Book Review of Death Before Compline by Sharan Newman

I had the great pleasure of attending a book event at Poisoned Pen with Sharan Newman talking about her new book Death Before Compline.  Each short story had plenty of mystery and intrigue…A GREAT READ!

Death Before Compline is a collection of short stories that go along with the full length novels Sharan Newman wrote over the years. A 12th century girl Catherine Levendeur makes up most of the short stories. She is a 12th century Nancy Drew, always running into some kind of trouble, always a murder she is determined to solve. Catherine is a fun witty character to read about. I thoroughly enjoyed Sharan Newman’s writing and attention to detail. You could really imagine yourself in the 12th century. I have to admit as much I enjoyed Catherine, I fell in love with Solomon’s stories which took up the last two short stories. He is extremely likable and smart. I’m now intrigued to read all of Sharan Newman’s novels and get to know these characters even better. This is the first book published by Bagwyn books and if this is any indication of what they will be offering, I’m eagerly awaiting the other books they publish.
