    Poison to Purge Melancholy by Elena Santangelo is book 3 of the Pat Montella mystery series, set in contemporary and 1783 Williamsburg VA. Pat spends the Christmas holidays with boyfriend Hugh, his daughter Beth Ann, and all his family (the romance is serious; time to meet family). Although she misses her own family celebrations steeped in Italian traditions, she is fascinated by the colonial traditions Hugh's mother Gladys "Glad" follows. Glad is thrilled to be living in a colonial dwelling, kn [...]

    This is the third in a series featuring Pat Montella, a woman from a large Italian family from Philadelphia who moved to Virginia to inherit an old estate, since she is the only remaining member of an old Confederate family. It is in Virginia that she first encounters both history and ghosts.It is Christmas Eve when our plucky Nancy Drew-like heroine travels to Williamsburg to meet her boyfriend's family for the first time and to spend a few days in one of the colonial houses that were part of t [...]

    I picked this book because it’s got a cool name. And the premise was alright, I suppose. Past and present unite with a murder. A house that has ghosts, historians telling their story, and one of the characters in the present gets poisoned, as the one in the past did.But. It wasn’t good. The author has an incredibly old fashioned style. I didn’t get, or like, any of the characters. It was written in the present, but the characters were all forced and awkward and written in a kind of languag [...]

    I picked this book up at some point over the summer and added it to the pile. I was pleasantly surprised that the protagonist was a Philly native transplanted to VA. It took a few chapters to get into the style with one chapter set in the 1780's and the other in 2000's (?). The book is fast paced and there are several chapters that pile on characters in rapid order but its a fun read. I plan to look for more in this series
