In the Company of Secrets, by Judith Miller

(Postcards from Pullman, book 1)
From the Publisher:

The truth could cost her everything....

Olivia Mott didn't intend to lie. Somehow, it just happened. And wasn't it all Lady Charlotte's fault anyway?

Now Olivia's position as assistant chef at Pullman's elegant Hotel Florence is dependant upon her keeping her secrets. And sometimes lies have a way of leading to other lies. Should Olivia admit her real past and accept the consequences or keep quiet in order to preserve her comfortable new circumstances?

Deception seems to be part of everyday life in the company town of Pullman, Illinois, where the grand Pullman Palace Car is manufactured. Samuel Howard, Olivia's friend and the town manager, seems to think everything is fine, but Olivia observes something quite different. Could it be that Olivia is not the only one harboring secrets?

My Review:

I have really enjoyed other Judith Miller books that I read, especially the Amana colony books. This book was ok, but it wasn’t my favorite by this author. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good book; I just prefer her others.

As always, Judith Miller has well-developed characters that you feel like you know pretty well by the time you finish a book. Like with other books of hers that I’ve read, there was that one character that you just wanted to slap because they were so annoying and then there were other characters that you wanted to be best friends with.

Overall, this was a good story. The book had a good plot that kept you reading to find out how it would all be resolved. I would recommend this book.

I am under no obligation to write a review, positive or negative.
