Feature book: Night Storm
Together they will find the murderer but can they rebuild their relationship from ashes?
Charlotte Fielding is an apothecary-surgeon. She trained for five years and has worked hard to take over her father’s business. She was once engaged but now sees that as being in her past and having a family may never happen to her. She is training another young woman and has an interest in Piper’s family. Charlotte has fought hard to get where she is and is conscious of her image. She becomes involved in a murder investigation when she almost stumbles upon the body. The investigation will take her to places she doesn’t want to go and sends her towards the man she was once engaged to.
Cameron Adair is a thief-taker. He tracks down items that have gone missing. He is then asked to find the murderer of Lady Winthrop. Cameron has fought his way through the lesser parts of society to become renowned for his abilities and as a man of integrity. He still picks up the strays but doesn’t believe that he is making much of an impact on their lives (which he does do).
He and Charlotte have a past. This past also includes Jules and one other friend who died. They haven’t spent too much time together since their friend’s death and since the broken engagement. It is now when Cameron suspects that Charlotte knows more than she is letting on, that he needs to keep her close and try and protect her.
This is a great story. It has the elements of the historical, with the strong and independent female who uses her skills to help those around her and those within the community. It has the hero who has been rejected and learned to direct that upset into achieving great things. It is how they will find their way back to each other that will keep the reader turning the pages.
