Murder in the East End (2020) Jennifer Ashley (Kat Holloway)

Murder in the East EndSet in London in 1882

Daniel has once again come to Kat Holloway seeing assistance in dealing with a problem–in this case a woman and several children are missing from a foundling house, and Daniel’s brother (of a sort) came to him for assistance.

“Daniel and I were raised together, and he tells me you know under what circumstances. We refer to each other as brother, but we were no such thing, though as close as. After the man we called our father died, I eked a living on the streets.”

Also, Kat’s friendship with Lady Cynthia causes her problems, and Lady Cynthia’s aunt continues to try and marry her off.

“Ridiculous that a man can share his deepest secrets and best malt whisky with his valet, but I can’t have a chat with the cook without endangering us both.”

I’m not sure if I just wasn’t in the mood for this book or if little things kept bothering me. It was a library book I had on hold, so I had to read it if I didn’t want to wait another month or two to read it. There was nothing particularly wrong, other than the fact that time feels like it passes strangely in the story–Kat’s half days seem to last forever, considering all the things she does during them.

But, it was a nice escape.
