The Gilded Lady by Elizabeth Camden

53158106. sx318 sy475


Secretary to the first lady of the United States, Caroline Delacroix is at the pinnacle of high society--but is hiding a terrible secret. Immediately suspicious of Caroline, but also attracted to her, secret service agent Nathaniel Trask must battle his growing love for her as the threat to the president rises and they face adventure, heartbreak, and danger.


Another wonderful book by Elizabeth Camden. I truly love her writing style and her ability to bring the characters from the Gilded Age to life so that we may come to know them in their element.
I know that this is going to sound crazy but I think that Ida McKinley is my favorite first lady. I think the reason is because she's so misunderstood. She can't help her medical condition. Some think she's selfish and self absorbed. I really don't think so. I found her quite interesting!
I liked this couple because their relationship reminds me of my in laws. Such opposites attract. I loved the President's personality. His love for life and people. I enjoyed getting to know this special couple.
Two of my other favorites are of course Nathaniel and Caroline. I've never witnessed a better team than they were!
Life has a way of changing all of us does it not? Some for better or worse. I think it's how we approach it.
A verse from Ephesians is in here and it's a gentle reminder that life is always changing. It never stays the same.
Always tell someone you love them because tomorrow isn't promised. I like that reminder. I only wished I could have told my mom but I think in her own understanding she knew that I loved her. We just had a weird way of showing it to each other
Just so you know that counterfeit runs very rampant in even today's times. It's never a good thing.
I've ran into counterfeit money only a couple of times. It's a wonder I didn't lose my job or that I had to pay it back!
However; I did learn my lesson the hard way.
I do highly recommend a box of tissue by your side because there are some spots in this book that will make you cry. I'm not normally a crier but wow! This sure did!
Lots of espionage, secrecy, murder, mystery and romance included in this wonderful tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more, more! I love that in a book.
She also kept me guessing until the very end of the book and I definitely love those types of books!
I took my time to read this book because I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to savor this book but it still ended too quickly and now I have to wait for the third book waaaaaaaa!
I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. It really does deserve it!
I highly recommend this book and be sure to keep a box of tissues beside you because you'll need them!
My thanks to Netgalley and Bethany House for a complimentary copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
