A hushed-up murder sends Emmeline St. Germaine on a quest for justice
Having chosen to go to a women’s institution rather than live under her brother’s oppressive thumb, Emmeline is second-guessing her decision. Her ulterior motive was to learn under what circumstances her sister died there six years ago, but the conditions are dismal, the treatment is harsh, and the women are restricted on all sides. When one of the women is murdered, Emmeline resolves to solve the crime despite the powerful owner’s hostile insistence that the death was a suicide.
As she uncovers what little evidence there is to be found, Emmeline’s investigation is thwarted at every turn by the increasingly severe restrictions on her movement—until she discovers that the mistreated help belowstairs are more than willing to reveal the institute’s grim secrets. Determined to honor the victim’s memory and follow the trail to the murderer wherever it goes, Emmeline will have to face down thuggish guards and abusive staff, fearful all the while of the price she’ll pay to bring a killer to justice.

This story seems very intriguing, suspenseful. Just the
description had me there with her defending the victims
honor! lol I love the braveness and fight this character has
for a leading female. I'm not even a reader but I need to
see how this ends. Then I see you have so many books! This
one is going on my Christmas list right now but now I have
to go see what the rest are about. My list probably just
grew quite a bit lol.
