Murder on St Nicholas Avenue

 Murder on St Nicholas Avenue
by Victoria Thompson


This is the first “Gas Light” mystery I have read and it was great. The setting is in the early 1900’s New York City. I found the characters and the setting very interesting and the descriptive writing style of Ms. Thompson just pulls you into the story. Great Read.

Only Daughter

Only Daughter 

by Anna Snoekstra (Goodreads Author) 


Loved this book, grabs you right from the start. She worked back and forth between past and present but dated chapters. Great characters, fast paced and it gets even better towards the end, which surprised the heck out of me. I couldn't put it down. I won this book from Goodreads.
