May 31st's Book Beginning and Friday 56

Welcome to the final Book Beginning and Friday 56 for May 2019.  Hard to believe we are that far into the year, isn't it?

This week's book is A Baker Street Wedding by Michael Robertson.

If you aren't familiar with this series, it features a lawyer who has rented offices on Baker Street in London, and gets the letters people write to Sherlock Holmes as a result.  Different premise for sure.  This is the sixth in the series, and here is how it begins.

Laura Penobscott was too tall.

Okay, so maybe not the most intriguing opening, but I will admit it caught my attention.

Moving on to page 56, we find this:

"Now, don't be a city grump," said Laura.  "I know you don't like crows, ever since that incident in the Cotswolds, but this is nothing like that."

I'll be reviewing this book next week, so I do hope you'll come back to see my thoughts.

In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend.


  1. This is different and I would love to read this series!

    My Friday 56 from The Daydreamer Detective

  2. I'm a sucker for anything set in London, and this looks intriguing. I'm so far behind on my middle grade reading, though. Your reviews of mysteries make the. So tempting!

  3. I think I have the first in this series on my TBR mountain. I'll have to dig it out. This week I am spotlighting The Liaden Universe Constellation IV by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller - a collection of short stories. Happy reading!

  4. Oh this looks good and this is a series I've never heard of before!

  5. I'm curious to learn more about this incident that's mentioned in your 56. :-) Happy weekend!

  6. Love the sound of this premise. :)
