There are the families we’re born into. And the families we create. Both contain secrets and lies.
November 1890. A young woman in a questionable profession has been attacked, but she has no recollection of the events leading up to the attack. Julia Thom risks her job and her personal reputation to help Constable Jack Merrick find the culprit.
When a powerful local landowner gets involved, matters become messier and by the end of the day, Julia and Merrick have a longer suspect list than when they started.
Complicating matters, Julia finds herself having unfamiliar and unwelcome feelings about the local constable. She was decidedly more comfortable when they weren’t getting along.
