#BookReview: The Seven 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle @stu_turton #5STARS


My Review: 5 STARS

Get ready for the most unusual, overwhelmingly impressive journey through this puzzle land of  “Murder at the Masquerade Ball”. 

You won’t need a ticket to get in, just get a copy of the book (the hard copy so you can enjoy the map of Blackheath, a cozy and quiet place to read (you won’t want any distractions), time to ponder all the twists that are going to keep your brain busy!!

I loved it, but needed to pace myself and take my time to enjoy all the twisty turns that the narrator, Aiden Bishop, threw at me during his attempts to stop a murder that has already taken place!

So many times while reading this one, I would have to just pause and smile at the action that was taking place because I was just so amused!!

It was so atmospheric and the different players were all very intriguing and kept popping up throughout the story.  Some favorites were the footman, Anna, Evelyn, and the Plague Doctor!

I enjoyed my time at Blackheath House and this totally unique reading experience.  I would recommend if you enjoy complex layered mysteries with a large cast of witty characters.

I borrowed this book from my library, listened on Hoopla (some chapters), and ended up buying the kindle version half-way through.

I know I’m late to the party, but so glad I picked this one up! Thanks to all my blogger friends that reviewed this one and gave me the push! ❤


      • Me too! He said it would take a while to write though (from a Twitter conversation I was following anyway, lol) since it took him 4 years to write Evelyn-we might have some time to wait! But it will be worth it I bet! 🙂

      • I know, but that would be me if I were ever to write the book that I keep saying that I plan on writing, lol! It takes me 2-3 days to write a book review unless I sit down and focus and that still takes me 4 or 5 hours! I have such horrible writer’s block. You should have seen me trying to write my 300 pg dissertation for my PhD, haha. My hubby wanted to sedate me because I was a wreck.

    • Well, I started with the audio and then picked up the library book for the map and the guest list and I have to say it really helped me keep track of all the action! Although the narrator is fantastic.
