    Thanks to the publisher (via Netgalley) for an advance e-galley in exchange for an honest review. At the beginning of Murder at the Mansion, I wasn't sure that this new series was going to click- I initially found the main character's attitude to be a bit too condescending and snobb...

    Murder at the Mansion by Sheila Connolly is the debut novel for her Victorian Village series. It was an intriguing beginning and the setting, although in a small town, was unique. I liked Katherine and her down-to-earth attitude. She doesn't hesitate to be truthful with both the tow...

    I had high hopes for this mystery series but I was disappointed. I just couldn't get interested in the story OR the characters. I had to skim through most of it. ...

    What a wonderful new series by Sheila Connolly. Kate works in the hospitality industry and has been at her current job for the past five years. When her best friend from high school, whom she hasn't spoken to in a while, calls her up and asks her to meet Kate wonders what she might wan...

    Updating with review: I love cozy mysteries and am always looking for a new series to fall in love with. Unfortunately, this was not it! I could not get on board with any of the characters. Most of them, seemed very shallow and unfeeling. And I wasn't delighted, amused or even interest...

    Murder at the Mansion, the first Victorian Village Mystery, is evidence of Sheila Connolly's expertise. It's obvious she knows her way around a Victorian house, and knows the way to research history. It's also obvious this isn't Connolly's first cozy mystery. She avoids some of the mos...

    I'm a sucker for small town mysteries and when you have a mysterious mansion at the center of it all, well, you've got my attention. And this was an enjoyable read, with a likable main character in Kate; she's a level-headed and unflappable sleuth and romantic interest Josh made for a ...
