Murder on Lenox Hill
Penguin Putnam

When the affluent Lintons of Lenox Hill summon Sarah Brandt to examine their teenage daughter, their worst fear is confirmed: she is with child. The pregnancy is a mystery, however, as the young woman—mentally still a child herself—is never left on her own and denies that any man has ever hurt her. It’s a delicate situation, casting suspicion on those close to the Lintons, including their beloved minister, the Reverend Oliver Upchurch.

But as Sarah and a reluctant Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy investigate, fate deals their inquiry a harsh blow. The reverend falls dead during a service—poisoned by cyanide-laced wine in his chalice. Now, they must not only uncover the truth behind the Linton girl’s pregnancy, they must track down Upchurch’s killer before this entire sordid affair wreaks havoc on more innocent lives…

Baker & Taylor
Hired by the wealthy Linton family to confirm that their teenage daughter, a mentally deficient young girl who is constantly protected, has somehow become pregnant, turn-of-the-century midwife Sarah Brandt investigates when one of the prospective fathers--and suspects--turns up dead, the victim of poison. Reprint.

This is the 7th in the gaslight series. Better if you start with book 1, Tulsa library does not offer it. Love the characters and how they progress through out the series!
