Overview

Theater of Illusion (Spirit of the River Series #3) by Kathy Steffen


Combining elements of mystery, history, and romance, this compelling narrative explores the river frontier of West Virginia to the Midwest in the 1900s. Unconventional for her time, Sarah Perkins is driven to excel and be successful in a man’s world despite her traumatic childhood under an abusive father who strictly enforced traditional gender roles. Dreaming of one day being a riverboat pilot, Sara embarks on an adventure aboard the Spirit of the River, a premier paddleboat on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. She’s spent hours behind the wheel under the supervision of the captain, Jeremy Smith—her friendly rival and romantic interest—and longs to prove her worth. When a traveling troupe of entertainers, Le Théatre d’Illusion, discovers that a cast member has suspiciously disappeared while a mysterious and deadly illness afflicts the rest of the passengers, Sarah will find herself tested in unimaginable ways. Suspenseful and thrilling, this dynamic novel of hidden secrets offers an unflinching look at serious issues such as alcoholism, suicide, and gender, while maintaining a lively storyline full of adventure, independence, and life on the river wild.

Kathy Steffen, please write more books. I got the first in this series as a Free Friday special. I liked it so much I purchased the next two in the series (although the second of the series doesn't seem to link to the other two). I enjoyed each of them and found myself looking to find more books by Kathy. Unfortunately, These are the only three I can find. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't stop. I highly recommend this book. If you haven't read First There is a River, I suggest that you read it first.

Love this series of books. This book takes you back to the characters from " first there is a river". Interesting tale with a hint of a ghost story

Started slow I thought but I did get into the story. I enjoyed this but not as much as "First There is a River" which drew me in from the first page.

I got the 1st book in the trilogy on a Free Friday offer and enjoyed it so much I purchased the next 2 books in the trilogy. This 3rd book seemed an extension of the 1st and I enjoyed revisiting the characters 10 years later.

All three good books, but #1 and #3 continue. Can't figure out why #2 is in the middle since it is so different. Am reading #2 right now, can hardly put it down. Author writes some compelling bad guys, certainly not your run of the mill villians.

I loved this book! It is a sequel to First, There is a River (even though it's the 3rd book in the Spirit of the River series). Easy, enjoyable reading that keeps your attention.
