, for example - but overall it didn't quite work for me.

The story involves Mirabelle Bevan, a reluctant but brilliant and doughty investigator, trying to get to the bottom of a debutante's disappearance and the subsequent death of a friend of her redoubtable sidekick, Vesta Churchill. It's a decently plotted mystery, set in Brighton and London in 1952 - and it is the setting which is a part of the problem for me because it doesn't really ring true. Sara Sheridan gives us quite frequent period details, but they are often very unsubtly signposted. For example, "The receptionist was absorbed in a crime novel - the latest by James Hadley Chase, Mirabelle noticed..." This is utterly irrelevant to any plot or character and these clumsy intrusions disrupted the narrative for me. Despite these garish Period Signposts, Sheridan allows very un-period usages to creep in to the language - "he'd have to up his game" for example - often enough to dispel any period atmosphere, and she describes things like "a black-and-white TV" on a market stall. Specifying black-and-white really jarred (there wasn't any other kind in 1952!) and there were several similar examples.

I also found the storytelling a little clunky at times, with a couple of quite outrageous coincidences and things like Mirabelle spraining her ankle so badly that she wouldn't be able to drive, but shinning up the outside of buildings without difficulty within 12 hours, and the whole thing completely forgotten about two days later - although by then she was nipping around London interviewing people with her collarbone badly shattered and no anaesthetic, which I suppose would have taken her mind off a sprained ankle.

Taken together, these things meant that I never really got into the narrative nor quite believed in the characters or the setting. It wasn't a bad book by any means - portraying racial attitudes of the time while not making them (as they often were) so poisonously offensive to a modern audience as to make the book unreadable is a tricky balance which she deals with very well, for example. It's just that as a whole it didn't convince or involve me, and although others have clearly enjoyed it very much, I can only give it a very qualified recommendation.
