Main character really interesting. Author writes well and plot is interesting but then she seems to lose control or run out of space and squishes too much into the last part of the book.

This is an enjoyable read. I read the follow-up novel first and then went to find more by this same author and was disappointed that there was only one other in the series. I hope she writes more.

In 1910 New York City, Jane Prescott is a lady’s maid, who finds herself helping to solve a mysterious death. Lots of red herrings in the story and although I had guessed the murderer by the end of the book, I hope Jane will be solving more mysteries. It’s a captivating look into the ostentatious wealth of the early 20th century.

Interesting mystery with a few twists and turns, an introduction to Gilded Age political upheaval and the beginnings of the Progressive movement. Intelligent, kind heroine reminiscent of Anna of Downton Abbey

An easy yet compelling read. It's just as easy to get caught up in it as a period piece as it is as a mystery.

This was a decent mystery set in the 1920s, and perhaps a set up for a series. Not bad.
