Down a Dark River by Karen Odden:
1. The stage - the year is 1878 and we are in Victorian
London, a time of discovery and innovation,
a time when people are still bound by their class and history.
2. The lead - Michael Corravan is an inspector in Scotland
Yard, a young man with a prickly character and complicated
history, in no hurry to share his secrets.
3. The supporting cast - Corravan is surrounded by a motley
crew of friends and colleagues who all add another
dimension both to his character and to the story.
4. The plot - the book, the first in a new series,
begins with the disappearance of one woman,
the murder of another and a river that runs between them.
Nothing more from me, this is a spoiler-free zone.
5. The summary - if you are in the market for a
hard-to-put-down historical mystery with a different voice,
plenty of atmosphere, plot twists, suspense, quality writing
and a satisfying end, this could well be the book for you.
Featured: I upcycled these bags
with a tea wash and embroidery.
Thank you for the review. That one sounds right up my street. Those recycled bags are gorgeous! xx
I agree, the bags are lovely! What a great recycling project.
I may have to look for that book.
Love those bags.
The bags are cute! I always love a good detective series, this one is new to me. Thanks for the review. PS, thanks for visiting my blog. Take care, have a great day!
What an interesting book!
I liked how you used tea wash for the cute bags!
Sounds so good! The upcycled bags are a great idea. I have some small linen bags that I have not been able to ditch. Hmmm...
The bags are so pretty, I love how you gave them a bit of antique look and your embroidery on them is so lovely!
I love your bags and your review. But I will never read scary books :-)
I've written this down as others on Amazon seem to agree with you and this is a favorite time period and location for me. I tend to read cozy mysteries about women sleuths but want to see if my library can get it for me. Your little tea stained bags are so pretty with their embroidery that speaks to my longing for spring heart!
I always need new books to add to my list---especially for those long car or plane trips!
P.S. Your bags are so sweet!!
I will be adding this book to my read list. Thank you for the review.
I love the recycled bags. Flowers, bees and brightness!
