The plucky siblings Robert and Lily may live in Grace & Favor Cottage, on the Hudson, in 1933, but they must work to keep it. A local woman has turned her own home into a nursing home, and both Robert and Lily are hired to replace a sick nurse. When a difficult and crabby inmate is murdered only days from his expected natural death, the siblings join forces with the local police to try to solve the case. While this installment lacks some of the energy and plotting of earlier whodunits in this series, it is rich in period color: the inauguration of FDR and his first Fireside Chat, the repeal of Prohibition, and a homey subplot chronicling the installation of a dumbwaiter in the three-storied nursing home. A solid entry in a series that effectively merges the historical mystery with the village cozy. GraceAnne DeCandido

The series is set in New York state during the Depression. In this one it is March of 1933, and the incidental history facts check out. The town sheriff is tasked with solving a murder of a terminally ill man in a care home where the main protagonists are temporarily working. He is also helping out a neighboring department with some unusual issues. There are twists and surprises in the investigation as well as some interesting things at the care home. A short but very interesting story!
