Andrea Haw | 1 comments Looking for a series. The woman works in as a copywriter or clerical help at an office. Her friend and neighbor is an artist who paints cover art for pulp stories. I think the lead is a widow or her husband is away in the service. I can't remember. I definitely remember scenes where the two go to beat poetry readings.

Do you remember any of the mysteries? And is it NY State or NYC? How old is the series--it started last year, the first book was printed 5 years ago, the last book was printed 25 years ago. When did YOU read it? How did you find it--a review, a personal recommendation for you, it was on the Our Staff Recommends shelf, the cover/back blurb grabbed your attention?

Paige Turner Mystery series by Amanda Matetsky seems to match your description.

Google search -- site:www.goodreads.com "mystery" "new york" 1950s


Andrea, what type of mysteries are involved - murder, blackmail, etc.?

Can you tell us more about the heroine - age, amateur detective, skills/interests, employer (large publisher/newspaper/small office/...), etc.?
