Having devoured Rachel McMillan's first book featuring Hamish and Reggie, I was over the moon to get a chance to read an ARC from NetGalley. I devoured this sophomore novel as well.
We return to Boston, and encounter Hamish and Reggie trying to give their detective business a go. I don't want to spoil any plot points, but there are a number of twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I love Hamish's anxiety-ridden character juxtaposed with Reggie's innate strength. McMillan has crafted characters that leap off the page, and stay with you long after you finish reading. These two are a dynamic duo of a kind I haven't encountered before, and they're a pleasure to follow through Boston's cobbled streets.
I'm drawn in by McMillan's meticulous research of the era; I feel transported to a time and place gone by. I can't recommend this series highly enough. But be sure to start with MURDER AT THE FLAMINGO!
