Publisher's Summary

Laurie R. King takes listeners way back in her best-selling series with this audiobook short story, as Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes embark upon the riskiest adventure of their partnership: their wedding.

Though she cannot entirely discount the effects of the head injuries they were both suffering at the time, Mary Russell is delighted by Sherlock Holmes' proposal of marriage. After all, they have become partners in crime, and she has recently come into her inheritance: What remains but to confirm the union with her mentor-turned-partner with the piece of paper?

Russell's pragmatic side tells her to head straight to the registry office - until Holmes surprises her with a sentimental wish to be married in the chapel of his ancestral manor. There's just the small issue of ownership: The house is not exactly his, and he is most definitely not welcome there. Of course, such obstacles have never deterred Sherlock Holmes before, and they certainly won't keep him from concocting an elaborate scheme to evade angry dogs and armed butlers - all in the name of wedded bliss.

    "a quick adventure"

    I loved this sweet short! Full of fun, but true to the L.R.K. characters I've come to love. As always, J. S. does a fabulous job bringing the characters to life.

    "A Fine Addition"

    A very nice little nugget of Russel/Holmes goodness; well worth the modest cost. And Jenny Stirling does her usual excellent job of bringing Mary to life.

    "Extraordinary Beginning well fitting!"

    Yes finally! The extremely fitting, well written, well read, companion novel. It bridges the gap, the missing piece of the puzzle, of Sherlock and Mary.

    Story
    "A lovely little tale"

    That fills in some of the missing pieces in the early Holmes-Russell marriage. as usual Jenny Sterling's rich voice has added to the mix, and the melange of characters is delightful. More insight into Mrs Hudson and Mycroft, too.

    My only complaint, as usual with a Holmes-Russell tale is that it ends too soon

    "Frosting without cake"

    Needed more. I love these stories but this one left out the story. The princess got married. Okay. No romance. No danger.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable with a surprise ending"

    I'm so Glad Laurie R. King has decided to write these short stories to fill in some blanks of the stories that we love. This one is almost sweet!! Not sugary, still in the same style as the longer novels.

    "Good short story for Russell - Holmes books fans"

    Fun story that fills in a gap in Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes relationship. Even a bit romantic. A little heavy on ominous clues about Mrs Hudson, I think.
    The reading is as always just right.

    Story
    "A Bit of Backstory"
    What made the experience of listening to The Marriage of Mary Russell the most enjoyable?

    I often listen as I work in the garden, but I found myself listeninf and not gardening. This story filled in some of the early history.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Marriage of Mary Russell?

    The scene in the crypt after the ceremony.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The same - the crypt after the ceremony.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No a laugh of cry moment but knowing the lengths that the legendary detective would go to make his future bride happy.
