"Frank Malloy has never known any life other than that of a cop, but his newfound inheritance threatens his position within his department. While trying to keep both his relationship with Sarah and his fortune under wraps, he's assigned to a new case--finding a missing young woman for her worried father, Henry Livingston. It seems the girl had been responding to "lonely hearts" ads in the paper for months before she disappeared. Her father thinks that she's eloped with a deceptive stranger, but Malloy fears the worst, knowing that the grifters who place such ads often do much more than simply abscond with their victims. But as Sarah and Malloy delve deeper into a twisted plot targeting the city's single women, it's their partnership--both professional and private--that winds up in the greatest peril."-- Provided by publisher.

With Frank Molloy's changed circumstances, it will be interesting to see how the characters and series develops. How and where will Frank and Sarah's households merge when they marry? Will Sarah continue to be a midwife at all? Will Frank be able to continue any investigative work? I am curious to see how it all works out.

Very thoughtful with meticulous steps. If you are looking for a book with action, this is not it, but characters are developed nicely. I've gotten to really enjoy the main characters so it is nice to learn more about them in the series. The one thing I missed in this book that is usually in the others in the series was seeing the main character more in the role of a midwife.
