The Studebaker household is in turmoil; the news that President McKinley has been assassinated is more than anyone can stand. South Bend, Indiana is not a hotbed of anarchist activity, but something is clearly going on. When McKinley's death is blamed on foreign-born anarchists, Hilda Johansson, a recent immigrant, is concerned that fellow immigrants might be swept up in a wave of xenophobia. Despite orders to mind her own business, she sets out to discover exactly what is happening, no matter what it might cost her.

Gotta love a mystery set in 1901 South Bend, IN

What did you love best about Red, White, and Blue Murder?

In historical fiction what could be better than a story set in South Bend, Indiana in 1901, featuring he back story of the anarchists? As a child my cousins lived in South Bend and my Grandmother drove a Studebaker. I hear echoes today terrorism of my impression of anarchism in the early 20th century. I want to know what that was all about and how it ended, and how that might inform us in our fight against the terrorist movement.

On top of all of that intriguing setting, the author has penned a fabulous mystery featuring a smart, plucky female heroine.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The question continually hanging over the story is did the plot to kill President McKinley originate in South Bend

What does Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not All That It Seems

I love this author and this sweet series! I hope that Audible adds more to their collection. I love Hilda, her family and friends. I am not so sure about Patrick. I think she can do better.
What will change the Studebaker family and industry is amazing!
Give these books a try, they are wonderful!
