Eleanor Roosevelt helps a young girl whose parents want her to stop seeing the young man she intends to marry because his father has been arrested for financial scandal involving investments. She wants to prove that the young man has been framed. Unfortunately, the young man's father appears to have committed suicide, but Bob is sure that he has been murdered. As the plot develops other actual people like the newly appointed SEC Commissioner, Joe Kennedy become involved.

The plot has many twists
Eleanor Roosevelt was much more at the center of this mystery than in the first book of the series. But otherwise, they felt much the same. It's mostly the historical feel that is likely to keep me reading the rest, not the quality of the writing. The plot was fine, but the characters other than Mrs. Roosevelt and the president weren't really very well-developed.

I've read several of this series off-and-on over the years. I decided to read them in sequential order. This the second in the series. They are fun, light reading and I enjoy the history mixed in with true events taking place in that era.
It's good to know the President and his wife! Fun mystery that has Eleanor Roosevelt helping solve a complicated murder revolving around the beginning of the SEC regulations with lots of real life characters.
This was not one of my favorite reads. It dealt with market trading, etc. and there was just far too much Joe Kennedy for me. I like more Eleanor and less others as the story unfolds.
The Elliott Roosevelt mysteries are wonderful for letting you see into the life of Eleanor Roosevelt and the political times.
Enjoyed the historical setting and characters. Look forward to reading other Roosevelt mysteries
