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.

    I, too, enjoy it when the chapters begin with information or quotes from the period that tie in with the plot. That, the subject matter, and your high recommendation will definitely put this on my TBR list. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a good one. I enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter too. Kind of a mini history/sociology lesson.
