“In this charming romance set in 1911 Penzance, England,” a mysterious crime brings an innocent young maid together with a handsome constable (Publishers Weekly). Cornwall, 1911. Young lady’s maid Effie Pengelly is confused and alarmed when a constable comes to question her regarding an unidentified dead man. Though Alexander Dawes is quite charming, the matter is grave indeed. It seems the mysterious man had come to town asking for Effie’s whereabouts just the day before. She tells Alex honestly that she’d never seen the man before. But even as the investigation moves on, he seeks out any excuse to talk to Effie. As the weeks go by, an undeniable connection sparks between Alex and Effie. But the well-born Constable knows his family would never allow him to marry a miner’s daughter. As the mysteries of love and crime collide, and Alex’s investigation leads to some surprising discoveries, it may also lead Alex and Effie to the future they deserve.
