And Only to Deceive / Tasha Alexander / 310 pages
This historical suspense novel set in Victorian England, and Paris, and Africa is absolutely mesmerizing. It comes close to being labeled a romance but rises above the genre by focusing on atmosphere, psychology, ancient Greece, well-known artists and their works, and the indomitable heroine's determination to delve into the character of her late husband. Frequent plot twists keep the reader guessing to the very end.
