The Dwarf Did It...

Murder At Half Moon Gate


Murder At Half Moon Gate by Andrea Penrose

This was the first book I’ve read by this author. When I first requested this book on NetGalley I didn’t realize that this was book two in a series. Even though I never read the first book, this one was really easy to follow as a stand alone. There was enough detail and filler information about past events so I wasn’t completely clueless. I like the sarcasm in the characters. It made the dialogue fun to read. The plot itself was well-developed. The character cast and the twist and turns of this book all flowed together nicely. The murders were great! It was an “Oh here is a body” type of thing. It actually had some great detail. I really wanted to like this book. When I found out it was a series, I did some research and read nothing but good things about it. I’m not going to lie though, I struggled to finish this book. Nothing about it was bad perse, I just felt like the story has been done before. It was very VERY similar to several other mysteries I have read in the past. I loved the characters but there was nothing special about this story that hooked me in. Now, just because this book wasn’t my cup of tea, doesn’t I don’t recommend it. I would totally suggest this book to people who are into historical mysteries and like books such as Sherlock Holmes. If this book ever turned into a TV series…. I’d tune in. For my reading preferences though it was a been there done that scenario for me. I did like this author’s writing style and would be interested in reading other books by this author.  3 out of 5 stars from me, The Dwarf Did It.
