Review: A Taste for Honey (Mycroft #1)

User Review  - Alan - Goodreads

Quite a charming story involving Mycroft Holmes (or is it really Sherlock?), although his stiff-upper-lip Englishman is rather peevish and annoying at times. Heard has a rather rambling style, but once you get used to it, it's worth the wade. Read full review

Review: A Taste for Honey (Mycroft #1)

User Review  - Alyssa - Goodreads

Padded out to the point of being unreadable. HF Heard has written decent short stores in a similar vein (the "scientific" detective story) and maybe this could have been one. Read full review
