    1 thought on “Mystery Loves Company”

    1. Mystery Loves Company is the seventh book in the outstanding John Pickett mystery. This book finds John and Julia back in London at Julia's Curzon street home. As they settle into marriage, reality smacks them hard as the glaring class difference between them becomes a bit of a strain. Interestingly, the new case John works on involve lady Washbourne who, like John, has married way above her social class and in her case, her title husband married a wealthy tradesman daughter to secure his family [...]

    2. This must be considered a 'review in progress'. I've never done one before but Mystery Loves Company is about to set a precedence for me. I could easily rate this 5 stars already.I am not even half-way in the first chapter and already I'm in stitches. Lord Rupert in high dudgeon is in Julia's parlor reading her the riot act of 'libelous and slanderous article in Aunt Mildred's Parlour (that's a rag sheet, you know) about her being married beneath her to Mr. P and who should walk in, all at home [...]

    3. Series: John Pickett Mysteries #7Publication Date: 1/15/18I’m getting a late start on the John Pickett Mysteries series, but I fully intend to go back and read all of the previous books. Each book is a self-contained mystery along with the ongoing romance between John Pickett and Julia, Lady Fieldhurst. Talk about a mésalliance. You can’t get much more misaligned than a street kid who was a pick-pocket matched with a Viscountess from a very aristocratic family. John and Julia’s marriage i [...]

    4. Hmmm, not sure why GR isn't letting me place a star rating on this? Must be a glitch. I'd rate this at 2 stars. There were a couple parts that I liked but I gave it a lower rating because I am so disappointed in the character development in John Pickett. One thing that bugged me was the use of the word 'snag' and 'snagged'- as in "he snagged a pastry off the serving tray". Would someone have used that word in the early 1800s? It sounds like 6th grade 1980s America. I know this isn't historical f [...]

    5. I love John and Julia. They are one of my favorite couples. I still think that they should open a detective agency and solve mysteries.The crime that John solves is directly related to his domestic situation. The people that he interviews give him information to solve a crime and give him answers to his relationship with his wife.I love this series because there is no 21st century speech and I can hear the English accent. This book did not give any indication who the murderer was, and the actual [...]

    6. WellI devoured this series pretty quickly. I thought this was a perfect ending (I assume ending?) to the series. John solves another mystery and John and Julia have to work out some problems in their marriage. Very, very good. I think I need a break from this genre for awhile, but I will definitly be looking into other books by Sheri Cobb South.

    7. I enjoy this series very much. I like the author's Weaver Takes a Wife series also. The other stand alones not so much.

    8. Great readMust read, can't wait till the next one, and hear about the baby and another mystery to solve. Get her books
