I was given a copy via Netgalley for an unbiased review.

After three months in Cordova, Charlotte is getting accustomed to frontier life. She is filing articles for the local paper--including a provocative editorial against Prohibition--and enjoying a reunion with her brother Michael, the town doctor and coroner. Michael's services are soon called upon when a fire claims the life of hardware store owner Lyle Fiske. A frontier firebug is suspected of arson, but when Michael determines Fiske was stabbed before his store was set ablaze, the town of Cordova has another murder to solve.

Charlotte is also falling for James the Deputy, but as Charlotte journalistic instincts kick in Charlotte seems to run gun hoe into the investigation which can upset and also hamper the investigation being done by James.

There are some great characters in this story, but the story does seem to stumble along, I wonder if the characters had had a more complex story it might have made it more interesting, but part way through this book and I felt bored, the story just doesn't seem to flow very well.

Murder mystery story that seems to not really grab my attention.

Format: Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of a Suffragette and journalist working in Cordova, Alaska. When a store owner dies in a burning building, Charlotte and others get involved in finding out what happened. There are plenty of local characters and issues which are fairly specific to Alaska. We also see the work of producing a newspaper at that time. A very understated romance is threaded through but this is a mystery first and foremost.

Due to some of the content I recommend the book for mature teens and adults.

I was sent an ARC and this is an unbiased review.

4.0 out of 5 stars good cozy mystery 17 July 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
4 Stars

I like this series. Charlotte Brody is a smart, strong character.and follows her own path. Though I find that I am more like the Chrurch ladies than her on issues.

Charlotte has come to Cordova in Alaska Territory to get away from home and visit her brother. She writes for local newspaper and articles she sends back to the States. She is fighting for ending prohibition, right to abortion and women right to vote.

She likes the deputy but has only flirted with him and shared some kisses. Charlotte wants to figure out who killed a local businessman. Along the way she gets into some trouble.

This is set in Territory of Alaska.

It is a good cozy mystery. Lots of interesting facts about life during that time. Interesting ending and want to see how that will work out in the future..

I look forward to reading more from Cathy Pegau in the future.

I was given this ARC to read for free from NetGalley and Kensington Books. I agreed to give a honest review of Borrowing Death.

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder on the Alaskan Frontier 15 July 2016
By omnireader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Borrowing Death opens shortly after the close of Murder on the Last Frontier. Charlotte Brody has decided to extend her stay in Cordova, a small town on the Alaska frontier. She has found a job reporting and typesetting at the local newspaper and is still sending her serial about frontier women to be published back east. She likes her job, the people of Cordova and seeing her brother, Michael, the town doctor, on a regular basis. She especially likes the handsome Deputy Marshal, James Eddington.

The novel opens with Charlotte's editorial about the Volstead Act, which would establish National Prohibition. Charlotte, as a free-thinking suffragette, thinks it is a very bad idea which will open the doors to all sorts of crime. She expects her editorial to stir up controversy in the town. It indeed does, but is eclipsed by a fire that guts the town hardware store and takes the life of its' owner, Lyle Fiske. Cordova has recently had a series of arson fires, but none have caused such property damage, much less loss of life. It is soon clear that it was not arson, but murder. Lyle Fiske and his wife, Caroline, have many secrets, but which of those secrets would lead to murder? Charlotte wants to find out and get the story.

The Charlotte Brody Mysteries are a nice mixture of history, mystery and just a little romance. I particularly enjoy the portrayal of the characters and setting. The social issues of the day have not changed very much in the ninety plus years since the era of the novel. Prejudice and discrimination are still with us, as well attempts to legislate morality and limit the rights of women. Despite the admitted failure of National Prohibition that Charlotte predicts in her editorial. Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books for an advance digital copy in return for an honest review.
