What is this book about?
After losing the love of her life to a big city journalism job, Elissa Tillman pours herself into the suffragette movement and her secretarial work helping keep her father’s Pittsburgh newspaper afloat.
Cole Parker returns to the steel city with the phantom failures of his past nipping his heels. All he asks of the future is a second chance with the woman he once spurned.
The murder of a millionaire offers the perfect chance for Elissa to prove to her father and the world that she’s a serious journalist. But there’s a catch—she has to compete for the story. Against none other than Cole Parker, the very man who shattered her heart.
Sniffing out the details of a murdered millionaire provided a great setting for attraction to flare and love to blossom in two journalists. I loved the mystery as I followed the competition of Elissa and Cole to get a great story. There were quite a few suspects and I was taken by surprise when the mystery was solved.
Elissa was a determined and talented young woman striving to succeed in a male dominated field. She was passionate about the women’s suffrage movement but she did not lose her femininity in the process. I loved the soft side of her that was a great contrast to her strength and ambition.
Cole was a world weary but wonderful soul. His struggles to beat his past demons were relatable and admirable at the same time. But the most important thing about him, at least for me, was his unwavering love for Elissa.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
The romance between Elissa and Cole.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Just a weird thing here, but Elissa received a telegram during dinner from a place that is in the same city. It made me wonder why.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. Especially if you are interested in the 1920’s time frame. This was a really good romance with a nice mystery woven through. This is a standalone story.
