Fan of the Canadian Murdoch Mystery tv series, this book's my first read of a Murdoch Mystery novel. Written by British born author, Maureen Jennings, currently a Canadian resident and situated in the metropolis of Toronto in Ontario during the 19th century . As with the series, it is well researched and detailed to the Victorian era, though not an easy topic to read.
What I did appreciate by reading the novel over viewing the show was the opportunity provided for insights into Murdoch's thoughts both in his profession and relationships. Especially as this novel covers the dissolution of a current romance and possibilities of new pursuits. It also introduces new directions with the departure of his landlords to Muskoka for health reasons.

Adding to my library reading list for future reserves.
