Review of "Echoes of Mercy"
When a suspicious accident occurs at the Dinsmore Chocolate Factory in Sinclair, Kansas, in 1904, Caroline Lang goes undercover as a factory worker to investigate. Oliver Dinsmore, heir to the Dinsmore candy dynasty, has his own investigation to conduct. Posing as a common worker known as “Ollie Moore,” he aims to find out all he can about the family business before he takes over for his father.
MY REVIEW: To work in a chocolate factory brings memories of Lucy & Ethel in the chocolate factory and mess and mishaps abounding. But this factory hires children to work because they can offer them a low pay. Caroline goes in to work there as an undercover worker to find out what is going on and what happened to the previous investigator who died in an elevator accident. Caroline begins to fall in love with Ollie and neither of them knows the truth about the other. Will they find the answers without their own lives being endangered? Will they ever be able to live a life together? or are their stations in life too far apart? The description of the diner where they eat their meals sounds so delightful that I wish I could pop over there for dinner myself. This is a 5 ***** read and keeps the reader on their toes.
I received a free copy of this book from bloggingforbooks.org in exchange for my honest review.
