Book Description from the publisher:
The World's Fair is nearing its end, but the danger in Chicago lingers.
It's mid-September of 1893 and Eloisa Carstairs is the reigning beauty of
Gilded Age Chicago society. To outsiders she appears to have it all. But Eloisa
is living with a dark secret. Several months ago, she endured a horrible assault
at the hands of Douglass Sloane, heir to one of Chicago's wealthiest families.
Fearing the loss of her reputation, Eloisa confided in only one friend. That is,
until she meets Detective Sean Ryan at a high-society ball.
Sean is on the outskirts of the wealthy Chicago lifestyle. Born into a poor
Irish family, becoming a policeman was his best opportunity to ensure his future
security. Despite society's restrictions, he is enamored with Eloisa Carstairs.
Sean seethes inside at what he knows happened to her, and he will do anything to
keep her safe-even if he can never earn her affections. .
Eloisa longs to feel normal again in the midst of the danger surrounding the
Chicago World's Fair, but a killer is on the loose. In the last month, three
debutants have been accosted in the city by an assailant wielding a stiletto. As
the danger in the city increases, and as Eloisa's and Sean's romance blossoms,
they both realize they want to be seen as more than how the world views them.
But will they catch the killer before all their hopes come tumbling down?

"Deception on Sable Hill" is an excellent addition to this series; I liked book #1 and I liked this one even more! Eloisa and Sean have such different backgrounds and yet there is such a bond that is formed between them. This is a page-turner as the society slasher strikes again and again and Eloisa and Sean try to figure this out as well as protect themselves. I found the story so easy to read as I was immediately drawn into the story and held captive until the end.
