Stella West's artistic talent made her the toast of London, but when her beloved sister dies under mysterious circumstances she abandons everything and heads for Boston. With single-minded determination she fights to pierce the ring of secrecy surrounding her sister's death. Upon meeting Romulus White, a publisher with connections into every important power circle in the city, she quickly realizes he could be a valuable ally in navigating Boston society.
Romulus has been pursuing Stella for years to create art for his magazine. Her luminous illustrations are the missing piece he needs to propel his magazine to the forefront of the industry, and he will stop at nothing to get her on board.
Sparks fly the instant they join forces, but Romulus is unsettled by the unwelcome attraction he feels toward Stella, fearing she might be the one woman who could disrupt his hard-won independence. He may have finally met his match in Stella, but is helping her solve the mystery of her sister's death worth the risk to his publishing empire?
This book was interesting as I learned a little about Subway's. The moral of this story I thought, was to listen to your "gut feelings," which is something I always do. Stella was an interesting character with immense strength and convictions and it didn't matter who got in her way, she was going to solve her sisters death. So Romulus as the leading male character was a perfect match for her.
I found the little details in this book interesting and well thought out. For example the way the author described the wooden floors Romulus has installed at the office. May seem like a minor thing but was well thought out. The "who dunit and why," of this story I didn't figure out until it was revealed, and then it was a "oh that's why that was included in the story."
Stars out of 5 : 4.5 Quite liked this book as it was a little different to other's I have read this month. The little details made it more real. Good book to read to fill in an afternoon or two.
