Book Review: In Places Hidden

From the Back:

The search for her missing brother leads to the most dangerous part of the city . . .
Camrianne Coulter's brother Caleb is a successful San Francisco attorney. But when three months go by without a word from the usually communicative Caleb, Camri boards a train to the booming West Coast city to find out for herself why he hasn't written. When she arrives at his home, nobody seems to know where he is, or what has become of him.

Camri's search for her brother leads her deep into the political corruption of the city--and into the acquaintance of Patrick Murdock, who Caleb successfully defended from a false murder charge. Getting to know this handsome Irish contractor challenges all of Camri's privileged beliefs, but Patrick is unshakably loyal to her brother, and he seems to know more about what happened to Caleb than anyone else. As the two edge closer to the truth behind Caleb's disappearance, they risk angering the powerful forces that control the city. Can Camri trust Patrick to protect her from the dangers that lie hidden in San Francisco's backstreets?
My Reflections:

This is book one of Tracie Peterson's newest series called Golden Gate Secrets. One thing you can count on with a novel penned by Peterson is her utmost attention to factual historical detail. 
This book is no different being set in San Fransisco year 1905, the setting truly is what inspired me. 

The story was a slow start and I didn't completely feel that I connected with the characters like I would have hoped. I did however really enjoy the historic aspects of this story. It is set just before a good part of San Fransico is destroyed by a massive earthquake which took many lives and basically flattened the city. Camriann (Camri) comes to San Fransisco to locate her missing brother. Along the way, she teams up with two other women, Judith Gladstone and Kenzie Gifford. Each of these ladies has their own reasons why they end up in the big city. Together they join forces and move in together, and secure jobs. While the backstory is somewhat murky on these two women I am sure in subsequent books more details will emerge.

The next instalments are set to be released in July 2018 (In Dreams Forgotten) September 2018 (In Times Gone By) If you are a Tracie Peterson fan you may like this new series, and if nothing else the setting is simply amazing!
