Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Cozy
Molly Murphy—now Molly Sullivan—is a year into
her marriage, expecting her first child, and confined to
the life of a housewife. She's restless and irritable in
the enforced idleness of pregnancy and the heat of a New
York summer in 1905. So when a trip to the post office
brings a letter addressed to her old detective agency
asking her to locate a missing Irish serving maid, Molly
figures it couldn't hurt to at least ask around, despite
her promise to Daniel to give up her old career as a
detective. On the same day, Molly learns that five babies
have been kidnapped in the past month.
Refusing to let Molly help with the kidnapping
investigation, Daniel sends her away to spend the summer
with his mother. But even in the quiet, leafy suburbs,
Molly's own pending motherhood makes her unable to ignore
these missing children. What she uncovers will lead her on
a terrifying journey through all levels of society, putting
her life—and that of her baby—in danger.

Re: The Family Way
I find I'm one of the few people left who send Chrustmas cards - at least
from my generation. I loved getting letters. Or post cards. When my great-
grandparents were still alive and well enough to enjoy travelling, my
Grandma Rene would send me a post card from wherever they were. And
as a pre-teen, a friend went to California; I timed our letters back and forth
- it took three days! :)

Progess versus cilivity...my electronic hot button. I sometimes believe I'd prefer to have lived in an era of politeness. Thankfully there are families that raise their children to love, respect,and honor their elders.

Nope, I don't do the phone stuff. I check my mails at home, leave them at home. If I want entertainment I read or watch the nature and the people around me.
I enjoy your Royal Spyness books, good luck with your latest!

I'm a low-tech sort. I have a cell phone but only for
emergencies...it's never turned on! I like the slower times
depicted in the historical romances I read. That said, I
still prefer living in the 21st century! Your books sound
interesting, just the kind I like to read.

I hate the phone light in the theater - it doesn't matter if it's for a movie or a play, I realize that it is a nerve that someone has just trampled on and I suddenly go all Mr. Hyde on them. Of course only to spend the rest of the movie worried about some gum landing in my hair...
I also love letters. I spend once a month writing my relatives, letting them know how I am,, what I am thinking, that I was thinking of them -- it's so nice to get something other than junk mail or bills in the mailbox. Unfortunately, I wonder whether my children ever got an education - with writing it is as is they have been texting, breaking down words, using abbreviations that make no sense. Technology might have made communication easy, but it certainly destroyed it.

I do the Christmas cards plus a note, brief highlights of the last year, as I hate getting cards with nothing but a name. Tells me nothing but that you are alive....at least that is better than no card!!! You are a new author to me but you write the genre I like; historical romance/mysteries....I will have to check into your books!!!
