The Mystery of Albert E. Finch: 04/09/22
The Mystery of Albert E. Finch by Callie Hutton and Nano Nagle (Narrator) is the third volume in the Victorian Book Club mystery series. It opens with the wedding of Amy and William.
They expect to have a lovely honeymoon at Brighton Beach. Unfortunately Amy's cousin is poisoned during their wedding breakfast, thus forcing them to stay in Bath until the crime is solved.
Immediately after the murder I knew who had done it and I had a fairly short list of reasons why. Part of my reasoning stems from a certain character trope that has been popular in the last decade or so. The other reason was how a particular character reacted upon the woman's death.
What kept me reading was the marriage plot. Namely I was amused by how the newlyweds were kept from their honeymoon. There was also a secondary murder to keep things interesting, but didn't distract me from my initial hypothesis.
As of writing this review I don't know if a fourth mystery is planned. If there is, I plan to read it.
