Silence in the Library: A Lily Adler Mystery (LILY ADLER MYSTERY, A Book 2)
Lily Adler has done it again. She’s found herself in the middle of a murder investigation, offering her help to the constables in order to find who murdered Sir Charles Wyatt, a friend of Lily’s father. Lily must use her unique position in the upper classes to find out information that the constable would be otherwise unable to obtain. When a maid from Sir Charles’ household dies mysteriously before being able to tell Lily some information, the stakes are raised even higher. Lily must discover why someone from Sir Charles’ household would want him dead before any other members die and the Silence in the Library becomes deafening.
I thoroughly enjoyed this second installment in the Lily Adler series. Although the case wasn’t difficult to figure out, being in Georgian England is never a disappointment. Schellman does a brilliant job bringing historical accuracy and clever characters to life. It’s always wonderful to see a woman using her wits instead of always following society’s demands, but Schellman clearly shows how hard it would have been on Lily to do so. If you enjoy murder mysteries, especially those that take place in Georgian or Victorian London, I highly recommend this series.
