Publisher's Summary

An exciting new series featuring woman-on-the-run Elizabeth Miles - from the beloved national best-selling author of the Gaslight Mysteries.

Every woman plays a part - but some are more dangerous than others.

Like most women, Elizabeth Miles assumes many roles; unlike most, hers have made her a woman on the run. Living on the edge of society, Elizabeth uses her guile to relieve so-called respectable men of their ill-gotten gains. But brutal and greedy entrepreneur Oscar Thornton is out for blood. He's lost a great deal of money and is not going to forgive a woman for outwitting him. With his thugs hot on her trail, Elizabeth seizes the moment to blend in with a group of women who have an agenda of their own.

She never expects to like or understand these privileged women, but she soon comes to respect their intentions, forming an unlikely bond with the wealthy matriarch of the group whose son, Gideon, is the rarest of species - an honest man in a dishonest world. Elizabeth knows she's playing a risky game, and her deception could be revealed at any moment, possibly even by sharp-eyed Gideon. Nor has she been forgotten by Thornton, who's biding his time, waiting to strike. Elizabeth must draw on her wits and every last ounce of courage she possesses to keep her new life from being cut short by this vicious shadow from her past.

A new series for me to enjoy.

I am huge fan of “The Gaslight Mystery” series and when I came across this “Counterfeit Lady” series written by the same author I was excited!

Book 1 was pretty good, I enjoyed it, didn’t love it, didn’t hate it… overall there was enough to keep me motivated and curious about Book 2.

If I end up enjoying Elizabeth and Gideon as much as I do Frank and Sarah, I’m in for a few good reads.

Can't finish it due to narrator

The narrator does an ok performance when she's actually reading. It is the long pauses between sentences that is driving me mad. Too distracting and so strange.

Wonderful blend of fact and fiction

An enjoyable story set during WWI and the suffrage movement. Elizabeth is a thief and a liar who gets herself arrested to avoid being caught by a "mark". This chance encounter with some supporters of woman's suffrage, not only lands her in jail but right in the middle of a con to save her life. Everything would be perfect except for the honest as they come lawyer who threatens her plans and her heart. Loved listening to this story during my daily commute.

Twisted Plot

I was not expecting there to be lesbians in this book. If you’re not comfortable with it, be prepared for it or rethink about purchasing this book.
