The genre is familiar--there is a mystery to be solved and it falls to her to do it, and you know she'll come through, but it's all the little side things that keep this book fascinating. I love her relationship with those around her, her humanity, her creativity and industry. All of these things give her dimension and bring her to life!
Move over, Sherlock! Miss Amelia has come to town.
The novels were written in the late 1890s. Modern novelists who cast their characters and plots in that time period try to do a good job characterizing the mind set of people at that time but one questions how accurate they may have been It is interesting to read a novel written by a woman who actually lived at that time and could accurately portray the states of mind that were prevalent during that period. For instance, Mrs. Butterworth as a woman of fine breeding would never allow emotion to show on her face and was proud of that fact.
The stories themselves are well plotted. Not only is there the main murder mystery plot but several sub plot mysteries to keep the reader guessing. I may have to seek out other novels by Ann Katherine Green as I know I will enjoy them as I did the novels in this collection
