The Family Way is the 12th book in the Molly Murphy series. There are currently 17 titles, so I’m almost caught up. A friend told me about Rhys Bowen a couple of years ago and I’m glad she did.

Molly is an Irish immigrant who must make her way in New York City in the early 1900’s. After trying and failing at more traditional jobs for a woman, she decides to become a private detective.

Some of the escapades Molly gets into are preposterous, but I love these books for relaxing, escapist reading. If you like mysteries with historical settings and spunky female protagonists, I highly recommend this series.
