3 near rapes, 3 murders and one more attempted... sounds a bit intense, but it is really a cream puff read. We follow beautiful, naïve, and spunky, Molly Murphy as she immigrates from Ireland to New York and watch as one little lie has to follow the next. I enjoyed the historical background wound into the story, the plucky heroine and that it really is a clean, positive read. The plot depends on repeated coincidences, that at times strain belief... but I personally enjoyed it more than Rhys's "Royal Spyness" series. The narrator is fantastic. Yep, I'll be getting next one, but will wait for a while since it's a dessert read and cream puffs can be addictive.

Where does Murphy's Law rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This was a great read.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Molly is such a great character, full of fire and persistence.
Have you listened to any of Nicola Barber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I haven't listened to Nicola Barber before but I loved her performance. She has a great voice and does the accents well,
Any additional comments?
I like to listen to Audio books in the car with my family. It is difficult to find adult books that are appropriate for my young kids to listen to. I do love to listen to kids and young adult books but it is so refreshing to listen to an adult mystery that is not full of sex and graphic violence. This book does have a love interest and there is some kissing but nothing graphic or that I would feel uncomfortable with my kids hearing. The book is a murder mystery and so there are a few deaths in the book, but no graphic violence. I look forward to listening to all the Molly Murphy mysteries.
