Review (#giftedbook): Murder At Balmoral

Happy February Reader Friends!

I have some fun posts planned for this month…so let’s see if 2023 is the year I actually start and keep to a posting schedule! Fingers crossed. I also have a bunch of big-for-me plans for this year and I can’t wait to share them when I have things better finalized. 🙂

However, today’s post! I only have a brief review for Chris McGeorge’s book A Murder At Balmoral, because while I had high hopes, I found it a bit lackluster.

I finished this book a couple of weeks ago and have been trying to figure out how I feel about it. What I can say is this: I definitely didn’t hate it, but it’s not a favorite. I enjoyed the alternate timeline/alternate family tree concept for the British royal family, and I always love a “closed door” mystery. However, I found the book difficult to get into, and while the very last bit felt satisfying, overall the end felt like a let-down.

I think this story had some interesting things to say on the institution of the monarchy, and it did keep me guessing…so I guess this one is just okay for me! If you enjoy alternate histories, locked room mysteries, and the British monarchy, you might enjoy this one!

Keep Reading!
