Review: Compound a Felony: A Queer Affair of Sherlock Holmes by Elinor Gray

compoundCompound a Felony: A Queer Affair of Sherlock Holmes by Elinor Gray

This is the tiniest review in the universe…at least for long-winded me. I loved this book so much that after buying the Kindle version, I want to buy the paperback so that I can reread it. Obviously, I need to buy the paperback so that I can review it properly!

It’s a sweet love story submerged with romance, domesticity, kink, and an old-fashioned atmosphere. John and Sherlock are inverts, and delightfully so. The sex and the kink are realistic and hot, as are Sherlock and John’s qualms and desires. It is also well-written and literate, thank goodness! My recommendation is to buy it in paperback so that you can reread it.
