A Respectable Actress by Dorothy Love Review

A Respectable Actress
The story opens in Savannah, Georgia in late 1870, where India Hartley is performing on her own after losing her father. The highly regarded and famous actress is preparing to go onstage when the director demands that she make a last minute change- using a stage gun to shoot Arthur Sterling, the city’s most loved actor, rather than throw a vase at him. When the shot rings out, Arthur collapses and dies and India is drawn into a mystery. Why did the gun have real bullets? Who prompted the change? And how will India be able to convince a judge of her innocence in the death of their city’s favorite actor? After a night in the jail, India is released to Philip Sinclar, a widowed lawyer who is hired by a wealthy local woman to represent her. Sinclair arranges to have India removed from the area to his plantation on Indigo Point, where she will be out of the eyes of the reporters who are eager to find her. Sinclair hopes to be able to make enough money to rebuild his plantation home which had been neglected and partially destroyed during the war. There, India quickly finds that the island holds a mystery of its own and she is drawn into intrigue once again. The story begins to twist as India is attracted to Philip and then is rebuffed by his staff. Ms. Love continues to introduce intrigue and weave mystery around the characters as the story unfolds. I find her writing to be fresh and the historical references add to the enjoyment of this book.
