  1. Too many cooks spoil the broth.Murder in Morningside Heights is 19 in the Gaslight Mystery Series I ve read every single one Love Victoria Thompson and am a forever fan.Sadly, what has happened in 18 is happening here as well The once dynamic duo of Sarah and Frank solving crimes has expanded with an inclusion and constant presence of Maeve, Gino, and even the Deckers Gleaning through the detective feedback from multiple characters just adds too much cumbersome weight to the already razor thin s [...]


  2. Frank Malloy, now happily married to Sarah, had opened the doors to his new business Confidential Inquiries It was a name suggested by his mother in law for detective agency After being dismissed from New York s finest because he inherited some money, he was respectable now and a millionaire he didn t need to work but he was bored So was Sarah His assistant was his former colleague and police officer, Gino Donatelli And their first major case was a young teacher s murder in broad daylight and on [...]


  3. Abigail Northrup of Tarrytown, New York, was her parents pride and joy After graduating from a prestigious women s college in Morningside Heights, she took a job there as an instructor She also joined the ranks of the New Women, ladies planning for a life without a husband in which they make their own decisions and make a difference in the world Unfortunately, her murder ended all that I always enjoy visiting Sarah and Malloy Now that they are married the books have taken a slightly different to [...]


  4. My review for Murder in Morningside Heights by Victoria Thompson will be linked back here in the near future Stay Tuned


  5. I have read all of this series except I somehow missed the one where Frank inherits his millions I must go back and read that one as well Well, enough about my progress onto the review of this fantastic book Victoria Thompson s tales of Sarah and Frank continue to entertain, inform, and captivate the readers Being a woman of many hats and hat pins I especially liked it when Mrs Decker referred to her hat pin as a weapon If I remember correctly, in one of the first books of this series the weapon [...]


  6. Thanks to my library for my copy of this book I am a fan of this series and am up to date with the series Frank and Sarah Mallory are adjusting to their new life Frank has opened a Detective Agency and Sarah is missing portions of her life as a mid wife occupation Frank is hired to find the killer of a normal teacher and made that there is no scandal Sarah and Gino work with him on the investigation side stories include their new family life and Sarah has a problem with the mission The investiga [...]


  7. I found this book a rather weak entry into the Sarah Brandt series Maybe it s because Sarah and Frank are now married and happily ensconced in their new mansion Frank s no longer with the police and Sarah is no longer practicing midwifery This domestic bliss, funnily, seemed to take away from the suspense and excitement of the story These books are enjoyable because they always seemed to be a realistic portrayal of life in late 19 century New York City This book does that to a point, but even th [...]


  8. Not as good as the earlier ones in this series This book was light on mystery It was easy to guess the murderer way ahead of time Also, I found Sarah Brandt and Frank Malloy not quite in character they seemed to have become different people after coming into money


  9. This is usually a pleasant little series with agreeable characters and interesting touches of New York history in the late 19th century This one, though, was a bit of a letdown The plot plodded, normally astute characters were thick as planks when presented with rather obvious clues, the dialogue seemed artificial and overly formal, and frankly, it was easy for even me who NEVER figures out whodunnits to nail the perp pretty early on And what the heck is up with Frank and Sarah They were a lot [...]


  10. I guess this is 19 in the series I can t believe I read that many It looks as though Victoria Thompson cranks them out every year I m addicted to a series once I start The characters are known and I sometimes have hard times getting into the book I also like the historical setting of the book New York in 1899 and the topics she addresses this time women s colleges and adult female relationships The writing isn t very nuanced but they are fun to readd I just ordered number 20.

  12. Vague ish SPOILERS view spoiler hide spoiler Loved the book It seemed to run the natural course that the other books do Sara was clever, Malloy was shrewd, Gino was a doofus, and Maeve teases him for being a doofus.That being said, the secret was kind of a lame one So, he d been there for years and she was the first student thats ever run into French people REALLY I expected Bathsheba to be someones daughter Was sad she wasn t I was looking for janitor teacher forbidden love in the gazebo, but n [...]


  13. I cannot believe this is the 19th book in this wonderful series Frank and Sarah are married, and wealthy, but both bored Frank, no longer with the police, due to his money, has opened a detective agency, bringing Gino along Sarah also has stopped being a midwife, being gone all hours of the night It is a relief when a case arrives, to be solved A young woman who was a teacher, at a woman s school has been stabbed in broad daylight on the school grounds The story has a few twists and turns, and s [...]


  14. Another series which i now give up on.I had been losing interest in the series lately but the last installment which was completely from the pov of the side characters was a hoot Now we are back to sarah and malloy and they are snooze worthy The dialogues feel stunted There are no moments of hilarity, wit or surprises The jokes, like the neighbour s superstitions, feel repetitive and forced rather than quirky.The biggest problem is that There is no tension between the characters themselves Both [...]


