A Pinchbeck Bride by Stephen Anable, 180 pages
I had read the first book by this author, The Fisher Boy, and just didn't love it. But I thought I would give his second book a chance. It's a mystery set in Boston, in a Victorian House museum. One of the docents (tourguide/caretaker) is found dead in a period piece dress. Comic Mark Winslow is one of the trustees, and starts looking into the murder.
I just couldn't get into this book. This was way too dry, especially since it features a comic as the main character, and just never grabbed my attention.
