★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
This historical fiction slash mystery suspense got me up all night. My eyes got wide from the moment I read the bloody prologue and continued to feel nervous as the chapters progressed.
Cady Delafield was a force, a paradox. At first, I didn’t understand how and why she had chosen to be a martyr, to accept whatever dirty little secrets her betrothed Doyle Flannagan was hiding. (Maybe it had to do with the fact that I wasn’t able to read the first book in the series).
Nevertheless, Cady had grown on me and I soon realized that there was more than met the eye. Their partnership was remarkably astounding, their chemistry sizzling. Even the timeline (Chicago in the 1880s) was magnificently depicted. I never thought I’d fully appreciate the beauty and wonders last century brought to the story.
Joyce Proell is an effective author and a really talented one at that. The mystery surrounding the characters really made it hard for me to put this book down! The suspense literally killed me!
Joyce grew up in the Midwest and attended college and grad school in Chicago. After working in mental health, she retired to write full-time. Her first book, Eliza, was published in 2012. A Wicked Truth is the third book in the Cady Delafield series. When she isn’t writing mysteries or historical romances, she loves to swim, walk and is a crossword puzzle fanatic.
