Clean Christian Romance with Mystery & Suspense
This book is a Christian romance with mystery and suspense weaved throughout this story. It takes place in New York City and inside the law firm of Hamilton-Hamilton-Hamilton. A law suit against the Winterbottom Corporation for the death of an employee, well actually multiple employees, but the rest of the cases were just dismissed. A new attorney enters the firm, Bruce Malone, and given the case, he is from the area and a well to do family. Elizabeth Smith, from East Tennessee, gave up being an attorney and moved to NYC when her aunt willed her townhouse to her and she is content being a legal assistant. She is tired of being an "ugly Betty" and looking like a drab outdated hippy and has a complete makeover, from her hair to her clothing. No pretty assistants are allowed for the senior Mr. Hamilton and she is uprooted from her position and moved because of a wife who would be jealous. Elizabeth is moved down to become the new legal assistant to Mr. Malone. Add in two differently raised families, one Catholic and one Baptist. How about one being the 8th child and only daughter of a Baptist preacher. Stir in some crime, mysterious phone calls, break-ins, unexplained deaths, blackmail and threats and what do you get, a fantastic page turning story!

Just finished reading The Painted Lady and I loved it! I was unsure of it when I read the synopsis if I even wanted to read The Painted Lady, but went ahead and read it since I enjoyed another book by Felicia Rogers (There Your Heart Will Be Also). I'm glad I did. I enjoyed it from beginning to the end. A cute story with an interesting story line. I enjoyed the heroin and the real life experiences that she goes through with her family work and love life. The hero of the story had a great personality. I liked that the girl struggled over having a relationship with a non-believer and that the guy didn't just become a Christian so he could have the girl. The only frustrating thing was the supporting cast kept saying they were trying to protect the heroine from something and the information wasn't revealed until almost 3/4 the way through the story.
