#BookReview: City of Lies (Counterfeit Lady, #1) by @gaslightvt @NightOwlReviews

 
Elizabeth Miles scours 1920’s Washington, D.C. for a killer in the first Counterfeit Lady novel from the author of the New York Times bestselling Gaslight mysteries.

Every woman plays a part—but some are more dangerous than others…

Like most women, Elizabeth Miles assumes many roles; unlike most, hers have made her a woman on the run. Living on the edge of society, Elizabeth uses her guile to relieve so-called respectable men of their ill-gotten gains. But brutal and greedy entrepreneur Oscar Thornton is out for blood. He’s lost a great deal of money and is not going to forgive a woman for outwitting him. With his thugs hot on her trail, Elizabeth seizes the moment to blend in with a group of women who have an agenda of their own.

She never expects to like or understand these privileged women, but she soon comes to respect their intentions, forming an unlikely bond with the wealthy matriarch of the group whose son Gabriel is the rarest of species—an honest man in a dishonest world. She knows she’s playing a risky game, and her deception could be revealed at any moment, possibly even by sharp-eyed Gabriel. Nor has she been forgotten by Thornton, who’s biding his time within this gilded orbit, waiting to strike. Elizabeth must draw on her wits and every last ounce of courage she possesses to keep her new life from being cut short by this vicious shadow from her past.
 









This one will toss you into jail with the main character and the suffrage movement. I have to say that this worked very well. I decided to read this because of the cover and I died hard loved it. I couldn't put it down. This one is for those who love romance, cons, a little mystery and a lot of powerful women!  I loved that just because they were thrown in jail didn't mean they couldn't do something about it.  This one was hard to put down to get other things done and man I am not ashamed to say that I had my oldest doing laundry just so I could finish it.  SHHH don't tell her that! 

This one you could really tell how much research went into this story and it made it even better.  I really can't wait to get my hands on the next one I can't wait to see what the story turns into and how the characters go about their lives.
