    Murder on Trinity Place by Victoria Thompson is a 2019 Berkley publication A perfect blend of history and mystery This is yet another long running series that never seems to lose its charm In this episode, Frank and Sarah s neighbor, Theda, hires Frank, after her father, a dairy owner, dies on New Year s Eve Initially reluctant to take the case without giving the proper authorities the chance to investigate, it soon becomes clear the police have been paid to look the other way So, Frank, Sa Murder on Trinity Place by Victoria Thompson is a 2019 Berkley publication A perfect blend of history and mystery This is yet another long running series that never seems to lose its charm In this episode, Frank and Sarah s neighbor, Theda, hires Frank, after her father, a dairy owner, dies on New Year s Eve Initially reluctant to take the case without giving the proper authorities the chance to investigate, it soon becomes clear the police have been paid to look the other way So, Frank, Sarah, Maeve, and Gino embark on a most puzzling and dangerous mission to discover the truth I learn something new every time I read a book in this series In this case, the story is centered around the dairy business in New York in the 1800s Evidently, the milk wars , which I had never heard of, lead to the outlawing of swill milk which resulted in the deaths of nearly half of the children of New York City before the age of five The victim in this story was a stickler for the rules and may have threatened to expose a dairy that still sold swill milk But there are plenty of other suspects, all with a valid motive There are several surprises and twist along the way, as well a little romantic matchmaking on Sarah s part, which was a terrific idea for the couple in question As with any ongoing series, some installments are better than others This is one of thedurable chapters in the series, which held my attention from beginning to end If you enjoy historical mysteries, this is one of the best ones out there Overall, another terrific whodunit from Victoria Thompson 4.5 stars

    There s always something odd about being normal.It s New Year s Eve in December of 1899 Throngs of people gather outside around Trinity Church in New York City It s one of the old fashioned norms of the holiday in which revelers listen to holiday music streaming from the church as they wait on the threshold of the new year.Private Detective Frank Malloy and his wife, Sarah, are wrapped in a blanket across their laps in their open air vehicle They spot their neighbor, Mr Pritchard, lumbering There s always something odd about being normal.It s New Year s Eve in December of 1899 Throngs of people gather outside around Trinity Church in New York City It s one of the old fashioned norms of the holiday in which revelers listen to holiday music streaming from the church as they wait on the threshold of the new year.Private Detective Frank Malloy and his wife, Sarah, are wrapped in a blanket across their laps in their open air vehicle They spot their neighbor, Mr Pritchard, lumbering in and out of the crowd He appears to have had too much holiday punch Frank assures Sarah that he will track the man down and bring him back home with them Frustrated, Frank returns with no Mr Pritchard.But pigeons seem to return to the roost Mr Pitchard is found straggled to death near Trinity Church His family hires Frank and his partner, Gino, to investigate when the police turn up with no motive and no killer Pritchard owned a local dairy that delivered milk in the community for many years Who could possibly have it in for a business man as pure as his milk Victoria Thompson injects a bit of a true historical event in this one Children were dying due to the impurities linked to milk at this time Shady distributors passed off something called swill milk in which sick cows were fed contaminated hay and were tied up in filthy stalls Pasteurization was hit or miss.Murder on Trinity Place is not exactly a cozy mystery with fluff There s plenty of dead bodies, sleezy people, and dastardly crime in this one But Thompson has a way with taking you from the acidity of this real world that we live in and carries you to a time of civility and genuine kindness It s a refreshing breakaway from constant confrontations and malcontents within the boundaries of 323 pages Just sign me up for the next one, Victoria Thompson Just sign me up

    Good book but finishing it made me sad NoFrank and Sarah until next April For someone who has been reading the series one a month for 22 months this is a dramatic moment I have really enjoyed the whole series I have learned a lot of historical fact about New York as well as enjoying the fictional characters who populate the books As an example Murder on Trinity Place introduces us to the time before pasteurising when the milk children drank was as likely to kill them as anything else Good book but finishing it made me sad NoFrank and Sarah until next April For someone who has been reading the series one a month for 22 months this is a dramatic moment I have really enjoyed the whole series I have learned a lot of historical fact about New York as well as enjoying the fictional characters who populate the books As an example Murder on Trinity Place introduces us to the time before pasteurising when the milk children drank was as likely to kill them as anything else We also meet up with the old argument about whether the new century begins on 00 or 01 Seems silly to us now but a lot of people got hot under the collar about it in the past.At least we temporarily leave Frank and Sarah in a happy place They have formed themselves a nice family unit and both have work which keeps them pleasurably occupied Maybe there will be a baby Molloy in a future book Lots to look forward to Roll on next April

