    1. This book is hard to rate The premise of the story and general storyline were interesting and kept me involved, but there were several aspects to the story that were a bit bothersome. First and foremost, the ending was rather abrupt and unsatisfying! Next, the author included some rather unnecessary sexual behaviors by and between characters not graphic or distasteful, but just rather superfluous to the story in my opinion. Finally, the "murders" were SO overly gruesome and debasing -- I wondere [...]


    2. This novel was difficult for me to review, as I have two sides to my opinions on it.One one hand, the writing was at times gripping, the author had a good, believable voice, and at times I was very into the storyline. But then the story would rely on yet another old cliche, and ruin things for me. And I'm not the only female reader who seems to have felt this, either. “Winter at Death’s Hotel” by Kenneth Cameron seems to be lacking in Sense and Logic, at times.What Mr Cameron has done with [...]


    3. In the year 1896, while Arthur Conan Doyle is on a book tour of American his wife becomes involved in a series of unexplained murders. Cameron creates an interesting picture of New York in the late nineteenth century & the story moves along at a reasonable pace. Amidst the brutal murders there are some good moments of humour, especially in Doyle's letters to his wife in which he complains the only people coming to see him on tour are middle aged women who only want to hear him talk about She [...]


    4. This was one of those books that was going good until the end. The ending just ruined it for me. They knew who did and they got away. Plus the ending was very abrupt.


    5. In 1896 celebrated author Arthur Conan Doyle arrives in New York with his wife Louisa on the first stage of a book tour. Following an inconvenient injury to her ankle Louisa cannot travel with her husband and must stay behind in the Brittanic Hotel with her maid. A series of gruesome Jack The Ripper-style murders are terrorising the city, and Louise becomes involved in the search for the killer when she realises she can identify one of the victims.I knew a little bit about Conan Doyle before I r [...]


    6. I did love this book. The story, characters and setting were well drawn and very powerful. The heroine, Louisa, is the wife of Sir Arthur Canon Doyle, who is left behind in a hotel in New York after she sprains her ankle and is unable to join her husband on his book tour. Louisa is a multifaceted and truly heroic character. Kenneth Cameron did a fabulous job of writing a woman, the struggles of women of that time and capturing the struggle of curious and agile mind struggling against constraints [...]


    7. A rollicking good read that kept my attention and just kept getting better. Hard to imagine a man could write so knowingly from a woman's point of view. After finishing the story, my curiosity was peaked about the real-life version of the protagonist, Lousia Hawkins Doyle, first wife of the famous author of the Sherlock Holmes tales. The husband certainly came across as something of a self-absorbed lout, and it was hardly surprising to learn that in real life, Louisa was not well treated by him [...]


    8. I don't read a lot of mysteries anymore- I used to be all about a good mystery and would read them like they were going out of style. Somewhere along the line, I just stopped picking them up. Winter at Death's Hotel was a book that made me question why I ever stopped devouring mysteries. When Winter at Death's Hotel came across my mailbox, I was skeptical at first. I read some Sherlock Holmes forever ago (and don't remember it much, honestly) and have watched both Elementary and Sherlock on and [...]


    9. UnevenMy feelings about this book changed many times over the course of reading it. At times it was interesting, at times it dragged, at times it was a thrill ride, and at one point overly graphic and violent. I enjoy historical fiction and the author did a good job with scene and character development. Briefly, this is the story of Arthur Conan Doyle's wife Louisa and their first trip to NYC. She becomes interested and embroiled in the case of a serial killer. There is a secondary story of poli [...]


    10. Since reading the excellent Oscar Wilde stories by Gyles Brandreth, I became fascinated at the idea of famous people such as Oscar Wilde being heroes within their own mystery novels, therefore when I saw “Winter at Death’s Hotel” starred Louisa Conan Doyle, it was a must read. I found this story extremely gruesome, graphic and gross – this was not necessarily a bad thing, as the very themes the story explores require it to be hard hitting and vulgar on the eye in order to yield the great [...]


