Good book but finishing it made me sad No Frank and Sarah until next April For someone who has been reading the series one a month for 22 months this is a dramatic momentI have really njoyed the whole series I have learned a lot of historical fact about have really njoyed the whole series I have learned a lot of historical fact about York as well as Discover Cooking with Lavender enjoying the fictional characters who populate the books As anxample Murder on Trinity Place introduces us to the time before pasteurising when the milk children drank was as likely to kill them as anything Constipation else We also meet up with the old argument about whether the new century begins on 00 or 01 Seems silly to us now but a lot of people got hot under the collar about it in the pastAt least we temporarily leave Frank and Sarah in a happy place They have formed themselves a nice family unit and both have work which keeps them pleasurably occupied Maybe there will be a baby Molloy in a future book Lots to look forward to Roll on next April I think it s time to say goodbye to another series I started reading it last year and loved most of the books but lately I don t like much about the stories or the characters anyThere s zero character development and the characters do the same things over and over again which is frustrating to read I m not invested as much as to torture myself with the next installmentI miss how Sarah and Frank were and how they solved mysteries together with not so much interference by others Now Gino and Meave arevery time with them and I can t stand their bickering teasing and their will they won t they story line I know Thompson loves Gino and Meave and thinks all her fans do so too but she should be perceptive in my opinion I miss Frank and Sarah s interactions with their children but for the sake of Gino and Meave the don t have much presence in recent books which is a shame I don t feel like Malloy and Sarah are a married couple or Jack the Giant Killer even a family it just feels like they just live in the same house There are so many story lines the author couldxplore between Malloy and Sarah and it s a shame she just keeps them in the same things book after book I "enjoyed reading about Mrs Ellsworth and her family and what I did njoy most in this book is "reading about Mrs Ellsworth and her family and what I did njoy most in this book is story between Jack Robinson and Jocelyn The mystery wasn t so interesting since I could figure out one supposedly shock factor and I really managed to narrow the suspects from the beginning in only two This series have great characters and I love the family dynamic and crime solving in Victorian New York I did learn something new swill milk How disturbing was that This was a uick read and had some good moments Sadly dialogues became too repetitive throughout the book 25 stars There s always something odd about being normalIt s New Year s Eve in December of 1899 Throngs of people gather outside around Trinity Church in New York City It s one of the old fashioned norms of the holiday in which revelers listen to holiday music streaming from the church as they wait on the threshold of the new yearPrivate Detective Frank Malloy and his wife Sarah are wrapped in a blanket across their laps in their open air vehicle They spot their neighbor Mr Pritchard lumbering in and out of the crowd He appears to have had too much holiday punch Frank assures Sarah that he will track the man down and bring him back home with them Frustrated Frank returns with no Mr PritchardBut pigeons seem to return to the roost Mr Pitchard is found straggled to death near Trinity Church His family hires Frank and his partner Gino to investigate when the police turn up with no motive and no killer Pritchard owned a local dairy that delivered milk in the community for many years Who could possibly have it in for a business man as pure as his milkVictoria Thompson injects a bit of a true historical Lambs To The Slaughter event in this one Children were dying due to the impurities linked to milk at this time Shady distributors passed off something called swill milk in which sick cows were fed contaminated hay and were tied up in filthy stalls Pasteurization was hit or missMurder on Trinity Place is notxactly The devil's in the details when a man is found murdered near Trinity Church in the latest installment of the national bestselling Gaslight Mystery seriesThe year of 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 of their neighbor'. Ught up with the most recently released book in the series For the last 22 months we ve Córka Robrojka (Jeżycjada, enjoyed visiting these charactersach month and delighting in the discussion While it s not the The Neil Simon Collection end as there s another scheduled for release in April there s a vacuum that can t be filled in the next months These characters havendeared themselves to us and it s hard letting go I Really Liked This Story really liked this story it was a wonderful one to Slate (Rebel Wayfarers MC, end at a pause I thought when I read the synopsis 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 tven investigate any longer She founded a birthing center and spends a lot of time just talking about wanting to deliver babies She seems bored with married life specially this new rich married life in the world she fought so hard to scape 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 one imo I would have loved to read about the challenges they faced in their very day lives knowing they were going against the ridiculousness of that time period s value on someone s social standing and how it helped or 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 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 Malloy or Brian and Catherine for that matter I think if the author wants to retain her readers she needs to marry off 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 of the norm lately the best part about these books is the NYC history lesson Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a DRC of this title in xchange for an honest review The year of 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 of their neighbor s behaving oddly and annoying the 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 dawning of the new century This was a very EL SUTIL ARTE DE QUE (CASI TODO) TE IMPORTE UNA MIERDA (HARPERCOLLINS) 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 opinionated and doesn t hesitate to let his opinions known when certain subjects come up Ultimately the dinnernds in disaster and poor Theda is left in tears One thing I noticed about this book is that the character 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 figured out who the murderer was pretty asily but this book
Actually Did Throw A Coupledid throw a couple 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 not only after marrying Theda but also after acuiring the family business and becoming wealthy hide spoiler. Ren't too interested in the murder and the family are concerned that the circumstances of the death will reflect badly on 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 of the new century.
