  • Great characters!

    NYC, early-20th-century, gangsters, amateur-sleuth, reporter, murder, murder-investigation***** Lady Philomena, the young Dowager Countess of Dunbridge, with the help of her maid Lily, and the family butler Preswick have previously been tapped for assistance by a shadowy representative of an unknown group (presumably working for good). Amid the hullabaloo approaching Christmas, she is told to meet someone who turns out to have been murdered. It seems that the victim worked at the same newspaper as Lady Phil's society friends, but no one has been told of his demise despite his body having been removed by the police. Let the sleuthing begin! An interesting mystery with delightful characters! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Macmillan-Tor/Forge Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A Charming Christmas Delight!

    Talk about atmospheric and timely! I read this charming mystery two weeks before Christmas with a blanket of deep snow on the ground and hot chocolate at hand, Christmas lights and decorations twinkling. The gilded age is one of my favourites to read about and Shelley Noble's spirited Lady Dunbridge series is loads of fun. A Resolution at Midnight is the third in the series and takes place in New York City in 1907, on the verge of 1908. Though I read the first two this could also be read as a stand alone. During the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations Lady Dunbridge (Lady Phil) who is a sleuth encounters a murder in very, very close quarters. Her lady's maid, Lily, and butler, Preswick, are taken into confidence and help her track the murderer. Other mysteries are dotted throughout the book as well. Seamlessly. We learn more about Mr. X as well as the newspaper industry as we meet characters who are involved in it. The historical details such as food and dress are wonderful and easy to get lost in. So is the vernacular of the time. I love the personality of Lady Phil! She is such fun and the kind of person you'd love to be friends with. I also enjoy Preswick and Lily, very different from each other yet very complementary and extremely loyal to their employer. As in real life, they all have quirks and foibles, very appealing. Historical Fiction and Mystery readers should gravitate to this book and this series, especially (but not crucially!) during the festive Christmas season as it is described in great detail here. My sincere thank you to Macmillan-Tor/Forge and NetGalley for providing me with a digital copy of this delightful book in exchange for an honest review. Much appreciated.

    Thanks for your feedback!
