    There's a bit of theater in all of us. Frank 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 be. Our newly married couple have been through quite a...

    I received a copy of Murder on Union Square from Penguin?s First to Read. Murder on Union Square is the 21st book in Victoria Thompson?s Gaslight Mystery series featuring Frank and Sarah Malloy. In this entry, the couple is trying to adopt Catherine, a young girl they?ve take...

    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 more 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, t...

    Frank and Sarah Mallory planned to adopted Catherine in this long-running historical mystery but are stymied by a legal technology. Frank goes to see Catherine's legal father, Parnell Vaughn to sign papers relinquishing his paternal rights. He finds Parnell beaten to death and is accus...

    Fun, but dragged a bit toward the end, as if the author wasn?t quite sure how to wrap it up. I?ve read every book in this series and enjoyed most of them, and this was no exception. I thought I knew the murderer and motive, and I was right! Still satisfying and fun - a few chara...

    I love these books. I'm a huge fan of Sarah and Malloy and have loved following their evolving relationship as they solve crimes that are not exactly of the cozy variety. However, I must say that I feel the inclusion of Maeve and Gino has hurt the series. I'm also not a huge fan of Mal...

    Received free from Penguin First to Read, but my thoughts are my own. A man dies, and Malloy is the only one with a clear motive to want him dead. To clear his name, he'll have to find the real killer, which seems easy enough for a former police turned P.I. But motive proves illu...

    I'm a bit torn on this series, which I've loved since the first book. It seems that, since Sarah and Frank married, they've gotten soft. The early books were excellent, gritty mysteries, but the last several (since the wedding) have been more in the cozy category. I find that, while I ...

    AN exceptional book. Even though, this was my first ever gaslight mystery, I enjoyed it immensely. It was a hell of a ride. This book is a page turner and hooks you from the first page itself. It has amazing characters and unexpected plot twists, humor, and is at the same time an old s...

    MURDER ON UNION SQUARE, Victoria Thompson, 2018 By my count, this is the 21st entry in this "Gaslight Mystery" series--a very long series that hasn't gotten weaker as it goes along--in some ways, the stories are getting better, as more characters are added and the existing characters ...

    Another fascinating historical mystery set in New York City during the Victorian age of the early 1900's where Sarah a midwife and her new husband, ex-patrolman Malloy try to solve the murder of a young actor whom they have an acquaintance with through their ward Catherine. Murder on U...

    Yet another great read in this Gaslight series. I began reading this series many, many years ago and went through probably the first five or six just thrilled with the characters and the solid plots. Then, as you do, I just fell out of reading them, but I was lucky enough to have read ...

    I was very bored by this book. Ever since Sarah and Malloy got together, the books are getting less interesting. Plus when they finally revealed the killer, I didn't even remember that person being in the book. Too long and drawn out and repetitive. ...

    I'm a bit torn on this series, which I've loved since the first book. It seems that, since Sarah and Frank married, they've gotten soft. The early books were excellent, gritty mysteries, but the last several (since the wedding) have been more in the cozy category. I find that, while I ...

    Continuing this very appealing mystery series, Victoria Thompson has Sarah & Frank Malloy once again investigating a murder that hits close to home. As the Malloy's go through the legal process to legally adopt Sarah's ward Catherine (and the reason for Frank's good fortune a few ...

    Well written late entry into a series. Having not read the remainder of the series, this title was not at all confusing. The well developed characters and interesting plot will have me seeking out the series next time I'm in the mood for a cozy, historical mystery. would recommend for ...

    Another consistently excellent story in the Gaslight Mystery series! Thompson delivers thoughtful, suspenseful, and fascinating stories about the lives of Sarah, a midwife, her husband Frank, a former NYC policeman, and their family and friends. Fans have followed Sarah through the yea...

    AN exceptional book. Even though, this was my first ever gaslight mystery, I enjoyed it immensely. It was a hell of a ride. This book is a page turner and hooks you from the first page itself. It has amazing characters and unexpected plot twists, humor, and is at the same time an old s...

    Another light, but enjoyable read in the Gaslight Mystery series. Thompson continues to write stories that do not seem flat or stale, despite quite a few in the series with Sarah Brandt, now Malloy. This one involves a murder as they try to legalize their adoption of Catherine. Thanks ...

    MURDER ON UNION SQUARE, Victoria Thompson, 2018 By my count, this is the 21st entry in this "Gaslight Mystery" series--a very long series that hasn't gotten weaker as it goes along--in some ways, the stories are getting better, as more characters are added and the existing characters ...

    Another fascinating historical mystery set in New York City during the Victorian age of the early 1900's where Sarah a midwife and her new husband, ex-patrolman Malloy try to solve the murder of a young actor whom they have an acquaintance with through their ward Catherine. Murder on U...

    Yet another great read in this Gaslight series. I began reading this series many, many years ago and went through probably the first five or six just thrilled with the characters and the solid plots. Then, as you do, I just fell out of reading them, but I was lucky enough to have read ...

    I was very bored by this book. Ever since Sarah and Malloy got together, the books are getting less interesting. Plus when they finally revealed the killer, I didn't even remember that person being in the book. Too long and drawn out and repetitive. ...

    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 more 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, t...

