A Bucket of Ashes: A Gilded Age Mystery

( 68 )

Overview

From the Mary Higgins Clark Award nominee-a new Gilded Age mystery.

Nell's reputation as a model governess is threatened by a secret from her past-and the possibility that she might be carrying Will Hewitt's child. But these problems pale with what she learns: that the body of her only remaining brother has been discovered- and that he was wanted for murder.

    Excellent Historical Mystery Series

    Nell Sweeney is a girl with a past that must remain hidden. Her strong sense of values and willingness to risk herself to help others make her a likeable heroine. These six novels are a wonderful window into Victorian Boston, and how the people of that era faced problems similar to today's issues - like high unemployment, discrimination, crime and drug abuse. Very enjoyable and unexpected. Highly recommended!

    a heartwarming mystery

    As a child Nell Sweeney lived in the poor house and lost her family to disease and when she got out she made a living working as a pickpocket. Now she has a respectable job working for the wealthy Hewitts as a governess to their adopted daughter Grace. Only she and the family know that Grace is Will Hewitt¿s biological child, born on the wrong side of the blanket. He is unable to care for her because of his opiate and gambling addictions.--------------------------- - When the family goes to Cape Cod for the summer Nell runs into her ex-lover Dr. Greaves who tells her that her brother was murdered after hiding out in a shed that caught fire. He was wanted for the murder of Susannah Cunningham a woman who he worked for as a gardener. Besides needing a divorce because her abusive husband is in prison and will remain so for thirty years, and she is carrying Will¿s baby, Nell with the help of Will and Dr. Greaves investigate the death of James because an autopsy shows he was knifed and did not die from smoke inhalation.---------------- P.B. Ryan writes a heartwarming mystery that capture the ambivalence of the rich on the east coast five years after the civil war ended. The protagonist leads a troubled life but she rises above her upbringing to become a solid citizen who loves the responsibility of caring for her young charge. Will comes back from France where he was applying his medical skills and is there for Nell when she needs him most. Readers will care about him because he feels he is unworthy to love someone as pure as Nell.----------------- Harriet Klausner

    Wonderful, can't wait for more.

    I got hooked on the first P. B. Ryan book of the series, and learned about smoking Opium than I ever wanted to know.

    Historical mysteries are my genre and these are very well written.

    Great series

    I read all six books in the series, they are more like short stories but really good stories. Interesting characters, plots, history, and satisfying endings make for light entertainment.

    I've read all the books in this series (in order), and my bigges

    I've read all the books in this series (in order), and my biggest complaint is that there are no more to read. I really came to care about the characters and forced myself to read slowly to make this book last longer.

    Excellent series-Nell Sweeney Historical Mysteries

    This is a really good ending to a wonderful series. I read Book #1 free and promptly purchased the other five. Really liked all the characters, the storyline, the mystery solving, the history & actual people featured from the post civil war time period. Well written & very touching.

    Great read

    Another great read in this series. Once again, The 'who done it' came as a total surprise!!! This series has been one of the most enjoyable 'who done it' series I have read. It won't disappoint. This deserves five stars, but I only gave four due to a few missed errors not corrected when edited.

    Sad it's over........

    I loved Miss Sweeney and Will from the beginning. The storyline felt a little rushed but all in all I'm pleased they got their Happy Ending, it was well deserved. I would love to see more books with them as a husband and wife duo.......

    The last one in the series. Highly recommend it!

    This last book did not disappoint. It is true that everything was wrapped up quickly, but I liked that. Check out this series starting with the first book. They are in sequence and the characters keep developing in each book.

    A MUST Read!

    If you aren't reading Pat Ryan's books, you should be! If you are - good on ya! This is a wonderful way to end this series (and I personally hope that she is going to bring these characters back for more, because I've become very fond of them!). The world they inhabit is finely drawn, and the characters themselves are multi-dimensional and "dense" with layers of emotion, nuance, and personality. I'm encouraging all my friends to read the books in this series.
