Blog Tour Poster The Art of Sherlock Holmes

The Art of Sherlock Holmes is a totally unique experience. Imagine a dozen or more of the finest artists in the U.S. creating art for some the best new short stories written by some of the finest Holmes authors in the world. Each artist has envisioned their version of one story specifically selected for them. All stories and art in one large, hardcover, coffee table presentation volume. This first edition features artists from West Palm Beach, Florida. Future editions will be global, with participating artists contributing from all over the world. The Art of Sherlock Holmes was conceived and curated by Phil Growick, himself a renowned Holmes author.

MoMoBookDiary Review:

Thank you to Caroline of bitsaboutbooks (@CarolineBookBit) for inviting me to take part in this blog tour for The Art of Sherlock Holmes.

I have read and reviewed a number of Sherlock Holmes books on this blog and previous to my blogging life. I have never been so taken with a book before. This is simply awesome.  The art is fascinating and, in my opinion, relates wonderfully with the individual stories.

This is definately a book any Sherlock fan will want to have in their collection – on their coffee table for all to see!  

It is a book that you will find yourself picking up over and over again. 

In a word – brilliant!

Thank you to Caroline of bitsaboutbooks (@CarolineBookBit) for inviting me to take part in this blog tour for The Detective, The Woman and the Pirate’s Bounty by Amy Thomas.

I love everthing Sherlock Holmes and was delighted to be invited to share my review of The Detective, The Woman and the Pirate’s Bounty by Amy Thomas on to this blog tour. Amy Thomas has written an easy read, less than 200 pages, fascinating book in true Holmes style.

The story leads Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler across the world to America in the search for pirate’s treasure. I very much enjoyed reading more of the relationship between Holmes and Adler.  In typical Holmes style the book is expertly written and a wonderful addition to the Sherlock Holmes world!

I was very interested to discover that Amy has another three Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler novels out there and have already added these to my ‘TBR’ list.

The Celtic Phoenix by Kim Krisco

An enigmatic jewelry case holding human remains forces Sherlock Holmes out of retirement to chase a coldblooded murderer.

To follow the trail of the murderer taunting him,  he needs Tessa Wiggins, a former Baker Street irregular, by his side. The two find themselves battling forces arising from a time before England was a country—when the Celts were fighting for survival.

Though set in 1919, The Celtic Phoenix is steeped in the enigmatic culture of the ancient Celts who reigned over much of Europe three thousand years ago. It was a time when the bond with Nature was strong . . . when people walked in the olde ways . . . when women were the equals to men as warriors, priests, and poets.

The Celtic Phoenix is the journey of three women who rise from the ashes of their past like fearsome phoenixes to shake the rational foundations upon which Sherlock Holmes built his life and career.

MoMoBookDiary Review:

Thank you to Caroline of BitsaboutBooks (@CarolineBookBit) for inviting me to take part in this book blog tour for Kim Krisco’s The Celtic Phoenix.  

I found this to be a gripping story featuring the brilliant Sherlock Holmes.  The author has brilliantly written a tale which has the feel of Arthur Conan Doyle but with a new exciting twist to the plot.  I would definately read more from this author. 

Take time out and read this awesome, gripping story. 

Thank you Caroline Vincent, Kim Krisco and MX Publishing.

His lifelong fascination for master storyteller, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and his creation Sherlock Holmes, is what inspires Kim Krisco to write his new Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

As a reader, Kim always wished he’d learn more about Holmes’ inner life. Where Doyle was not able to do that in short stories, Kim could allow for more detail and in-depth character development in his novels and novellas.

Kim endeavours to capture the authentic feel of the Sherlock Holmes novels, placing them in historical settings, oftentimes interacting with real historical characters. This is what makes Kim’s Sherlock Holmes books unique historical mysteries.

Aside from writing, Kim and his wife Sara followed their dream to experience more profoundly the beauty of nature by surrounding themselves by it. Abandoning most of their material possessions, they feel happier than ever in their cabin deep in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.