    11. It is 1896 and the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, has arrived in New York to start a lecture tour. With him is his wife, Louisa. They stay at an upmarket hotel, but just as they are about to check out to start their journey around the eastern states, Louisa trips up and badly sprains her ankle, making it impossible for her to accompany her husband. Reluctantly, he goes on without her.Really enjoyed thisexcellent observations on the culture clash between upper class British and t [...]


    12. loved this.Arthur Conan Doyle are in New York as Arthur is on a lecture tour of the States. Louisa is forced to stay in New York after a fall. she reads about a horrific murder and recognises the victim. but when she reports to the police they threaten her. the only person who believes her is a newspaper reporter as more deaths occur they must work together to find the killer. first book i've read by this author but it won't be my last.


    13. Very good book all the way through to the last chapter I really didn't like the ending. We should all write to him and tell him to change the ending! If he did I would give it more stars. I had such hopes for this book, I love murder mysteries in the Victorian era, and that it had a well known person as one of the characters was at first excitingen a let down.


    14. Contains spoilers“Winter at Death’s Hotel” by Kenneth Cameron is only good for one thing: tear out each page and use it to wrap up your soiled sanitary towels or tampons, ladies, before disposing of both! Writers of both sexes: this book is a perfect example of how NOT TO WRITE a novel in the 21st century. Interestingly, on the hard cover copy I borrowed from my local library there is no “blurb” summarising or even hinting at the plot; instead, we are told on the outer sleeve that auth [...]


    15. What a great read! Taking place in the 1800's of New York, it is a mystery that will keep you turning the pages. It was also fun to read because the women of the 1800's were to be much like the children "seen, but not heard." No opinions, no money of their own, total dependence on their men. NOT in this book! Louisa Doyle bucks the entire system, much to the reader's entertainment. The storyline is Jack the Ripperish and keeps the reader guessing who the murderer is or is not. This reader must s [...]


    16. Great murder mystery and commentary on women's rights. Even being written by a man, he very closely captured how a woman would behave.


    17. At a time when adaptations of Sherlock Holmes appear to be almost everywhere – in our cinemas, on our TV screens and on our book shelves – Winter at Death’s Hotel by Kenneth Cameron adds something a little different to the trend. In this novel, Arthur Conan Doyle has arrived in New York City in 1896 at the start of his first publicity tour around America for his Sherlock Holmes stories. During his stay at the proud and esteemed Britannic Hotel, a woman is found murdered, most brutally, in [...]


    18. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle arrives on the island of Manhattan with his wife, Louisa. There for a book tour, the loving couple check into the Britannic Hotel, a building that boasts the thickest walls and an added bonus of soundproof rooms. As their room is prepared, Louisa glimpses a man and young woman arm in arm, noting their happiness.The next day, the papers arrive, and a gory murder is splashed across the front pages. The victim? The same woman Louisa saw in the lobby of the Britannic the day b [...]


    19. Winter at Deaths Hotel (From back of book)New York, January 1896. Arthur Conan Doyle, the renowned creator of Sherlock Holmes, arrives at the Britannic Hotel with his wife, Louisa, ready to begin his first American tour. While he prepares his lectures, Louisa becomes mesmerised by this brash, vibrant, dangerous city, especially when a woman's brutally butchered corpse is found in a Bowery alley and Louisa is convinced from the artist's sketch in the paper that she'd seen the victim at the hotel. [...]


    20. This is not normally a book that I would find myself picking up to read. Every so often I do find myself longing for a good mystery/thriller that is a little darker, but not as often as I pick up light, fluffy books to read. I found it interesting that this was a male author writing from a female’s point of view, but I will get to that down below. This story focuses around the character of Louisa, Arthur Conan Doyle’s wife. If you are unfamilar with Arthur Conan Doyle, he is the man that wro [...]


