City of Lies

A Counterfeit Lady Novel, #1

“City of Lies” tosses the reader into jail with the main character and the suffrage movement. I have to say that this worked very well. I decided to read this because of the cover and I died hard loved it. I couldn't put it down. This novel is for those who love romance, cons, a little mystery and a lot of powerful women! I loved that just because they were thrown in jail didn't mean they couldn't do something about it. “City of Lies” was hard to put down to get other things done and man I am not ashamed to say that I had my oldest doing laundry just so I could finish it. SHHH, don't tell her that!

In “City of Lies” you can really tell how much research went into this story, and it made it even better. I really can't wait to get my hands on the next story. I can't wait to see what the story turns into and how the characters go about their lives.

Book Blurb for City of Lies

An exciting new series featuring woman-on-the-run Elizabeth Miles—from the beloved national bestselling author of the Gaslight Mysteries.

Every woman plays a part—but some are more dangerous than others…

Like most women, Elizabeth Miles assumes many roles; unlike most, hers have made her a woman on the run. Living on the edge of society, Elizabeth uses her guile to relieve so-called respectable men of their ill-gotten gains. But brutal and greedy entrepreneur Oscar Thornton is out for blood. He’s lost a great deal of money and is not going to forgive a woman for outwitting him. With his thugs hot on her trail, Elizabeth seizes the moment to blend in with a group of women who have an agenda of their own.

She never expects to like or understand these privileged women, but she soon comes to respect their intentions, forming an unlikely bond with the wealthy matriarch of the group whose son, Gideon, is the rarest of species—an honest man in a dishonest world. Elizabeth knows she’s playing a risky game, and her deception could be revealed at any moment, possibly even by sharp-eyed Gideon. Nor has she been forgotten by Thornton, who’s biding his time, waiting to strike. Elizabeth must draw on her wits and every last ounce of courage she possesses to keep her new life from being cut short by this vicious shadow from her past.
