    1. A really good murder mystery A dead prostitute leaves a suffragette society most of her fortune The society sends a representative to find out why and she, in turn, becomes intrigued by the dead woman and seeks to discover the truth about her death I was really impressed by the historical accuracy most writers are content to get the clothes and vehicles right, but Linscott concerns herself with the attitudes and unwritten politics of the time as well.

    2. Have long wanted to read this series but my reaction to book 1 is just, meh At times it was involving but other times it felt superficial with no strong sense of the period The author did keep me guessing as to the perp I thought I knew, then I was convinced I was wrong, then gotcha So I ll giver her points for that The ending felt abrupt with little official or personal closure Nell and the Suffrage movement could be interesting but this volume did not make me want to run out and read the rest [...]

    3. I didn t think this was quite as good as the later books in the series that I began with but definitely well worth going back for Nell has just returned from a spell in Holloway for chucking a brick through the window of 10 Downing Street I d guess that that is covered in another book when Mrs Pankhurst sends her off to investigate a legacy of fifty thousand pounds that has been left to the Women s Social and Political Union aka the suffragettes The money has been left to them by a high class pr [...]

    4. Sister Beneath the Sheets, is the first book in the Nell Bray mystery series by Gillian Linscott Linscott is currently writing as Caro Peacock The Nell Bray books were written in the 1990 s, so I am a bit late coming to them But what I love when I stumble upon a new to me author is to find a juicy back list.Nell Bray is a front line suffragette, an intelligent no nonsense solider in the cause for woman s rights Having just been released from a stint in Holloway prison, Nell is asked to travel to [...]

    5. This is one of those rare occasions where I m gonna give the book stars than it may deserve I love the concept, location, and time that I will have to read a second book from the series to make a complete decision I hope this books suffers from first in the series syndrome Too much story and character building and not enough work on the plot makes it a bit slow and sadly a common occurrence in mystery series, especially in the cozies Still it s not every day you get a prostitute leaving all her [...]

    6. Historical mystery, in which Nell Bray, a suffragette, investigates the mysterious death of a courtesan who has left her fortune to the movement This was less engaging to me as a whodunit than as a period piece I loved Nell s wry narrative voice, especially the way her throwing arm would twitch whenever she saw male chauvinists Possible useful backstory note when the novel begins, Nell has just finished a short stint in Holloway after throwing a brick at 10 Downing Street.

    7. Nell Bray, Edwardian suffragette, investigates the suspicious suicide of a high class escort Page turning mystery Easy read.
