A Charm of Powerful Trouble – Robert Bruce Stewart – Review

A Charm of Powerful Trouble (Harry Reese Mysteries) by Robert Bruce Stewart

Lovely entertaining Harry and Emmie Reese mystery!
This is another of Mr. Robert B. Stewart delicious books that I couldn’t let it down till I’ve finished it all.

Funny troubles started with the visit of Emmie’s relatives and her plan to surprise detective Harry for his anniversary with a fake murder. Then the actor Ernie Joy got shot dead. Chinamen are involved; Emmie disappears, then we find her in jail; another murder seems to be linked to the dead man; aunt Nell acts unusual, then marries; a mysterious Chinese girl plays servant in Harry’s house; a parrot talks many languages; an important manuscript was stolen; some strange events occur and secrets are revealed.

I recommend this amusing book to everyone and I very much appreciate the author’s great work. Thank you!

There are many quotes I’ve liked in this book. Here are some of them:
“…coincidences always lead to consequences.”
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
“The love of money is the root of all evil.”
“Cops don’t like cops from other jurisdictions playing games in their backyards.”
