In a new mystery from Agatha Award-winning author Edith Maxwell,
midwife Rose Carroll confronts a killer on the cusp of a new age . . .
As the nineteenth century nears an end, midwife Rose Carroll can see signs of progress and change everywhere in her Amesbury community. Adding to the excitement is the annual Spring Opening, when the town’s world-famous carriage manufacturers throw open their doors to visitors from all over the globe. This year’s festivities are tainted, however, when a representative from a prominent Canadian carriage company is murdered.
Driven by her strong sense of justice, Rose is determined to track down the killer. She has only just begun her investigation when she learns that the plans for a radical new horseless carriage have gone missing. Faced with the question of whether the two crimes are connected—and a list of suspects that includes some of Amesbury’s own residents and any number of foreign visitors—Rose has to delve into a case with implications for the future, even if the motive for murder is one of mankind’s oldes.
About The Author
I hate to say goodbye, as I have enjoyed this series, and being with Rose Carroll Dodge, as she goes about her midwife duties and everyday life. Unfortunately, there is usually a body that shows up, and our Rose uses her sleuthing ability to help solve another murder.
The author has given us such a great series, we get a look into the Quaker religion, and a look at life in the nineteenth century New England!
There is excitement in the Town of Amesbury as they welcome Spring Opening, and show their world famous carriages. There is also talk of a new invention of a horseless carriage, and then a murder.
Come and travel in Roses shoes as she bring in new lives, and says goodbye to a dear friend, and embarks on a new adventure!
This book can be read alone, but we do meet up with a lot of old friends from previous books, and they are all equally good!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Beyond The Page, and was not required to give a positive review.
