    1. For the past few days I have been trying to find time to read Radha Vatsal's debut novel, A Front Page Affair. Things have come up that have been poaching on my reading time. I got home from work at 9:15pmok my shower and then buckled down to read. I finished 10 minutes to midnight so technically still part of Mystery Monday!A FRONT PAGE AFFAIR(A Kitty Weeks Mystery: #1)Written by Radha VatsalMAY 1, 2016; 336 PagesGenre: mystery, historical, fiction(I received an ARC from the NETGALLEY in exchan [...]


    2. This book is set in the 1900's so you need to cast your mind back to that mind set. Women were treated somewhat differently I don't car what people say, it was a different era back then. This is the start of a new series by this author and not having read anything by her before I kept my mind open. Kitty comes from a background of a person who is 'well off' in those days, she had money and was well traveled at the age of only 19.Her job was a good one but sometimes mundane and she wanted more. L [...]


    3. I always love to dive into a historical fiction in which the female lead has to solve a mystery. A Front Page Affair does not disappoint- fans of this genre will enjoy the intelligent curiosity in Kitty Weeks as she ventures into the newspaper world. It is 1915 and the world is rapidly changing. The neutral United States is quickly boiling with suspicion of friends and neighbors as German spies. The news is becoming rapid from the war front and Kitty is hopeful to be a part of it. She is gratefu [...]


    4. I made a serious mistake while I read Radha Vatsal's debut mystery, A Front Page Affair. I found myself criticizing Kitty Weeks, the young journalist/amateur sleuth for her naïveté. And, then I realized a nineteen-year-old young woman, brought up in Europe prior to 1915, working her first job, would be that innocent. But, Vatsal does an excellent job introducing readers to Kitty's world, and pre-war New York City.Kitty Weeks is well-off, living with her widowed father. They have a chauffeur, c [...]


    5. This was a pretty good book that took place in New York City during the time when Wilson was deciding what to do about the Lusitania. America was nervous and some were taking advantage of the neutrality. Then there was Kitty who was working as a "journalist" in the ladies section of a newspaper whose dream it was to be a "real" journalist. She gets sent to a soirée in which there is a murder and her professional life changes overnight. For a while. I think the author did a great job capturing t [...]


    6. Excellent historical mystery; traditional, without overt sex or violence. Set in 1910 by someone who has really (thank you Radha Vatsal) done her research. Set in NYC and Westchester with the looming threat of the United States entering WWI, A Front Page Affair has a young woman who wants to become a journalist, a realistic view of a woman's role in society if 1910, several major (historically real) people to frame the story -- and ties to politics and possible espionage. Well-written, and a pag [...]


    7. I truly enjoyed this story line. Capability Weeks, or Kitty, as she is more informally known, is a modern American girl that works for the New York Sentinel. In 1915 New York, girls are not allowed to be reporters, so when Kitty is asked by her boss to attend a society garden party to write a story on the event, she's determined to do the best she can. When the event goes awry, Kitty tries to make sense of the clues, and through the help of some interesting characters, she is able to prove to he [...]


    8. An outstanding historical mystery by an author I hadn't read before. Set in New York at the turn of the 21st century. Capability (Kitty) Weeks is the Society Editor assistant for the newspaper, the Sentinel. Kitty attends a high society gala which featured daytime fireworks. While present a guest is found dead in the stables who was found shot with is own gun. Behind the murder is a hidden motive to derailed the neutrality of the United States in THE WAR. Kitty learns a secret about her Father t [...]


    9. Fantastic historical data in this classic amateur sleuth. Female writer works for the newspaper, wanting to be seen as a "real" reporter. Great nods to feminism without banging you over the head with it. Very well researched, adding authenticity without slowing down the story. No graphic sex or violence.


    10. A Front Page Affair by Radha Vatsal is a clever historical mystery starring an intrepid young reporter turned amateur sleuth. Set in 1915, this first installment in the Kitty Weeks Mystery series is an entertaining and educational debut that is quite riveting.On her first independent assignment for the Ladies Page, Capability "Kitty" Weeks is sent to cover an Independence Day celebration hosted by Bessie Basshor. Excited to venture into the "real" world of reporting, Kitty is busy observing the [...]


    11. It is 1915 in New York. Capability “Kitty” Weeks is nineteen years old and a reporter for the Ladies Page of the New York Sentinel (she wants to report real stories but women are not allowed in the newsroom). Miss Helena Busby is her boss and showing her the ropes (she is also her assistant). Kitty was assigned to cover the Independence Day Gala organized by Mrs. Elizabeth Basshor. Kitty was enjoying the unique fireworks display and then there is screaming. Hunter Cole is dead in the stables [...]


    12. 4 Stars for the book A Front Page Affair by Radha Vatsal. I’d also like to thank NetGallery for allowing me to read this book in exchange for my honest review.I am such a fan of the Molly Murphy series by Rhys Bowen, fans of Ms. Bowen will enjoy this book as I was pleasantly surprised that in this new series by Radha Vatsal, that my dear Molly will have a friend. If you like/love historical fiction with a little mystery thrown in, then this is the book for you. The characters are well develop, [...]


    13. 3.5 stars. "A Front Page Affair" is the kickoff to a new mystery series set against the background of World War I. The world is changing and Kitty Weeks, our heroine, realizes that there is room for her to change as well. She wants to do more than her fluffy reporting job and when a man is murdered, she may get her chance. This is an exciting start to a new series that I will be watching.I can't help to make references to the Maisie Dobbs books, which I love. Like in those books, we have a reall [...]


