Review: Murder in the Blue Room (Eleanor Roosevelt #8)

User Review  - Jim - Goodreads

I enjoy these little stories about Eleanor as detective. She's been a role model to many, and her character and personality shine through these novels. Never mind that these weren't actually written by her son, but by another man. They are still enjoyable. Read full review
