Grace Hitchcock, with The White City being her debut novel in the series As you can see, they are historical stories of romance and American crime, which is what got my interest It must have been a late night when I was sleep deprived when I chose this one because somehow I mistook this for non fiction But since I agreed to it, I m going to read and review it anyway I tend to like my true crime well, true Strictly non fiction and the lines have blurred when it comes to putting these books out on that category, despite them being fiction With that said, I read the book with an open mind and it turned out to be rather good, all in all.The author chose a real serial killer to base her story on, H.H Holmes who was active at the time of the Chicago World s Fair when he had his famous hotel with the strangely built rooms on the upper floors There were bad rumors of all sorts about it, but it didn t stop people from staying there anyway, as rooms were hard to come by with people coming from all over the world to see the fair While I found the premise of the story a bit shaky, the story itself worked quite well and the characters were pretty likable By the end, I was pretty pulled into it and wanted to see how it was going to end It is listed as a Christian book but there wasn t an overload of that type matter as it went along, it just sort of blended in with what was going on I think romance readers will go for this series, especially those of a Christian nature My thanks for the advance electronic copy that was provided by NetGalley, author Grace Hitchcock, and the publisher for my fair review.Also on my BookZone blog flag 34 likesLike see review View all 7 comments Jan 28, 2019 Amanda Geaney Christian Shelf Esteem added it This book was not on my blogging

of her love interests, Detective Jude Thorpe, eating creole food for the first time were delightful This showed the impact that the World s Fair had on increasing cultural awareness It also served as a humorous and romantic scene.Grace Hitchcock crafted the plot well crafted I would describe this author as a weaver of words, interspersing, history, romance, mystery and idealism in perfect measure.One of the things I enjoyed the most was how clean The White City was It never lost its integrity and was never hokey The White City is absolute proof that you can write a Christian novel without being preachy Christian values came through naturally and appropriately This was especially impressive considering the background mystery was drawn from one of the evil serial killers in all of American history As a reader, I feared for the main characters Yet never once did the author describe the details of HH Holmes gruesome crimes.I loved every minute of The White City and had a hard time putting it down This novel is part of the True Colors a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime I hope to see of the characters we were introduced to in The White City They came to life on the page and it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the book.It s a rare book of which I can t find something wrong This is one of those perfect books I am proud to recommend Hitchcock s debut novel, The White City, to anyone who likes mystery and romance with a dash of history This would especially resonate with women young and old and teenage girls.I give The White City

However, I am a real history buff and a particular fan of the Gilded Age so I am quite familiar with this story There is actually a lot of accuracy with regards to his crimes and how he operated so the author obviously did a lot of research great details about the World s Fair too , but there was no investigation of him until much later However, I was so absorbed in the story that I enjoyed the
