I love the concept of this series and the first novel, The White City, was very well done The next two have missed the mark for me In The Yellow Lantern the subject matter is at once gruesome and fascinating The story line and romance, however, didn t hold my interest after the initial pages which were engaging.My gratitude to publisher Barbour for a complimentary copy of the novel I was not required to post a review and the opinions expressed are my own. FTC Disclosure NetGalley gave me a complimentary copy of this ebook A positive review was not required These are my honest thoughts.Wow From beginning to end, this story swept me away, into the gothic night of 1820s Massachusetts, where graves were being robbed and hearts shattered.The opening scene was so shocking and vividly written with powerful wording that I knew I was in for an adventure vintage actor Peter Lorre would probably have starred in as a show stealing secondary character The further in I got, the I found to love about the book That first impression of creepy gothic vibes grew stronger with each fresh turn of events Yet, there was a thin thread of hope that tenuously broadened and lengthened until the final page revealed it wasn t a thread alone but the complete foundation upon which the whole book was compiled.I m interested to see from Mrs Dicken Are all of her stories so vividly told Do they each sweep the reader away to another moment in time Has she written any other gothic tales or will she This is definitely a genre in which she shines.

Author Angie Dicken tells a tale which is both chilling and makes you pull for the main characters as they are so likable It s hard to describe this story as it sweeps you away to another time and place, 1824 in Massachusetts Josie, the heroine, is forced to work with a less than savory character in their search for medical answers As the story unwinds you hold your breath, as the tempo increases while the pages fly past your fingers It combines the perfect notes of chilling scenes, burgeoning love, and a heroine to empathize with I ve had the pleasure of reading all of her books, and this one is as fantastic as the others she s written.I m not saying anything else, because, you need to read this for yourself.I received this book from the publishing house and was under no obligation to write a review. See Full Review At Step back in time to 1824 when medical science is rudimentary at best and exploratory science is booming A dead body on the black market was worth a small fortune, and once you started down that path, it was impossible to navigate the twists and turns to find your way out.When Josephine Clayton wakes up on the doctors examining table, with him standing over her ready to perform the post mortem Her life is spared, but she is ruthlessly thrown into a dark secretive ring of body snatchers Eager to find her way out of the endless maze of dead end scenarios Josephine goes along with the plot to provide 1 body in place of her own on the condition that the person isn t murdered But will she find the price too high Working at a cotton mill as a cover for her secret mission, she reluctantly makes friends and quickly realizes that the spider web she has found herself in only tangles around her tighter.I enjoyed learning about the cotton mill and meeting the girls that worked there Each element of this story is so carefully crafted and realistic I felt like I was part of that world I could almost hear the steam of the machines as they roared to life and see the bits of cotton floating in the air I could see little Liesel, the bobbin girl sitting along the wall with her basket, ready to leap up and help at a moments notice.With vivid characters and an exciting plot, this page turning romantic suspense will keep you up late into the night, turning pages and trying to discover what will happen next I loved the unexpected twists and turns I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author publisher I am not required to write a positive review My thoughts and opinions are my own.
