    This is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery-thriller and anyone with an interest in the history of BC will find it engaging and full of detail. The characters have depth and Bannerman has created a world in which one is never quite sure the motives of much of the population and, true to a good murder/mystery, you are left guessing until the very end. The detail put in to making the setting as accurate as possible was also impressive. I could see the town in my mind. Bannerman's style is engaging and flowing, making for an excellent read. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in murder-mystery or historical fiction. I would also like to point out that it would definitely appeal to a wide age-range of readers. This should be in high school libraries. The main character is a teenage girl and written in such a way as to be believable and dynamic. Bannerman does a fantastic job of creating a very real, strong character that does not fall into the awful stereotypes of much writing aim... More > at teen girls (I'm looking at you Twilight). It is a wonderful book!< Less

    "Bucket of Blood" combines Canadian history (!) and gory murder into a great read. Visceral, fast-paced, and very descriptive, this novel is set in the Vancouver Island of 1898 and thrusts you into a chaotic town of migrant workers, miners, spiritualists, and opium dealers, where everyone seems to be keeping a secret or two. I loved the descriptions of the town because I grew up in Cumberland and so many of the old buildings and places mentioned in the book still exist - this book gives a good sense of place in a landscape that holds a lot of ghosts. The story has lots of twists and keeps you guessing. Plus, Lizzie is the sort of quirky, bold heroine I like. If you're a fan of Charles Todd or Laurie R. King, you'll love "Bucket of Blood".
