Many thanks to NetGalley and to St. Martin's Press for the opportunity.Turning the pages of a new Molly Murphy Series book by Rhys Bowen is like experiencing the gentle swaying of a hammock on a warm sunny day.

      *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review from Netgalley and St. Martin's Press/Minotaur. All thoughts and views expressed in this review are entirely my own.*If you've been watching my account for the last six months or so you've seen that I've made my way through the entire Molly Murphy mystery series, and I've loved it. Rhys Bowen has such a talent for creating amazing characters and just as good murder plots, and this book was just as good!The characters are so incredibl [...]

      Once again, Rhys Bowen has written another delightful and suspenseful Molly Murphy Mystery. Molly Murphy, former lady detective, is happy to stay home with her toddler son Liam and her ward Bridie, the ten year old girl who Molly escorted from Ireland. Then her husband Daniel Sullivan, a captain with the New York City Police Department, is temporarily transferred to places unknown by the newly formed national security forces. Molly is beset with worry about his safety.When Molly sees her husband [...]

    4. Catherine

      I love this series and I think this one is my new favorite. The series itself is set in New York City in the early 1900's, but this book was mainly set in San Francisco. Molly's husband Daniel is recruited by the Secret Service to investigate some mysterious events, and eventually Molly ends up traveling there too with their baby Liam. I figured out pretty early on that Molly would be there during the 1906 earthquake. I've read some non-fiction books about that time period and have also visited [...]

    5. Peggy Parsons

      This is book #16 in the series and my first read. Bowen is a plot driven writer. The story line and events were great, but I was never, never pulled in. I felt like I was reading a children's book. Things always fell into place for her. Someone always bought her a meal, offered her a place to stay, and someone to watch her son to free her up to go sleuthing. For a woman who's just heard devastating news and knows there's danger, she was naive to trust all these strangers. She handed her son over [...]

    6. Carol

      Yea for this series. It seems lately I have picked books where the people are really not likeable and kind and interested in something other than themselves but this book broke that mold. Molly is up to her usual tricks of find trouble and getting right into the middle of it. Daniel is called away on a secret mission for the president of the United States. And after he's gone of a while Molly gets a strange letter from him that seems to say exactly the opposite of what the truth is. She decodes [...]

    7. Brenda

      I learned of this book while reading the latest in the series. Somehow I missed this book last year. With that knowledge the terror I would have felt with the situations Molly found herself in where lessened by advance knowledge but I none-the-less enjoyed this book.Daniel accepts an assignment with the Secret Service and finds himself undercover in San Francisco CA. Molly receives a letter from Daniel laiden with clues she reads as "come", setting Molly and Liam on a cross-country train ride. M [...]

      Only my second “Molly Murphy Mystery”. I like this series and certainly will read others. Unfortunately I read and finished this book while waiting 3 hrs 45 minutes at the DMV so I might have liked this book better if I were reading it in my cozy reading chair in my family room instead of a hard chair in a noisy waiting room.

    9. Stephanie

      This is the first book I have read by Rhys Bowen and I have to say I am not in the least disappointed with this story. I picked this up from the sixteenth in the series and while there were some holes for me about the character’s lives and what-not, this still made a great stand alone. I do love a good mystery and adventure. I got both in this story and more.I will begin with the atmosphere and period of the story. I loved it. I felt I was taken back to the 1900’s and the author gives a trul [...]

    10. PoligirlReads

      My previous concerns with Bowen is that she had painted (well, wrote) Molly into a corner: she's got these growing detective skills, but no outlet for them and an unsupportive husband that nobody, save for Molly, can stand. She did a good job of trying to rectify this situation. The big news is that she made Daniel more likeable. I felt 67% less like punching him in the nose, so that's definite progress. He shows respect for Molly's skills (finally!) by asking her to come out to S.F. to help him [...]

    11. Empress Reece (Hooked on Books)

      Molly Murphy Series - Book #16 If you are a fan of the independent Molly that spent more of her time detecting then catering to her husband, Daniel's every whim then you'll like this story. It really had a lot more of the Molly I've come to know and love. In the last several books, her role as a wife and mother overshadowed her role as a detective, but in this book we get to see a lot more of her independently without her very traditional husband putting his two cents into everything. This story [...]

    12. Susan

      Readers of Rhys Bowen's Molly Murphy series will not be disappointed. This newest mystery takes Molly and her young son across country to San Francisco in the early 1900's. Molly undertakes this cross-country journey when she receives a mysterious letter from her husband who is currently on a special assignment. Molly faces danger, corruption, murder and natural disasters with the intelligence and fortitude that Bowen's fans have come to expect from her. Even when it seems that she may lose what [...]

