Elves to us and it s hard letting go I really liked this story and it was a wonderful ne to end at a pause I thought when I read the synopsis Regarde, c'est maman ! of this book that it would be a return to what made me love these books in the first place I adored Sarah and Frank and watching their romance blossom But I fear that these books are now suffering from the Moonlighting Syndrome They got marriedtogether and now they are hopelessly boring Sarah doesn t even investigate any longer She founded a birthing center and spends a lotf time just talking about wanting to deliver babies She seems bored with married life especially this new rich married life in the world she fought so hard to escape The biggest mistake this series made was making Frank a millionaire I believe the author asked for suggestions for how Frank and Sarah could be together in polite society with their conflicting backgrounds and this was someone s answer but it wasn t the right The Bricklayer one imo I would have loved to read about the challenges they faced in their every day lives knowing they were going against the ridiculousnessf that time period s value n someone s social standing and how it helped r hindered their crime solving But now because Frank has all this money and had to change careers he spends all his time investigating now with Gino The introduction Vinny: Victory Over Drugs, Death, and Degradation of Maeve and Gino as important characters and placing them and in the spotlight was another mistake Thompson made regarding this series These two bring nothing to the story and just push Sarah further and further into the background to where she is as relevant as Mrs Ellsworth and Mother Malloyr Brian and Catherine for that matter I think if the author wants to retain her readers she needs to marry ff Gino and Maeve and have them move far far away and then give Sarah to do that just play matchmaker to characters nobody cares about Three stars because the mystery was somewhat interesting although the perpetrator was not the least bit surprising but again as f the norm lately the best part about these books is the NYC history lesson Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a DRC f this title in exchange for an honest review The year f 1899 is drawing to a close Frank and Sarah Malloy are getting ready to celebrate the New Year at Trinity Church when they notice Mr Pritchard a relative Pioneer Jews: A New Life in the Far West of their neighbor s behavingddly and annoying the Eating Thin for Life: Food Secrets Recipes from People Who Have Lost Weight Kept It Off other revelers The next morning Sarah and Frank are horrified to learn Pritchard was murdered sometime in the night Frank and Sarah delve into Pritchard s past and realize there may have been a deadly side to the dawningf the new century This was a very enjoyable installment in the gaslight mysteries series I liked it better than the last book The book begins with Frank and Sarah attending a dinner party at their neighbor Mrs Ellsworth s house Her recently married son Nelson and his wife Theda have also invited Theda s family to the dinner and it s a little tense as Theda s father is very pinionated and doesn t hesitate to let his pinions known when certain subjects come up Ultimately the dinner ends in disaster and poor Theda is left in tears One thing I noticed about this book is that the character We, the People of Mrs Ellsworth is much serious here There are no silly superstitions mentioned this time around but it made sense considering what was happening in the bookAs usual I figuredut who the murderer was pretty easily but this book actually did throw a couple Single of good red herrings in there I actually attached a bit to the murderer s motivations than what was concluded in the book though view spoiler I thought he was notnly after marrying Theda but also after acuiring the family business and becoming wealthy hide spoile. Ren't too interested in the murder and the family are concerned that the circumstances f the death will reflect badly n Pritchard's reputation To protect the family from scandal Nelson asks Frank to investigate Frank and Sarah delve into Pritchard's past and realize there may have been a deadly side to the dawning f the new century.
