Review of A Murder by Any Name by Suzanne M. Wolfe

Wolfe's book was a fun, quick read that kept me engaged the whole way through.

The Elizabethan-era detail in A Murder by Any Name was wonderful; many of the characters were lovely, faulted, and interesting; and the dialogue was great.


The character of the brothel madam with a heart of gold has probably been overdone in literature. In this case, Kat wasn’t fully developed as a character so she felt more like a concept than a real person.


A minor note unrelated to plot, character, and story: I was driven to distraction by typos and what felt like grammatically incorrect sentences, frequently absent but necessary commas, and minor repetition and contradictions.


But Wolfe's book was a fun, quick read that kept me engaged the whole way through.

Any Bossy thoughts on this book?

I also enjoyed the second book in this series, A Course of All Treasons (mentioned in the Greedy Reading List Three Books I'm Reading Now, 11/25/20 Edition).
