Review: Crimson Rooms

Through Mother Talk, I had the chance to read an advance copy of The Crimson Rooms by Katharine McMahon.

The book is historical fiction, which is a genre I thoroughly enjoy.  The Crimson Rooms did not disappoint!  It's a mystery (another genre I enjoy!) set in the 1920's.  The story is about a young female lawyer, a young boy, his mother, and his deceased father's family. I won't spoil the plot, but it was interesting and full of twists and turns that I didn't anticipate.

I found the book well-written, with developed characters and plenty of detail about England after WW1.  It's about family dynamics, and legal drama, and mystery. It is quite a delightful book, and one that I would recommend.

The book is published by Penguin Publishing, and can be purchased from their site in both hardcover and e-format.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mother Talk on behalf of G.P. Putnam's Sons / Riverhead and received a copy of the book to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
