A Daring Venture

Here’s the first line:

Connecticut, 1890

“You and your brother are to go to the music room, close the door, and don’t come out until I say you can.”

As a biochemist in early 1900s New York, Doctor Rosalind Werner has dedicated her life to the crusade against waterborne diseases. She is at the forefront of a groundbreaking technology that will change the way water is delivered to every household in the city–but only if she can get people to believe in her work.

Newly appointed Commissioner of Water for New York, Nicholas Drake is highly skeptical of Rosalind and her team’s techniques. When a brewing court case throws him into direct confrontation with her, he is surprised by his reaction to the lovely scientist.

While Rosalind and Nick wage a private war against their own attraction, they stand firmly on opposite sides of a battle that will impact far more than just their own lives. As the controversy grows more public and inflammatory and Rosalind becomes the target of an unknown enemy, the odds stacked against these two rivals swiftly grow more insurmountable with every passing day.

  1. I love that cover! I shared from Of Fire And Lions by Mesu Andrews today on my blog, but here I will share from the last book I got in the mail.

    “Elsie closed her eyes for a moment and breathed in the steamy air, imagining she stood beside Grand Pinnacle Spring instead of the massive laundry boiler in the back of the Mammoth Hot Springs Lodge.” — Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  2. Happy Friday!

    This week on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from All Made Up by Kara Isaac. It’s such a fantastic novel. I highly recommend it. You can go to my post by clicking the link: https://tinyurl.com/Friday83. Currently, I am reading Weddings, Willows, and Revised Expectations by V. Joy Palmer. It’s really good. I’m on chapter seven, so I will share a line from there.

    “Don’t see me. Don’t see me. Don’t see me. ‘Courtney!’ Walk faster. Walk faster. Walk faster. ‘Courtney!’ Dallas yelled. ‘Please! We need to talk.'”

    Hope you have a blessed Easter weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤️📚

  3. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from my current read, Spring Magic by D.E. Stevenson. This is the first line from Chapter 18:

    “This was the day upon which Frances had been invited to take tea at the Castle, and, as always, there were half a dozen people ready and willing to advise her how to attain her objective.”

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
