New York at the Turn of the Century

Very entertaining mystery depicting life in New York among the rich and famous. The mystery of the "killer" did not reveal itself too early to keep the book entertaining until the end.

A Little Spice, Please!

Sweetness is nice, but it needs a bit of tartness to be really tasty. Victoria Thompson, in her Gaslight Series, has always offered the mildest of cozy experiences. I have enjoyed the concept of her independent heroine with a social conscience. In later entries, however, I find myself longing for Sarah Brandt's perfect little daughter to have a temper tantrum, or for Sarah and her policeman Malloy to share a feisty argument or a steamy kiss - some evidence of sexual tension! Sarah has become coy, and the innocence of the series has become a cloying sweetness.
In this, the narrator shares responsibility. Her voices are varied, but overly syrupy. If the author and narrator continue to offer no touch of spice, I'm giving up on this series.
