Drew and Madeline must solve the murder of a certain Mr. Lincoln and Drew's mother, but things are not as they seem. Soon it appears not to have been Lincoln at all who was killed, and more and more people seem to have deaths related to this case. And when Mason Parker, Drew's stepfather and Madeline's uncle, is accused of being top dog in the scheme, things get much much more complicated.
I'm giving this book 5 stars.
1: It will keep you guessing the entire time! I did mostly have it solved right soon, but with as many twists and turns as a ride a Carowinds, I found there were a few small points on which I was incorrect.
2: Madeline and Drew are so adorable. Too adorable for words. But they're constantly calling each other darling in the sweetest way imaginable.
3: If you enjoy being swept into a historical work in such a way that you feel yourself truly in that time, then this book, and this series, are definitely for you! (Warning: British period drama cravings will ensue!)
4: I loved how Madeline kept pushing Drew to what he needed to do to get right with God. It was sweet and amazing, and only upped the level of adorableness.
5: I don't think any review is complete without mention of Mr. Dennison, affectionately called Denny by Drew, and his incorrigible son Nick, who just happens to be Drew's best friend. Quite the pair, the two of them. And I guarantee that you'll love them as much as I do!
