About the Book

Secrets Sealed Within a Wall Come to Light in Lower Manhattan
Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.

Investigative historical journalist Andrea Andrews is tired of waiting tables to make ends meet. If she could find and write the next breakout story, she could secure a promotion with Smithsonian Magazine as their writer-at-large. But not much happens in lower Manhattan out of the ordinary until she discovers post-Civil War counterfeit bills hidden in the wall of her historic district apartment.
Politics have always been Beau Davidson-Quincy’s passion, despite his family’s real estate empire. His clean image and single status make him a target in the media as he prepares to build his campaign for New York governor. He has nothing to hide until a cute waitress unravels a mystery that could destroy his family’s reputation.
Two centuries earlier, wounded Civil War veteran Franklin Davidson lost everything—his house, his wife, his standing in society. In his darkest moment, he’s awarded a position with the newly formed Secret Service to combat the spread of counterfeit U.S. currency. His life and new home in Gramercy Park are the envy of his peers, but nothing is as it seems. Secrets are meant to be kept, and Franklin will take his to his grave.

Review of The Keys to Gramercy Park

The Keys to Gramercy Park by Candice Sue Patterson was a great read. I loved the dual time periods and the storyline (both storylines that interconnected) drew me in from the beginning. She is a masterful storyteller and definitely knows how to keep her readers interested. I loved reading about olden day New York City and then again modern day New York City and the differences between the two. I loved how the majority of the story was told from male points of view with only one female, Andrea, adding her feminine voice to the mix. I also loved how Franklin and Edward were twins a fact I kept forgetting until Franklin was accused of all Edward’s crimes. My heart hurt for the terrible upbringing they had with their father and for Franklin having to pay for Edward’s shortcomings. Beau was probably the character I liked least, not because there was anything wrong with him; simply because I enjoyed the other storylines and characters much better. Great story, lots of action and the mystery of the counterfeit money was so much fun.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book to read and all opinions were my own.

Thanks for connecting today.
