A Molly Murphy Mystery
by Rhys Bowen
Where I live it is hot today! So, it seems like a great time to think about colder weather. That brought me to this seventeenth entry in Rhys Bowen’s Molly Murphy series. It is clear that by now Ms. B knows what she is doing and where she wants to be in each of the stories.
It is 1906 and Molly and her husband have been through a lot. They are, therefore, looking forward to the break that they anticipate when they are invited to Christmas dinner at a Hudson River mansion. What happened to their hosts’ daughter? Is a certain visitor who they claim to be? Read the book to find out. It offers an enjoyable diversion.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
“A difficult case that evokes old-time Christmas traditions and a solution that will warm the heart”.

“The latest Molly Murphy mystery is another great installment in the series by Bowen. The mystery itself contains a big maze of secrets that Molly and her husband must cut through, which is also a perk for readers.”

“For series and historical mystery fans, it’s a treat to return to historic New York during the holidays as the indomitable Molly investigates an unusual disappearance.”
“Well-drawn characters and setting, strong women, and crisp details of life in the early 1900s add to this historical mystery”
