A fast-moving action and quick read that hold your attention throughout the book as Erin O’Reilly and Rolf are working to solve 2 cases in the fourth book of this series. This is a good police procedural showing the work of a K-9 dog.
Two men bodies are found in the rocks in New York’s harbor. The Special Crime Unit was called to investigate the death. The men have been tortured and killed education style. Erin is visiting the Corner Pub when bullets and an explosion occur. As the investigation continues Erin is told to look into the death of a young girl found in a locked room that looks like suicide. Is a serial killer at work? Rolf is able to pinpoint the smile of the perfume. Will Erin end up like this girl?
Meanwhile, members of the Special Crime Unit discover that the killer is probably a German wanted by Interpol. Again Rolf is able to show Erin where the killer is to be found. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND of for a fast easy read.
I have not read this book before, but as it is vintage Mary Stewart, it did not disappoint. The background is set at Ashley Court, entail estate located in England. Ashley Court is like so many others in England that no preservation group is willing to assume responsibility for it. A portion has been set aside allowing the public to tour the estate. The family quarters are let out to a wealthy American. The family lives in a small cottage on land that does not entail. Since an Ashley married a gipsy woman who was later burned at stake as a witch. Members of the family have inherited telepathy known as the ‘Ashley sight’. Bryony has the ‘sight’ and has been communicating with her ‘Lover’ since childhood. Her father has died and the estate has passed to her cousins. Emory needs to break the trust as he needs the money to save his business. Bryony’s father died in Spain and his death is a mystery. The book has numerous twists and turns to hold your attention. I found it difficult to put down. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
I am grateful to the Meridian Library for a copy. This is the first book in The Counterfeit Lady historical series. It takes in the 1900s at the time of when the USA is preparing to enter World War I and women were demanding to vote. The protagonist is fully developed and across with her views. The story is told from her viewpoint. The other characters need more development. The descriptions set you in the area.
Elizabeth is a grifter aka con man. She is working with a couple of gritters and they have relieved a from a man of a large sum and its collapses and she is running for her life. She managed to hide with a group of suffragist and went with them when arrested to jail. This group of suffrage was sent to a workhouse. Before she realized it cared about what happened. Will Elizabeth escaped the thugs after her? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
The third book of the Farm to Fork series finds Angie and her restaurant staff helping to serve a meal at the River Vista mission. There, Annie and Hope, her trainer meet Daniel Monet, a visiting culinary instructor who is later found dead. Ian thought he recognized him under another name and leaves for England without telling Angie that he is going. Hope's fingerprints are found at the MURDER scene and she becomes a person of interest in the Monet's death. Sheriff Brown refuses to the Angie any information on his nephew, Ian and invited Angie to Sunday dinner at his home. The goat, and then that Angie adopted are still around and St. Bernard, Dom had almost reached his height and can reach items on the cabinets.
Felicity new boyfriend is running a homeless shelter in the area and expects her to be his assistant at all time causing problems at the County Seat restaurant. Hope might be arrested if no other suspect is located. I highly recommend this book and series.
Recipes are included.

I was delighted to see that the Ancestry Detective series was started. The series is set in Texas. Lucy Lancaster, a genealogist along with two friends have rent a flat in. Each has her own office. Lucy has been working with Austin billionaire, Gus Halloran researching his ancestry. She has found a daguerreotype photograph and a journal that proves his Great-great grandfather was murder in 1849 and even tell him who was the villain. While Lucy was informing the Halloran family, the information is shown on TV and accused Senator Daniel Applewhite that his Great-great Grandfather was the killer.
Senator Applewhite is running for reelection and his opponent is a Halloran.
Lucy feels she must look into what happened in 1849 and begins to trace the ancestry of the individuals involved. A friend of Lucy is MURDER and the daguerreotype is missing. The twists and turns that occur as Lucy begins tracing the individuals involved in the killing. Will Lucy find daguerreotype? I highly recommend this book.
