Description

In 1816 London, Kendra Donovan tries to track down a missing man, but also finds trouble brewing closer to home in the fifth book in Julie McElwain's riveting time-travel mystery series.

When Kendra Donovan is approached by Mrs. Gavenston with an unusual request--to find her business manager, Jeremy Pascoe, who recently vanished--the FBI agent is eager to accept the challenge. To Kendra's way of thinking, spending her time locating a missing person suits her more than perfecting her embroidery, painting watercolors, practicing on the pianoforte, or any of the other activities that are socially acceptable for young ladies in the early nineteenth century.

Unfortunately, the missing person's case turns into a murder investigation after Kendra finds the man stabbed to death in a remote cottage that he'd been using as a writer's retreat. Everyone who knew him says that Pascoe was a fine fellow. So who hated him enough to kill him?

Seeking the answer to that question plunges Kendra into the world of big business, as Mrs. Gavenston happens to run one of the largest breweries in England. And if there is one thing Kendra knows hasn't changed, it's that big business means big money . . . and money is always a motive for murder.

While Kendra works to sift through the truth and lies swirling around Mr. Pascoe's life--and death--her world is rocked closer to home when a woman arrives claiming to be the Duke of Aldridge's presumably dead daughter, Charlotte. It is a distraction Kendra cannot afford, not when there is a killer lurking in the shadows who will do anything to keep the truth from being exposed.

Reviews

Outstanding. With perfect pacing, McElwain holds the reader's interest from the first page to the last.-- (05/28/2019)
An unusual, absorbing tale. Well-integrated story lines involve Kendra's romance and a grief-stricken family whose son's fate is an education in the horrors of war. The highlight here, however, is the time-travel aspect, which sees FBI investigatory skills muted to match the knowledge and mores of the day.-- (05/28/2019)
A much improved mystery, a touch of history, and the obligatory romance combine for a pleasing read.-- (05/28/2019)
An entertaining mystery with considerable period detail and a touch of romance. Fans of historical mysteries with strong female characters, such as Rhys Bowen's 'Molly Murphy' series or Laurie King's 'Mary Russell' books will enjoy.-- (05/28/2019)