    Fun, but dragged a bit toward the end, as if the author wasn?t quite sure how to wrap it up. I?ve read every book in this series and enjoyed most of them, and this was no exception. I thought I knew the murderer and motive, and I was right! Still satisfying and fun - a few chara...

    I love these books. I'm a huge fan of Sarah and Malloy and have loved following their evolving relationship as they solve crimes that are not exactly of the cozy variety. However, I must say that I feel the inclusion of Maeve and Gino has hurt the series. I'm also not a huge fan of Mal...

    Well, for me, this was not one of the better offerings in this series. While I loved catching up with the gang, the mystery bored me into skimming. I didn't care about anyone beyond our group of family and their friends. Meh... But I will be back for the next one--if only to have a...

    MURDER ON UNION SQUARE, Victoria Thompson, 2018 By my count, this is the 21st entry in this "Gaslight Mystery" series--a very long series that hasn't gotten weaker as it goes along--in some ways, the stories are getting better, as more characters are added and the existing characters ...

    Another fascinating historical mystery set in New York City during the Victorian age of the early 1900's where Sarah a midwife and her new husband, ex-patrolman Malloy try to solve the murder of a young actor whom they have an acquaintance with through their ward Catherine. Murder on U...

    There's a bit of theater in all of us. Frank 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 be. Our newly married couple have been through quite a...

    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 more 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, t...

    Fun, but dragged a bit toward the end, as if the author wasn?t quite sure how to wrap it up. I?ve read every book in this series and enjoyed most of them, and this was no exception. I thought I knew the murderer and motive, and I was right! Still satisfying and fun - a few chara...

    I love these books. I'm a huge fan of Sarah and Malloy and have loved following their evolving relationship as they solve crimes that are not exactly of the cozy variety. However, I must say that I feel the inclusion of Maeve and Gino has hurt the series. I'm also not a huge fan of Mal...

    I discovered this series about two years ago and quickly read all the books that had been published. The series was decent at first, but now reading it feels like a chore. Honestly, there have only been seven really good books out of twenty-one. One major problem is that only one bo...

    Well, for me, this was not one of the better offerings in this series. While I loved catching up with the gang, the mystery bored me into skimming. I didn't care about anyone beyond our group of family and their friends. Meh... But I will be back for the next one--if only to have a...

    I love this series and these characters. I've enjoyed watching Sarah and Franks relationship change and their families increase. Frank now asks for Sarah's help on the cases while still wanting to protect her. Waiting for the next Gaslight Mystery. ...

    This is a creatively, complex and thought provoking historical fiction cozy mystery. This book takes the reader in the theater during this time period. You will meet the cast of well crafted actors and actresses. You will meet managers and learn of the syndicate of the acting w...

    I have followed this series since the beginning and have enjoyed them very much. They are well written and it's been great to see how Frank and Sarah's relationship has developed and how they are now prepaing for the adoption of two of the children. I really skimmed through this book. ...

    I cannot believe it is book twenty one already. I can remember when they met, and Sarah was a midwife full time. Mrs Malloy was a dragon back then, and Frank hardly touched her hand. I swear it took ten books before he kissed her. They are married now, and Frank is rich which, at the t...

    Received free from Penguin First to Read, but my thoughts are my own. A man dies, and Malloy is the only one with a clear motive to want him dead. To clear his name, he'll have to find the real killer, which seems easy enough for a former police turned P.I. But motive proves illu...

    I'm a bit torn on this series, which I've loved since the first book. It seems that, since Sarah and Frank married, they've gotten soft. The early books were excellent, gritty mysteries, but the last several (since the wedding) have been more in the cozy category. I find that, while I ...

    Another consistently excellent story in the Gaslight Mystery series! Thompson delivers thoughtful, suspenseful, and fascinating stories about the lives of Sarah, a midwife, her husband Frank, a former NYC policeman, and their family and friends. Fans have followed Sarah through the yea...

    AN exceptional book. Even though, this was my first ever gaslight mystery, I enjoyed it immensely. It was a hell of a ride. This book is a page turner and hooks you from the first page itself. It has amazing characters and unexpected plot twists, humor, and is at the same time an old s...

    Another light, but enjoyable read in the Gaslight Mystery series. Thompson continues to write stories that do not seem flat or stale, despite quite a few in the series with Sarah Brandt, now Malloy. This one involves a murder as they try to legalize their adoption of Catherine. Thanks ...

    MURDER ON UNION SQUARE, Victoria Thompson, 2018 By my count, this is the 21st entry in this "Gaslight Mystery" series--a very long series that hasn't gotten weaker as it goes along--in some ways, the stories are getting better, as more characters are added and the existing characters ...

    Another fascinating historical mystery set in New York City during the Victorian age of the early 1900's where Sarah a midwife and her new husband, ex-patrolman Malloy try to solve the murder of a young actor whom they have an acquaintance with through their ward Catherine. Murder on U...

    Yet another great read in this Gaslight series. I began reading this series many, many years ago and went through probably the first five or six just thrilled with the characters and the solid plots. Then, as you do, I just fell out of reading them, but I was lucky enough to have read ...

    I was very bored by this book. Ever since Sarah and Malloy got together, the books are getting less interesting. Plus when they finally revealed the killer, I didn't even remember that person being in the book. Too long and drawn out and repetitive. ...
