Meg and Sylvie Townsend manage the family bookshop and care for their father, Stephen, a veteran still suffering in mind and spirit from his time as a POW during the Civil War. But when the Great Fire sweeps through Chicago's business district, they lose much more than just their store.

The sisters become separated from their father and make a harrowing escape from the flames with the help of Chicago Tribune reporter Nate Pierce. Once the smoke clears away, they reunite with Stephen, only to learn soon after that their family friend was murdered on the night of the fire. Even more shocking, Stephen is charged with the crime and committed to the Cook County Insane Asylum.

Though homeless and suddenly unemployed, Meg must not only gather the pieces of her shattered life, but prove her father's innocence before the asylum truly drives him mad.

I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in

Chicago is in the top 3 cities I want to visit in the US. My
niece is moving there next month, so hopefully we will be
able to finally get there. Thank you so much for giving these
sites to visit to discover the history of the fire. They are the
types of things we look for when we travel. Veiled In Smoke
sounds like a good book.

I am very familiar with Chicago, as my relatives lived there and we used to go there often. I would love to read this novel as well as others you have written. Thanks for having a contest!

Jocelyn is one of my favorite authors. I'm looking forward
to reading "Veiled in Smoke".

I've never read much about the 1871 fire that destroyed the business district of Chicago. It sounds like a heartbreaking time for many and seems to be important to the plot. A Civil War veteran with problems adds another dimension. We hear many stories about the problems our veterans have nowadays, but there must have been many from the Civil War that were never told. This is a book I would enjoy reading. Thank you for the contest.

This book looks amazing. I'm a history fanatic so this book is
calling out to me.
