I'm "sort of" enjoying the Francesca Cahill series - the basic stories are good, but they seem to take an eternity to tell! Do we really need minute-by-minute descriptions of EVERYTHING that happens to Francesca???

The second installment in Joyce's romantic historical mystery series featuring Francesca Cahill, self-proclaimed Crime-Solver Extraordinaire, takes place between January 31 and February 4, 1902. A woman gripping one of Francesca's new business cards accosts her on the street and ensnares her in a murder investigation that once again teams her up with New York City Police Commissioner Rick Bragg. The man Francesca finds shot dead in his mistress's home is none other than the father of Bragg's bastard half-brother, Calder Hart, who is also one of the wealthiest men in New York. Although her wealthy socialite parents are vehemently opposed to her involvement with Bragg, they see Hart in a totally different light. Joyce's suspenseful tale and Francesca's earnest sleuthing may appeal to readers of the Fremont Jones series by Dianne Day if they don't mind a little explicit sex involving secondary characters.

I haven't read the first book in this series, but I didn't have any trouble understanding what was going on in the story. This was cute -- I like Brenda Joyce.

A great follow-up to Deadly Love. Francesca is a heroine that everyone can relate to and Bragg is a hero that anyone could love. I love romantic mysteries and this is one of the best!

Someone gave me this book. I haven't read it, thus can't rate it. Oddly though, while the book is in good shape, the pages are darkened as if it were an older book. No damage otherwise...just so you know beforehand.
