Josephine Is Forced to Spy for Grave RobbersStep into True Colors -- a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime

In Massachusetts in 1824, Josephine Clayton awakes on the table of the doctor she's assisted all these months. She was presumed dead by all and has become the doctor's next corpse for his medical research. Frightened, the doctor tries to kill her, but Josephine begs to be spared. A deal is struck--Josie will leave her village and work at a distant cotton mill. All the while, she'll await her true mission--posing as a mourner to help his body snatcher procure her replacement. At the mill though, Josie is praised for her medical remedies among the mill girls, gaining attention from the handsome factory manager Braham Terrance. Yet, when Braham's own loved one becomes the prey for the next grave robbing, Josie must make a choice that could put her dark past behind her or steal away the promise of any future at all.

What price will Josie pay for love when her secrets begin to unravel?

My Thoughts
This is the third book in the True Colors collection. These books are beautifully written with so much depth and detail. Angie Dicken is a truly talented author, and took a piece of history, added fictional details and beautifully created characters, and turned the readers onto a novel that will wrap you up and take you on a ride of a life time.
The Yellow Latern has the perfect amount of suspenseful happenings within it. Each page turn brought me further into the life of Josephine Clayton, and what brought her to working as a healer. Her characters is strong willed, determined and very much in need of knowing the truth behind the body snatching. I fell in love with her instantly!
And let’s not forget her boss, Braham Taylor. My heart warmed to him and loved every second of watching him with Josie.
Four stars go to this terrifically written novel. Filled with facts and fiction, this novel captivates the reader in a way that makes them feel as if they are right beside the characters, living through it with them. Dicken has a beautiful talent and it shouldn’t be missed by any one! Well done, Dicken,well done!
