Book in the The Victorian Mystery Series Series). Death at Whitechapel (Robin Paige Victorian Mysteries, No. 6). Robin Paige. Death at Epsom Downs (Victorian Mystery).

The third in the series finds our heroes married and still living in Bishops Keep. The interest of the neighbor's son in early cars takes center stage as balloon and car chase comes to town along with Rolls and Royce. Several cars are in the race -electric steam and gas powered- with very antagonistic drivers. The balloon is sabotaged and then there is a deadly car wreck. Were these accidents or intentional murder? Much more science than usual with actual fingerprints and microscopic evidence used in detail. Very engaging look at early forensics. Love these characters and the guest star approach to each mystery.

LOVE this series. IF you are into Edwardian and Post-WWI Downton Abbey, you might really like this series. Detailed research into historic, political, and architectural history enhances the excellently plotted storylines. Historic characters abound, and are brought to life for modern readers. Since I also read histories of this era, I can say I haven't seen a 'misstep' historically. THANK you for the people I have grown to love. Not for everyone, though. You have to love a more cozy mystery (vs. say a graphically explicit action-suspense story like NCIS, or something). And, you sort of need to like 'details' that some might say bog down the action. I LOVE more classic mysteries like Agatha Christie, P. D. James, and Colin Dexter's Morse. Recently, I also like Sheila Connolly's series titles. THIS fits right in with those.

This is the 4th book in the Victorian Mystery series by Robin Paige. Kate and Charles have married, though his family, particularly his mother, are not pleased about his choice of wife. They are asked by their dear friend, and motorcar fanatic, Bradford Marsden, to host a chase race, where the motorcars will compete to find a hot air balloon's landing spot. A local man, who apparently has died of natural causes, is found, but the locals feel that he may have been frightened to death by a motorcar. We meet Mr. Rolls and Mr. Royce prior to their joining forces to build British motorcars. The balloon is sabotaged and Kate joins the chase to find her husband. During the race, one of the competitors is killed and the death appears suspicious. Charles and Kate work together to solve the mystery. We get to see Amelia (Kate's maid and now housekeeper) and Amelia's husband, who works for Marsden. While I found the historical detail fascinating, especially around the cars and the variations on how they were powered and engineered, I didn't enjoy this one as much as the ones earlier in the series. It was still good, and I will definitely read the next in the series.

Death at Devil's Bridge was another in the Victorian mystery series by the author duo Robin Paige. These books are a very enjoyable read and are highly recommended.

I found this book interesting more for it's description of a pivotal period in the history of modern technology than for it's mystery and mayham. The book provides a dramatic picture of the early history of the automobile and of flight and of the social turmoil that this incipient technology caused for the average person. I also enjoyed the descriptions of various social groups, for their varied reactions to the new technology but more importantly to one another in the venue of what would shortly become, as the reader is aware, massive social change. The book is an interesting take on change as well as a good "who-dun-it."

I'm very much enjoying this series of books by Robin Paige. I'm almost finished with them and will likely look into other books she has written. It's about an American woman who marries an Englishman interested in crime solving. They work together and make a good team.

This is a series co-written by Susan Albert Wittig (author of the STUPENDOUS, entertaining and herb lore informative China Bayles series), and her husband. Set near the turn of the 20th century, Strong female lead character, which I always enjoy, humor, they lace the stories with historical figures and true history. VERY WELL DONE. VERY SORRY they ended the series...I will miss these characters.
This series of mysteries by Susan and Bill Albert,AKA Robin Paige, are fun to read and you meet a real historical or literary character too. Susan writes mysteries under her own name so does the plot. Bill does the historical research needed, and it's a perfect fit. Time period covered in the series is 1880s to early 1900s. Another plus is the attention paid to new developing forensic methods, like fingerprint IDs, that are taking place. Enjoy.
