    One thought on “Must the Maiden Die”

    1. “If she waited longer, she could lose her nerve, and there might never be an end to what Roland Brant’s murder, like a pebble tossed into a quiet pond, had set in motion.”Set in 1861 in Seneca Falls New York. This is the sixth book in the Seneca Falls historical/mystery series, featuring the sleuth Glynis Tyron, the town librarian with “women’s rights on her agenda…and mystery on her mind”. A wealthy, well thought of merchant, Ronald Brant, is murdered and an indentured servant gir [...]

    2. Charming mystery set in Seneca Falls, NY, home of Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The mystery is well written with interesting characters; an incredible amount of research was done; and the story is populated with notables from history, such as Susie B and Elizabeth C Stanton, as well as John Humphrey Noyes, who led the socialist Utopian free-loving Oneida Community. Ballooning as espionage was conducted by famed balloonist Thaddeus Sobieski Constantine Lowe. Fun mystery, learned a l [...]

    3. I'd actually rate this 3.5. Lots of history and complicated machinations between families, servants, Civil War weapons, and evil rich men. I got a bit tired of feeling that the author threw in everything, including the kitchen sink.One of the wealthiest men in town is murdered in his home. He is highly admired by the townsfolk for his support of libraries, hospitals, etc. However, this generosity disappears in his business dealings. Toss in Glynis' niece getting married, free love communes, anot [...]

    4. summary:Seneca Falls, N.Y 1861. Glynis Tryon is busy not only running the town's library, helping her niece, Emma, prepare for her wedding, and trying to keep another niece, Bronwyn's enthusiasm for danger and adventure in check so that she doesn't ruin Emma's wedding. She also finds herself involved in a murder investigation.The Civil War is heating up, but Seneca Falls seems more affected by the murder of one of the town's prominent citizens, Roland Brant, and the disappearance of the young gi [...]

    5. This story was very good and I am sorry that the series is over; I want it to go on for a few more! VERY well written. The feminist movement in Seneca Falls was a learning experience; history of the town and surrounding area, and beyond, was great. The murder mystery and related issues and people surrounding it was a good one! The heroine, Glynis the librarian, her Treasury Department agent niece's case with gunrunning to the south during the Civil War, and family wedding with all of its problem [...]

    6. This was much better than book #5. It remained true to the initial Glynis Tryon books, although in comparison to her brazen young niece, Bronwen, Glynis seems to be getting a tad bit more conservative. Most disappointingly of all, it's the end of the series (as far as I know) and Glynis' relationships with Cullen and Sundown remain unbelievably chaste and passion-less. Anybody want to join me in writing to Ms. Monfredo and asking her to revive the series, bringing back Glynis after menopause and [...]

    7. Ms. Monfredo got back on track with this one. Set in Seneca Falls, although niece Bronwyn drops in for a visit. I enjoyed this one as much as I did the first couple in the series and now I am sorry to see that the series has ended. I have just discovered the series Murphy's Lawby Rhys Bowen that seems to have the same feel to it.

    8. I really enjoyed this cozy mystery. While this is, I believe, the 5th in a series, it was my first read of Monfredo. Set in Seneca Falls, NY in the spring of 1861 at the onset of the Civil War, this book centers around the murder of a prominent local businessman, the victim of an appherent stabbing, and the indentured servant girl who is the prime suspect. The characters are intriguing, the mystery is well plotted, and I will look to read others by this interesting author.

    9. Another exciting novel that is part mystery and part history. Only whispers of the Civil War are heard in the spring of 1861 in Seneca Falls. A body of a prominent local manufacturer is found, the victim of an apparent stabbing. The main suspect is his indentured servant--an abused and frightened girl sold into servitude by her greedy father. The descriptions of laws affecting women at this time in history makes me realize what women had to endure.

    10. HB-B @ 1999, 10/07. Seneca Falls Historical Mysteries, Book 6. Set in Seneca Falls, before the war starts, a prominent citizen is murdered and his servant girl is missing. Is he as honorable as everyone thinks? Who really killed him? All the characters from the previous SFHM books are included. Very good. I really like this author, totally enjoyed most of her books.

    11. Yay, this one is back in Seneca Falls! I confess to preferring the books with Glynis Tryon, the original main character of the series, to the ones mostly starring Bronwyn, her niece the Yankee spy, no matter how much more action-packed the spying ones might be.

    12. Glynnis Tryon is a great character set in in an inetresting time and place. I was especially intrigued by the legal aspects of this tale.

    13. Feminists in Civil War-era Seneca Falls, NY try to solve the murder of a prominent businessman. Terrific historical context and detials.

    14. Indentured servant.Oneida religion.Smuggling guns for Confederacy.Glynis locates guns, as does Bronwen, her niece.Hot air balloons.

    15. Maybe the best of the series. Sorry to have finished the last, as I will miss the heroine and the stories.

    16. I start reading her work and don't want to do anything else. i love the way she tells a story. This one before the struggle of being a woman as the Civil war looms