    14. Incredibly well-researched, but I found the pace to be lagging, bogged down by too many side notes and insignificant happenings in Kitty's life. She herself proved to be an intelligent and likable character, but I found it hard to connect with her, mostly due to her personality being rather up in the air; at times, she was incredibly bold and independent, while at others she acted little better than a school girl. Granted, she is only 19 in this first book and so I suppose the author was trying [...]


    15. I had seen advertisements of this book and then found an ARC at the Public Library Association Conference in Denver. Kitty Weeks would like to be a journalist, but she needs to prove her mettle. I think she's made a nice start in this first book. I enjoyed the historic NYC setting and appreciated the research of author Radha Vatsal. Let's see what's next for Kitty.



    16. Radha Vatsal’s debut novel, A Front Page Affair, takes us to 1915 New York City, as Capability (what a great name!) “Kitty” Weeks is working as a reporter on the fashion and society pages for the New York Sentinel newspaper. Kitty really wants to cover the hard news stories, something that women just weren’t allowed to do. While covering a society party on Long Island, a man is murdered and Kitty is the only reporter on the scene.She takes advantage of her position and works to discover [...]


    17. Fun! Silly fun - perfect for reading when I needed to get away from everything. A rollicking little mystery about a spunky female reporter at the beginning of the twentieth century in New York City, this book kept me entertained from beginning to end. I love learning a little with my silliness. The tidbits of social history along with the general atmosphere educated me on the time while the mystery deepened and the plot unfurled around me. I quite enjoyed my time with Kitty Weeks!



    18. Kitty Weeks has come to live with her wealthy businessman father in New York. She longs to fit in with the socialite society her money gains her entry to, but at the same time, she wants more than a life of keeping house for her father and waiting to marry. She takes a job at a newspaper, dreaming of being a reporter- however, in 1915, the only women reporters wrote the women's page of the paper. Reporting about society, who wore what, when is not what Kitty had in mind but she hopes to take on [...]


    19. Kitty is a journalist for the “Ladies’ Page” for The Sentinel newspaper. However, she wishes that she could write about other topics other than writing about ladies topics. One day, when she finds a man is murdered at a high society picnic, she realizes that this may be her opportunity to make her dreams come true. Because she has attended the event, the editor of The Sentinel wishes that she provides background information regarding the murder. As she investigates, she realizes that this [...]


    20. Originally posted on You Have Your Hands FullI received a copy of this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I love historical fiction, and I love mysteries. I was very excited about the opportunity to read A Front Page Affair, which is the first book in a new series by Radha Vatsal. Capability “Kitty” Weeks works for a newspaper, but she has been relegated to covering “women’s” news. She is sent to cover a Society party, and one of the guests turns up dea [...]


    21. Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for an e-ARC for review!A Front Page Affair was really enjoyable! I love historical mysteries, especially ones set in New York. The story contains a lot of interesting historical tidbits about the city in the early 1900's and touches on the politics leading up to the United States' involvement in World War I. The story also contains an interesting discussion of the divergent views of a young woman's role in the changing world. Kitty Weeks is an interesting [...]


    22. Capability (Kitty) Weeks works at the Sentinel Newspaper on the Ladies Page in New York City in 1915. She spent many years abroad in Europe for school and now lives with her father back in the States. Kitty longs to be a real journalist and cover the more hard hitting news but because she is a woman can only cover mostly society events. Her latest assignment is a Fourth of July Party for the wealthy at a country club. A murder happens during the party. Things escalate from there which cause her [...]


    23. Capability Weeks, known as Kitty, is the daughter of a wealthy business man in New York City in the time when Europe was at war (WWI) but the United States was not. Kitty is a reporter, working on the ladies page. She longs to be a real reporter chasing down hard news and finding acceptance in the world of men. Her wealth and privilege gives her entree into some society outings that the other "girls" are not able to manage. Her wealth and father's rules also restricts her from other freedoms. Sh [...]


    24. Rich with details about New York City in the early 20th Century, A Front Page Affair gives us an experience of what life was like back then for an independent-minded young woman who aspires to pursue a career in journalism. (And it makes me very grateful that I’m living my life in the 21st Century!)Capability (what a great name!) Weeks, known as Kitty to her friends and co-workers, navigates a world that is not yet welcoming to women who want to do more than run a household and raise children. [...]


    25. I really enjoyed this book. I like historical fiction but often find good historical fiction is hard to come by. This is good historical fiction and utterly refreshing. Set during the early years of the first world war and not a country house drama (for which I am truly grateful), this novel is fast-paced and intriguing. The revelation of the murderer at the end was a surprise and Capability Weeks is a well developed character. Her determination and curiosity keep the reader hooked as they and s [...]


    26. I love historical novels but wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this book. Let me confess that I was a tad cynical about the ability a fellow Indian being able to tackle a historical novel set in New York. I’m so happy to say that I was proven wrong. Radha Vatsal has done a fabulous job with this book.The story line is fantastic and had me intrigued right to the end. It makes an easy read and flows beautifully. The character of Kitty ‘Capability’ Weeks is well-developed and I loved ho [...]


    27. I had the pleasure of meeting the author at my local library for a book discussion. After hearing her speak about her work, I couldn't wait to get home and start reading! Kitty is such a real, relatable, honest character, and I found myself rooting for her throughout the story. I loved the combination of mystery and historical fiction. The novel sheds a fascinating light on the lives of women and other marginalized groups during this era, while still exploring themes that are very relevant to th [...]


    28. The pacing of this book was all off. Kitty Weeks is a reporter fit the ladies page of the New York Sentinel but she desires to write more than fluff pieces. so when a murder occurs at a society event she's covering, she hopes to contribute to the actual news story about it. The problem is that there's so many little details which are mashed into the book. The interview with Anne Morgan, sister of JP Morgan, the conviction by insanity of a millionaire who kills his wife's lover, the society miss [...]
