First Line It was chaosIt s 1892 Self described typewriter Hattie Davish has been paid to work for a Mrs Edwina Trevelyan of Eureka Springs Arkansas She boards the train in Kansas City and when she arrives in the resort town the very first thing she sees is the American Women s Temperance Coalition AWTC trying their best to demolish a saloon By the time she gets to the Arcadia Hotel Hattie has learned that Mrs Trevelyan is the president of the AWTCAfter a short battle of wills with a AWTC member Hattie assumes control of Mrs Trevelyan s correspondence but the woman herself seems to have disappeared Hattie does as much as she can with the letters and telegrams then she sets out to find her employer Shortly thereafter she finds the woman s body and when an arrogant woman in the temperance organization tells her she can go home Hattie refuses She s been paid for a week s work and she s going to stay to help find her employer s killer What Hattie hasn t planned for is that by her conscientiousness she s putting her own life in dangerAuthor Anna Loan Wilsey sets her stage immediately by having Hattie Davish witness the demolishing of a saloon I can t remember any other fiction book I ve read using the background of the women s temperance movement and as I began reading A Lack of Temperance I had to wonder why All the various members created a microcosm of motives which is perfect for a mysteryHer choice of Eureka Springs Arkansas was also inspired The Victorian resort town s treacherous twisting streets steep stairs luxurious hotels and many hot springs fired my imagination and created many locations for Hattie to investigateHattie Davish is a young spirited woman who as a traveling private secretary is a bit ahead of her time She s a workaholic who can forget to eat or rest and in her spare time she loves to explore finding plants to add to her catalogue Hattie is meticulous in her work habits to the point of being what we would call OCD today Throughout her investigation she settled her mind by sitting at her typewriter creating lists of facts and lists of uestions It s no wonder this young woman attracts all sorts of other characters to her including handsome young doctor Walter GriceI did find the identity of the killer to be a bit obvious but as a debut book with an 1890s traveling secretary as the main character I think this series is set up for a very interesting enjoyable run I look forward to reading books about Hattie and to learning about her mysterious benefactor Sir Arthur Windom Greene

A Lack of Temperance Read & download Õ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Heir wake So when their beloved leader Mother Trevelyan is murdered it's easy to point fingers Now that she's working for a dead woman Hattie turns to her trusty typewriter to get to the truth And as she follows a trail of cryptic death threats she'll come face to face with a killer far dangerous than the Demon RumA wonderful read from a welcome addition to the genre This one shouldn't be missed it has it all Emily Brightwell. Hattie Davish arrives on the train from Kansas City to Eureka Springs Arkansas eager to start her new assignment as personal secretary to Mrs Trevelyan Hattie is shocked to learn Mother Trevelyan is the leader of a woman s temperance movement and isn t afraid to express her strong views against liuor by taking an ax or setting fire to local saloons Hattie never gets the opportunity to meet her new employer because Mother Trevelyan is missing and later discovered to have been murdered Hattie puts all of her skills to use in finding out who murdered the temperance leader who appears to have had secrets that may have led to her murderI loved the uniue setting of this book which takes place in 1892 in the uaint resort town of Eureka Springs which is still known today for its healing waters This is an interesting time and place in history and the temperance movement is not just a backdrop but is at the heart of the mysteryHattie is a brave and determined heroine who isn t afraid to face opposition to do what s right With her would be employer missing Hattie decides she is going to find out what really happened to Mrs Trevelyan and nothing will stop her from that self assigned task The story takes as many twists and turns as the windy streets of Eureka Springs which keeps the reader guessing as to Mrs Trevelyan s true fate Unfortunately the story does slow down toward the middle and sometimes becomes hard to follow As Hattie gets closer to finding the murderer the story picks up again Two people who assist Hattie in her investigation are two elderly sisters Miss Lucy and Miss Lizzie who love to gossip as much as they love their work in the temperance coalition Their scenes lighten up the book and the characters are great friends and allies to Hattie I also enjoyed the possible romance between Hattie and Dr Walter Grice The author transports the reader to a simpler time when describing Hattie and Walter s date a lovely picnic with cold fried chicken cheese pound cake and the couple taking turns reading poetry to each other While the book moved a bit slowly in some parts I love the premise of the book and think this is a series with a lot of potential At the end of the book Hattie talks about moving on to her next assignment Hopefully wherever her next job leader her she will be getting a few visitors from Eureka SpringsI received this book from NetGalley through the courtesy of Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review

One of the best aspects of reading for me is the introduction to new places and historical connections Anna Loan Wilsey in her debut novel has given me both I admit that I wasn t overly excited with the setting being in Arkansas as I didn t think I would be that interested in it but Eureka Springs was fascinating That should teach me to make unsubstantiated locale judgements I found myself getting up out of bed the night I started reading it and using the computer to look up the area to better picture in my mind all the unusual street configurations and spring locations To my delight the author has links and information on her page about Eureka even a map of how it would have appeared in 1892 the time setting of the novel I do however wish that the map had been included in the book It would have been helpful in imagining Hattie Davish s the main character wanderings throughout the townHattie Davish is a traveling secretary who arrives in Eureka to serve as secretary for Mother Trevelyan president of the women s temperance movement Eureka is the site of the national meeting for the American Women s Temperance Coalition timed to coincide with a vote on Proposition 203 to criminalize the sale of alcohol Before Hattie can meet her new employer the temperance leader is murdered A local bar owner is charged with the murder but Hattie doesn t believe he is guilty and sets out to do some investigating on her own With her meticulous eye for detail and order she uses her typewriter to keep track of events and people compiling a list of uestions to try and connect the dots She becomes acuainted with some interesting characters during her uery the delightful older sisters Lucy and Lizzie and the charming Dr Walter Grice Secrets are buried deep in this historical mystery and Hattie encounters much personal risk but she is as diligent in the undertaking of detective work as she is in her secretarial duties She even discovers a few things about herself in the processAnna Loan Wilsey has written an interesting engaging historical mystery that left me looking forward to the next installment of the Hattie Davish series 1892 turned out to be a very good year
