The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden


Last October I was able to take a quick couple of days and visit my publisher, Bethany House, in Minneapolis. Two other authors visited at the same time, and one was a newbie like me. Well, her first novel has just released—and is it a doozy!

Elizabeth Camden’s The Lady of Bolton Hill is a fascinating blend of romance, adventure and history. Late nineteenth century Baltimore. A heroine of high standing making her mark on the world. A hero who has risen from poverty to riches. And a villain that . . . well, I don’t want to tell you too much!

This book literally held me captive from beginning to end. And even at the end, I desperately wanted to know more, especially the fate of one of the characters I never intended to like. In fact, I found myself desperate for a sequel—and I haven’t felt that way about a book in very a long time!

All I can say is “Wow!”

Disclosure: this book was provided free from the publisher.

Hi Anne, I'm so excited about reading this book! Hoping to start it soon!

Thanks for your latest comment on Masterpiece news. I don't know if you subscribed to follow-up comments, but I wanted to make sure you got my response just in case you didn't. :) The Inspector Lewis Mysteries are wonderful! However, I would encourage you to go back and watch the show from the pilot episode - that way you can see the friendship develop between Lewis & his new sergeant, Hathaway. I have reviews of Series II & III up on my blog (links here on the Mystery page: http://booktalkandmore.blogspot.com/p/masterpiece-mystery.html), which can give you a feel for the show if you'd like to check them out. I'm hoping to add reviews of the pilot ep & Series I to make things complete at some point. Blessings to you! :)
