I’m a big Elizabeth Camden fan. I’ve loved all of her books to date. But I just couldn’t get into this one from the start. The characters didn’t appeal to me. I’m not even sure why, but they didn’t hold my interest. If I didn’t know what a great writer Camden is, I’d have put the book down. I’m glad I didn’t, because the finish was wonderful, it just seemed to take a long time to get there.
Stella West is a well-known artist. Romulus White is a well-known magazine publisher. It seems only logical that they’d meet, but neither thought it would be like this. Stella is in Boston disguised as a stenographer while she tries to find out who killed her sister. Romulus has contacts in high places all across the city. He offers his assistance in exchange for her drawings. Neither expected the hornet’s nest they’d uncover in the days ahead.
Worth reading, truly. Hang with it if the characters don’t grab your attention/sympathy from the beginning.
