Swiss Vendetta
Swiss Vendetta (Agnes Luthi Mysteries) - Tracee de Hahn

After her husband's death Agnes transfers from the Financial Crimes division to the Violent Crime division. She needs to have a change in her life. Her first case in the division is a murder at the chateau of a long rich family. With the snow storm of the century trapping her at the chateau she might just find herself in over her head.


I have to admit that most of the time I was more interested in finding out what happened to Agnes' husband, George, then who killed Felicity. Agnes was still grieving over what happened with George and kept dwelling on it that my interest shifted towards that. Once she finds out a secret about her husband she then realizes why it happened. 


In regards to the mystery as to who killed Felicity I was a bit annoyed at how drawn out it felt. There are a couple other mysteries in this book and they really slowed down the plot for me. Little did I know that everything would be connected at the end but I still thought certain parts were unnecessary.


This appears to be the beginning of a series and I would be interested in reading more. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

The Blizzard of 1888 (GD) (Great Disasters: Reforms and Ramifications) - Tracee de Hahn For myself, I quite enjoy reading an engaging narrative about a disastrous weather event. The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea was gripping, as was Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History. Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago, was a compelling read and looked hard at what failures were demonstrated by the high loss of life, and what changes could be instituted. All, very strong books.This wasn't like that. It was tedious. Dense text blocks, poorly designed, too few photos or illustrations. Ugly and boring, let me reiterate, to someone who is fascinated by such information as how this one storm lead to the burial of power and telegraph lines, the implementation of municipal snow removal and trash collection teams.The PandaBatWolf picked it out, and we were hard pressed to find anything worth taking from the book, except the photo caption about how one enterprising person set up a ladder to a train trestle and charged passengers $.15 each to climb down from their trapped train.
