Murder is never far from this sexy couple . . . even during the holidays!

Their honeymoon abruptly ended by the untimely death of Alcott Howard, Clive and Henrietta return to Highbury, where Clive discovers all is not as it should be. Increasingly convinced that his father’s death was not an accident, Clive launches his own investigation, despite his mother’s belief that he has become “mentally disturbed” with grief. Henrietta eventually joins forces with Clive on their first real case, which becomes darker—and deadlier—than they imagined as they get closer to the truth behind Alcott’s troubled affairs.

Meanwhile, Henrietta’s sister, Elsie, begins, at Henrietta’s orchestration, to take classes at a women’s college—an attempt to evade her troubles and prevent any further romantic temptations. When she meets a bookish German custodian at the school, however, he challenges her to think for herself . . . even as she discovers some shocking secrets about his past life.

A Veil Removed

I enjoyed the look inside Manudlin College (sorry I can’t remember the spelling). One of my best friends went there and I’m anxious to tell her about your book. Even though I understand Elsie’s lack of back bone when came to standing up to the overbearing adults in her life, it was still very annoying. Thanks for the good suspense scenes.

Annoyed for now. ,

A Veil Removed

This is a 1935 exciting story of mobsters, extortion of one of the very wealthy families of Chicago, and the trials of young wealthy women coming of marriageable age.
The characters and the problems they encountered were very intertwined and disturbing. Henrietta and Clive’s love story, Elsie’s tragic attempts to live her own life instead of the one her grandfather molds for her, Clive’s father’s murder, Gunther’s quest amid his love for Elsie all combine to keep the novel interesting and exciting.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more of the series.
