Controversy in new review of My Dear Watson!

OK, the other shoe finally dropped. I finally got the review I feared I might get from a dedicated Sherlockian–with critiques about canonical inconsistencies in My Dear Watson. The Well-Read Sherlockian is a well-respected blog in the world of Holmes and Watson fans, and I’m pleased to rate a review there, though.

Actually, the review is quite good, as far as the story and writing are concerned. In fact, it earned 4 out of 5 stars, discounting any non-canonical issues. So I’m more than pleased.

As is often said, all press is good press. Just spell my name right!  😉

    I actually won a copy of your book as first commenter on The Well-Read Sherlockian. I have been wanting to read it, so I am quite excited.

      I saw your comment on the blog, and I hope you enjoy the book! Excited to know it’s awarded as a prize. And btw, good catch about Mary Wollstonecraft as author of “Vindication.” I got that right in the book, so it must just have been the reviewer’s error!

    Thoroughly enjoyed “My Dear Watson”. Refreshing change from the typical writing style of Holmes stories, and an interesting plot to boot. Hoping there are more in the works, perhaps?

    p.s. I enjoyed your panel at Crime Bake – especially your comment about the challenges that a woman faces in being heard that a man doesn’t. So true, then and now.
