Dear guvernant Nell Sweeney and her anguished dashing hero Doctor keeps its strong hold on my interest. Book 3 I hoped, crossed my fingers and it was a safe guess. Death on Beacon Hill was yet again another good 8 hours audiobook narrated by Leigh Ryan experience in this lovely lighthearted historical mystery series.
The first part Still Life With Murder got 4. Let this third make me as satisfied. The third Death on Beacon Hill is set in Boston the summer of Cornelia Nell Sweeney a Irish immigrant is since some years the governess for the 4 years old adopted daughter of the wealthy Bostonians Viola and August Hewitt. Nell is nowadays also a kind of brave "hobby sleuth". In the 1 book a year earlier Nell first met the Hewitt family's dissapered eldest son, the "black sheep" Will.
Death on Beacon Hill (Nell Sweeney Mysteries, Book 3)
Will Hewitt , assumed dead after experiencing the US Civil War horrors, is still a war hero and previously a dedicated medical doctor struggling with life. Sadly is he having a horrifying hard time to go back to the wealthy upper class Boston life his family and friends lives. His continuing drug abuse scares, Nell's, in early age quite damaged, heart has maybe in this, sadly opium addicted, but so bright and charming, man Will found her supposed love of life.
No time for writing long-winded about the contents of this third part. Maybe not marvelous fabulous 5 stars reads but in all ways the kind I like days like these when packing boxes. Looking forward to part 4 later this fall. Recommended for audiobooks fans of historical light crime. I LIKE - to continue my listening to a favorite series View all 18 comments. This one seemed slightly different than the first two in how they went about solving the mystery. There wasn't a lot of 'detecting' on Nell and Will's parts, they just went around talking to the people involved until the truth came out.
Not that that's not a valid way to solve a mystery.

I liked Will's idea of pretending to court Nell, so them spending time together was more socially acceptable, and that Will seems to take it more seriously than Nell. Although, while Nell's always perhaps rightly worried about possibly losing her job as Gracie's governess because of some impropriety, I can't see why Nell couldn't divorce her husband, marry Will and then they could raise Gracie, who is Will daughter after all. But I guess that would be too easy, especially given the time period and Nell's thoughts on divorce.
I started reading this series last week when book 1 was a free book on Kindle. I adore the characters and cannot wait to read on. This was my favorite of the first three books.

The author manages to fill in some background on the characters throughout the text so that you can understand the character interactions without having read the previous books, but she manages to pull it off without boring those of us who have read them with repetitive information. Ryan is quickly climbing my list of favorite authors and I cannot wait to dive into book 4.
Dec 09, Tony Hisgett rated it it was ok Shelves: An OK mystery but it was all fairly boring. In the previous book her relationship with Viola Hewitt had given her some leverage, but here she is just a governess.
Unfortunately, the way the author has decided to solve this problem is with a romantic attachment with Will Hewitt. Death on Beacon Hill 4 Stars Governess Nell Sweeney and her employer's estranged son, William Hewitt, investigate the murders of a former actress and her young maid. Much of the investigation revolves around Nell and Will interviewing one suspect after another during various social situations, and it requires a healthy suspension of disbelief to accept that Nell would be admitted into the upper echelons of Boston Brahmin society.

The actual revelation of the killer is unsurprising and the climax and resolution are not as intense or exciting as in previous installments. The real highlight of the story is the growing attachment between Nell and Will. It has been a while since I read the previous book, and I remember just how appealing these two are. All in all, a quick and mildly entertaining read, but not the best historical mystery out there.
Oh what can I say? I adore Nell, Will and P. Although I found a bunch of spelling mistakes in the nook eddition of this one and even one little writing mistake!
