About the Book:

Josephine Is Forced to Spy for Grave Robbers
Step into True Colors — a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime

In Massachusetts in 1824, Josephine Clayton awakes on the table of the doctor she’s assisted all these months. She was presumed dead by all and has become the doctor’s next corpse for his medical research. Frightened, the doctor tries to kill her, but Josephine begs to be spared. A deal is struck–Josie will leave her village and work at a distant cotton mill. All the while, she’ll await her true mission–posing as a mourner to help his body snatcher procure her replacement. At the mill though, Josie is praised for her medical remedies among the mill girls, gaining attention from the handsome factory manager Braham Terrance. Yet, when Braham’s own loved one becomes the prey for the next grave robbing, Josie must make a choice that could put her dark past behind her or steal away the promise of any future at all.

What price will Josie pay for love when her secrets begin to unravel?

The Yellow Lantern


My Thoughts:


This is the second book I’ve read apart of the True Colors: Historical Stories of American Crime Series, and I’m enjoying it so much. They are so fascinating! Being based on true crime, they kind of focus on the…darker aspects of life, however, they aren’t too heavy or scary-dark that they are off-putting, in my opinion. :) “The Yellow Lantern” tells the story of grave-robbers – what a morbid occupation for certain! As I said, I find the true crime stories really interesting, and this was no exception. The heroine, Josephine Clay, was a lovely character and easy to root for. Hero Braham was an upstanding character with a story to tell as well, and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow.I look forward to reading more from this intriguing and enjoyable series!




**I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher; all opinions in my review are my own – I was not required to write a review.


I am a peculiar treasure who is passionately in love with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love writing, reading, knife/tomahawk-throwing, and letter-writing, among other things. :)
