What an absolute gem of a book!

There's nothing better than finding a new series you can fangirl over and Pam Lecky's Lucy Lawrence mystery series is just that!

When we meet Lucy she is lonely and contemplating the rest of her life with her inattentive husband. She's stuck in the relationship after being cut off from friends and family because of their elopement, but she wants it to work out. I liked Lucy instantly. She is sweet, kind, though maybe a little naive. When she gets the unexpected news that her husband has been found dead, she is confused. He was supposed to be on a trip out of the country. How is he dead in London? Was it an accident or was he involved in something nefarious? Thus begins the investigation into Charles' death and in steps Phin Stone. How I adored that man! He's a no-nonsense, honest, and trustworthy investigator that comes to the aid of Lucy when all seemed lost.

Poor Lucy is taken through the wringer in this book - between her loveless husband, her punk of a brother, and odious sister-in-law, and then a dangerous criminal. But through it all, she stays strong and that's what I loved about her. The connection and repertoire between Phin and Lucy was great too.

Pam's writing is wonderful, the mystery will keep you guessing, and the setting jumps off the page!

I had a lot of fun with this book and cannot wait for the next one in the series! I need more Lucy!
