A Reader's Opinion

This intrepid heroine kept me guessing till the end and made me laugh out loud!

The Case of the Peculiar Inheritance by Samantha St. Claire is a stand-alone novel in the new McKenzie Sisters Mysteries series.

Rose is the epitome of the perfect heroine that I love to follow. She’s colorful, amusing, ingenious, and brilliant. I loved the setting Colorado 1899 and the atmosphere with a delightful blend of humor and adventure. The story grabbed me right from the first page and kept me guessing! It’s one of the best western mysteries I have read lately! It’s well written, suspenseful, and fast-paced! This story is set during the excitement of the turn of the twentieth century when the emancipation of women was on the rise.

Rose McKenzie is a woman ahead of her time. She loves all scientific experiments and sometimes gets into trouble while trying to achieve her many goals. She is also Denver’s first female private detective and takes her job very seriously. So when a woman seeks her professional assistance, she can’t help but take the case! Rose embarks on a new mission with the help of her good friend Dr. Taylor Whitman. Rose is intrigued and eager to start investigating a troubling case of theft related to a vase and mysterious letter. Although, the complexity of the crime might put her in danger! Will she solve this mystery?

A female detective riding a bicycle is sure to attract your attention! That doesn’t bother Rose in this non-traditional role during a time when women wanted to achieve new goals.


The Case of the Peculiar Inheritance

Witty and irascible Rose McKenzie tackles Denver’s criminal cases with a woman’s intuition and a loaded Smith and Wesson tucked in her skirt pocket.

Eager for adventure beyond her scientific experiments, Rose accepts her uncle’s challenge to become Denver’s first female private detective. When a wealthy woman employs her to track down a burglar, Rose zealously applies her unique investigative talents to prove she can handle any job. After two more home invasions turn violent, Rose races to find the perpetrator before another innocent shows up on a slab at the city morgue.

With the stakes raised, Rose employs the help of her friend, the attractive Dr. Taylor Whitman, to lure the perpetrator out of hiding—with Rose as the bait. What Rose fails to foresee is the complexity of the crime, involving more than one perpetrator tasked with silencing her. Will her cunning be enough to unravel the clues before it’s too late?

Step into Denver’s bustling city streets at the turn of the century with Rose McKenzie, a spirited private investigator and a woman brave enough to undertake any case.

Don’t miss The Case of the Peculiar Inheritance, a stand-alone novel in the delightfully entertaining McKenzie Sisters Mystery series.
