"A Daring Venture"

See the source image

"A Daring Venture" is book #2 in Elizabeth Camden's Empire State series and it is another excellent book by her!  I am really enjoying this series as it is filled with historical detail, great characters and intriguing storylines and a added perk of New York being my home state!
Rosalind is out to advocate clean drinking water in every home, and has been working against waterborne diseases and she is at the front of the latest research and work in this field.  However, there are many who are skeptical of this work and  the methods leading to divisions among the city and individuals directly involved.  Nick who is the Commissioner of Water for the city is one of the skeptics and he is firm in his position just as Rosalind is in hers.  However, it is hard to fight against their attraction to each other as well.
This book is a nice mixture of adventure, suspense and romance.  I love the historical details to the story as I love reading about different time periods and this is fascinating as to how New York was just over 100 years ago as this was time for such big changes and advancements.  I am really looking forward to the next book in the series as one of the minor characters will be the main character, Eloise, as she was an intriguing character in this book.  I highly recommend Elizabeth's books as there has not been 1 to disappoint me yet!
