Gaslight Mysteries

I can't remember how I ended up buying the first book of the Gaslight Mysteries, Murder on Astor Place. But I really enjoyed the book and I decided to buy a few more. I read Murder on St. Mark's Place last week and Murder on Gramercy Park in the last two days while I was home with my little one and his stomach virus. I was going to say "the latter was my favorite" but that would sound like I meant the virus -- which I definitely did not enjoy! These books are set in New York City in the late 1800's and the mystery solvers are a police detective and a midwife. The books are easy to read and engaging, with a good mix of suspense and humor. Next on my list is Murder on Washington Square...
