The Traveling Sisterhood: Secrets of Sloan House, A Chicago World's Fair Mystery #Giveaway

Secrets of Sloan House, A Chicago World's Fair Mystery #Giveaway

The Chicago World's Fair of 1893 looks to have been incredible, but it was also incredibly dangerous for a woman out alone during those 6 months.  There were murders, kidnappings, and attacks on women of both the lower and upper classes while thousands upon thousands of people visited Chicago for the event.

But if you like Downton Abby or a good 19th century mystery (or both!) you'll absolutely love Secrets of Sloan House, the newest book from NY Times Best Seller Shelley Gray.  I was hooked from the first page, gripped by the mystery and the wonderful writing style of Miss Gray.  Already, I can't wait for the next book in the World's Fair Mystery series, though it won't be out until 2015.  If you don't win this copy of the book, you can find it at your nearest Family Christian Store or online.

Against the backdrop of the 1893 World’s Fair, a young woman finds employment with an illustrious Chicago family—a family who may guard the secret of her sister’s disappearance.




Sloane House is among the most gilded mansions of Gilded Age Chicago. Rosalind Perry, the new housemaid, pours the morning coffee before the hard gaze of her mistress.

“It’s simple, Rosalind,” she says. “I am Veronica Sloane, heiress to one of the country’s greatest fortunes. You are simply one in a long line of unsuitable maids.”

While Sloane House is daunting, the streets of Chicago are downright dangerous. The World’s Fair has brought a new kind of crime to the city . . . and a lonely young woman is always at risk. But when Rosalind accepts the friendship of Reid Armstrong, the handsome young heir to a Chicago silver fortune, she becomes an accidental rival to Veronica Sloane.

As Rosalind disguises her kinship to a missing maid, she probes the dark secrets of Sloane House and comes ever closer to uncovering her sister’s mysterious fate. A fate that everyone in the house seems to know . . . but which no one dares to name.
