  • Julie
    Murder on Trinity Place by Victoria Thompson is a 2019 Berkley publication. A perfect blend of history and mystery! This is yet another long running series that never seems to lose its charm. In this episode, Frank and Sarahs neighbor, Theda, hires Frank, after her father, a dairy owner, dies on New Years Eve. Initially reluctant to take the case without giving the proper authorities the chance to investigate, it soon becomes clear the police hav...

    There's always something odd about being normal.It's New Year's Eve in December of 1899. Throngs of people gather outside around Trinity Church in New York City. It's one of the old-fashioned norms of the holiday in which revelers listen to holiday music streaming from the church as they wait on the threshold of the new year.Private Detective Frank Malloy and his wife, Sarah, are wrapped in a blanket across their laps in their open air vehicle. T...

    Good book but finishing it made me sad. No more Frank and Sarah until next April! For someone who has been reading the series one a month for 22 months this is a dramatic moment!I have really enjoyed the whole series. I have learned a lot of historical fact about New York as well as enjoying the fictional characters who populate the books. As an example Murder on Trinity Place introduces us to the time before pasteurising when the milk children d...

    Frank and Sarah Malloy attend a dinner party at Mrs. Ellsworths home to celebrate the recent marriage of her son. His in-laws were there and Clarence Pritchard, Nelsons father-in-law, behaved rather strangely, leaving in agitation after no one shared his point of view about the upcoming year 1900 being the true new century instead of 1901. When Frank and Sarah run into him on New Years Eve outside Trinity Church, hes forcing his argument on every...

    Its no secret that Victoria Thompson is a favorite of mine - I was even lucky enough to meet her awhile back. I am so sad to have caught up with my favorite series, and will now have to wait for the next installments!The Gaslight Mystery series is my go to, and here we have another great mystery. I love playing detective along with Sarah and Malloy. The plot, character development, dialogue, and history are all exceptional, as always. If youre a ...

    I think it's time to say "goodbye" to another series! I started reading it last year and loved most of the books but lately I don't like much about the stories or the characters anymore!There's zero character development and the characters do the same things over and over again which is frustrating to read! I'm not invested as much as to torture myself with the next installment!I miss how Sarah and Frank were and how they solved mysteries togethe...

    I thought when I read the synopsis of this book that it would be a return to what made me love these books in the first place. I adored Sarah and Frank and watching their romance blossom. But I fear that these books are now suffering from "the Moonlighting Syndrome." They got married/together and now they are hopelessly boring. Sarah doesn't even investigate any longer. She founded a birthing center and spends a lot of time just talking about wan...

    This series have great characters and I love the family dynamic and crime solving in Victorian New York. I did learn something new ... swill milk. How disturbing was that? This was a quick read and had some good moments. Sadly, dialogues became too repetitive throughout the book, 2.5 stars.

The next morning Sarah and Frank are horrified to learn Pritchard was murdered sometime in the night.

    I was entertained from start to finish by the latest entry in this long running series.It's the end of one year (1899) and the start of the next (1900). Whether it is the turn of the century is open to debate. Clarence Pritchard is an avid (some would say rabid) proponent of the view that the 20th Century starts on 1 Jan 1900 and is not afraid to tell one and all. But could that belief have gotten him killed? He was last seen among the revelers o...

    Frank and Sarah Malloy are at Trinity Church for a New Years Eve celebration. While waiting in their new car, they see their neighbor's father-in-law, Clarence Pritchard, annoying many people with his talk of the new century. Frank tries to talk him into going home with them, but he refuses. The next day comes the news of Pritchard's murder. Nelson and Theda Ellsworth ask Frank to investigate the crime. But not everyone wants this case solved. So...

The police are not interested in solving this case. While searching for the answer, there is another death, the son of Mr. Pritchard. There are several clues to what happened. The ending is a surprise.There is information on milk delivery at the turn of century and the ca...

    I still love the books, don't get me wrong. But they have lost something since Sarah and Frank got hitched. This time, Sarah seems preoccupied with the clinic and the business of delivering babies, more than helping Malloy solve the murder(s) that take place. I miss that dynamic. I also figured out who the guilty party was and why, way too early. Decent book but not edge-of-the-seat and I think they lost some of the spark between the couple, and ...

