Strong Suspicions

Sophie Strong supports women gaining the right to vote and writing pieces for the local paper that are true and of interest to the readers. Of course, as a woman, she gets to write fluff pieces about local events and share recipes and tips for removing stains. Then she finds herself in the middle of a front page story when she discovers the body of a major opponent to the cause of women's suffrage right outside her aunt's office. As she pursues the story for the dual purposes of reporting the facts and proving the innocence of two women she esteems, she meets the sergeant in charge of the case. His assertion that continuing her investigation may be dangerous to her health. Will she discover the murderer before they decide she is too great of a liability?

The story immerses the reader in a world where women are fighting to gain the right to vote despite being considered less capable. Of course, this meant the first couple of chapters seemed more like reading a pamphlet on the subject that a novel, but I feel it redeemed itself in the end.
