Book: Murder in the City of Liberty

Author: Rachel McMillan

Genre: Christian Fiction, Historical

Release Date: May 21, 2019

 

Hamish DeLuca and Regina “Reggie” Van Buren have a new case—and this one brings the war in Europe dangerously close to home.

Determined to make a life for herself, Regina “Reggie” Van Buren bid goodbye to fine china and the man her parents expected her to marry and escaped to Boston. What she never expected to discover was that an unknown talent for sleuthing would develop into a business partnership with the handsome, yet shy, Hamish DeLuca.

Their latest case arrives when Errol Parker, the leading base stealer in the Boston farm leagues, hires Hamish and Reggie to investigate what the Boston police shove off as a series of harmless pranks. Errol believes these are hate crimes linked to the outbreak of war in Europe, and he’s afraid for his life. Hamish and Reggie quickly find themselves in the midst of an escalating series of crimes that seem to link Boston to Hamish’s hometown of Toronto.

When an act of violence hits too close to home, Hamish is driven to a decision that may sever him from Reggie forever . . . even more than her engagement to wealthy architect Vaughan Vanderlaan.

My Review

If you like mysteries and detective stories, Murder in the City of Liberty brings all the elements of the genre together in a 1940 Boston crime venue. Reggie Van Buren and Hamish DeLuca join in an unlikely venture to save their city from the corrupt vices of organized crime. McMillan does an excellent job of leaving the reader in suspense until all the pieces line up.

McMillan is a new author to me. I love her use of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (one of my favorite novels) as lessons on solving problems and focusing on solutions.  Her characters come to life exposing their flaws alongside their charm, wit, and enthusiasm for life in the city.

I plan on reading more of McMillan’s novels in order to fulfill my desire for captivating mystery.
