This was a thoroughly enjoyable romp with two of my favorite characters. A must for fans of the author's Russell & Holmes series, but also worth a read for those new to these books. ( )

Interesting eventful and appropriate. ( )

Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes got married at the end of A Monstrous Regiment of Women. Not much detail is given to the act. More a statement that they did get married.

This little novella tells the story how it all happened. And, it's a glorious story, with both humor, seriousness and a trigger-happy cousin. Say what? You just have to read the story to find out! ;)

On a side note, I have read The Murder of Mary Russell and there are parts that brought a smile to my face thanks to the knowledge of the story in the book.

I hope you will enjoy this short novella as much as I did!

Cute, but adds nothing to the relationship we didn't already know. ( )

This short story was released before The Murder of Mary Russell, which it is loosely-connected to, but is set just after A Monstrous Regiment of Women.

It's a pretty straightforward story but I liked it. If it didn't involve Holmes and Russell, I would describe the story as "cute" - cute isn't the right word for those two. ( )

Book description
When Mary Russell and her long-time mentor Sherlock Holmes decide to marry in early 1921, it’s a practical decision, merely an extension of their partnership—right? No romantic nonsense for these two. Only, this simple arrangement soon begins to go sideways, and....
