I have a really exceptional book I wanted to share with you all called Secrets of Sloane House written by Shelley Gray that I believe you will enjoy reading!
One woman’s search for the truth of her sister’s disappearance leads her to deceit and danger in 1893 Chicago.
Rosalind Perry has left her family’s rural farm in Wisconsin to work as a housemaid at Sloane House, one of the most elegant mansions in Gilded Age Chicago. However, Rosalind is not there just to earn a living and support her family—she’s at Sloane House determined to discover the truth about her sister’s mysterious disappearance.
Reid Armstrong is the handsome heir to a silver fortune. However, his family is on the periphery of Chicago’s elite because their wealth comes from “new money” obtained from successful mining. Marriage to Veronica Sloane would secure his family’s position in society—the lifelong dream of his ailing father.
When Reid begins to realize that Rosalind’s life may be in danger, he stops thinking of marriage prospects and concentrates on helping Rosalind. Dark things are afoot in Chicago and, he fears, in Sloane House. If he’s not vigilant, Rosalind could pay the price.
Set against the backdrop of Chicago’s Gilded Age and the 1893 World’s Fair, Secrets of Sloane House takes us on a whirlwind journey of romance and mystery.My Review:
This book is filled with action from the moment you start reading! I don't know how Rosalind could even work in a place called Sloane's House, but she was bound and determined to find out what had happened to her missing sister, Miranda. Both sisters are from Wisconsin and being in Chicago is definitely way over either one of their heads.
She does make some friends but none of them work with her as she knows right away that the Sloane House is not a place that you can trust anyone.
She does meet a nice man named Reid and between the two of them they begin to gather information that will lead Rosalind to answers about her sister. While they are doing all this, Rosalind knows she has feelings for Reid but doesn't say anything. She needs to watch her step because another woman has her eyes on Reid also and she is just as mean and dangerous as the man who owns the house.
