The year is 1911 when twenty-year-old heiress Peggy Batternberg is invited to spend the summer in America’s Playground.

    In researching and writing this novel, I deeply immersed myself in a dazzling New York City of over a century ago and created characters that months later I can't seem to get out of my head. :) I hope my readers enjoy this novel of suspense. Here is my post for my author blog on how I got the idea for the book: http://nancybilyeau.blogspot.com/2019...

    I love all of Nancy Bilyeau’s books, and yet, this is my favorite! She captures 1911 Coney Island and Dreamland so vividly that I could taste the hotdogs and the cotton candy and feel like I’m right in the middle of the action in this lively, crazy amusement park. When Peggy, the rebellious 20 year old protagonist from a wealthy Manhattan family reminiscent of the real life Guggenheims, is forced into spending the summer with her family in a luxurious hotel near Coney Island, she escapes to the ...more

    I read an advance copy of this and I LOVED it! I couldn’t put it down. The setting is so vividly described, I actually mourned that I couldn’t go and visit Dreamland. The characters are some of the most fully realized I’ve read in a long time. If you enjoyed Downton Abbey and want something from that time, set in the US, but with a delicious murder mystery thrown in, you will love this book.
