I hadn't read any by Churchill before so thought I'd give this series a try. I really enjoyed the setting & the main characters. I'll definitely be reading the others in this series.

A good first book in the series. It was interesting to find what amounts to historical references to the Depression and events my mother related to me.
It will be interesting to follow the character development.

Great start to a new series. Lily and her brother Robert inherit a home from a little known uncle during the depression. The conditions of the home ownership are a bit murky, but the town has a few secrets revealed when a man is found murdered in their kitchen.

The first in a series featuring a sister and brother who solve mysteries during the Depression in NY state. Evocative scenes of life at that time and enjoyable main characters.

I enjoyed the first book of this series and really liked the female lead character. Her brother seemed to need some fleshing out as a character, so we will see if that happens in the coming books, or if he is meant to be a side character, rather than a main character, as it appeared when the series began.

A quick, fun cozy!

I like anything Jill Churchill writes and I wish she were still publishing her books. This is a gentile mystery series set during the Great American Depression and chronicles the trials of a brother and sister who are barely able to eke out a living. Inheriting a distant relative's estate is a blessing even if they must leave New York and live in the house in a small town to reap the monetary benefits. Nice cozy mystery series with likable characters.