    21. Overall, the mystery and the atmosphere of this book was great. I loved ACD's wife being the star. But I had quite a few issues with it. Warning for some minor spoilers!First is the fact that the book drags quite a bit a times. 60 page chapters usually have lots of unimportant and uninteresting (to me at least) description.Secondly, this book (or at least this copy) is pretty poorly edited. At one point a character "licked his hips" which sounds pretty impressive. More irritatingly is the fact t [...]


    22. This book was an odd one, I found the plot & style gripping, I loved the main character, but there were also some issues that turned it from a 5* read to a 4*.I bought the audiobook months and months ago & it remained unread & largely forgotten in the depths of my library. I don't think I'd have bought it if I'd taken a closer look at the cover (emblazoned with 'A Louisa Conan-Doyle Mystery') or if I'd read the synopsis, which I imagine must have mentioned the heroine's real life cou [...]


    23. In January 1896 the author of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, comes to New York with his wife, Louisa for an American tour. While staying at The New Britannic Louisa falls and sprains her ankle, making her stay behind while Arthur continues on his tour. When a woman turns up mutilated in Bowery, Louisa recognizes her from a sketch in the paper as a woman she saw in the hotel lobby. Louisa quickly becomes obsessed with the woman’s horrible death and starts putting together clues of murder. [...]


    24. It is January 1896 and Arthur Conan Doyle arrives with his wife Louisa at the Britannic Hotel in New York. While he plans for his first American tour, Louisa becomes entranced with the vibrant metropolis. As they are leaving on a train for the start of the tour, Louisa trips and badly injures her ankle and cannot make the trip with Arthur. She is invalided in her suite with her maid Ethel. She badly bruised her face during the fall and takes all her meals in her room. One day reading the daily p [...]


    25. January 1896, Arthur Conan Doyle, accompanied by his wife Louisa, arrive at the New Britannic Hotel in New York City to start his U.S. lecture tour. Louisa sees a striking woman pass through the lobby. When the body of a woman murdered and mutilated is found in the Bowery, her sketch appears in a newspaper and Louisa is convinced it is the same woman she saw in the lobby. Arthur disregards Louisa's belief. As they prepare to leave for the train to begin the tour, Louisa falls and seriously sprai [...]


    26. The story line was pretty good. Early 19th century setting in New York, which was pretty cool. It allowed me to imagine how New York looked in it's early stages of life. It seems like there was always hustle and bustle, no matter the time. A famous London author and his wife travel to the States for a book tour. Their first stop is New York. During their stay a murder is committed not far from the hotel. Louisa, being the good wife as well as wanting to explore a little, decides to procure a new [...]


    27. Arthur Conan Doyle is still very well known for his Sherlock Holmes books. "Winter at Death's Hotel" takes place during Doyle's first American tour. He brings along his wife and when she hurts her ankle, she's forced to stay behind although it seems adventure and intrigue stay with her in NYC. This gritty historical-fiction thriller is filled with mystery and will excite fans of Doyle's books who want to know more about Doyle's family life.I was intrigued that this story focused on Louisa, Arthu [...]

Louisa recognizes the murdered and mutilated body of a young woman she had seen in the hotel and so the story beginsA gripping tale of murder,ma [...]


    29. I didn't see the point in making the protagonist the wife of Arthur Conan Doyle when it could have been any woman whose husband had a reason to travel, especially as the whole Sherlock connection is but fleeting in the main.Who edited this? So many times, Alexander Newcome was written as Arthur Newcome - once even with both names on the same page!There was so many sexist and racist comments just splurged across the narrative, which were opinions of characters but still galling. I get it, it's th [...]


    30. Mrs. Arthur Conan Doyle makes a very interesting protagonist. In a time when men were always the center characters in life, Louisa Doyle gradually steps up to stand for the women who have been murdered most foully in this tale set in New York City about 1893.Arthur Conan Doyle is off on a lecture tour of the America and has left his wife to recuperate from a sprained ankle in the New Britannica Hotel. At first NYC is exciting, daring, and a little scary, the people seem a bit rude but most mean [...]
