The Spice King

There is no sweeter joy than finding an author who consistently publishes great romance, and for me, one such author is Elizabeth Camden. I love the way I never know what to expect from her books – mystery, adventure, heartwarming family stories, or journeys of self-discovery – and yet I know ex ...

A Desperate Hope

Accurate, detailed historical tales can be hard to come by which is why I treasure the work of Elizabeth Camden. Her newest novel, A Desperate Hope, is the third in her Empire State saga, a series that revolves around the history of clean water in New York. This story works fine as a stand-alone nov ...
