"Oh, my! What a treat it is for a reader who loves mysteries to find a new one that is simply a delight in every way... I loved The Hotel Westend. Loved. It. How's that for a review? Well, it's definitely how I felt about this excellent new entry into the murder mystery category by author Ashley Lynch-Harris. The author has done a stellar job in creating interesting characters that her readers will find intriguing and relatable. This story line is fresh and full of surprises, not always an easy feat in the world of mysteries these days. Take it from a person who reads a ton of mysteries, this is a book that you won't be able to figure out from the first few chapters, which is a refreshing change from many out there. I highly recommend The Hotel Westend to any reader who loves a good mystery, or just a great work of fiction in general. I look forward to reading more from the talented and promising author Ashley Lynch-Harris in the very near future, and hope that she is already hard at work on her next great read!" - Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite, 5 Stars "I must admit I was just a tiny bit skeptical when I began reading Ashley Lynch-Harris's traditional drawing room murder mystery, The Hotel Westend. The author's love of and roots in the works of Agatha Christie and other classic mystery writers was clearly apparent, but I did wonder if she would be able to pull off a mystery novel so steeped in that tradition and have it be both original and unpredictable at the same time. My concerns, I'm thrilled to announce, ended up being all for naught. Lynch-Harris' murder mystery is cunning and intricately plotted, with scads of red herrings draped all over the storyline, which are bound to confuse the most careful of mystery readers. Her sleuths, the bookseller, Elsie, and her mystery author sister, Frances, are a joy to follow as they discuss clues, suspicions and findings via the letters they dash out to each other throughout the story. This solidly plotted and oh so smoothly written story kept me glued to the pages until I finally reached the very satisfying solution to the mystery. I'm looking forward to further traditional mysteries by Lynch-Harris, and hope to witness more of Elsie and Frances' masterful sleuthing. The Hotel Westend is most highly recommended." - Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite, 5 Stars
