This was a series that I hadn t heard anything about The author and the series were completely new to me but I fell in love with the cover and was eager to see what it was aboutI am always on the look out for new historical mysteries and Kensington Books have a slew of authors that I have come to enjoy over the yearsSo this is the second book in a new series and even though I missed the first book I didn t feel like I couldn t read this one The author did a great job orientating the readers so that they didn t miss too much from the first book Of course there are things I have missed from the first book but I didn t feel like I couldn t get through the book without reading the first one Though that said I liked this one enough that I want to go back and read the first bookThe thing I love about historical mysteries especially lady detective mysteries is a lot of them are less serious than run of the mill thrillers I use reading as an escape so often I want something light hearted and fun to read It doesn t always have to be serious or earth shattering This book was exactly that for me It was at times silly but in the best sort of way I enjoyed reading it uite a bit and the mystery as fun to solve right along side LaneOn that note I loved Lane She fills the roll of independent woman just right She has a dynamic personality with lots of layers still left to discover I am excited to see how she grows and changes throughout the series The 1930s aren t really my era but I thought that Lane was a progressive woman that fit nicely in the period though she was a modern womanThe author has done a great job with her historical research As I said the 1930s aren t my favorite era but they could be for this book The beauty and the glamour of the era were evident in this bookWhile the protagonist and the historical details were well done the language and dialogue were a little plain I noted that some other reviewers felt the same and I would have to agree It wasn t boring but it didn t stand out either For me dialogue needs to jump off the page and drive the story in this case it seemed to just steer the story rather than propel it forwardOne final note this cover hit all the high notes It s interesting elegant and totally oozes art deco Whoever designed the cover did an outstanding job I love the red and gold together and if I saw it in a bookstore I would grab it off the shelf without hesitationOverall I left this book feeling satisfied It a fun mystery with an interesting main character I would gladly read books by this author and am looking forward to reading the first book in the series as well as the next onesee my full review here

The Gold Pawn review È 108 Read The Gold Pawn Ories after viciously murdering her parents However one memory of a dazzling solid gold pawn piece remains and with it lies a startling connection between the midwestern tragedy and a current mystery haunting the Big Apple Meanwhile fears climb in Manhattan after the disappearance of a respected banker and family friend threatens the crippled financial industry and the pristine reputation of Lane's virtuous boss Mayor Fiorello Fio La Guardia Fio's fight to. Easily the best light read mystery I ve encountered this year This was an absolute delight I m not sure what I was expecting from this but I got than I bargained for in the best possible way The action and much of the plot is borderline absurd but I didn t mind a bit while reading this fun madcap romp set in 1930s New York and Detroit I m not sure Lane and the way others treat her is especially realistic for the era but the series is surprisingly well written the plot deliciously readable and propulsive and the characters though absurdist supremely lovable This is the ultimate escapist read if you love historical mysteries Can t wait for the next installment
