Publisher's Summary

Romulus White has tried for years to hire illustrator Stella West for his renowned scientific magazine. She is the missing piece he needs to propel his magazine to the forefront of the industry. But Stella abruptly quit the art world and moved to Boston with a single purpose: to solve the mysterious death of her beloved sister.

Romulus, a man with connections to high society and every important power circle in the city, could be her most valuable ally. Sparks fly the instant Stella and Romulus join forces, and Romulus soon realizes the strong-willed and charismatic Stella could disrupt his hard-won independence.

Can they continue to help each other when their efforts draw the wrong kind of attention from the powers-that-be and put all they've worked for at risk?

Narrator Makes This Story Nearly Unbearable!

I really enjoyed Elizabeth Camden's writing style in a different book of hers that I listened to. I found the characters in this book, however, to be unlikable. Maybe they deserved each other. I will say the narrator caused the characters to seem even more annoying than they probably would have been had there been someone else reading the story! I began listening to Elizabeth Camden's books because a different reader compared her to one of my favorite authors, Lynn Austin. While she displays a talent for story-telling, there is no trace of the depth of Christian message you see with Lynn Austin! I would call this "clean" reading with an occasional mention of God or prayer. It will not change your walk with Christ.

Great story, obnoxious narration

Love the story. Very well written, great plot, great characters. Did not like the narration at all. The voice was distracting and quirky.

Great Christian story

Loved the storyline. Had a balance of suspense, love and mystery. I can only say repetitious thoughts from midway on is the only reason I am giving it an overall 4 stars.

Interesting!

I found this book to be very interesting and enjoyable. The way in which Stell searched for the truth about her sister's death was a bit different. She was stubborn, head-strong and went about things in a bit of a gruff manner. Not typical for a woman of that time period. The romance between Romulus and Stella was a bit different too. He was a confirmed bachelor, made no secret about it, yet he and Stella fell for each other. The villain was very much a surprise! I really liked how the author brought him out into the open.
One of my favorite parts was when Stella faced her biggest fear head on and realized she should be thankful for everything in her life.

The narration at normal speed was slow, very breathy, and almost boring, I sped it up to what I considered normal speaking speed, maybe a little faster, and it was much more enjoyable to listen to.

I have loved many of Elizabeth Camden's books and look forward to reading/listening to more.

Narrator was terrible

I finally gave up trying to listen to this woman’s voice. She whined! I don’t recommend this book!

It’s was okay

Good story but it was a little slow moving for me until over halfway. Both of the main characters were too shallow and vain for my taste. I enjoyed the side story of his cousin and her husband more.

Not very good for me.

Mostly, did not like the reader. Poorly done. The story started out interesting but I began to lose interest, and quit about over halfway through the book. Still, others may find they enjoy it. So don't give up because of me.

Great - except the Narrator

I am determined to NEVER listen to an audio book by this narrator in the future. Every sentence seemed to end with a question and her voice was so annoying. Arrogant? Negative? I can't identify the problem but I could only finish listening to the book by selecting a faster speed to get it over with.

Narration

I very much enjoyed the story but found the narration very difficult to listen to. Her drag on the end of the word at the end of each sentence was hard to listen to. Perhaps that was what the author wanted. But for me it was like fingernails on a chalkboard.
