About the Book
It is 1835 in London and Charles Dickens and his fiancee, Kate Hogarth find themselves in the middle of a mystery when they find Charles’ neighbor murdered in a very old wedding dress. The secrets seem to lie in the woman’s past, but how far are Charles and Kate willing to go to find out the truth?
Historical fiction is quickly becoming a favorite sub-genre for me. I enjoyed this fictional look at the life of a young Charles Dickens. The characters are fun and full of life and the imagery bursts off the page and creates the scene in your head. Historical mysteries also always serve as a great reminder for me of how far civilization has come and how many blessings we have today with things like modern medicine. Two big thumbs up!
