really liked it
bookshelves: mystery

"The fire had burned down to nothing but a muttering glow" (1).
"Holly's dollhouse is a work of art, a perfect replica of a big Victorian house, complete with tiny overcomplicated furniture and tiny hunting scenes on the walls and tiny servants being socially oppressed" (215).
"Not one of those twenty-two years had been nice to Imelda" (224).
"The tea was strong enough to reach out of the pot and give you a punch" (268).
"Carmel fished out a hanky and put away the rest of her cry for later, now that a man needed attention" (322).
“Whatever I had come looking for—Scorcher, bless his predictable little heart, would presumably have suggested closure or some equivalent chunk of arsebiscuit—wasn’t there” (394).
