“Craig Stephen Copland’s newest book, The Adventure of the Notable Bachelorette is a fun read, full of intrigue, deception and mystery. Sherlock Holmes was ready to chase pompous Lord St. Simon out of his office until the pretentious English lord convinces him that his beautiful American wife has been kidnapped. Never one to ignore a challenge, Holmes and Dr. Watson begin their search only to be met by an odd turn of events when newly accused Lady St. Simon seeks their help instead.

I love the timeframe and setting of Victorian England, and the familiar characters of Sherlock Holmes classics. Mr. Copland has once again kept my attention throughout this book. “- Amazon Review
