But when her bohemian friends invite her to parade to support the suffragist movement, she meets some well-to-do Vassar graduates, one of whom hires her to investigate her husband, whom she worries is supporting a mistress. But then, suddenly, women in the group start to sicken and die, so Molly takes on that investigation, too.
Like the previous novels, this book combines historical background about New York in this era with interesting characters and a sharp, well paced plot. As an ex-New Yorker, I find the setting entertaining, especially when Molly visits places I've been to, but the books would be great reads without any New York connections. Molly is a fine example of the path of many women in that era, striving to become more self-reliant; she's a great role model.
I would recommend reading these novels in order to get a smooth understanding and background of what happened previously to the main character.
"Murphy's Law" is the first novel in this suspenseful series! ENJOY!
A couple of these new, well-educated associates of Molly, however, need Molly's services as a private detective, as one believes that her husband is cheating on her, while the other believes that her Uncle is cheating her of an inheritance. So, Molly is, once again, up to her eyeballs in adventure and danger. When one of her clients dies, perhaps from influenza, but perhaps not, Molly goes all out to right what may have gone wrong.
As always, the author skillfully captures the feel of a bygone era, and the story is rife with period detail and highly atmospheric. This is a well-written book with an intriguing plot and characters that will fully engage the reader. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mystery is intriguing, it is the framework around which the characters evolve. Those who enjoy the historical cozy mystery genre will definitely enjoy this entertaining series.
First is Emily, a young woman left to fend for herself after her miserly uncle kicked her out. Emily wants to know more about her dead parents. Then Fanny hires Molly to prove her husband is cheating on her. Things are progressing on both cases when someone dies. Was it a bad case of the flu or was it murder?
As always, this book was a great trip back in time. The set up is steeped in history. When the cases start, the book picks up. I actually found both of them quite interesting and puzzling.
Molly has really grown as a detective, and that is evident here as she actually pulls off solving both cases. Her growing ability is actually quite fun to watch. And she continues to be an interesting character I love to spend time around.
The cases her also provide Molly a good chance to think about her future as the potential wife of Captain Daniel Sullivan. As always, I was both hot and cold to him, but I seem to soften with every book.
These books aren't typical mysteries but as much about life a century ago as the case at hand. And I love them for it. If you want a glimpse of another time and place, pick up this series today.
Set in the early 1900's, Molly owns her own private detective agency, of which she is the sole employee. This in itself is rare for that time period, as most women were raised to marry well and have a lot of children, and encouraged to stay at home to raise them.
Molly is very independent, curious and maddening to her police detective fiance, Daniel Sullivan. She puts herself in harm's way more than once in order to solve her cases. He can't resist her, though, as she makes friends easily and has a heart of gold.
I just adore Molly, and count myself blessed by the women that have gone before us, as Molly and her friends do not even have the right to vote yet. An education is considered frivolous, and a woman alone is considered suspicious.
This series is one that just keeps getting better and better, and is a quick, delightful read. Get ready for some surprising twists, and some good news for Molly. I can't wait for the next one!
