This second volume of the Sarah Kelling-Max Bittersohn mystery series carries forward the life of now widowed Sarah as working proprietor of a rooming house in what was once the mansion in which she lived with her now deceased husband and mother-in-law. Once again, murder strikes her household and, once again, Max is there for her to rely upon to carry the investigative burden.
It all begins when her most offensive renters falls from a subway platform to his death. Was one among her other paying guests in some way responsible. What did she really know about them? Would the publicity kill her little venture before it has a chance to build roots? There are surprises, indeed, as both she and Max pursue the truth. As always MacLeod provides a well-written text with characters into whom she instills distinctive characteristics which are revealed as her interesting story unfolds. This is good reading for those who have not read the first volume of the series, better for those who have.

I have read all twelve of the books, with pleasure, and many in the three other series she authored, as well as the occasional independent work she produced. Of course, they vary in quality but all are quite readable. They are not for the reader who seeks adventure, ardent sexuality, tough, gun-toting heroes, or the gritty streets of blighted urban areas, In today's lexicon, her works fall into the category of "cozy" The story was good but there were many punctuation marks in incorrect places and poor word usage.
From reading all this author's books over the year I think this was an issue in putting it into an ebook. She immigrated to the United States in and became a naturalized citizen in She spent most of her life in the Boston area and was a staff artist and copywriter at Stop and Shop supermarkets from to She also worked at N.
Her many books and series include the popular Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn team, as well as a detective named Peter Shandy. She wrote a biography of Mary Roberts Rinehart under her own name, and edited the anthologies Mistletoe Mysteries and Christmas Stalkings.
