After stumbling on The Beekeeper's Apprentice I sought this one out and it did not disappoint! Some time I will need to read Mr Conan Doyle's work :-) but in the mean time I'm loving Ms. Klinger's tales.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!! What a spectacular delight! I am currently waiting for the second book in the Mary Russell series and felt like I was missing my best friend until I stumbled upon this book which I thought would hold me over a bit. It is filled with "I wish" feelings, such as *I wish I had read Mary's War Journal in this book FIRST because it is like a prequel to "Beekeeper's Apprentice* and *I wish I had read some of the other books first because these stories were such spoilers* (which really only makes me SQUEAL with anticipation to read the remaining books in the series). I had to read the last story, "Stately Holmes," twice, which left me breathless. The illustrations are tiny in the Kindle version but regular-print reproductions follow each. Mary Russell fans: DO. NOT. MISS. THIS. BOOK. Amazing.

I discovered Laurie R King's Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes Mystery series while stuck at an airport. I found the Moor and since I wanted something to take me away from a busy miserable day, it looked like just the ticket. It was.

King has an ability to create atmosphere and "real" characters. Mary Russell Mysteries is a collection of short stores that for those of us who have read the entire series fill in the gaps with some additional information. While the stories do stand alone, they really shine when you've read the series. If you ever read Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Conan Doyle, you'll appreciate the additional dimension that has been added to Holmes, Mycroft, Mrs. Hudson and the other characters . I strongly suggest you begin at the beginning with "The Beekeeper's Apprentice and get ready to enjoy yourself.

A terrific set of the Mary Russell short stories all in one place. Find out about Holmes' and Russell's wedding. Read the amazingly informative journal of Mary as WWI opens and she loses nearly everyone she has ever cared for. Touching, interesting, and fun, these stories fill in the gaps that serious readers of the series want answered.
