THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
The first book in the Maine Murder series. The author also writes under the name, Lea Wait which I have always enjoyed. This book did not disappoint in fact, I feel it is one of best I have recently read. The MC did put herself in danger. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. Each chapter is opened by a comment on household, servants, and ethics of 1800-90. I did enjoy this information.
