Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

The chance to break the big story is all Charlotte needs to secure her future. But when the truth comes out―it may cost her the love of her life.

Newport, Rhode Island, in 1900―a glamorous resort town where the rich and famous go to see and be seen.

Charlotte Hale isn't part of that world. She's a working girl, a secretary for a local newspaper, who dreams of becoming a real reporter. When her boss offers her an assignment, she jumps at the opportunity. She'll go undercover as a governess to investigate a scandal about her new employer, Daniel Wilmont, a young widowed professor of religion who writes a controversial column in a rival newspaper.

Charlotte's qualms about misrepresenting herself to Daniel soon morph into a deeper quandary. How can she get the goods on a man who turns out to be so honorable? How can she plot the downfall of a family that has inspired her to rediscover her faith? And how can she protect the man she now loves from a scheme she's been part of since the beginning?

A fascinating tale of love and faith in the Gilded Age . . . from the author of Love on a Dime.

"James uses carefully described settings and characters . . . to dramatically contrast life in the Gilded Age in Newport, Rhode Island, between the working class and the wealthy." ―Booklist
