    Victoria Thompson’s City of Secrets

    Grifting, blackmail, murder, robbing a mother with two children, prostitution plus more make for an exciting, well written, well plotted story. The story is set in the 1920s. Elizabeth Miles is a con artist who is in the process of reforming her ways. She is trying to do this due to her relationship with the uptight, upright lawyer..... Gideon Bates. Elizabeth is also trying to learn and live life according to society’s rules of etiquette. Elizabeth meets Priscilla Knight, a two time widow with two young children. Helping Priscilla by reviewing her husbands finances, Elizabeth discovers a scam has happened to the widow. This scam has left her penniless. After discovering the scam, Elizabeth starts to investigate. Seems blackmail and murder have happened by how will Elizabeth help get money back for the widow. It is necessary for a con artist to outsmart the murderer and scam artist. This is a fun, entertaining, interesting and intriguing read filled with deadly secrets. Although this is book # 2 of the Counterfeit Lady Mystery series, it can be read as a stand alone. The author mixed the past and present together effortlessly so the characters are easy to get to know. I volunteered to read City of Secrets. Thanks to Penguin’s First-to-Read fit the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

    Great addition to this series

    Book one in this series, City of Lies, gave us a good history lesson about the Women’s Suffrage movement. This second in an, I hope, ongoing series digs down into more of the interpersonal relationships of Elizabeth, Gideon, and their families and friends. It also has more of a mystery than the first book. Elizabeth’s new friend, Priscilla, has been taken to the cleaners by her recently deceased husband. All the money she had from her first, loving, marriage is gone. She and her daughters will soon be destitute. Elizabeth, the con artist, and Gideon, the most honest man ever, work together to find out why the money is gone and who perpetrated this dastardly deed! Lots of intrigue, although the mystery was pretty easy to figure out. Although not as rich in historical details as the first book, still a great read. I’m loving this series and can’t wait for the next installment.
