Amelia Wagner’s life is turned upside down when she arrives home just in time to witness her father’s death from illness. Distraught but unwilling to return to her daft mother who has quickly remarried to a less-than honorable man Amelia throws herself into a task; saving her father’s newspaper from the ultimate fall a very dishonest company would like to see. As one thing leads to another Amelia joins forces with a man from “the other side” in an effort to uncover the truth once and for all.
I had to give up on this book. 100-and-something pages after beginning my mind was seriously beginning to wander to the other books I could be reading that are for more enjoyable. So I slammed this one shut and decided to give it a miss. Why? B. O. R. E. D. O. M. The characters were very colorless as was the plot. I believe this was partially due to how fast/slow things moved. Had things been sped up a bit it may have seemed like more was happening. But as it was, there wasn’t and so I find myself having given up on this story. Possibly I will come back to at another date, and by then there’s a good chance a second reading will have improved my view. After all I’ve read Carol Cox in the future and her books have been a delight. This one just didn’t click.
