    1. Very happy about this bookI'm starting to look to reading new genres so for me things are a bit of a gamble.I was impressed very early on with the book. Well researched and thought out. I really enjoyed the style of writing within the historical context of the late nineteenth century.Nice layering and interwoven plots and there was some wonderful character development.Great imagery conjuring both the affluent and bottom of the barrel low income way of life around that time. There's a lot going o [...]

    2. I received this from and was very pleased. I especially enjoyed the more historical parts that happened in the past. Indeed, it's a good lesson on "If you haven't walked a mile in their shoes." but even though it's historic, so much of it applies even today. What a great way to start the new year -- with a pleasant surprise of a book. Thank you, Jacqui and !

Mary's suffering at the hands of the abusive husband and her in turn turning into a lunatic who neglected her children and drugged and killed some of them. In the end Mary gets hanged for poisoning her husband which she vehemently denied to a friend but not to the authorities to protect whoever did, who can only be one of her children. Decades later someone stumbled upon Mary's [...]

    6. Enjoyed this book very much. The story was well planned and comes together in the end in an interesting way. The characters are well presented, and historical events and background have been thoroughly researched. "Vote for Murder" fits all my criteria for a historical fiction good read.
