    Historical fiction with a touch of crime is always appealing to me--and, this book' set in Boston, 1940 held a lot of promise for me. The two protagonists are compelling characters but the mystery takes a very distant second place to the romance. And, for me that was both boring and te...

    Maybe I should have read the first book in this series before asking for this via NetGalley. Unfortunately, I don't think I can finish reading this. For example, I was terribly confused by the scene which has DeLuca saving Van Buren from almost drowning. The whole episode just wasn...

    On a scale of cotton candy and Brussels sprouts, Murder in the City of Liberty by Rachel McMillan is unlimited kettle corn. Lightly sweet with a touch of saltiness, kettle corn is an addictive crunch that you can't feel bad consuming. What's another handful? [copy received. opinions...

    I first must say that for a book from a Christian publisher, the faith elements are either very thickly veiled OR missing. I'm not sure which. Murder in the City of Liberty is a well-written, engaging book with fabulous characters. I seriously had so much fun with them. You have no ...

    Onetime socialite Regina ?Reggie? Van Buren and shy lawyer Hamish DeLuca met in a previous book I haven?t read. But not having read the first in the series isn?t what kept me from enjoying this sequel in which the pair, now partners in a detective agency, look into some nasty p...

    I was having a bit of a time to get into this story, but soon realized that this was the second book, and I did feel lost. While this story takes place just prior to WWII we meet prejudice and antisemitism head on, and there is a mystery and sparks flying, I?ll admit I had to fight ...

    When this book popped up for review, I was thrilled! I haven?t read the first book in the series, but it has been on my radar. Then this one came up and I was eager to dive in. I am absolutely in love with the cover and can?t get enough of the colors and the gorgeous art deco de...

    Oh. My. Word. I thoroughly loved every second spent with Reggie and Hamish in this fantastic murder mystery. Murder in the City of Liberty is SO, SO good. The plot is insanely fast paced and highly engaging. Hamish and Reggie are outstanding protagonists. The chemistry between the two ...

    I'm happy to be back with the duo of Hamish and Reggie. They are a great team and for some reason remind me of the duo from the show Moonlighting. They have this quirky relationship that seems to compliment each other. I'm not quite sure if there are sparks between them at times, but t...

    I want to start by making this abundantly clear: I love Hammish. As a person who suffers from anxiety attacks, this character is my hero. As Hammish is experiencing his "episodes," I am right there with him. The description are so well written that I had to be careful, because I could ...

    I love a mystery that uses the political and sociocultural influences of the times to enhance the story. Boston is the setting, in the 1940?s, where racism and corruption exist in the background. Reggie and Hamish are hired to find out who is harassing a Black baseball player, when t...

    Y?all, I just adore Hamish DeLuca. This man is loyal to those closest to him and strives to protect them even when his own anxiety threatens. It?s obvious there?s been a growing friendship (and perhaps more?) between Hamish and Reggie in the couple years that have passed since th...

    This is the second book in the series involving Hamish and Reggie. I was hoping they would have improved since the first outing but sadly they may have gotten worse. I had such a hard time finishing this. It, much like the first one, was not too mysterious. Or thrilling. The way the ch...

    I had difficulty reading this novel. I was confused by the beginning, starting with Luca. I remember wondering who Luca was when this novel was about deLuca. That chapter would have better been placed later, after identifying the relationship between those cousins. Then there was an...

    From my endorsement (which ended up on the front cover. Oh. My. Squee.): Rachel McMillan paints her portrait of 1940 Boston with brushes of poetry, humor, and care for historical detail. In this sequel she brings us home, not only to a city she clearly loves, but also to her winning ca...

    Murder in the City of Liberty by Rachel McMillan is a story filled with accurate details and a nod to classic literature. The story does have a dead body in it and does move the story along, but, I believe, the plot is more a cultural nod to the social and racial tensions of the 1940'...

    Rachel Mcmillan's unique voice never fails to draw me into her stories. Her love of Boston and attention to historical detail is evident in this 1940 mystery. America is hovering on the brink of war and the tensions felt by people from all walks of life are the unifying thread between ...

    Hamish + Reggie 4 ever! No, I?m not doodling romantic daydreams inside the cover of my school books, but I would happily read books about these two forever. Even their names go together perfectly! Perhaps more perfectly than they do themselves, but that explanation is better left to ...

    This novel was the epitome of historical romantic mysteries set in 30s Boston, with all the civil unrest, tension between the protagonists, and the underlying web binding crime and their pasts together. Reggie is her usual charming self- even as the loved ones of her former life je...
