    I had bought this second in the series before I started the first Turns out I was not such a fan of book one but I believe writers improve and there were some things I liked about the first in the series So I plowed ahead Well, same rating because I just can t whip up the enthusiasm for 4 stars I like the setting enough, I like the main charactersenough, clearly the author has done her research and I applaud that and it s also the only thing that approaches 4 5 stars The plot of this one is slightly better There is a missing child who witnessed a murder so the pacing in this one is better But overall these just miss the mark for me The plot is too loose, the side elements main character s love interest to ignored All in all it just felt like ...

    This was fun It was a Netgalley selection, so to them I give thanks As I ve said before I never know quite what I m getting with Netgalley books, so it s a happy thing to find something this good This is the second book in its series, but was fine to read on its own enough information was skillfully provided about what went before that I m only slightly spoiled for the first book, and I definitely want to read it Score one The hero of the series, Professor Ben Bradshaw, is almost a typical absent minded professor He is obviously brilliant, but not socially adroit he lives in 1904 Seattle with his eight year old son and their housekeeper, Mrs Pouty, a tartar if there ever was one she cares about her charges, and won t hesitate to prove it by verbally beating them about the head and shoulders On the outskirts of their household is Missouri, the bluestocking niece of an old friend for whom Ben helplessly carries a very bright torch, which for various reasons not all of which are entirely clear to me he tries very hard to extinguish Into a momentarily placid existence wanders one morning a horse, discovered in the passageway behind the house hitched to a patent medicine seller s wagon and eating the beans from Mrs Pouty s garden When hours pass without anyone com...

    Once again I have begun a series out of order In this instance, the second Professor Bradshaw tale depends very little on knowing what happened in the first mostly because the high points are recapped periodically Set in 1901 Seattle, the story involves historical events nationally and locally I expect the setting is better appreciated by denizens of the Emerald City The author captures the blended rural and urban nature of the city very well Electricity and all the wondrous gadgets associated with it play a large part as this is the Professor s specialty There is a mysterious disappearance, the discovery of a dead man, a missing child, gold prospectors, a cross dresser, drug smugglers, and a chase by train.I enjoyed reading the novel for the setting, the historical consistency, the science engineering involved, the wealth of detail, and the plot The characters were for the most part flat and the writing fair to average, and heavy handed at times in staying true to...
