    Lady Gold Investigates Volume 3 by Lee Strauss was another entertaining afternoon read for me. Ms. Strauss' descriptive writing allows me to enjoy visiting London without leaving home. These stories may be short but the mysteries are not easy to solve as Ginger, Felicia and Boss have a couple of intricate cases to solve. With a flair for fashion, clear thinking, interrogation skills that match her husband's, Basil, Ginger solves both these mysteries in record time.I voluntarily reviewed an Lady Gold Investigates Volume 3 by Lee Strauss was another entertaining afternoon read for me.

    Time and againGinger Reed continues to garner acclaim for her sleuthing skills with her business, Lady Gold Investigations. The first case brings a well known film star who doesn't quite know where he's been. In the second case, Ginger learns a bit too much about Basil's favourite cricket player.These are short reads, just enough to keep fans going until the next full length novel. While it helps to know the backstories, these novellas are a good introduction to the Ginger Gold novels.

    Another two short mysteries that definitely does not disappoint! The Case of Missing Time is the first story and draws you in completely from the first page on! We see the incredible ingenuity of Ginger, the fun and assistant, sister-in-law Felicity and of course the smart adorable Boston Terrier Boss who seems to have a sixth sense about people! In this first case, a movie star appears disheveled at their office door looking for help. He has no idea how he got this way or where he was or what Another two short mysteries that definitely does not disappoint! The Case of Missing Time is the first story and draws you in completely from the first page on! We see the incredible ingenuity of Ginger, the fun and assistant, sister-in-law Felicity and of course the smart adorable Boston Terrier Boss who seems to have a sixth sense about people! In this first case, a movie star appears disheveled at their office door looking for help. He has no idea how he got this way or where he was or what happened to him as he is limping, soaked and so confused. Taking on this case leads Ginger, Felicity and Boss on a strange journey trying to unravel threads of the story until Basil is called in to help at the end once the mystery is unraveled. Then we have the second story of the Unlucky Cricketer. A famous professional player seems to have lost his bat or was it stolen? He keeps losing matches and while Basil and Ginger are watching one of his matches, things go wrong and he loses the match for his team with his seemingly inept play. That was the last straw, he decides he can no longer play until his bat is found and seeks out Basil and Ginger to as for Ginger investigate and find his bat. With lots of twists and turns we are taken on the journey with Ginger, Felicity and Boss! I was surprised by the ending. The author is adept at keeping you guessing right to the end and her Lady Gold Investigates series does that as well as her Lady Gold series and her spin-off series as well as all her other series. This is an author that you will love with each book you read! I received and ARC from the author but the opinions expressed here are strictly my own.

    I really enjoy the Lady Gold Investigates spin-off from the original series. Containing two short cases each, they are perfect for an evening read. In this volume Ginger Gold and her sister-in-law Felicia take on the cases of an actor who claims to be having bouts of amnesia and a cricketer who claims his lucky bat has been stolen.I received an arc of this book and voluntarily am providing a review.

It drew me in from the first sentence and had me guessing right the way through as the authors deliver a different type of tale, drawing on an interesting piece of history.

As always, the characters are delightful, and I’ve particularly enjoyed seeing more of and getting to know Felicia better in this series. She’s such great fun and, at last, is possibly growing up a bit. Maybe… The mystery characters are also, as always, a varied bunch with some of them being very likeable and some of them not. There are plenty of little humorous incidents dotted through the stories as well as some rather poignant moments. Well done Team Strauss on another successful volume of short stories. Maybe there’ll be more in the future?A review copy of this book was sent to me by the authors. All the above opinions are my own.

    Once again I had an enjoyable afternoon of reading, thanks to Lee (and her husband). I really enjoy the fact that there doesn't always have to be murder in order to have a good mystery. Lee comes up with plots that haven't been used in the past and that makes it even more great. I love reading a novel, but these short reads are great when you only have an hour or so and want to be reading! Thanks, Lee!
