Overview

Tell Me, Pretty Maiden by Rhys Bowen

From the author of In Farleigh Field...

It’s wintertime in New York, and for the first time since Irish immigrant Molly Murphy started her early-twentieth-century detective agency, she is completely snowed in with work. While she’s proving to be quite the entrepreneur and is very much in demand by some of Broadway’s brightest stars and Fifth Avenue’s richest families, she has to grudgingly admit that if she’s going to work more than one case at a time, then she’s going to need some help. Molly’s beau, the recently and wrongly suspended police captain Daniel Sullivan, would make an ideal associate, but before they can agree on the terms of his employment, they stumble upon a young woman lying unconscious in the middle of a snow-covered Central Park. When the woman wakes up, she is disorientated and has and lost her ability to speak. The authorities are about to pack her off to an insane asylum when Molly can’t help but step in and take on yet another case.

Lively and colorful, full of absorbing historical detail and delightful characters, Tell Me, Pretty Maiden is another gem in Rhys Bowen’s New York Times bestselling series.

Compared to some of the other offerings by Rhys Bowen, I felt that this book fell short. Or more correctly, fell long. By trying to cram too many plot elements into the novel, the pace became choppy. Then loose ends had to be tied up. This contributed to my having a disconnect with the heroine on and off through the book. In her Molly books, Ms. Bowen always incorporates some wonderful details that re-create old New York. But her characters in this novel seem to flit to New Haven and back to the City far too quickly to be possible. For those readers who know the area, this stretch of the truth contributes to further disconnect. Overall, not her best book.

Not her best but then I'm just coming off 12 Clues of Christmas which IMHO, is stellar. One of my fave Christmas reads.
