    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...

    Here's what's strange about this book: I found the mystery rather confusing with too many characters to keep track of, at times, I felt descriptions were over-written, and I was annoyed that the two main characters who were obviously in love couldn't read each other's emotions. So, why...

    I did enjoy this mystery even if it was sometimes hard to follow. I liked the well researched historical setting, the descriptions of the social environment, and the cast of characters. The mystery was good and it kept me guessing till the end. Recommended! Many thanks to the publi...

    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...

    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 some trouble getting into the 1940s mindset, but enjoyed all the twists and turns of the plot. It starts out with a bang and then kind of runs along like an old school rolley coaster with ups, downs, and variant speed. Lots of bad guys to boo and hiss at. The main characters are ...

    I chose to read this book based on the time period and the description of the story and the heroine, Reggie, and her quest for independence. I was not aware that this was the second book with these characters; I felt left out through some of the story, even as much as the author tried ...

    Rating: 3.5/5 Murder in the City of Liberty is set two years after the first book Murder at the Flamingo. Europe and Hamish?s homeland Canada are at war, but the US has yet to join. Although they were not yet in the trenches; racism and anti-Semitism was growing fast. This sec...

    Fast-paced ~ Richly-detailed ~ Stressful tl;dr: Mystery in Boston touches on prejudice. This face-paced mystery novel set at the cusp of War War II tells about the American milieu. Boston was full of baseball, beautiful buildings, and antisemitism. This a great historic mystery,...

    Murder in the City of Liberty is an astoundingly good historical thriller set in pre-WWII Boston. Not only does it capture the feel of the time, it accurately captures the social unrest and ingrained bigotry that was common. While it doesn?t pull punches when showing antisemitism, co...

    Reading this book makes me feel as if I?d just watched an old pre-war 1940?s movie. I was glad to read more of Reggie and Hamish?s story. The author makes references to this in the book, but they could be modeled after Nick and Nora Charles in ?The Thin Man? movies filmed dur...
