Publisher's Summary

In the early 1900s, Camri Coulter's search for her missing brother, Caleb, leads her deep into the political corruption of San Francisco - and into the acquaintance of Irishman Patrick Murdock, who her brother helped clear of murder charges. As the two try to find Caleb, the stakes rise and threats loom. Will Patrick be able to protect Camri from danger?

On her way to San Francisco to find her brother, Caleb, who went missing three months ago, Camriann Coulter meets Judith and Kenzie, who both have their own mysteries to solve in the booming West Coast city. The women decide to help each other, including rooming together and working at Kenzie's cousin's chocolate factory.

Camri's search for her brother, an attorney, leads her deep into the political corruption of the city - and into the acquaintance of Patrick Murdock, a handsome Irishman who was saved from a false murder charge by Caleb. Patrick challenges all of Camri's privileged beliefs, but he knows more about what happened to her brother than anyone else. Together, they move closer to the truth behind Caleb's disappearance. But as the stakes rise and threats loom, will Patrick be able to protect Camri from the dangers he knows lie in the hidden places of the city?

Be ready to not lay this book down

I couldn’t, stay away from this book. The characters were diverse and displayed their personalities. I likes Judith,s character the most. Kaleb's return was a surprise. I like how Tracy did that.

One of my Favorite Audiobooks by Tracie Peterson

What a great start to this new Golden Gate Secrets series by one of my favorite authors, Tracie Peterson! And I've listened to many of her audiobooks (she has over 100 books released!) but this is one of my favorites. The narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life. I disagree with the other reviewer who didn't care for the narration. I was amazed by Angela Lin's ability to manage all the different accents and voices. Can't wait to listen to the next book in this series!

Equality and Education vs Compassion and Wisdom

Even in the early 1900s, San Francisco was a wild and corrupt city . . . a city that I still love, but one that you must visit with eyes wide open, knowing what to expect . . . so when university educated, Camri Coulter travels west to search for her missing brother, her high ideals do not quite prepare her for what lie ahead . . . picking up two friends along the way, she meets Judith and Kenzie, who both also have their own mysteries to solve. Back east, Camriann Coulter had a well paying job worthy of her social standing and education, but in San Francisco, she's forced to take work wherever she can find it . . . which turns out to be a chocolate factory. She and her friends pool their resources to try and find Caleb, Camri's missing brother, and it soon becomes apparent that he was involved in something that may have gotten him kidnapped or killed. One of the things that I most appreciated in the story is that Camri comes up against different ideas than her own highly held beliefs: that women's equality and education are the most important and therefore to be sought by all women. When her friend indicates that her highest goal is marriage and a family, Camri is at first appalled. But then she comes to face to face with her own prejudice and pride. Little by little, Camri learns to value the choices that her friend and other classes of people value, and she learns much as they seek to find her brother, Caleb. The dance halls, brothels and places that immigrant peoples in San Francisco are forced to live and work begin to show Camri what a privileged life she has led. God created men and women equal, but DIFFERENT for a reason. And it's also scary that this is the beginning of the roots of feminism . . . to know that we have come to the place that we are in America today is heartbreaking . . . the story is well written, conclusion is satisfying . . . looking forward to the next in the series

Loved the story, narration was far from my favorite

I’m glad I stuck it out because the story was amazing but the narrator almost made me miss out on it. It may be just me, and I can only imagine how much work and time it must take to narrate one of these stories, but I really was not a fan of this narrator and her narration. For me it was very discordant and had to be endured instead of enjoyed... sorry. 😬

a great read!

loved this book, couldn't walk away from it. I even learned more history of life in San Francisco with the prejudices against the Irish and Chinese, not to mention shanghai in the old days.

Not For Me

I must admit I could not finish this book. Maybe it was the performance, or the fact the book seems to be poorly researched. And the plot is slow moving. The characters want to tell us everything. I’ll try a later book by the author.

Excellent and complex

Excellently written story and narration - plot was a bit dark for me with little relief from the criminal actions swirling around every page but I am an avid fan of the author and appreciate the high quality of her storytelling-

I loved this book. A good love story but not syrupy sweet.

I really enjoy books about the early 1900’s. Such a different in-the culture,life style,fashion and morality. I had to laugh at some of the things. much evil ,envy ,depravity as in today. So there is nothing new under the sun. The narrator was excellent with the Irish brogue and upper class language as the downtrodden inflection. Yo will really like and dislike various characters in book Good story line easy to follow looking forward to sequel
