Good To Know

In our exclusive interview with Albert, she revealed some fun facts about herself:

"My first job was selling ladies' undies at Woolworth's for 35 cents an hour in Danville, Illinois."

I learned to garden from my mother, who thought that the most important thing you did every spring was to plant the potatoes. I learned to read from my father, who never planted a potato in his life. Somehow, I managed to create a life and make a living between these two extremes. Happily, I haven't had to go back to selling undies. Not yet, anyway."

"I love living in the country with Bill, two black Labs, and a black cat. I'd rather read a book or write one than do just about anything else in the world, except maybe for gardening and sitting in a bathtub full of hot, hot water and bubbles. Or knitting, spinning, weaving, dyeing -- I'm a fiber-arts fanatic."

"You can find out what I'm doing today (or what I did yesterday) by checking out my web log, at susanalbert.typepad.com/lifescapes (but there's no web cam, so don't look for me in the bathtub)."

    Nice Victorian Murder Mystery

    This is the second book of the series of Sir Charles Sheridan and Kate Ardleigh that takes place in Victorian England. Skillfully woven into the stories of murder and aristocratic mayhem is the burgeoning Industrial Revolution and the change it has on life in England. Throw in the growing love story between the two main characters and snippets of life in the small towns in the English countryside and you have the makings of a fine series.

    Gallows Green takes up the story after the death of Kate's Aunts, leaving her the house and property. Kate begins to befriend the townspeople, her servants and the aristocrats around her. Her secret as a writer of Penny Dreadfuls is still safe and she uses the misfortunes of those around her to incorporate in her writing and she investigates the latest murder somewhat to the chagrin of Sir Charles, himself an amateur CSI type criminologist.

    This is an easy read, good for a lazy summer day. The author paints a pretty picture of Victorian England and you can feel yourself drawn into stories because you know the history they are living at the time. Murders get solved in a genteel fashion. I am looking forward to the next pairing of these two main characters.

    Well written

    If you like a good murder mystery without a lot of gore with likeable characters this series is for you. I enjoy a good old fashion mystery where the who dun it is solved by common sense. The settings are rich, the characters are real and the history/realism adds to the story line. I enjoyed the book so much I purchased the next in the series. Death at Daisy's a Folly. I was already a fan of Susan Witting Albert. Writing with hubby under this pseudonym changes nothing.

    If you are stuck on Sherlock Holmes. . . .

    If you like Sherlock Holmes, this has some pleasant similarities. At moments goes too much toward the romantic style, but overall keeps one interested in the plot. I like the historical background, very interesting.
