“From this Moment” by Elizabeth Camden

I recently had the chance to read From this Moment, by Elizabeth Camden. This fiction book was published on June 7, 2016, by Bethany House.

About this book (from the back cover):

Stella West’s artistic talent made her the toast of London, but when her beloved sister dies under mysterious circumstances she abandons everything and heads for Boston. With single-minded determination she fights to pierce the ring of secrecy surrounding her sister’s death. Upon meeting Romulus White, a publisher with connections into every important power circle in the city, she quickly realizes he could be a valuable ally in navigating Boston society.

Romulus has been pursuing Stella for years to create art for his magazine. Her luminous illustrations are the missing piece he needs to propel his magazine to the forefront of the industry, and he will stop at nothing to get her on board.

Sparks fly the instant they join forces, but Romulus is unsettled by the unwelcome attraction he feels toward Stella, fearing she might be the one woman who could disrupt his hard-won independence. He may have finally met his match in Stella, but is helping her solve the mystery of her sister’s death worth the risk to his publishing empire?

Final Verdict:

If you’re looking for a historical fiction book to take to the beach this summer, “From this Moment” would be a great choice! There’s an element of “His Girl Friday” with the romance being set in the publishing business, which is fun, and the murder mystery keeps this book from being a cookie cutter romance. The story is set in Boston in 1897 during the creation of one of the world’s first subways, and Camden has done her research on the location and time period, with lots of little details that make the story more interesting. Good book!

If you’d like to check out From this Moment it is currently on sale for $8.13 for the Kindle version. (Regularly $14.99.) If you prefer a paperback copy, it’s currently on sale for $8.56. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.
