Genre: Historical Fiction, Christian Romance

Release Date: December 3, 2019

After losing the love of her life to a big city journalism job, Elissa Tillman pours herself into the suffragette movement and her secretarial work helping keep her father’s Pittsburgh newspaper afloat.

Cole Parker returns to the steel city with the phantom failures of his past nipping his heels. All he asks of the future is a second chance with the woman he once spurned.

The murder of a millionaire offers the perfect chance for Elissa to prove to her father and the world that she’s a serious journalist. But there’s a catch—she has to compete for the story. Against none other than Cole Parker, the very man who shattered her heart.

What a great debut novel and I must say I need more from Rachel Scott McDaniel!! I really hope that she is in the process of writing another great story.

Above the Fold takes you back to the 1920's! I could definitely feel a His Girl Friday type vibe and I completely loved it! Cole and Elissa are great main characters with hurts that only God can heal and as He does their love for each other gets reinstated so to speak. This story truly captivates you and it has a little bit of everything in it. Love, intrigue, mystery and even that character you want to slap upside the head.

I don't want to give any spoilers because you really need to read if for yourself. The only negative thing for me was there wasn't a resolve for me regarding the characters of Sophie and Sterling so I am hoping that her next book will be a part two of this one and will let us know what happened with them!

My Rating: 4 Stars/ Really Liked it!

Favorite Quote: "Scars may be present." He glanced at his knuckle. "But it's how we view them which makes the difference. They can be a reminder of defeat, or that our failures weren't bigger than our God."

(I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book which I read on Kindle Unlimited. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)