    Frank and Sarah Malloy attend a dinner party at Mrs Ellsworth s home to celebrate the recent marriage of her son His in laws were there and Clarence Pritchard, Nelson s father in law, behaved rather strangely, leaving in agitation after no one shared his point of view about the upcoming year 1900 being the true new century instead of 1901 When Frank and Sarah run into him on New Year s Eve outside Trinity Church, he s forcing his argument on everyone he sees and they re worried for him The n Frank and Sarah Malloy attend a dinner party at Mrs Ellsworth s home to celebrate the recent marriage of her son His in laws were there and Clarence Pritchard, Nelson s father in law, behaved rather strangely, leaving in agitation after no one shared his point of view about the upcoming year 1900 being the true new century instead of 1901 When Frank and Sarah run into him on New Year s Eve outside Trinity Church, he s forcing his argument on everyone he sees and they re worried for him The next day, they learn that he was found murdered not far from the church Nelson s wife, Theda, asks Frank to investigate once he determines the police have been paid off to drop the case.This was an interesting case as the Pritchards were quite the dysfunctional family and the investigation led to some surprising directions But what captured my heart was the secondary plot involving Black Jack Robinson, our favorite local bad boy I won t spoil the story but it s an unexpected delight I also learned about the early days of dairy farms, especially the challenges faced by serving a major city and the introduction of pasteurization Motor cars are also a feature here, too It s a bittersweet moment as our group has now caught up with the most recently released book in the series For the last 22 months, we ve enjoyed visiting these characters each month and delighting in the discussion While it s not the end as there s another scheduled for release in April, there s a vacuum that can t be filled in the next months These characters have endeared themselves to us and it s hard letting go I really liked this story and it was a wonderful one to end at a pause

    I think it s time to say goodbye to another series I started reading it last year and loved most of the books but lately I don t like much about the stories or the characters any There s zero character development and the characters do the same things over and over again which is frustrating to read I m not invested as much as to torture myself with the next installment I miss how Sarah and Frank were and how they solved mysteries together with not so much interference by others Now Gin I think it s time to say goodbye to another series I started reading it last year and loved most of the books but lately I don t like much about the stories or the characters any There s zero character development and the characters do the same things over and over again which is frustrating to read I m not invested as much as to torture myself with the next installment I miss how Sarah and Frank were and how they solved mysteries together with not so much interference by others Now Gino and Meave are every time with them and I can t stand their bickering, teasing and their will they won t they story line I know Thompson loves Gino and Meave and thinks all her fans do so too but she should beperceptive in my opinion I miss Frank and Sarah s interactions with their children but for the sake of Gino and Meave the don t have much presence in recent books which is a shame I don t feel like Malloy and Sarah are a married couple or even a family it just feels like they just live in the same house There are so many story lines the author could explore between Malloy and Sarah and it s a shame she just keeps them in the same things book after book I enjoyed reading about Mrs Ellsworth and her family and what I did enjoy most in this book is the story between Jack Robinson and Jocelyn The mystery wasn t so interesting since I could figure out one supposedly shock factor and I really managed to narrow the suspects from the beginning in only two

