By A. Ross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 26 July 2011
Format: Paperback
After enjoying the first "Libby Seale mystery" on a trip to Portland, I figured I'd pick up this sequel to see what happened to the seamstress heroine. The book is set in 1894, a few months after the events of Murder at the Portland Variety, and Libby has managed to find steady work at the home of a local paper magnate. Hiram Rose is the owner of one of the city's two paper mills, and when someone dies in his factory, Libby reunites with newspaperman Peter Eberle to investigate. Their relationship is a strained one due to certain revelations at the end of the previous book that put the kibosh on their budding romance, but they are able to work well as a team, with Peter running around town and Libby poking around the Rose household.

As in the previous book, there are plenty of suspects, plenty of story threads, and plenty of plots twists to keep the pages turning. Family secrets, an estranged son, and even a group of unhappy men laid off from the mill and replaced with cheaper Chinese workers. The first book gave some fun insider detail on turn of the 20th-century variety theater, and this one does the same with papermaking. The strong sense of time and place comes through vividly, and anyone familiar with Portland will get extra delight from the period details and location. It's not a great book, but it'll certainly fit the bill for anyone looking to curl up with a period mystery for a few hours. The final page of the book drops a huge revelation that will leave the reader wanting to immediately pick up the next in the series -- unfortunately, there is no next book!
