Seneca Falls Series Book 1

Seneca Falls Inheritance

Edward Hoch, past president of Mystery Writers of America, wrote this about Monfredo’s debut book Seneca Falls Inheritance:
This is an exceptional first novel, with a likeable heroine and an unusually well-developed historical background of the first Woman’s Rights Convention. It should appeal to men as well as women, from its exciting opening during a storm on the Erie Canal right up to the revelation of a well-concealed killer in a gripping courtroom scene.


In her historically authentic and cleverly entertaining novel, Monfredo skillfully meshes life in Seneca Falls, New York with a page-turning suspense story.

— Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

The genius of Monfredo [is to] teach ‘herstory’ while absorbing the reader in a good old-fashioned mystery.

. . .well-written…historically accurate and telling.

— Sara Paretsky

Monfredo’s slick melding of fact and fiction is a meticulously researched, first class mystery that evokes with charm and vividness, rural life in the Empire State a century and a half ago.
