Free eBook A Bitter Draught (Ravenwood Mysteries #2) –

Isobel Kingston Is DeadOr So Everyone Believes When A Mysterious Woman Writes Her Last Words In Sand, Isobel Steps Out Of The Shadows To Uncover The Truth As She Plunges Into A Storm Of Betrayal, The Winds Are Determined To Throw Atticus Riot On Her Course, And The Two Detectives Collide In A Sea Of Madness And Murder I LIKE THE main characters quite a lot in the first and second book of this series Unlike a Sherlock and Watson I think they balance each other strengths and weaknesses very well Definitely looking forward to the third book. If you think that second installments are always letdowns, this one will change your expectations Like the first, the mystery is well crafted, and the characters are just so I m obsessed with every single one It s going to be a sad day when I finish the third one and have to wait for the next one to come around A Bitter Draught is a continuation of From the Ashes so they do need to be read in chronological order to best understand the characters and timelines You will also fall in love with 19th century San Francisco as a character and will appreciate the consideration the author has given it, especially in this book The adventure takes you on the water, in the city, to Napa Valley, and back.Without giving spoilers away, if you love a great mystery involving a seemingly confusing knotted up question of how would this have happened , historical fiction, well developed characters seriously obsessed with Riot , and dashes of humor, intrigue, a cat named Watson, and attention to detail, this series is a must read. Sabrina Flynn knocks it out of the park in her second installment in her Ravenwood Detective Agency series This follow up to From The Ashes brings Atticus, Isobel, et al together on the hunt attempting to solve a series of murders, at first apparently unrelated but upon further investigation unraveling a web of mysterious circumstances and unexpected evil The author deftly tells a tale of love and hate, jealousy and fidelity, murder and mayhem, in a fast paced and enthralling story that doesn t let go Continued excellent character development enfolded in a first class mystery makes this a five star read, imho I wait with great anticipation for the further exploits of the Ravenwood Detective Agency Great second instalment in this mystery series I loved how the relationship of Riot and Bel slowly changed and then developed into something Sabrina Flynn has a wonderful way with words that pulls you right in and be part of the stories she tells She draws her characters with swift and accurate strokes and doesn t lose sight of side characters they all come alive the moment you open the book.Very well done
