A DEADLY TRUTH
Tainted in the eyes of Victorian society by his wife’s suicide, Doyle Flanagan turns a deaf ear to the baseless gossip and harsh rebukes. Ignoring his shattered reputation, he goes about his business, making money and enemies, and doing good works whenever his conscience gets the best of him. Arrested for murder, he is forced to rely on a feisty school administrator to solve the puzzle. As he struggles to prove his innocence, he realizes gaining the trust and loyalty of Cady Delafield may be more important than his freedom.
On a quest to locate a missing student, school matron Cady Delafield enters a stranger’s house and discovers the woman murdered. Driven to see the murderer brought to justice, she is determined to prevent any further tragedy even if it means joining forces with the very man accused of the atrocity. Against the wishes of her powerful family, she risks her job and reputation to learn the truth. But will the truth, once revealed, drive her away from the man she has come to love?
Passion and murder collide in 1880’s Chicago as they race to keep one step ahead of the police who want Doyle to pay for his crime. As the attraction between Cady and Doyle sizzles, they battle suspicions, lies and lethal actions to uncover the murderer before he destroys them both.

SO…Is Cady spunky? She sounds bold…Investigating a murder. I like a spunky heroine–in historical and contemporary stories.

Yes, she’s very feisty and sometimes a little too reckless. Oh, well, it makes for an interesting life.
I think it’s an awful thing, Joyce, when a person is persecuted because of what another in his/her family has done. It is a difficult subject to tackle in a story, too, I would think. So I appreciate that you have taken it “head on” and made a suspenseful romance out of it. I’m quite anxious to read it, actually. Thanks for the post today!
Appreciated your thoughtful comment. Joyce
