Into the Whirlwind Book Review


Into the Whirlwind
Picture Credit

After her father's death, Mollie Knox takes over his watchmaking company and uses her head for business 
 to solidify the good name of the 57th Illinois Watch Company. Her future looks bright until the night her beloved city is destroyed in the legendary Great Chicago Fire. With her world crumbling around her, Molly must do whatever it takes to save her company in the aftermath of the devastating fire.

Zack Kazmarek is an influential attorney with powerful ties to the political, mercantile, and ethnic roots of Chicago. His only weakness is Mollie Knox, a woman who has always been just beyond his reach. However, all bets are off after the fire destroys Chicago, and Mollie is in desperate need of assistance. Just as Zack finally begins to pursue the woman he loves, competition arises in the form of a hero from her past who can provide the help she needs to rise from the ashes.

While Mollie struggles to rebuild, the two men battle for her heart. One has always loved her, but the other has the power to save her. In the race to rebuild the city, can she survive with her business and her heart intact?





My Review

I am a fan of Elizabeth Camden, she has yet to disappoint. Into the Whirlwind was a fascinating look into the Great Chicago Fair. I had never read anything that was written during that time and I enjoyed how the author incorporated it into her storyline. I loved the characters, Mollie is so fun to read about, while Zack is infuriating, I wanted to yell at him a few times. I could not put this book down. I love how smart Mollie is and how the fire raged through the city and they were right in the middle of it all. I enjoyed how I got to read the side of Mollie trying to figure out her future. 
Another interesting fact was the Polish influence on the story line. I know little about that part in history and Camden did great research to add life to her story. 

I highly recommend!