    I thought when I read the synopsis of this book that it would be a return to what made me love these books in the first place I adored Sarah and Frank and watching their romance blossom But I fear that these books are now suffering from the Moonlighting Syndrome They got married together and now they are hopelessly boring Sarah doesn t even investigate any longer She founded a birthing center and spends a lot of time just talking about wanting to deliver babies She seems bored with marri I thought when I read the synopsis of this book that it would be a return to what made me love these books in the first place I adored Sarah and Frank and watching their romance blossom But I fear that these books are now suffering from the Moonlighting Syndrome They got married together and now they are hopelessly boring Sarah doesn t even investigate any longer She founded a birthing center and spends a lot of time just talking about wanting to deliver babies She seems bored with married life, especially this new rich married life in the world she fought so hard to escape The biggest mistake this series made was making Frank a millionaire I believe the author asked for suggestions for how Frank and Sarah could be together in polite society with their conflicting backgrounds and this was someone s answer, but it wasn t the right one, imo I would have loved to read about the challenges they faced in their every day lives knowing they were going against the ridiculousness of that time period s value on someone s social standing and how it helped or hindered their crime solving But now, because Frank has all this money and had to change careers, he spends all his time investigating now with Gino The introduction of Maeve and Gino as important characters and placing themandin the spotlight was another mistake Thompson made regarding this series These two bring nothing to the story and just push Sarah further and further into the background, to where she is as relevant as Mrs Ellsworth and Mother Malloy, or Brian and Catherine for that matter I think if the author wants to retain her readers, she needs to marry off Gino and Maeve and have them move far, far away, and then give Sarahto do that just play matchmaker to characters nobody cares about Three stars because the mystery was somewhat interesting, although the perpetrator was not the least bit surprising, but again, as of the norm lately, the best part about these books is the NYC history lesson Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a DRC of this title in exchange for an honest review

    Can t believe I ve read 21 books in this series The attraction is not just the entertaining murder mysteries, but really the development of the cast, sometimes in surprising ways Additionally, I love the correct historical tidbits the author offers us here about milk production and sale, and even an old board game precursor of The Game of Life that really bring the setting to life.

  9. Kay Kay says:

    This series have great characters and I love the family dynamic and crime solving in Victorian New York I did learn something new swill milk How disturbing was that This was a quick read and had some good moments Sadly, dialogues became too repetitive throughout the book, 2.5 stars.

    The year of 1899 is drawing to a close Frank and Sarah Malloy are getting ready to celebrate the New Year at Trinity Church when they notice Mr Pritchard, a relative of their neighbor s behaving oddly and annoying the other revelers The next morning Sarah and Frank are horrified to learn Pritchard was murdered sometime in the night Frank and Sarah delve into Pritchard s past and realize there may have been a deadly side to the dawning of the new century This was a very enjoyable installmen The year of 1899 is drawing to a close Frank and Sarah Malloy are getting ready to celebrate the New Year at Trinity Church when they notice Mr Pritchard, a relative of their neighbor s behaving oddly and annoying the other revelers The next morning Sarah and Frank are horrified to learn Pritchard was murdered sometime in the night Frank and Sarah delve into Pritchard s past and realize there may have been a deadly side to the dawning of the new century This was a very enjoyable installment in the gaslight mysteries series I liked it better than the last book The book begins with Frank and Sarah attending a dinner party at their neighbor Mrs Ellsworth s house Her recently married son Nelson and his wife Theda have also invited Theda s family to the dinner and it s a little tense as Theda s father is very opinionated and doesn t hesitate to let his opinions known when certain subjects come up Ultimately the dinner ends in disaster and poor Theda is left in tears One thing I noticed about this book is that the character of Mrs Ellsworth is muchserious here There are no silly superstitions mentioned this time around, but it made sense considering what was happening in the book.As usual I figured out who the murderer was pretty easily, but this book actually did throw a couple of good red herrings in there I actually attached a bitto the murderer s motivations than what was concluded in the book though view spoiler I thought he was not only after marrying Theda, but also after acquiring the family business and becoming wealthy hide spoiler One thing that does bother me about the murders in this series is that too many people are murdered that are somehow acquainted with Sarah and Frank This is actually something that happens a lot in mystery series that can make them seem implausible In this case though, with Frank being a private investigator there should be ample opportunity for the author to capitalize on that and have him investigate cases that have nothing to do with anyone he or Sarah knows It would be so muchbelievable One thing I do really like about this series is that the author always adds in some real historical facts from the time period I learned a few interesting things as I read this book that I didn t previously know One is how Wall Street got its name It was not at all what I expected I also learned about the milk wars and what swill milk was Another thing I learned about was the origins of the board game Life It also seemed that there was some debate over whether the turn of the century should be celebrated in 1900 or 1901.Like the last book in the series, this one included characters that we met in a previous book I m really liking that this seems to be a thing now in each book This time around we revisit the character of Jack Robinson fromMurder in the Bowery Sarah plays matchmaker for Jack and one of the ladies staying in the clinic, and I liked that part of the story a lot I would love to seeof them in future books I also have to mention one other thing that I loved about this book Frank finally gets a motorcar Thanks to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing Group for providing me with a copy of this book.Review also posted at Writings of a Reader
