Read full description of the books Murder On Sister's Row: Gaslight Mystery Series, Book 13:These books...I'm so torn on them.
One the one hand, they're charming (though sometimes quite predictable) historical mysteries featuring a strong female lead character--a midwife who after her husband's murder chose not to return to her wealthy family to be taken care of, but instead to make her own way in the world--and as her counterpart, a good-hearted (if a bit gruff at times), uncorrupted NYC cop at a time when corruption was rampant in the police department.
On the other hand, while it was established early in the series that Sarah and Malloy are attracted to/care for each other, exactly nothing has been done about it, save for one kiss early in the series. I can totally understand it if the author doesn't want a romance between the two characters to take over the series, but giving us a little something wouldn't hurt, either.
Also, there was very little in the way of character development for the supporting characters either--Maeve, Catherine, Mrs. Ellsworth, etc. I'm afraid the series is in danger of getting a bit stale in that regard.
This particular book...was actually pretty good, mystery-wise. Though, I'd worked out who the killer was before the big reveal, it didn't lessen my enjoyment of the story at all. And I wasn't exactly right about the reason why, either.
I just wish there'd been a bit...just a tiny bit or forward development between Sarah and Malloy...
