Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue
Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy and Sarah Brandt are not the only ones who have recently tied the knot. Family friend Mrs. O’Neill was delighted when ...more
I enjoyed the whole tale very much. There was a Christmas feel to it and little snippets of how Christmas was celebrated at that time. Trees, decorations and lights were beginning to appear and the stores had Santa and lots of toys just like today.
This was a fun installment that allowed me to get to know the secondary characters better without the influence of Sarah and Frank. Maeve takes it upon herself to agree to investigate t ...more

Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue finds Detective Frank Malloy and his new wife, Sarah Brandt Malloy, on a European honeymoon. These two have been the mainstay of the series from the start. Without their solid presence and direct approaches, the series seems to have had a less ...more
Ms. Thompson mentioned to the reader at the end of the book that this story was a 'Gaslight extra'. Her publisher wanted her to write a Christmas story featuring some of the important secondary characters and "fans have been nagging me to get Gino and ...more
Murder on St. Nicholas Avenue was a fun read. It takes place just before Christmas while Sarah and Frank are still honeymooning. While I missed Sarah and Frank I was glad for the change of pace and the opportunity for some of the ...more
One thing that makes this series so entertaining is reading how different things were in those days: the formality of everyday existence, the facades people hide behind in the name of propriety, the power the Deckers wield simply because they are r ...more
I enjoyed this book immensely the main characters are off stage until towards the end of the book. I enjoy Maeve handling everything and loved it when the grandparents got involved. I can't wait to see where this series goes now.
I really enjoy this series and this book provides the reader of this series with an interesting change of pace.

Not having Frank and Sarah investigate was torture! Although I like the other characters I didn't liked their investigation at all!
They were all over the place not interrogating the suspects properly and meeting for supper and share their conclusions and in Meave's case her dislike for a woman because of her feelings for Gino! And now I h ...more
I didn't think I would like it but it was not bad.
