I decided to read this book as I enjoy the second book of the series so much. The Louise Faulk series is set in the early 1900’s before America entered the first world war and shortly after the Titanic had collapse in the Ocean. Louise had come to New York City to rebuild her life. With aid of another Aunt she has found work at a book publisher as a secretary. She is rooming with a friend she meet at girls club. Returning one night they find her roommate’s friend dead wearing Callies clothes in their apartment. Louise is unhappy with the police actions and sets about solving the murder.

The description of the time will place you in the City. It is accurate of a life of single girl living alone at that time. I have childhood memories the 5 & 10¢ stories of the 1900’s and the attitudes of about single girls who had the same misfortune that Louise experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.

    I used to love to go to the 5 & 10 cent stores. We used to call it the “dime” store. It was a Woolworth’s. I saw one back in 2012 when we visited Argentina. What a surprise!

    • The book talks about the Woolworth’s building in New York
      City. Boise had all three of the dime. I believe Newberry was the last one to close in Boise and one I went to most often.