    13. ❇Critterbee

      Another edition in the Molly Murphy Mystery series does not disappoint. This time Molly is off to interact with another famous event / time period in history, with the usually harrowing experiences quickly following. I feel I can disclose NOTHING of the plot, because it would be impossible to do without tripping over spoilers. Still, I feel safe in saying that if you are a fan of this series, this title is a return to the solid story-telling and adventure that characterized the earlier editions. [...]

    14. Teresa

      This book had all the things I look for in a mystery! There were interesting characters, a well-done planting of clues, the great earthquake and fire in San Francisco and a main character that was easy to love.

    15. Mary

      Another great mystery featuring Molly (Murphy) Sullivan. Her husband takes a job that takes him to California, and he sends a cryptic letter that convinces Molly to take the baby, Liam, and go there to meet him. Fast paced thriller with a lot of action.

    16. Jan "don't blame me, I also voted for Hillary"

      Fun Molly Murphy mystery. She's an immigrant from Ireland in 1905, turned private eye. Searching for her husband in San Francisco, she experiences the excitement of Caruso singing there as well as the devastation of the Great Earthquake and fire.

    17. Jack

      Boring. Halfway decent plot, but falls into the common trap of its characters being mere automata, devoid of personality. An excellent cure for insomnia, though, that much I can say.

    18. Karen

      This book contains a very good story, but my maternal instincts keep kicking in and I want to yell at Molly for endangering her young son. :/

    19. Paul

      I've always been a fan of books that take place in America, especially, during an earlier period in time. This had been my first introduction to Rhys Bowen. I took a gamble and chose the latest of her Molly Murphy series hoping that it would stand on its own. I had my fingers crossed; I was not disappointed. This character-driven tale scattered thought-provoking seeds of curiosity from chapter to chapter that never relinquished my undivided attention. Our heroine and leading protagonist reacted [...]

    20. Joan

      This is an extremely light read, Molly, a retired detective, is now at home with her son and her husband gets an undercover assignment. She goes to the movies and sees taht there is a clip about a famous singer coming to San Francisco. She sees her neighbor and Daniel in the famous Hotel. Then she gets a scripted letter telling her that he needed her. She and her son travel on train from NYC to SF. On the train she meets the coordinator for the Caruso event. He has an extra room for her until sh [...]

    21. Shannon

      Under pressure to stay out of the limelight and protect his career, Daniel accepts an assignment from John Wilkie. Unable to confide in Molly the nature of the assignment, Daniel leaves with promises of returning within a month. Trying to make the best of the situation, Sid and Gus offer to keep Molly entertained during Daniel's absence. Sid and Molly attend a function getting to meet Mark Twain. Molly strikes up a conversation with Mrs. Endicott, and the two make plans for tea soon. When Mrs. E [...]

    22. Sarah

      Another excellent book by Rhys Bowen! I've really enjoyed the Molly Murphy series set in NYC, but it was refreshing to have Molly on an adventure across the country in California. I liked the dynamic with Daniel and love that Molly can still have adventures as a wife and mother! I can't say the ending was entirely satisfying, but I also realize that not all mysteries have to end the same way. Overall, a fantastic adventure!

    23. Lisa

      I've read them all, in order. This one gets 4.5 stars, really, for the great research and description of 1906 San Francisco and the interweaving of real characters (Schmitz, Funston) and historical events. The story and mystery were well done. Daniel was a more sympathetic character than in the last couple of novels. My only complaint is her running around and leaving Liam with near-strangers. Next time, leave him at home with Sid and Gus where he will be safe! :)

    24. Les Wilson

      I can't believe the author should make the heroine so stupid. Her police husband has been sent on a special mission. So what does she do, but shoot of to where she thinks he's working; running everywhere asking, "Have you seen my husband?" "He may not be using his proper name as he's on a mission. Does she not think for one moment that she could be putting his life at risk. The start of this story is so stupid I had to put it away, wondering how stupid she would get before the end of the book.

    25. Madeline Hoherd

      Likable characters (I tend to quit reading books involving unpleasant people) and a creative plot. The setting of San Francisco during the 1905 earthquake was what made me try an unfamiliar author. I only gave it 3 stars because the writing was not masterful. I do think, though, that I will try another one of Bowen's novels when I want something light and entertaining.

    26. Patti Abernathy

      Quick read. I enjoy Ms. Bowen's writing style. In this adventure Molly and Liam head west to San Francisco. The author did a nice job of keeping me guessing who were the good people and who were bad. I was sorry that Ms. Bowen did not include an historical note at the end. I always enjoy those! Anxious for Molly's next adventure (although I wish she would stop leaving Liam with strangers!)

    27. Cathy

      Loved it! What another adventure traveling across the country to San Fran in the 1900s. What a page turner. What emotion! What tragedy! Oh my! I was hooked immediately. Loved the grit and courage to survive!
