It took me a while to get into this book mostly because I haven t read any others in the series and since there have been than 20 clearly I ve missed a lot and also because for whatever reason I didn t realize that it s a turn of the century setting Once I figured that out though the dialog and interactions among the characters made total sense from then on reading it was uite an enjoyable experienceAt the beginning New York married couple Sarah nee Brandt and Frank Malloy she a midwife and he a private detective are hoping to adopt Catherine a child Sarah apparently has been raising how that came to be was I suppose the subject of an earlier book They learn that the man Catherine s mother was married to isn t her birth father and under the law only the real father has parental rights and can sign over his daughter to the Malloys Turns out he s Parnell Vaughn an actor in a small independent theater company and he s than willing to give up the child he neither knew nor wants anything to do with His actress fiancee though isn t about to let him give something for nothing ante up she demands or she ll put the kabosh on the dealEven though the real dad doesn t care about the money and such payments are illegal Frank agrees but when he returns to the theater with cash in hand he finds that Parnell has been brutally murdered Worse since Frank gets covered with Parnell s blood when he inspected the body and nobody else seems to be around Frank becomes the No 1 suspect Needless to say he didn t do it so he and his partner Gino with help from Sarah set out to prove his innocenceThere s no shortage of other suspects including the aforementioned fiancee a long in the tooth actress who refuses to give up ingenue roles and act her age her producer husband who would do anything to keep her happy and an agent who may have motives that are not in his clients best interests Helping to sort things out is Serafina another character from an earlier book or books as a medium she just may be able to conjure up insights that will help get to the truthThe action moves along uickly although it does get a bit bogged down here and there by too lengthy what if discussions among the characters The writing is interesting and true to the period and once in a while there s a touch of humor The only thing I was never able to figure out though is why Frank is referred to by his first name in some instances and his last name in others for a while I actually thought they were two different peopleStill I m happy to find this series a delightful combination of historical fiction and murder mystery For sure I ll be watching for the next installment Meantime I thank the publisher via NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance review copy

There s a bit of theater in all of usFrank and Sarah Malloy are the mainstay characters of Victoria Thompson s Gaslight Mystery series We re now entering 21 and I ve been locked in since the very beginning and always will beOur newly married couple have been through uite a lot of adventures and misshaps throughout the years and Victoria Thompson carves out very creative scenarios for them Sarah has taken her midwifery skills to a higher level and is now opening a renovated birthing center in New York City Frank has left behind his fine honed career as a police officer and is venturing out in his own detective business But their backgrounds won t prepare them for the next dilemma that awaitsThe enterprising duo wish to adopt their young charge Catherine who has been in their care for some time But legalities stand on terra firma as their lawyer explains that this adoption will not be as cut and dry as they first thought They must locate Catherine s legal but wayward father to give up his parental rights Parnell Vaughan has spent most of his life on the stage of many a theater rather than on the solid stage of fatherhood When Parnell s bloodied body is found dead in his dressingroom all eyes focus on Frank who may have been a bit forceful or not in persuading Parnell to sign those legal papersMurder on Union Suare is an enjoyable period piece by the talented Victoria Thompson While I ve pretty much been drawn in by all of them especially the earlier books this one seems to lack a bit of the pizzazz associated with the others The beginning is dry with excessive legal dialogue and not much set up for the warm relationship that exists with Sarah Frank Catherine and friends and family As the mystery unfolds overuse of uestioning techniues to disarm likely suspects repeats and repeats page after page Same characters over and over but just changing up the scenery now and then Don t get me wrong Murder on Union Suare is still a worthy read but it suffers from stilted episodes in its delivery and a tad bit of plot fatiguePerhaps the next one will return to the winning formula of the earlier books Just keep em comin Ms Thompson I ll always be a fan
