Let me into how one heroine feels with unhampered description dialogue and originality and I am carried away I am pleased to find authors who achieve this balance and surprised by Murphy I m unwell today so my review will not be as scintillating as usual I m kidding But I have to remind myself that reading this book made me forget my illness This book is just what the doctor ordered It s to my complete iking I Her Cowboy Hero (Refuge Ranch loved that the author didn t tarry on the many architectural upheavals of post famine New York Some authorsike Ian Rankin know how to describe a city However many of these authors fail in maintaining the plot to the fore and core But I Un hros pour Rayne (Delta Force Heroes t. 1) liked Murphy s Law as there was no padding to it It s a rare if not uniue feeling to see this kind of author I m definitely going to read some of the seuels to this one Now to another book Ta Sadly wasn t a fan Love the other authors series but I just couldn t get into this one at all Iistened to the audiobook of this one and was so grateful that the narrator managed to do her Irish accents without sounding ridiculous Talented indeedRhys Bowen is also talented especially at setting an historical scene and describing how people went about their daily Mine to Take (Nine Circles, lives The ship s crossing from Liverpool to New York was beautifully done as wasife in New York itself Of course Molly s experiences were not strictly run of the mill she had so many strokes of blind His L.A. Cinderella luck in this book that it was necessary to totally suspend belief much of the time But that s the way of a cosy mystery and it still makes for an enjoyable reading experienceIiked it anyway and will continue with the series which should give me many many hours of future reading pleasure Really enjoyed that one So much so that I m going to treat myself to 2 Light reading but very entertaining Another entry into my historical mystery jag this one was VERY similar to the other series I read but for some reason I enjoyed it a bit A Groom for Greta (Amish Brides of Celery Fields, less which surprised me because Iike this author s other historical series set in the 20 s a The Baby They Both Loved lot Basically it started out really well the heroine s journey to America but for some reason after that she was a BIT too perfect and spunky for my tastes And theove interest was really thinly drawn which is probably my biggest criticismThere s some interesting historical research though especially to do with the Irish in NYC that I Murphy's Law is the captivating first entry of Rhys Bowen's New York Times bestselling Molly Murphy seriesMolly Murphy always knew she'd end up in trouble just as her mother predicted So when she commits murder in self defense she flees her cherished Ireland and her identity for the anonymous shores of America Whe.
