Daughters Of Hampshire book 3
by Sandra Byrd
-From the back cover-
After her father's mysterious death, Miss Gillian Young takes a job as the new principal costume designer at the renowned Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Gillian remembers her father as a well-respected officer of the Metropolitan Police, but she uncovers clues that suggest he led a double life.
Then Gillian meets the dashing Viscount Thomas Lockwood. Although the attraction between them is instant, a friend suggests that he was involved in her father's murder. Is Lockwood's interest in Gillian just a front for his pursuit of her newly inherited property?
Gillian is convinced that her father has left behind evidence that will prove his innocence. But as her opposition becomes increasingly dangerous, it is obvious that someone wants to stop her from discovering it. With her life on the line, Gillian takes on an ingenious disguise in the role of a lifetime to reveal her father's true killer.
Is anyone truly what they appear to be?
I don't know if Jane Eyre was the first in what we would come to call the genre but it certainly is the quintessential Gothic romance. What attracts us to these over-the-top stories? But it's true, there is nothing like sitting down to read one of these deliciously dark tales complete with damsels in distress , mysterious heroes, secret hiding places, romance, and betrayal. Finding a Christian one is not the easiest at all. Enter Sandra Byrd's adventure-filled Daughters Of Hampshire series with ALL of the qualifications necessary for a good Gothic romance.
This Book received a 4 Bark rating.
A Lady In Disguise is only the second book I've read by this author, the other being book one in this series, but I was quite pleased to find that they can be read standalone. Now I can't wait to read book two, because, believe me, I don't intend to stop with only these two titles. Sandra Byrd definitely has me hooked!
