Book One of the Klondike Mystery Series by Vicki Delany!

It's the spring of 1898, and Dawson, Yukon Territory, is the most exciting town in North America. The great Klondike Gold Rush is in full swing and Fiona MacGillivray has crawled over the Chilkoot Pass determined to make her fortune as the owner of the Savoy dance hall. Provided, that is, that her twelve-year-old son, growing up much too fast for her liking; the former Glasgow street fighter who's now her business partner; a stern, handsome NWMP constable; an aging, love-struck ex-boxing champion; a wild assortment of headstrong dancers, croupiers, gamblers, madams without hearts of gold, bar hangers-on, cheechakos, and sourdoughs; and Fiona's own nimble-fingered past don't get to her first. And then there's the dead body on centre stage.

This book had promise. The promotional blurb promised a murder mystery set in a interesting location with lots of interesting characters. I was expecting suspense and drama.

What I got instead was a disjointed story that jumped back and forth between first person and third person (a completely unnecessary first person, I should add; at no point did it give the reader extra insight into her character) and had zero suspense. In fairness, there might have been suspense had I not constantly been pulled out of the story by yet another narrative switch.

Because I was reading this for two reading challenges, I powered through anyway, but I was turning pages for the sake of getting to the end of the book and moving on to something more enjoyable.