  15. I really enjoy this long running series, for the mysteries which are very well done and interesting reflections of the Victorian social s of Gilded Age New York, but also for the delightful characters Thompson has successfully negotiated the loooong awaited marriage of midwife Sarah Brandt and former police detective Frank Malloy, who are now settling into their new life of inherited wealth, blended families and Frank s new private detective agency, ably assisted by recurring characters Gino, Ma [...]


  16. I really enjoy Victoria Thompson s Gaslight mysteries The recurring characters are so likeable that I eagerly look to see what s new with them They do not disappoint.Frank Molloy, now a private detective, is hired to solve the murder of Abigail Northrup, a teacher at a college in Morningside Heights Naturally his wife, Sarah gets involved as well as his assitant, GinoVery good mystery


  17. I have read and enjoyed every book in this series The one thing that truly amazes me is the way that Vicki Thompson is able to include historical details so seamlessly into each book She educates readers about the challenges of 1899 New York and still retains the cozy feel in each book Nicely done.


  18. As always this series never disappoints.I love how this author finds things to write about.In this case have you ever heard about Boston Marriages in the turn of the century I didn t either, so read the book to find out.



  19. Another great story I love the way Victoria Thompson has kept the series moving forward, allowing Frank and Sarah s relationship to evolve Another great mystery


  20. We are now at the point of character development with Frank and Sarah married, Gino and Maeve still figuring each other out, and the house pretty much settled I do feel that there is something missing in the later installments, as the romance tension between Sarah and Frank is not there I do not feel it as much with Maeve and Gino It is almost as if the author is setting it up for them to be together.I did learn about the beginning of higher education for women and the Boston Marriage At the tur [...]


  21. I wondered how Victoria Thompson would change the focus of the Gaslight Mystery series now that Sarah and Frank are newly married and Frank has inherited several million dollars They live in a big house with servants to answer their every need, but they are bored Sarah is no longer a midwife and Frank, forced out of the New York City Police department, has nothing to occupy his days He decides to open up his own private investigation firm.His first case concerns Abigail Northrup, a young woman a [...]


  22. I listened to this is in audio, and with a few exceptions in which the narrator seemed to switch characters, the narration was fine.Normally I don t start in the middle of a mystery series or in this case with book 19 , but was reading this for mystery book group I m left wondering if I would have enjoyed this if I d started at the beginning of the series It s clear a lot has happened with the main characters over the course of the series to get them to the place they re at now But I just didn [...]


  23. In Victorian I think NYC, Frank Molloy is a former policeman turned private investigator, often aided by his wife, former midwife Sarah This time, he s called to investigate the brutal murder of a young teacher at a teaching college Suspects include the two older teachers with whom she rooms, who have a Boston marriage which is likely , the young man who was secretly writing to her and had proposed marriage, another colleague at the school with whom she shared an office, and her own brother Moll [...]


  24. This book holds a special place in my heart because it was the book that got me into this series I picked it up when it was first released because it looked interesting I read about a quarter through and realized that this was a great series but that there was way too much going on for me to catch up I needed to start at book one.So, this book launched my adventure into this series It has been an amazing ride along the way.The mystery in this book was only so so It was pretty obvious who the kil [...]


  25. I am never sure what I will find between the covers of an historical mystery therefore, I attempt to vet them with care While this novel holds much ado concerning the employment of the sexes during the early 1900 s, it does not specifically deal with any major historical occurrence but, I am pleased to say, it was one of those books I hated to put down Frank Malloy has given up his position as a Detective with the corrupt New York City police department to become a private investigator and the j [...]


  26. Sarah Brandt er, that is, Sarah Molloy is in transition Returned from her honeymoon in France, she s now at a bit of a loss as to what to do No longer practicing as a midwife, she does have a larger household to run, but she s relieved of some of her restlessness when her husband Frank, now running his own private investigation firm, asks for a little help interviewing people at a girls college, thinking many would be comfortable talking to a woman A teacher there has been brutally murdered a y [...]


  27. Learning the tricks of the trade I knew who the murderer was within the first two chapters and saw all the clues as the book went on Must admit, I wasn t sure just why it was done, especially the second time a lady was murdered, but, as usual the characters and the story based in turn of the century New York is so well written that there are enough questions to keep the reader engaged I m glad it looks like Sarah may be getting back to work with the delivery of babies And even though some of the [...]


  28. Abigail Northrup is a young school teacher who is murdered The police have closed the case stating it was a random attack at the school Abigail s parents ask Frank Malloy to find out what really happened He learns a great deal about the school, also the people who work in them.As Frank finds out about Abigail Northrup he sees she is not the innocent, sweet person she portrays She has used people for her own gains and betrayed those who have wronged her or she feels like they have.There are quit [...]
