Review: A Lesson in Love & Murder by:Rachel McMillan

 A Lesson in Love and Murder (Herringford and Watts Mysteries, #2)
About the Book:
From political danger to personal drama, life is about to get explosive...

The legacy of literary icon Sherlock Holmes is alive and well in 1912 Canada, where best friends Merinda Herringford and Jem Watts continue to develop their skills as consulting detectives.

The city of Toronto has been thrown into upheaval by the arrival of radical anarchist Emma Goldman. Amid this political chaos, Benny Citrone of the Royal North-West Mounted Police arrives at Merinda and Jem's flat, requesting assistance in locating his runaway cousin—a man with a deadly talent.

While Merinda eagerly accepts the case, she finds herself constantly butting heads—and hearts—with Benny. Meanwhile, Jem has her hands full with a husband who is determined to keep her out of harm's way.

As Merinda and Jem close in on the danger they've tracked from Toronto to Chicago, they uncover a sinister plot to assassinate presidential candidate Theodore Roosevelt. Will they be able to save the day and resolve the troubles threatening their future happiness before it's too late?

Independence, love, and lives are at stake in A Lesson in Love and Murder, the gripping second installment of the Herringford and Watts Mysteries series.


My Review:
 Merinda and Jem come together once again for another iconic mystery. A mystery that involves a missing person amid a political upheaval of sorts. Merinda accepts the case and poor Jem has got problems of her own. These two girls seem to always have something going and they are always in harms way but always seem to come out on top.

 The setting to this case takes place in the early 1900's and involves a plot to assassinate President Theodore Roosevelt.  Amid all the chaos these girls try to hang on to their love life gripping all craziness in their lives with both hands, will they manage to set the world upright again?

 This is second in the Herringford & Watts Mysteries series. It is just if not more gripping than the first. I cannot wait for the next one! The author has a talent unheard of in this generation. She gives us a plethora of good girls fighting the fight!
