      Review written June 12, 20164.4 Stars - Another terrific installment.

      I loved the investigation in this one, the big revelation at the end got me all spooked. I also loved how the relationship between Nell and Will got deeper but they're still just friends.However, I do see some upcoming issues regarding their relationship and (view spoiler)[they probably won't get together until the 6th book, unfortunately. (hide spoiler)]I don't like when an author prolongs romance on purpose to create more conflict.

      It only gets better and better. I have been looking forward to read every single line of every book of the entire series. The Nell Sweeney mysteries introduced me to a completely new world of mystery novels. I have now finished the series, but I chose to write a review for this particular one because it is where I fully recognized the true potential of this saga. Nell Sweeney is a strong-willed, brave and wicked-awesome female lead. I despise reading books which give me the urge to say "grow a b [...]

      Murder in a Mill Town4 StarsWhen a young woman working at the Hewitt family mill disappears, her parents approach the Hewitt matriarch for help locating her and Viola, in turn, enlists the aid of her inquisitive governess, Nell Sweeney. As Nell begins to investigate, she finds herself confronting shadows from her past that not only put her position at risk, but endanger her life as well.The mystery is well-paced with Nell following clues and questioning witnesses. The identity of the villain is [...]

      I bought this as soon as I had finished the first one and tore through it like I did the first one. I haven't bought the next one yet, I don't want to go through them too fast so I'm going to re-read the first two before moving on to the third one. Plus now that we've gotten more of Nell's past, some surprising to me and some not, that had been hinted at in the first book, I want to re-read with that knowledge in mind.I had two characters I was suspicious of this time and one of them turned out [...]

    6. Rachel

      I never do this anymore. There are too many things to do in the day (not the least of which are looming academic deadlines) to even contemplate this. But yesterday I finished Still Life With Murder and immediately bought this book, the sequel, and proceeded to read it in a day. Granted, it was not exactly a long book, but in order to complete this feat of a book and a half in one day I had to forgo my daily research/writing goal, lunch, email, and laundry. I refuse to name which of those was the [...]

      Although GR calls this the 3rd book in the series, it isn't it is really the 2nd.When Bridget 'Bridie' Sullivan goes missing, no one believes that anything untoward has happened to her. She is a bit of a good time girl and everyone thinks she just ran off with her ex-con boyfriend. Everyone, that is, except her mother. Mrs. Fallon knows that Bridie wouldn't just run off, but no one will believe her. Desperate she turns to Mrs. Hewitt who is known to have a compassionate heart. And Bridie worked [...]

    8. Cheryl

      In some ways I actually liked this mystery more than the first and I like how the relationships between the characters are developing. I didn't guess whodunit until the end but I should have because it was the same guy that did it in the first book. The writing is so good though and both Nell and William Hewitt and other characters are so likable that it makes up for a lot of things. It was a fun read and very entertaining in spite of itself ***********SPOILER ALERT NOW************** There were [...]

    9. Chris

      I really enjoyed the first book in this series (Still Life With Murder), and I'm really glad to find out the second book continues all the things that I liked in the first. By a series of luck and coincidence Nell Sweeney has managed to rise from the Irish ghettoes of Boston to become the governess for one of Boston's Brahmin families and a bit of a private investigator for her boss. In this book we find out more about Nell's background - which I won't go into here as it would involve spoilers - [...]

    10. Marguerite Kaye

      My second Nell Sweeney book followed very quickly from the first, something I don't usually do, but I loved the first story so much I jumped straight in. And I loved this one even more! Now that the scene is set, and we've been introduced to Boston, Nell, Will and the Hewitts in the first book, there was more of a murder/mystery in this one, and much more time to concentrate on Nell's background. In fact, her past plays a major role in this story, and it's fascinating. I don't want to spoil it, [...]

      Nell what did you get your self into this time Oh she s just one hell of a character! Absolutely loved it! And I cannot wait for more

    12. Li

      The twists and turns continue in this second installment of PB Ryan’s Gilded Age mystery series. A good mystery + the beginnings of a romance = what more could I ask for?

