Happy almost weekend all!
This was such a fun book a little history, a little mystery, a little Romance. Thank you so much Lisa for my invitation to this tour!⚾️
Rachel McMillan has written an authentic and atmospheric Mystery steeped in history. 1940s Boston Hamish and Reggie are a couple years into running their detective agency. Their newest client is a well known black baseball player who is being messed with. The racism and the criminal element on the cobblestone streets of Boston is really brought to life with McMillan‘s words. Throw in some major romantic tension and this book really had a bit of everything. The perfect balance of mystery, history, and romance.
This book really reminded me of the 1980s television show “Moonlighting”. Reggie was smart savvy and spunky and Hamish was shy and quirky. The sexual tension between them was palpable and I think that will be a fun storyline that will run throughout the series. The mystery was interesting but I think it was more of a social commentary on 1940s Boston especially when it came to racism and anti-Semitism. There was also that mobster/criminal element to the story that is expected I guess with a book with this setting and time. This was such an entertaining read and even though there were some dark spots it ultimately was full of hope. Perfect for anyone who loves a well told Mystery or romance that is fizzing with history! The book was a real gas!
