I definitely enjoyed this tale of New York, reporters, Morse Code, and danger. It came in the mail today, and I was glad to dive right in. I intended to read a single chapter and get back to the other book I'm reading, but the story grabbed me from the beginning.
Lucy is likable from the start, a...

I was not expecting the character of Lucy to be what she was in this book- I think the pearls on the cover threw me off. (While there are pearls in the story, I don't believe she ever wears them). Lucy is one determined woman, holding tightly to her values but willing to get a little down and dir...

She has a masters in history, so her research is unparalleled, she has an easy, accessible writing style, characters and dialogue that leap off the page and a keen sense of time and verisi...

I enjoyed the relationship between Colin and Lu...

Truth: the last few books I've read of Elizabeth Camden's have been slightly disappointing. Nothing has lived up to Against the Tide, which I adore.
I am so happy to say this is my second favorite Camden book, coming second only to Against the Tide.
I loved it. It was exciting and there was danger...

There were several times while reading this book, that I had to put it down.... NOT due to poor writing or storytelling, but because I was getting nervous for these characters. I was actually worried that this story would not have a happily-ever-after ending!
I have read almost all of Elizabeth C...

One thing that you can always know you'll get when you pick up an Elizabeth Camden novel is history. I'm not talking about a time period, necessarily, but a lifestyle. You will learn so much about the era she chooses to write in. You will learn how they lived, worked and loved.
This time she takes...

Elizabeth Camden's books are so quirky that they fill your heart with fuzzy feelings and make a silly smile impossible to be hidden.
Plus, she has the talent to pick "simple" historical facts/inventions (many things we might actually take for granted today) and spin a fascinating story that grows...
