Will she be able to expose H. H. Holmess illicit activity, or will Winnifred become his next victim?
"A delightful debut! Bursting with intrigue, romance, and historical tidbits that bring Chicago during the Gilded Age to vivid life, The White City is a story thats certainly destined for the keeper shelf."
Jen Turano, USA Today bestselling author
"From the first sentence until the last, Hitchcock has crafted a tale that weaves in and out and all around, keeping me guessing until the final page was turned. The White City is a story I wont soon forget!"
Kathleen YBarbo, author of The Alamo Bride,The Pirate Bride and My Heart Belongs in Galveston, Texas
The White City offers up a terrific adventure of murder and intrigue that transcends far beyond exotic exhibits and cotton candy at the Chicago Worlds Fair. The ebb and flow of the story was consistent in moving the story along at a nice clip without lending way to obvious predictability. Her timing was spot on when the spotlight was finally cast on the villain. Well done Ms. Hitchcock! I look forward to the next installment in this series.
