The author has created a terrific female protagonist in Miss Hattie Davish, a self-described "lady typewriter" or traveling secretary. Expert typist, amateur botanist and keen social observer, Hattie calls upon all her training and talents to solve murders while fulfilling her professional duties. Set in the fashionable resort town of Eureka Springs AR, "A Lack of Temperance" combines historical fact, social commentary and satisfying plotting with the appealing personality of Hattie Davish, her mentor and employer, Sir Arthur Windom-Green, and various supporting characters. A happy find - and there are two more books in the series !
