5.0 out of 5 stars It was about time Malloy....I DO! 7 May 2013
By a girl at the cafe - Published on
When Victoria Thompson announced Frank and Sarah will be getting together in this book it became the longest year of my life. I was eager to get my hands on it. All I can say is I LOVE IT. It was fast paced, I had to stop at one point and take a break. I felt it was taking me through twists and turns and it kept surprising me. I have to admit that I was afraid of two things: that it would be too sappy and maybe out of character just so they can come together and therefore not credible. Not because I don't think highly of the author because I do think very highly of her, but because she had express her distress about how to bring them together after throwing so many obstacles at them. But Ms.Thompson should be very proud of this book. Every character stays true to themselves but you see the BEST of each of them. Mrs. Malloy had a great scene with Sarah where you see the smart woman she is and how capable she is of being objective and see things in the right light putting her feelings aside. I have to say I even grew fond of the new characters and the villains were incredibly interesting. And of course Sarah and Malloy! All I can say it was perfect the way they come together, IF you REALLY have read all the books and know their personalities you know this was perfect. I was worried I would feel to satisfied and not interested in more. But heck no! yes there's a bit of closure but MS Thompson left a door open for a new chapter of adventures , I cannot wait to see these two trying to solve murders as a couple. GOOD JOB MS THOMPSON.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of her best 11 May 2013
By Annie Flemming - Published on
I lost sleep over this book. I could not put it down as I kept reading to see what the next twist was. The plot was tight and the characters given depth without a lot of extra embellishment. The setting in New York and the social mores of class relationships supported the action without heavy handed judgement about right or wrong.
I liked the growth of the relationships among all the characters. The good in the characters came out in the end, especially in the Brandt family. Sarah had to have good parents to be as smart, independent and caring as she is. The clues about the murders were well thought out. The victims were real characters who rated sympathy and understanding.
The ending was very well done. Almost happily ever after but lots of room for more books about Sarah and Malloy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 7 May 2013
By Kat - Published on
"Murder in Chelsea," the latest Gaslight Mystery and probably one of the most anticipated due to Ms. Thompson's promise of our heroes, Frank and Sarah, finally overcoming their differences and finding a way to be together, was everything I could have hoped for and more.

As usual, Ms. Thompson weaves a thrilling and exciting mystery, perhaps one that is slightly more anxiety inducing than the previous novels, if my rapid pulse and held breath while reading was any indication. I highly enjoyed the plot, especially the interaction between the many characters. I only had two complaints; however, neither of them being bothersome enough to assign anything lower than a 5 star rating. First, I found myself guessing the culprit almost immediately, and secondly, I felt the pacing of the novel was off; it felt almost rushed. That being said, the pacing issues could have stemmed from my own eagerness to reach the end and find out how Sarah and Frank will live happily ever after.

Now to Frank and Sarah's relationship, one of the most enjoyable aspect of the series. I, like most readers have been dying for the two to get together since Frank was trying to peek at Sarah's ankles in "Murder on Astor Place." I positively squealed when I read months ago that Frank and Sarah would finally get together, even participating in the contest to guess how it would be accomplished. I was terribly off the mark, but I am thrilled that I was! I melted at how they got together and will be swooning all day. It was a perfect happy ending.

With all that said, I highly recommend "Murder in Chelsea." Not only to the old fans (who need little encouragement) but to the new readers as well! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did and I cannot wait for the next installment!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing with a surprise ending. 8 Jun 2013
By S. Schwartz - Published on
I did enjoy this latest Sarah Brandt mystery, but I have to admit that I figured out the murderer(s)? early on in the book. But that did not spoil the book for me as I so enjoy Ms. Thompson's writing and her fast-paced plotting. And the ending was a wonderful surprise too. Ms. Thompson's sense of time and place is spot on and she portrays her era (New York City-late 19 century) very convincingly. I really like Sarah Brandt and Frank Malloy. They make a formidable crime-fighting team. This book delves into the life of Sarah's ward - 4 year old Catherine, and we find out how she ended up as a foundling in the settlement home for women where Sarah Brandt volunteers. Unfortunately, Catherine's resurfacing past puts her in grave danger and Sarah and Frank must protect her from those who want to harm her. We are also treated to a closer look at Sarah's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Felix Decker. It was nice to see a bit more of them in this book. This is an excellent historical mystery series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid mystery 5 Jun 2013
By Maureen A. Boehm - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mystery story itself is good but character of Sarah's father needed to be more developed. Why has he changed his mind so completely regarding Frank? Class and status issues were very strong at that time and more plot/character discussion needed to explain his complete change of heart. It is not enough to show that Frank earned his respect. To let his daughter marry a policeman was a radical move for the times.
