Book Blast - A Deadly Truth by Joyce Proell



[Blurb]

Tainted in the eyes of Victorian society by his wife’s suicide, Doyle Flanagan turns a deaf ear to the baseless gossip and harsh rebukes. Ignoring his shattered reputation, he goes about his business, making money and enemies, and doing good works whenever his conscience gets the best of him. Arrested for murder, he is forced to rely on a feisty school administrator to solve the puzzle. As he struggles to prove his innocence, he realizes gaining the trust and loyalty of Cady Delafield may be more important than his freedom.

On a quest to locate a missing student, school matron Cady Delafield enters a stranger’s house and discovers the woman murdered. Driven to see the murderer brought to justice, she is determined to prevent any further tragedy even if it means joining forces with the very man accused of the atrocity. Against the wishes of her powerful family, she risks her job and reputation to learn the truth. But will the truth, once revealed, drive her away from the man she has come to love?


Passion and murder collide in 1880’s Chicago as they race to keep one step ahead of the police who want Doyle to pay for his crime. As the attraction between Cady and Doyle sizzles, they battle suspicions, lies and lethal actions to uncover the murderer before he destroys them both.

    1. Hi, Andra,

      Glad you could stop by again.

      My favorite part of writing ADT was walking around, in my imagination, in 1881. It's time travel which I would love to do for real.

  8. Hi Joyce! I'm sure glad I "met" you on this blog today. Romantic suspense is my fave genre for reading. It grabs my attention and holds it clear to the end of the story I'm into...longer than any other genre. I'm excited to find out Cady and Doyle's story and how they solve the crime and reach their Happy Ever After. Thanks for the post! jdh2690@gmail.com

  9. I'm intrigued by the title. There seems to me SO much difference between THE Deadly Truth and A Deadly Truth. "A" seems to carry so much more meaning and intrigue, to me. Just the difference that one article can make.
