Review: The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #10) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure Of The Noble Bachelor (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #10)The Adventure Of The Noble Bachelor by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor’ is the tenth short story of the twelve which make up the novel, ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’.
The story entails the bride of Lord Robert St. Simon disappearing on the day of their marriage. She attends (and participates in) the wedding, but disappears from the reception. Sherlock Holmes must deduct whether it was a murder, or maybe something else.
This short story reminded me of one other in ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’. It was identical in concept with a gender reversal being the most significant change.
However, due to its romantic aspects and my sympathising with Lord St. Simon, the noble bachelor, I couldn’t give the short less than a four star as it kept me intrigued all the way through.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing a wonderful short story!
