A Daring Venture (Empire State #2) by Elizabeth Camden

As a biochemist in early 1900s New York, Doctor Rosalind Werner has dedicated her life to the crusade against water-borne 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 Nickolas 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, these two rivals will face higher stakes than they ever could have known.

My Review

As I opened this book the story just kept getting better and better, and right to the last page I was captivated.
What a world the author gives us, and yes, we learn that there is some fact here, and what a gift of saving lives, even if most is fictional. We are shown a very different world for woman here, to be accused of a crime and feel shamed for it, today it would be laughed off, but for this talented and educated woman it was a curse.
I wanted to smack her sister in law, but I had to remind myself that she had lost a lot, but so ungrateful.
If you enjoy a great story, with a bit of sweet romance this one has it all, and you sure won’t be disappointed.

I received this book through Bethany House and their Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
