threesistersThree Sisters by Helen Smith

Three Sisters and Showstoppers are two novella-length stories in the Emily Castles mystery series. The first full-length novel, Invitation to Die, will be published by Thomas & Mercer in October 2013.

The Emily Castles mystery series is set in present-day London. It features twenty-six-year-old Londoner Emily Castles and her neighbor, eccentric philosophy professor Dr. Muriel Crowther.

In Three Sisters, Emily goes to a party in a big house at the end of her street. She’s sure she witnesses a murder, but no one will believe her. She teams up with Dr. Muriel to investigate.


This is the first book/story in the new Emily Castles Mystery series.  I was overwhelmed at the beginning of this story with all of the description of the party going on at the neighbor’s house.  It did take me awhile to get into the story but when I did, I found Emily and her neighbors to be a bit quirky.    I did have an idea of who did what but did not know all of the details….just one of those feelings.  It was still a good story and I read the second one as well, Showstoppers, which I liked a little bit better.

Overall I give this 3 1/2 stars
