Blogging has fallen by the wayside lately, partly because we’ve had so much illness and partly because I’ve been doing a lot of reading. The series I wanted to tell you about today is the Molly Murphy Mysteries by Rhys Bowen. I actually stumbled upon one of these mysteries at the library in the new fiction section.
I don’t typically like mysteries actually because they are too factual and gritty without enough story and appealing characters. This series however, is a historical mystery series about Molly Murphy, a woman from Ireland, who decides to become a private investigator in America. This series is almost squeaky clean and thoroughly enjoyable. The best part is there are 16 books in this series and Rhys Bowen is still writing them! This isn’t her only series either. I’m about to start the “Royal Spyness” series.
If you like a female heroine with a lot of spunk and curiosity who can’t like a mystery go undiscovered, you will enjoy the Molly Murphy books.
