"Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Disappearing Diva" is the second book in the Marty Hudson Mystery series. It stars Martha "Marty" Hudson, a poor barista who has trouble making ends meets, until her long-lost aunt leaves her a Victorian house, and she sets up her own PI business.
In this second addition of the series, a missing person’s case turns into a missing corpse’s case. Whoa.
I liked this book way better than the first book in the series. The beginning really captured my attention, and the characters seemed more developed here.
Marty’s my favorite character in the series, but Irene, her best friend really grew on me in this addition. I like her personality, and I really value the friendship she has with Marty. They’re truly great friends.
The mystery itself really captivated me, making me read it in one sitting. Everything just fell perfectly into place, and just hooked me in until the end. No predictable vibes at all.
Overall, I really enjoyed this! This fast-paced mystery really left me satisfied. The characters were all delightfully interesting, especially Marty and Irene. Definitely an A+.
From #1 Kindle & New York Times bestselling author Gemma Halliday and USA Today bestselling author Kelly Rey comes a story about Sherlock Holmes, two savvy female detectives, and one chance to catch a killer and the hot Dr. Watson at the same time...
If there's one thing Martha "Marty" Hudson can't say no to, it's her best friend Irene Adler. So when Irene's little white lie about a fake detective named Sherlock Holmes turns into a real case from an actual paying client, Marty is all in. But their simple missing person case takes a deadly turn when the missing "person" ends up being a missing corpse. Rebecca Lowery was an opera singer in life and, according to her sister, who hires the famous detective to find her, a diva with capital D. When her body goes missing after a supposedly accidental fall, Marty & Irene can think of several people who might want the diva to disappear permanently--especially if her missing body is actually hiding evidence of her murder. Is it the boyfriend with a temper and a shady record, the jealous understudy who's now stealing the show, the creepy undertaker with possible ties to the underworld, or the estranged sister herself who now inherits everything? Marty and Irene aim to find out, even while trying to keep cool around the hot ME, Dr. Watson, and dodging questions from the Irregulars blogger, Wiggins, about the mysterious man behind the name Sherlock Holmes. Will the ladies be able to pull this one off? Or are they in over their heads...and possibly about to take their own final bows?
