In 1948, Charley Hall resents giving up her job as city reporter for the Kingston Tribune to a returning soldier. But her demotion to the women’s pages is the least of her worries since Gran is organizing a surprise birthday party for Charley’s older brother, Freddie. Trouble is, Freddie hasn’t come back from his latest bender. When Charley goes looking for him, she discovers the dead body of a woman, last seen with her brother. Beside the murdered woman is a torn newspaper article about local politician Dan Cannon, who also happens to be Charley’s best friend. To make matters worse, a police detective from Toronto shows up and begins nosing around. Charley is not about to stand by and let her brother nor her friend take a fall for a murder based on circumstantial evidence. Not by a long shot.
Really enjoyed this 1st book in a series titled “A Charley Hall Mystery”. A story about Charley who is a reporter and is demoted basically because she’s a woman. Moved to the woman’s section of the paper to boot. Charley has what one might call an eccentric family she lives with. A brother Freddy, on a bender most of the time, and a grandmother who really has no idea when Freddy is or isn’t home.
This was a quick read. Lots of humor. I think one of the things I enjoyed was that not only did the characters have distinct personalities, there were not so many. Made the story very clear and as I said, enjoyable. The series has three books to date. Hope we hear from Charley again.read an excerpt...
