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.

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.
