… and a terrific series. I just read all 6 books over the weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed them. I loved the main characters so much that I finished one and started the next immediately. (And yet I still got in a football game, softball game, harvest fair, ferrying the kids around, two visits to my dad and a birthday party for a friend! phew!) I liked the characters even more as the series progressed.
This is a murder mystery series set in 19th century Boston called the Nell Sweeney Historical Mysteries. (And they were just re-released as e-books, for less than $3 each.) She is a governess to one of Boston’s elite families, and solves murders with the help of Dr. Will Hewitt. Add in a murky past, secrets and a little romance, and there you have it. Still Life with Murder is the first book. If you do decide to read them, definitely read them in order – the relationship between the characters develops in each one. Now I’m just sad that I’m done.
Oh, and a little tip. Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download books with a Kindle app to your computer, ipad, iphone, Blackberry … there are a whole list of devices you can read a Kindle book on at the Amazon Kindle page.
Finally, thanks for all the sparkly pumpkin love – you girls are the sweetest!
Have a great week!
