She’s compassionate and kind, yet there’s a frailness and insecurity to her. I think most readers will find something that they relate to that pulls at the heartstrings as well as tickles their intellect as they try to figure out whodunit. --Lee Strauss

Murder at the Mortuary, Book 5 in The Ginger Gold Mysteries Series by Lee Strauss, is available nationwide beginning today, April 17, 2018. Books one through four released March 20, and book six will follow in June. Strauss’ venture into the cozy historical mystery genre delivers a charming array of murders, suspects, and potential suitors.

Strauss transports readers to an almost magical decade bookmarked between two major wars. Post-WWI was a time of letting go of pre-war social restraints, and for the youth it was a time to seize the day. The war made everyone aware of how short life could be. By living large and embracing the outrageous, this generation of youth meant to forget the horrors of when the bombs fell. The Ginger Gold Mysteries series paints a beautiful yet thought-provoking image of the Roaring Twenties, with its lavish descriptions of the fashion along with discussions of the social norms of the time. During the 1920s there was more money and more social freedom, especially for women, than ever before. It was the age of revolution, from electronics to social constructs.

Main characters Ginger Gold and Haley Higgins push these boundaries, as their feisty spirits and sense of adventure help them to rise above some of the limitations bestowed upon women of their time. By combining history and fashion, Strauss creates a fun and lively series that entertains both historians and fashionistas alike.
