Secrets of Sloane House byShelley Gray is a Christian cozy mystery. It is the first book in the Chicago World’s Fair series. Rosalind grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and is not used to city life. But when her sister Miranda stops writing, the family wants to know what happened to her. Rosalind is sent to Chicago to discover what happened to her sister. Rosalind obtains a job at Sloane House where her sister worked before she disappeared. Life on the farm did not prepare Rosalind for living in the city or working in such a fancy home.
Reid Armstrong is a friend of Douglass Sloane. Reid feels loyal to Douglass because of help he gave Reid at boarding school. However, Douglass’ is hanging out with an undesirable crowd and Reid is not comfortable with them. Reid comes from a Christian home and has very different values from the Sloane’s. Reid is attracted to Rosalind. After hearing about Rosalind’s missing sister, Reid wants to help her.
Reid and Rosalind set out to find Miranda or at least discover what happened to her. Secrets of Sloane House is set in 1893 while the World’s Fair is in Chicago. There are great descriptions of the pavilions, displays, and the Ferris wheel. Secrets of Sloane House has romance and mystery. I give Secrets of Sloane House 4.5 out of 5 stars. It is well-written, engaging, and intriguing!
