Still Life With Murder

Still Life with Murder (Gilded Age Mysteries (Berkley)) by P. B. Ryan ~~ Boston 1868: The wealthy are enjoying the height of the Gilded Age--but not all are wealthy. As governess to the Hewitt family, Irish immigrant Nell Sweeney is sent to discover the truth behind the rumor that their son--thought to be killed in the Civil War--is still alive and in prison.

I'm a big fan of the Victoria Thompson's Gaslight Mystery Series, so I was really looking forward to starting this series. I enjoyed it even more because it's set in Boston. It was interesting to see what was there in the 1800's and if it is still around now (The Charles Street Jail for example). This book didn't disappoint. I'm interested to see what other trouble Nell is going to find in the upcoming books. A
