The Family Way
A Molly Murphy Mystery by Rhys Bowen
Review: Molly Murphy married Police Captain Daniel Sullivan a year ago and though she's happy — and now pregnant — she's also bored. She's been forced to give up her private detective agency by Daniel, who it should be said treats her as if she were made of fragile porcelain. In order to occupy her time, Daniel suggests employing a maid-servant, who Molly could train before the baby is born. After composing a letter to his mother asking for her advice, Molly mails it only to discover that the post office has a letter addressed to her at her old agency address. It was a request from a family in Ireland who hadn't heard from their niece, who had gone to New York to find employment. Could she help? Surely this was something Molly could look into with causing any stress or strain — on her body or her marriage — in The Family Way, the 12th mystery in this series by Rhys Bowen.
