She’s been careful to keep her distance, until the day one of them is found murdered and she quickly becomes the prime suspect.

Synopsis: 

Europe. 1963. And the true Cold War is fought on the borders of this world, at the edges of the light.

When the assassination of a traitor trading with the enemy goes terribly wrong, British Intelligence agent Christopher Winter must flee London. In a tense alliance with a lethal, mysterious woman named Karina Lazarova, he’s caught in a quest for hidden knowledge from centuries before, an occult secret written in a language of fire. A secret that will give supremacy to the nation that possesses it.

Racing against the Russians, the chase takes them from the demon- haunted Hungarian border to treasure-laden tunnels beneath Berlin, from an impossible house in Vienna to a bomb-blasted ruin in Bavaria where something unholy waits, born of the power of white fire and black glass . . .

It’s a world of treachery, blood and magic. A world at war in the dark.

Synopsis: 

Betty Stash is not a Beloved – one of those lucky people for whom nothing ever goes wrong. Everything falls into their laps without effort: happiness, beauty, good fortune, allure.

Her little sister, the delightful Gloria, is the one with the golden curls and sunny disposition and captivating smile, the one whose best friend used to be Betty’s, the one whose husband should have been Betty’s. And then, to everyone’s surprise, Gloria inherits the family manse – a vast, gorgeous pile of ancient stone, imposing timbers, and lush gardens – that was never meant to be hers.

Losing what Betty considers her rightful inheritance is the final indignity. As she single-mindedly pursues her plan to see the estate returned to her in all its glory, her determined and increasingly unhinged behaviour escalates to the point of no return.

An exploration of domestic derangement, as sinister as Daphne Du Maurier’s classic Rebecca, The Beloveds will have you wondering if there is any length to which an envious sister won’t go.

SPOTLIGHT: Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict

Hey guys! Today I am spotlighting Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict! I read The Other Einstein and it was absolutely fantastic! It was such an enthralling read and this one sounds equally exciting! Historical fiction is a fairly new genre for me to branch out to as I rarely read any historical books but The Other Einstein was such a phenomenal story. The writing was beautiful and so heart-wrenching at times.

I was excited when the publisher reached out to me about taking part in a blog tour for Carnegie’s Maid and I chose to spotlight it. The synopsis makes the story sound so empowering and it’s one I look forward to reading myself soon! Check out all the details below!

Synopsis: 

From the author of The Other Einstein, the mesmerizing tale of what kind of woman could have inspired an American dynasty.z

Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She’s not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh’s grandest households. She’s a poor farmer’s daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home.

If she can keep up the ruse, that is. Serving as a lady’s maid in the household of Andrew Carnegie requires skills she doesn’t have, answering to an icy mistress who rules her sons and her domain with an iron fist. What Clara does have is a resolve as strong as the steel Pittsburgh is becoming famous for, coupled with an uncanny understanding of business, and Andrew begins to rely on her. But Clara can’t let her guard down, not even when Andrew becomes something more than an employer. Revealing her past might ruin her future—and her family’s.

With captivating insight and heart, Carnegie’s Maid tells the story of one brilliant woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie’s transformation from ruthless industrialist into the world’s first true philanthropist.
