The Lusitania has just been sunk, and headlines about a shooting at J.P. Morgan's mansion and the Great War are splashed across the front page of every newspaper. Capability "Kitty" Weeks would love nothing more than to report on the news of the day, but she's stuck writing about fashion and society gossip over on the Ladies' Page - until a man is murdered at a high society picnic on her beat. Determined to prove her worth as a journalist, Kitty finds herself plunged into the midst of a wartime conspiracy that threatens to derail the United States' attempt to remain neutral and to disrupt the privileged life she has always known.

Clever whodunnit setup and a very entertaining heroine. It was fun to ride along with Kitty on her adventures and misadventures in pre-WWI New York City, as she attempts to forge a career path at a daily newspaper. Some of the writing is rather clunky - too much dialogue, and way, way to much historical trivia, as though the writer felt pressured to display the depth of her research. But I look forward to reading more of the series, to see how Kitty thrives and changes in the era of the "Great War".

I feel this type of tale has been better done for old time-y mystery solvers, like in the Deanna Rayburns, or Rhys Bowens, but it's alright. Kitty Weeks wants to be a journalist although all the menfolk feel she cannot do it due to being a ladyperson. Then murder most foul occurs, and it's up to the plucky lead to solve it. It's not bad, so here's hoping later bits of the series pick up.

Really enjoyed this book. The author did a great job on her first novel and am looking forward to more from her.
