5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute pure nectar.
If like me you are a Holmesian purist, then this is for you, an absolute gem, the Author knows her Holmes and Watson, and the period. Hopefully there will be many many more from this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good light read but not new stories.
Nice how some of the old clients of Sherlock come back for more advice and help. But unfortunately, the stories are only rewritten of the original stories cleverly done but still a rewrite so I would not class then as new stories. Saying that It is ok as a light read but would have preferred it if the stories had been more original in their content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the type, 27 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sherlock Holmes: Repeat Business: New Stories of the Great Detective (Kindle Edition)
It is impressive how the author manages to keep up the style of the original stories. Once or twice she may have become a little too antique! Things jarred a bit in the Girl Gone story. No one in Kent (where I live) has ever talked like the farmers here, or anywhere else, I suspect, and certainly not yeoman farmers). It is also noticeable that their strange dialect soon softens after their first few sentences. What is more, in this story the author forgets about the existence of railways, it seems, since we read of taking a mail coach to the north of England. I think such coaches became extinct at least half a century before this tale is set. Also, it would not have gone from Kent. (London is
in the way.) It must be hard to get everything right from a farm in New Zealand, of course.

Some of the stories are tame and lack any sense of excitement, but they are still the best of their type that I have read.

So many writers of Holmes these days ,its sometimes hard to pick good from bad,this one in my opinion is mostly very good with some entertaining stories. Good value for money and worth a read.

You could really believe you are reading Authur Conan Doyle .I have enjoyed the stories as though they were originals .
There is something very relaxing with those stories of Victorian London

A must for Holmes addicts!

A really good idea to give previous "customers" a second encounter with the master detective. I loved each story.

I only managed three stories so it may have gotton better but Holmes deductions seemed to have been arrived at by magic instead of logic and observation. Not my cup of tea.

An interesting take on the pastiche, well written if a tad too Victorian in it's vocabulary.
Definitely one to keep!
