"OK" Book But "Problematic"

Our neighborhood book group, the Mystery Book Club, read Sherlockian for a meeting just this week. We found the format (1900 events versus 2010 events in the ensuing chapters) choppy, to say the least. One of our members gave up and just read all the chapters pertaining to the 1900-1901 events, then went back and read all the events from modern times. We saw artificiality in the sudden bloom of romance between Harold and Sarah, and the concept that someone would commit suicide for the purpose of provoking a reaction/scandal from among Arthur Conan Doyle fans at their convention in the Algonquin in New York.
