Absolutely wonderful cozy and historical together with just a hint of romance! I couldn't put it down--I laughed, I cried and I immediately wanted more. The mystery was intriguing and just enough history of America's first Black Friday was thrown in that I want to research the event for myself. This is not the first book in the series and it is evident that events from prior books would increase the enjoyment of this one, but it worked also as a stand-alone story. I intend to collect these to be re-read and enjoyed in order.

I enjoyed this 5th installmanet in P.B. Ryan's historical mystery series starring Boston governess Nell Sweeney. I'd start with the first one though: STILL LIFE WITH MURDER.

Two of the Hewitt's acquaintances are found dead on Black Friday - the day there is a crash of the stock market because the government released gold. Dr. Will is a forensic investigator now and suspects the deaths are not suicide - Nell helps, of course.
Another fine read.
