Away in a Manger By Rhys Bowen: Review/Giveaway

by Theodore Feit


It was inevitable that the Molly Murphy series should have a Christmas tale, and now it does. It is the winter of 1905 in Little ‘Ol' New York, and the streets are filled with Holiday shoppers, beggars and pickpockets. Molly, now Mrs. Murphy, with a little boy and married to police Captain Daniel Murphy, is looking forward to celebrating Christmas with her family and her husband’s visiting mother. Instead, of course, she becomes involved with a murder mystery.

Malice at the Palace by Rhys Bowen

by Terrance Mc Arthur


I am a Rhys Bowen fan. I love her books and I think she’s one of the nicest writers I’ve ever met. Her “Evan” series sings with the music of Wales. Her Molly Murphy books bring the early 1900s of New York City to life. Her Royal Spyness novels are frothy mysteries of British Royalty from the viewpoint of Lady Georgiana Rannoch, the thirty-fifth in line to the throne in the 1930s.