    13. Edward Beavers

      Mystery is a treatPB Bryan gets better as this book shows at intricately spinning a story to add surprise at the last second with an ending to please the reader.

    14. Katie Bee

      I'm continuing to enjoy Nell's adventures. I regretted that there was less Viola in this book, since I enjoy her a lot - she's really only in the very beginning to give Nell a reason to investigate. But Nell and Will finally get to the point of 'no more secrets' by the end of this one, I think (unless there are more secrets yet to be divulged).It did feel a little short. I'm used to a few more twists in mystery novels, and not only do they add to the heft of a story, they also give room for alte [...]

    15. Andie

      This one gets five stars from me because of the excellent use of a third person unreliable narrator. It's been a long while since I've been stunned by a character revelation in a genre novel, particularly one that seems pretty obvious in retrospect. I love being surprised by genre novels.

    16. Terrie L Winkates

      Another great Nell escapadeA little slow to start, Nell finds herself in an impossible situation involving her jailed husband Duncan. Throw in past problems with certain members of the Hewitt family and you have an engaging mystery.

    17. Stephanie

      I was a little disappointed that there were as many typos as I found since I had to pay for this book (the first one was free). I'm purchasing the rest of the series. I can't put these books down.

    18. Tara B

      Nell Sweeney is a fiery Irish governess for the Hewitt family. I liked the characters and it was a nice quick read.

    19. Susan E. Elam

      A little bit of historyA good mystery that is set in my favorite area. It walks you through some of the tough times in the USA.

    20. Ashleah

      Pretty good but not as good as the first one. These aren't available at my local libraries, so I'll be buying the other books in the series about once a month until I'm finished.

    21. Sue Kimmet

      Nell Sweeney is an interesting character, as are those around her. The author has created a glimpse of history that adds plausibility to her story.

    22. Bekke

      Not quite as good as the first book in the series, but still an engrossing tale with (mostly) likeable characters

    23. Michelle

      I loved this book just as much as book 1. Why did I wait so long to read it? No clue, because I love everything about the series. First, Nell is my favorite type of heroine. She is strong, yet still vulnerable. She isn't perfect--there is quite a past to this lady--but she has come through the flames and made her life her own. Will is my favorite type of man, too. Strong, brave, yet very flawed, with a gooey marshmallow center. Anyway, in this one Nell continues to be a kick-ass governess and ev [...]

      Being in Mallorca my reading habits is slightly different. More like; you take what you have. I do have a small library here, but most of the books I have already read, but there are of course still some. It would not be me if there wasn’t a TBR shelf or two!Then there is the iPad where I save books for a day when no actual paper books are appealing. Being on a holiday it is nice with some easy going novels to spend the days in the sun. I subscribe to some newsletters who offers free or very c [...]

    25. Canela

      Almost as good as the firstAnother intriguing mystery, only now, more if the backstory into the heroine is revealed. Is there a romance brewing? You'll never guess who dunnit!

    26. Bridgett

      This is the second instalment of the Nell Sweenie mystery series. Yet again I have to say: I UTTERLY LOVED IT! I have actually shelled out the $6 for this book from the gift card I got!!! This is a big deal, since I am on a strict budget and think about everything I buy at least three times LOLIt was so totally worth it, that I went ahead and bought the next book in the series as well! (and am reading it now I think you can say I am hooked!)I just love Nell! She is trying so hard to be respectab [...]

    27. Elizabeth

      I enjoyed the first book in the Nell Sweeney series so much that when I finished it, I immediately downloaded this next book in the series and read it in a few short hours. Big mistake. I loved the first book so much that this one was a disappointment. That disappointment might have been mitigated if I’d not read it in such quick succession. Many of the aspects of the first book that I loved were present - the rich characters, particularly Nell and Will, the post-civil war setting, and the spa [...]
