    Historical Fiction

    The story is told by Jane Prescott, the maid of a wealthy family in New York in 1912. The Titanic has sunk, women are marching for their rights, and there has been a murder at the house where a prominent wedding was to be held. I really enjoyed the history of the time. It was interesting to see how people reacted to the newspaper articles about the Titanic sinking and how the different newspapers made different headlines out of the same happening. Women were marching looking for more privileges. The immigration of Italians, specifically talked about in this book, was being made to be a negative thing. All of this amazing history was woven into a fiction story so that the reader may not even realize that they are learning all while enjoying a wonderful story. I did not read the first book in this series and I can honestly say that I missed out on nothing. The characters were easy to figure out and the story was easy to follow. Death of a New American is a great historical fiction mystery. I’d recommend picking up a copy and meeting Jane Prescott and her newspaper friend, Michael Behan.

    historical-figures, historical-novel, historical-places-events, historical-setting, murder, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths Addicted as I am to well researched historicals, this one really makes the grade! It certainly seems appropriately researched (I'm geeky about checking such things) in areas related to the story line. The characters are all interesting and engaging even the brainless ones. The sleuthing is fascinating with the sort of plot twists and very red herrings. There are a couple of things that I wish I could address, but that would definitely be in spoiler territory. Bottom line is that it held me captive and I loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from St Martin's Press via NetGalley. Thank you!
