4.0 out of 5 stars THE FOURTH INSTALLMENT IN THIS COZY MYSTERY SERIES..., 9 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Death at Devil's Bridge: A Victorian Mystery (Prime Crime Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the fourth in a series of period mysteries written by a husband and wife team under a pseudonym. The books are well-written and well-researched, replete with period detail evocative of a bygone era. The main characters are engaging, and with each passing book, the reader becomes more fully engaged with their lives. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mystery is intriguing, it is simply the framework around which the characters evolve.

The series now revolves around Lady Kathryn and her husband, Sir Charles Sheridan. Newly married, the inquisitive duo are now living in Kathryn's ancestral home at Bishop's Keep. When they agree to host an automobile exhibit and race with a hot air balloon show, attended by those most involved in the burgeoning auto industry, little do they know that murder and mayhem will soon follow.

When Sir Charles, an amateur scientist and heralded photographer, joins forces with his wife, Kathryn, an author of mysteries, they manage to unravel the secret of the death at Devil's Bridge, using their combined talents. Together, they are a formidable investigatory team, indeed.

It is of interest that these books always seem to include a historical personages or event that is intertwined into the mystery at hand. The historical notes at the end of the book are most enjoyable, as they allow the reader to understand the reasoning and research that went into such inclusion. In this case, they provide a lot of information about the early auto industry and those who were pivotal to its future success. For those who enjoy history, these end notes are an added bonus to these books. Those who enjoy the historical cozy mystery genre will definitely love this series.
