    A Trace of Deceit

    Smoke swirling around the darkened doorstep creating mysterious shadows. A carriage racing down the uneven cobblestone street creating a sense of urgency. The distant echoing of the lamplighter’s steps fading into eerie silence. A sudden and unexplained murder. Yes, please! After reading Diane Freeman’s newest novel (and thoroughly enjoying it), I thought maybe I needed to start exploring the world of Victorian mystery. I opened up my email and saw a message asking if I would like to review A Trace of Deceit by Karen Odden. It was an offer too tempting to resist. I am now officially a Victorian mystery lover!

    The Bachelor Duke

    Move over Mr. Darcy, there is a new moody man in town! Who can resist a man who thinks he doesn’t want to marry? Remington Warren is everything you want in a romantic hero. Grumpy, moody, resistant to love -falling in love with the heroine at first sight.
