    Excellent Historical Cozy Myster

    Elizabeth Adams, is a woman before her time. She is a crime photographer at the Daily Trumpet in New York City and works closely with veteran crime reporter Ralph Kaminsky. Today no one would blink an eye at a woman photographer, but in 1939 that is virtually unheard of. She is a career woman when almost all women married and stayed home to raise children. The reporter and his photographer are on the way to the World’s Fair, where a robbery has just been committed. But when they arrive to get the details for a story, a dead body is found. Is this crime connected to the robbery or is it unrelated? Both Biz (as Kaminsky calls Elizabeth) and Kaminsky are on the trail. The story takes them in and around the World’s Fair as well as New York City. While working the clues to the crimes at the World’s Fair, Kaminsky has a health scare. Unlike other women of the day, Elizabeth jumps right into the investigation, much to everyone else’s dismay. They might just be right when she puts herself in danger. Hopefully the reporter and his favorite photographer will live to write another story. All of the details Cochran adds to this historical cozy mystery are fascinating. From the nickel and dime subway rides to the high heels Elizabeth wears to crime scenes, the reader is pulled into the past. The setting of this novel is brilliant. Bodies among the new inventions that we now consider relics of our past really pulls the reader into the past and the story. I love learning new facts about the World’s Fair that Cochran tucks in this perfect cozy mystery. This is the third book in the Murder She Encountered Series. It is the first book I have read in the series, and I found it fun and interesting. I was not confused or lost by jumping in the middle of the series. It is also the first book I have read by the prolific cozy author, Peg Cochran. She is the author of several cozy mystery series. I am excited to read the others in this series. DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTION: I have a material connection because I received a review copy for free from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Copyright © 2019 Laura Hartman

    Enjoyable historical cozy

    Photographer "Biz" Adams is assigned o reporter Ralph Kaminsky. It is 1939 and NYC is home to the World's Fair. When a young woman is murdered at the fair, Biz finds herself investigating alone when Kaminsky ends up in hospital. Elizabeth's quick thinking helps her friend Det. Marino catch the killer. A fast-paced historical cozy mystery set in 1939 that highlights the upcoming technology we take from granted now. I volunteered to read an ARC through Net Galley.

    An engaging cozy mystery!

    Murder, She Encountered by Peg Cochran has Elizabeth “Biz” Adams visiting the New York World’s Fair with veteran crime reporter, Ralph Kaminsky when a woman is murdered. The police arrest hot dog vender, Joey Dorman for the crime but things do not add up. Ralph and Biz dig deeper into the case in the hopes of a big story. When Ralph ends up in the hospital with bronchitis, Biz continues to investigate. Unfortunately, someone is not happy with Biz’ questions and decides to help her cool off. Someone has a secret that they will kill for which is evident when a second victim turns up at the fair. Ralph springs himself from the hospital and rejoins Biz to get to the bottom of this perplexing case. Murder, She Encountered is the third in the Murder She Reported Series. It can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. However, I have enjoyed reading the series in order which has allowed me to get to know Ralph Kaminsky and Elizabeth “Biz” Adams. Elizabeth comes from a well-to-family, but she chafes at the endless rules and restrictions. Her mother, Helen does not understand Elizabeth’s desire to work. It is a good thing that Biz’ parents do not take the Daily Trumpet, or they would lock Elizabeth in her room. Ralph Kaminsky is a veteran crime reporter who grabs Biz whenever he goes out on a story. He is the gruff type with a heart of gold. You can tell that he cares for Elizabeth. Ralph and Elizabeth make a great team. Detective Sal Marino is Elizabeth’s beau and she is falling for the handsome detective. She can see a future with Marino, but Elizabeth cannot say the same for her mother. I found Murder, She Encountered to be well-written with steady pacing. I can tell that Peg Cochran has done her research. I enjoyed her descriptions of the World’s Fair taking place in New York in 1939. The lingo is accurate for the time period along with the clothing and types of conveyances. We get to see what it was like to take the subway in 1939. There are new inventions mentioned like nylon from Dupont and air conditioning. Elizabeth shocks her mother by going out in trousers which were made popular by Katherine Hepburn. Mr. & Mrs. Adams went out to view The Philadelphia Story and Kay Kyser’s “Three Little Fishes” was playing on the radio (FYI—Kay Kyser is a man). The mystery was complex and there was active investigating throughout the story. I like how all the pieces tied together. The author really thought out this multifaceted whodunit. The ending has me anxious for the next Murder She Reported novel. Murder, She Encountered is an engrossing cozy mystery with a mystifying mystery, exciting exhibits, soaring temperatures, a poorly reporter, meddlesome models, and a probing photographer.

    Murder Mystery

    I really liked Murder, She Encountered. Another good murder mystery by this Author. I have enjoyed all three books in this series. Elizabeth and Kaminsky are at it again chasing leads to quite a few murders at The World's Fair. A good story with bold characters and a very good ending. #MurderSheEncountered #NetGalley I give Murder, She Encountered 4 stars for its good murder mystery. I would recommend this book to Cozy Mystery Fans.
