I had mixed feelings about this book going in, because while I had read rave reviews from people who loved it, I recently read the prequel (A Singular and Whimsical Problem) and didn't really care for it. I'm happy to say, though, that this one was better than I expected and I ended up liking it.

I liked Jem - she was probably my favorite character. I also liked the mystery. To me, the book had a YA feel to it, which I wasn't expecting since it's not that genre, and therefore some of the things just felt silly.

One of the things I wasn't a fan of was the footnotes. They really took me out of the story and I got to where I didn't even read most of them.

All in all, The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder got better for me as I read. I feel like if you're a fan of Sherlock-type stories, you'll probably like it even more than I did. A side note: the book is beautifully designed inside. ;)
