I didn't find this one to be as engaging as the first. It was a bit lackluster at times. I never felt hooked by the plot to the point that I couldn't put the book down. A decent effort, but not 100%

This was a good continuation of the Louisa Mae Alcott series. I am looking forward to more from Ms. Maclean.

"Louisa and the Country Bachelor" proved to be a very engaging and wholly engrossing read. I thought that Anna Maclean had done a truly wonderful job of capturing Louisa May Alcott's voice and persona. Louisa May Aloctt comes across as an intelligent, warm, charming and very fascinating character, definitely inspired in me the desire to read Alcott's biography. Similarly, I also enjoyed the loving manner in which portrayed the entire Alcott family and Sylvia Shattuck. I particualrly liked the vividly colourful manner in which the author captured the countryside surrounding Walpole -- she definitely made the place seem very beautiful and vital. Also nicely done was the manner in which she allowed for the suspense to mount gradually and smoothly, so that the pace was not uneven or jarringly awkward. So that all in all, I'd say that "Louisa and the Country Bachelor" was a very well crafted, smoothly paced mystery novel, that was intriguing and engrossing, and that also possessed an easy and completely accessible prose style. In other words: a truly good and worthwhile read.
