Title: A Respectable Actress
Author: Dorothy Love
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Publishing
India Hartley, a famous and beautiful actress, finds herself on the wrong side of the law when she is accused of killing her co-star, Arthur Sterling.
In steps Philip Sinclair, Savannah’s best and handsomest lawyer, to defend her. But this southern gentleman has his own troubles as he grieves for his dead wife and struggles to restore his worn out plantation on Simon’s Island to its former glory.
Piecing together clues in an abandoned boat and a burned out chapel, India discovers a trail of dark secrets that lead back to Philip. Secrets that might ultimately hold the key to her freedom.
Why I think you should read it:
I enjoy reading historical fiction based on the true lives of others. Through a little romance into the mix and you have me hooked. Author Dorothy Love creates the perfect “damsel in distress” through her main character, India. Beautiful and used to captivating large audiences through her stage performances, India must now place her trust in a perfect stranger when she is accused of murder.
Philip Sinclair, lawyer extraordinaire, will have to decide if he can trust India with his own dark secrets. There are enough secrets, suspense, and twisty turns to keep a reader glued to their seat as they fly through the pages to see what happens next. A book well worth reading. I just might have to check out what other books this author has to offer.
