Page-Turning Romance and Intrigue in Award-Winning Author’s Next Historical Novel
Lucy Drake’s mastery of Morse code has made her a valuable asset to the American news agencies as a telegrapher. But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk. Newly arrived from London, Colin is talented, handsome, and insufferably charming.
Despite their rivalry, Lucy realizes Colin’s connections could be just what her family needs to turn the tide of their long legal battle over the fortune they were swindled out of forty years ago. When she negotiates an unlikely alliance with him, neither of them realizes how far the web of treachery they’re wading into will take them.
Sometimes you read a book that you finish and you go, “Good book.” Other times you don’t enjoy the book as much and move on easily.
This was neither of those. This was a book that I finished and thought, “Wow. I wish I had not just read that book as I would like to read it again!”
Elizabeth Camden is an exceptional author, but I love her unique characters. They have quirks, fun personalities, and flaws, yet you can love getting to know them while learning amazing historical facts without even realizing it.
Carrier pigeons, Morse code, newsrooms, spies, and narcissistic/abusive family members are only a few of the topics covered in this fast paced story. It is one you will not want to put down.
Elizabeth Camden is one of the authors that is an automatic buy for me. I see she has a new book out and I don’t even stop to think if I will enjoy it.
I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her writing and books! I never think I can have one that tops my favorites by her, and then another one comes along.
I obtained this book through NetGalley and Bethany House publishers. The opinions contained herein are my own.
You can purchase your own copy, (and I encourage you to do so) at local booksellers and online. “A Dangerous Legacy”
