A small Welsh village. An interrupted romance. A rogue frog on the loose threatening their future.
New recruit to the Queen's agents, Dr. Piyali Mukherji is given a simple first assignment. Travel to the small Welsh village of Aberwyn and solve the mystery of a young woman's blue skin lesion. A challenging task, for the alarming infection is unlike anything she's seen before--and it's spreading.
Evan Tredegar, the town's pharmacist and the only man to ever capture her heart, knows more than he's telling. Despite his efforts to push her away, her touch reawakens old desires. As more villagers fall victim to the strange disease, he'll have no choice but to reveal his secrets, even if it means sacrificing his freedom.
Together they must move past broken promises, capture a rogue frog, and stop the infection before it spreads out of control.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Anne Renwick; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

Awesome Steampunk Romance
I really loved book! The scientific details add so much authenticity to the story. The mystery/suspense elements are well thought out also and really increase the romantic tension between the hero and heroine. She is very no nonsense and he’s still holding a torch for her, which makes for a very satisfying love story. I’ve read other books by this author and this standalone novella is a nice introduction to the whole series.
Trace of Copper
A great steampunk story. I love how strong Anne makes her female characters in these stories she writes. These are just fun books to read.
