Bowen has crafted another fine mystery here, filled with three, perhaps intertwined investigations, and with charming, believable characters.
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!
While Molly is pleased to have so much work to pay her bills, she also can't juggle it all. So she approaches Daniel, a wrongfully suspended police captain, about helping her. But that potential partnership seems to only cause more friction in their relationship. Can the two find a way to work together and successfully solve all these cases?
When done right, this series is as much about the historical as it is about the mystery. Here, it is done well. Occasionally, the plot appears to wander, but every one of those details becomes an important part of the story. There is still plenty of coincidence here, but Molly is also able to make a few deductions herself. The cases are juggled well, and one plot or the other was always moving forward.
What I found most interesting is the relationship between Molly and Daniel. I have never really liked him, but here I couldn't decide whose side I was on. One minute, I was mad at him, but a few pages later I couldn't believe that Molly could be so childish. I'm still not sure where I want their relationship to go, but I am more open to the possibilities then I used to be.
This series uses mystery to entertain and give us a glimpse into life 100 years ago. And you'll enjoy every minute of this time machine.
Molly is trying to make it as a private detective with her own agency and is apparently finally succeeding in a man's world as for once she has more work that she can handle. She engages the assistance of her suitor, Captain Daniel Sullivan of the New York City Police Department, who is currently but wrongfully on suspension. The myriad of cases she is handling makes Daniel gain a new appreciation for Molly professionally, but as always, Molly finds herself in situations that can spell life or death for her.
As with all cozy mysteries, the mystery is secondary to the evolvement of the recurring characters and the ordinary discourse of life that binds them. As always, the dialogue moves the plot along at a brisk pace, and the book is peppered with a host of interesting, quirky characters that entertain the reader. This is a highly addictive series that makes the reader eagerly await the author's next book.
