(The tenth book in the Molly Murphy series)

Nov 17, 2013

As usual Molly is up to her eyeballs in solving mysteries--even after she has promised her new husband, Daniel, that she will stop her detective work. However, their honeymoon starts with Daniel contracting pneumonia, so who else will find out about the secrets of the family in whose cottage they are staying? The story starts with Molly and Daniel caught in a huge rainstorm, spending the night in a stable for lack of other shelter, and a sighting of a ghost in a tower window. Since the local constable doesn't realize that two deaths are murder, what else can Molly do, but find out what's going on? I love the period details. Rhys Bowen does great research.

I enjoy learning about early New York City. This particular history lesson about the Chinese wasn't my favorite but the rest of the story was great!

With each book in this series, we learn more about New York in those times.

One of the best.

This story is filled with brides and brides-to-be, all of whom have complications to the relationship. Will Molly remain alive long enough for her own wedding, or will it be called off?
