Fantastic historical fiction

Having read the previous books in The True Colors series, I was excited to read The Black Midnight by Kathleen Y'Barbo. I was not disappointed. The authors of the series take true crime stories from American history and bring readers historical romantic suspense fiction. The fast-moving plot is fantastic--an unlikely pair of Pinkerton detectives are assigned to discover a Texas serial killer who just might be Jack the Ripper. It is evident the author has done her research and makes history come alive. I felt as if I was right there in the midst of the scenes. With vivid descriptions of London palaces and Texan mansions, Y'Barbo quickly brings readers into the settings of her book. The characters are likable and relatable--Annie, direct, to the point in her demeanor and yet conflicted in her emotions; Ike, knowing what he wanted, yet fearing he'd have to settle for second best. I loved Granny and Miss Hattie, down to earth, and full of love and advice for Annie and Ike. I appreciated how the author gives readers 'the rest of the story' at the end of the book, explaining where she bent history a bit to fit her story and what some of the facts behind The Black Midnight are. Unsolved murders, suspense, and romantic tension, lovers of historical romance stories will not want to miss this gripping addition to True Colors, True Crime series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions are my own.
