In 1865, Elizabeth Keckley, Mary Todd Lincoln’s dressmaker, conspired to change the course of the Civil War. Crossing lines between North and South, the band of conspirators wove a plan that remained undiscovered for more than 150 years until Antique Hunter Anne Hillstrom finds one of Keckley’s gowns. She and fellow Antique Hunter CC Muller unravel the mystery that has left a trail of dead bodies, leading to the doorstep of their antique store, Great-Aunt Sybil’s Attic.

My Review





The reason I wanted to read this book was Elizabeth Keckley, she made gowns for Mary Todd Lincoln, so I knew this would interest me.
We travel around the state of Illinois, and with President Lincoln being from there, it is full of historical sites and information, which I found very interesting, including lots of antique stores.
The author has us with antique hunters Ann Hillstrom and C. C. Muller, and of course we have the Keckley gown, now I would love to see it, and I guess there are a lot of others who would too.
The story seems to have a lot of surprises, and I never expected the ending! Come and get lost in a historical dress murder mystery!
I received this book through Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
