I am enjoying this series, although this one not my favorite.

I have read these books via audiobooks and was disappointed and distracted by the new narrator, Suzanne Toren. Her style is so different from the previous narrator, Callie Beaulieu. Toren's voice portrayal of Frank Malloy suggests an almost totally different character -- much more gruff, rough; less sensitive, thoughtful. I think Toren is the narrator for the rest of the series, so I hope I get used to her.

Sarah and Mr Malloy investigate a case of a possible poisoning with the help of Maeve and Gino. A good story that involves a back story of the man?s mother and her Southern background. We learn the man?s grandmother poisoned him to keep the family?s good name. Sarah and Mr. Malloy finally get married at the end of the book. Goodreads: In this Gaslight Mystery from the national bestselling author of Murder in Murray Hill, midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy investigate foul play in the secretive high-society world of nineteenth-century New York City In the midst of Sarah and Frank?s wedding preparations, Sarah accompanies her mother on a condolence call to the Upper West Side, where Charles Fairfax, the son of family friends, has died unexpectedly after suffering from a mysterious disease. It is a tragic and all too common storyÂ¥or so it seems. Charles?s father asks to speak with Sarah privately. He believes his son was poisoned and would like Sarah and Frank to look into the matter with the utmost discretion. Putting their own personal affairs on hold, Sarah and Frank soon learn that not everyone wants to know more about Charles?s death, particularly if he was murdered. As they unravel secrets that reach back to the War Between the States, they also discover that they are in the company of a very present danger… (lisätietoja)

Another fun, but disturbing subject which ended for all involved. Goodreads: When facing injustice, the residents of nineteenth-century New York City?s tenements turn to midwife Sarah Brandt and Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy to protect their rights. Now, as the Edgar? and Agatha Award?nominated series continues, the two must track down a cruel criminal preying on the hopes and dreams of innocent womenA Gaslight MysteryFrank Malloy has never known any life other than that of a cop, but his newfound inheritance threatens his position within his department. While trying to keep both his relationship with Sarah and his fortune under wraps, he?s assigned to a new caseÂ¥finding a missing young woman for her worried father, Henry Livingston.It seems the girl had been responding to ?lonely hearts? ads in the paper for months before she disappeared. Her father thinks that she?s eloped with a deceptive stranger, but Malloy fears the worst, knowing that the grifters who place such ads often do much more than simply abscond with their victims. But as Sarah and Malloy delve deeper into a twisted plot targeting the city?s single women, it?s their partnershipÂ¥both professional and privateÂ¥that winds up in the greatest peril… (lisätietoja)

Another fun read. So many possible suspects. Malloy proposes at end of book. Goodreads: Sarah Brandt is shattered when she learns that a woman has inquired at Hope?s Daughters Mission for Catherine, the abandoned child she has taken as her daughter. The woman claims she was Catherine?s nursemaid, now acting on behalf of the girl?s mother to reunite them.Unwilling to simply hand Catherine over to a complete stranger, Sarah asks Malloy to investigate. But when he goes to interview the woman at her tenement in Chelsea, he finds she has been murdered.Though her death leaves Sarah?s claim to Catherine unchallenged, her sense of justice compels her to work with Malloy to find the killer. Their search takes them from the marble mansions of the Upper West Side to the dilapidated dwellings of lower Manhattan and into the deepest and darkest secrets of Catherine?s past.And while Malloy helps Sarah determine the fate of the child she loves, he faces a challenge of his ownand his decision could change both their lives forever… (lisätietoja)
