This book was a surprise for me however, I prefer books with longer and more interesting stories then just six chapters

A very good short story. Molly uses very basic produces to solve this mystery.

Well-written with cohesive plot and believable characters. Mystery a little too easily solved.

This is a really quick short story. Molly, who is recently married and not supposed to be detecting any longer, befriends a woman who thinks she is losing her mind. Molly quickly does some deducing and figures out the problem and does not even get a dressing down from her new husband Daniel Sullivan, New York City Police detective. Although it took me 3 sittings to read, if I'd chosen better times I could easily have read in one sitting.

As usual, the very gifted Rhys Bowen has produced another page turner with her new e-book. This book spans the time between the last Molly Murphy book, 'Hush Now, Don't You Cry' and the next in the series, 'In the Family Way', due out later this year. This was a delightful, quick read that I couldn't put down from the minute I turned my computer on. Don't hesitate to purchase this one! It's well worth it!
