Maid of Oaklands Manor by Terri Nixon

England, 1912 is a place of rigid rules. A chance meeting between scullery maid Lizzy Parker and heiress Evie Creswell is about to break them all . . . 

Their meeting leads to more than an enduring friendship and a new job for Lizzy - it draws her into a world of privilege and intrigue and delivers her into the loving arms of a killer.

Meeting the handsome but mysterious Jack Carlisle, Lizzy begins to fall for him despite rumours he had been involved in the death of Evie's father. As she becomes further embroiled in the dangerous life that Carlisle lives, she must decide if he can be trusted with the life of a close friend, and, ultimately, if he is worth the risk to her own . . .
Review: This book is unlike any other historical romance, and it had my gripped until the very last page. The mysterious plot is filled with murder, excitement and intrigue, plus Lizzy and Evie are well written characters that had me rooting for them until the bitter end.
