I love this series and this was my favorite one for a long time. All of my favorite characters were back in this installment. I love Sarah and Frank but it is great to have the minor characters also. I did not want to put this book down. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I received a copy of this book from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this a five out of five stars.
Murder on Union Square (Gaslight Mystery Series #21) by Victoria Thompson
When a murder hits close to home, Frank finds himself in an unusual position—the prime suspect in the latest installment of the national bestselling Gaslight Mystery series…
Sarah and Frank Malloy are enjoying married life and looking to make their family official by adopting Catherine, the child whom Sarah rescued and has been raising as her daughter. The process seems fairly straightforward, but at the last minute, the newlyweds discover that Parnell Vaughn, Catherine’s legal father, has a claim on the child, and his grasping fiancée is demanding a financial settlement to relinquish parental rights. Even though exchanging money for a child is illegal, Frank and Sarah’s love for Catherine drives them to comply.
When Frank returns with the money and finds Vaughn beaten to death, all evidence points to Frank as the culprit. A not-quite-famous actor with modest means, Vaughn seems an unlikely candidate for murder, particularly such a violent crime of passion. But Frank soon uncovers real-life intrigue as dramatic as any that appears on stage.
Sarah and Frank enlist those closest to them to help hunt for Vaughn’s killer as Frank’s own life—and the future of their family—hang in the balance.
