This was a well told story that kept me interested until the very end.  It was not however, a light hearted romance.  Far from it.  This was about murder and the more "seedy" side of life.  You will go from Virginia, to New York and across the sea to England, chasing after the villains and trying to rescue those who are in trouble and don't even know it.  There is much evil in the world in the late 1800's and it did my heart good to see see the Pinkerton Agency step up and seek out the bad guys.

Eve Sheridan always had a suspicion about that man her sister married, Giles Dawson, and then took her off to England.  Her sister's letters sound like things are not going well in the marriage and then the letters stop.  Giles Dawson is not who he claims to be and Rebecca, the sister, is in way over her head.  Will Eve arrive in England in time to save her sister?

Pinkerton detective Alex MacKay has suspicions of his own and at first thinks Eve is a part of the evil schemes of two men they have been trying to gain enough evidence on to convict.  But Alex and Eve will have to learn to trust each other as they head to England to hopefully find her sister.  There are men though that want them dead so it is a "watch your back" situation at all times.

This was a thrilling, suspenseful drama with a tender love story that develops, but in no way takes over the intriguing story line.  As it says on the back cover of the book, "Will Eve's struggling faith to trust God despite all obstacles prove strong enough to prevail against the evil that surrounds her?"  You will find out how strong a woman Eve really is as she endures much in this story.
