Publisher's Summary

Following a humiliating fourth season in London, Lady Elizabeth Fraser is on her way back to her ancestral country estate when her train careens off the rails and bursts into flames. Though she is injured, she manages to drag herself and her unconscious mother out of the wreckage, and amid the chaos that ensues, a brilliant young railway surgeon saves her mother's life. Elizabeth feels an immediate connection with Paul Wilcox - though society would never deem a medical man eligible for the daughter of an earl.
After Paul reveals that the train wreck was no accident, and the inspector who tried to prevent it dies under mysterious circumstances, Elizabeth undertakes a dangerous investigation of her own that leads back to her family's buried secrets. Not only are her dowry and her reputation at stake; Paul's very life hangs in the balance when he is arrested for manslaughter. Now Elizabeth must risk everything for the man who has found a place in her heart. As the trial draws near, and Parliament prepares for a vote that will change the course of the nation, she uncovers a conspiracy that has been years in the making. But time is running out to see justice done.

A well crafted story

My only quibble with this book is the title, which seems to have little to do with either the plot or the characters. Please overlook this tiny flaw and proceed to enjoy an excellent mystery wrapped in a very natural romance. I throughly enjoyed the book from beginning to end, and I look forward to more from this author!

FANTASTIC.... SIMPLY FANTASTIC!

Having read hundreds of books of many genres, this one has to be in at least the top ten! It is simply fantastic!! The story totally absorbing from the first words to the last ones. And the narration, one of the best I have ever heard. The interwoven and overlapping stories were totally believable as were all the characters. And Mary Sarah renders each voice, both male and female, so distinctly, and her ability to switch from one character to the next seems totally effortless. Just a superb read made all the better by listening to it.