    Predictable,but charming nonetheless.8/10.
  • Minx
    True Rating 3.5 stars!Murder on Trinity Place is the twenty-second book in the Gaslight Mystery series and has Frank and Sarah Malloy intimately involved in the investigation of the murder of a man that many had reason to dislike for his extreme honesty in his opinions about milk and the turning of the century. What had me excited to read this story was the husband and wife investigative duo of Sarah and Frank but, unfortunately, it was mostly Fr...
  • Karen
    I was annoyed at this mystery because it broke the rule of Chekhov's gun: The novel began with a brouhaha about whether the new century began on Jan. 1, 1900, or Jan. 1, 1901, but this idea then got dropped by the midpoint of the novel and never returned. That's irritating, and it made me grumble through the second half of the novel.I'm sad to say it, but I think this series ran out of juice a few novels ago. And that's fair enough -- 22 novels a...
  • Nattie
    I'm going to give Victoria Thompson a couple more chances to come up with something interesting to me in this series. Overall it was so good in the earlier days but after Sarah and Frank became rich things really took a giant nosedive. I don't give a crap about Gino and Meave and when books have too much of them in it it's an automatic thumbs down. The murder victim this time around wasn't even close to having an entertaining story.

    Synopsis: Sarah's neighbor has just gotten married and she and Frank are invited to dinner to meet the young bride and her family. Shortly after dinner the bride's father is murdered and Frank is asked to investigate the crime and discover who killed his neighbor's father.Rating:4/5This is a series I have been grappling with my feelings on. I have read all of the books in the series but the last few were lackluster at best for me. I was debating ...

    Another enjoyable outing with one of my favorite cozier historical mystery series- Ive read every book, and am rarely disappointed. This book opens as 1899 is closing and the New Year will bring a new century.Frank and Sarah Malloy are at Trinity Church to celebrate the New Year when they see a relative of Mrs. Ellsworth, long-time friend and neighbor, acting strangely. Clarence Pritchard is confronting revelers and ranting about when the New Yea...

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Berkeley Publishing Group through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. The book will be published on April 30, 2019.Number 22 in the Gaslight series, this installment has Frank and Sarah Malloy investigating the murder of the ultra-honest, but somewhat fanatical owner of the Pure Milk Dairy on New Years Eve in 1899. Thompson always sets her mysteries within an intere...

    This latest mystery begins with 1899 coming to a close and a New Year's celebration to welcome 1900 at Trinity Church. Frank and Sarah notice the father-in-law of their neighbor acting strangely, and the next morning he is found dead in the churchyard. After finding out the police chief has been paid not to investigate the murder, Frank takes on the case at the urging of the victim's family.

    In this newest book, Sarah and Frank Malloy are asked to look into the murder of the father of a friend. The book is set at the end of 1899 and the beginning of the new century,1900. The murder investigation is hindered by the lies people keep telling. One of the interesting thing about the story was the use of an automobile and how it is viewed by the people of the time as compared to the present time(2019). The book was a quick easy read.
  • Merle
    There's still life in this series, even though there is more focus on younger members of the group. Nelson Ellsworth and his wife take center stage here, as her father becomes a victim. Mr. Pritchard owns Pure Milk Dairy and his very clean business becomes a focal point for many ugly things. A subplot turns out to be delightful, with a young "fallen" woman from a very good family finds a new life with an unexpected hero.A nice touch is the "Check...

    This is the first Gaslight Mystery I've had the chance to read. I don't usually start a series from anywhere but the beginning because I don't like to miss out on world building and character development. I can say, however, that not having read the previous 21 books didn't detract from the story. There were a few things referenced that were unfamiliar to me but in no way caused me to be confused or lack understanding of the current goings-on in ...
  • Melissa
    An enjoyable series that is generally a quick read. I like how the characters have evolved since book #1 . I'd like to see Mother Malloy get involved in solving mysteries-I feel like she hasn't had the chance to grow like Sarah's mother and even Maeve. I had never heard of "swill milk" so I do appreciate the historical aspects added into the story."The year of 1899 is drawing to a close. Frank and Sarah Malloy are getting ready to celebrate the N...

    Another entertaining installment; a perfect blend of mystery and historical fiction. Can't believe I'm finally update to date with the series. I have loved listening to all audios over the last several months and will miss Sarah and Malloy until the new release.
  • Linda
    Frank and Sarah Malloy are now happily married secure in their family structure and secure financially, they even own a motor car. In short, they're a little boring.So is this book.Victoria Thompson sets it as a 1899 becomes 1900 and uses a dairy owner with recent memories of the New York City milk wars as a backdrop and it's very interesting. So is the description of what it takes to ride safely in the car reaching speeds of 10 MPH. No seat belt...
