Predictable characters, and story, but interesting enough to keep my interest. The time period is well done, as is the mystery. ( )

This was the first Camden book I’ve read, and I intend to keep an eye out for more of hers! This story captured a piece of American history I haven’t read before, and I found it quite gripping. According to the post-reading research I’ve done, this book is quite accurate, and there were no instances where I felt jerked out of the setting by something “modern” slipping in there. I loved Patrick’s determination to do what was just and fair, and adored his mom, Birdie. Gwen was also an intriguing figure, but I think Patrick took the cake for me. Combining mystery, history, and a good dash of romance, this was a very satisfying read, and I can’t wait to see what the next book contains!

I was given a review copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it. ( )

Elizabeth Camden at her finest! Just when you think she cannot write better, she continues to weaves stories that are even more interesting, packed full of fascinating history and romance. I loved the well-researched history intricately and seamlessly intertwined in this novel; I think I learn more from Elizabeth Camden’s novels than history books as she makes the historical events and facts come alive. Gwen is intelligent and she is strong after going through tragedies at the hands of her family’s legacy. I loved her spunk. Patrick is a great opposing character and their interactions kept my attention throughout the novel. I love his fierce defense of those he loves. Their romance is clean but beautifully written! This book also has great suspense and mystery and definitely was difficult to put down. I greatly enjoyed this book and am so excited for more in the series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ( )

The first in a captivating new series set in the Gilded Age, Carved in Stone introduces the powerful Blackstone family, as secrets are revealed with the future of the largest merger in US history at stake.

Gwen Kellerman loves her life at college hosting gatherings of some of the most inquisitive minds, drawing comfort from the familiar. But her safe haven is at risk of going under, a chance sighting has her fighting to save the college alongside Patrick a principled young lawyer who dislikes everything her family represents. Does their love stand a chance?

A captivating and engaging novel, and an excellent introduction to the powerful Blackstone family. I loved how this book juxtaposes the lives of Gwen, Liam and Patrick, who come from vastly different backgrounds, as they try to find common ground and fight for what matters. Gwen is passionate about education, and longs for the close family connection that she was robbed of throughout her life. I admired her willingness to help, her compassion, and courage. Patrick is a hardworking and compassionate lawyer, he holds high standards of integrity for himself, and he is a wonderful friend.

Overall, a wonderful introductory to this brand new series by Elizabeth Camden. I loved the characters, rich history, and engaging plot. I'm so excited to see what happens next with this series, crossing my fingers for more on Liam and Natalia!

Carved in Stone by Elizabeth Camden is the beginning The Blackstone Legacy series. The author transports readers back to 1900 in New York City between the Five Points neighborhood and Manhattan. The author provided beautiful word imagery that allows readers to visualize the scenes from the book. I can tell the author did her research for this book with her descriptions of Five Points, the way people dressed, conveyances, attitudes, and behaviors, and so much more. Elizabeth Camden also includes interesting historical details that enrich the tale. The characters are realistic and developed. Patrick is an Irish immigrant who was fortunate to have a benefactor who helped him attend law school and become a lawyer while Gwen grew up in the world of academia and wealth. Patrick and Gwen begin on opposite sides of an issue, but they soon find themselves working towards the same goal. Carved in Stone was well-written with gentle pacing. It started off a little slow for me, but I soon became engaged and was swiftly turning the pages to see how the story would unfold. Carved in Stone reminds us that appearances can be deceiving. We should not judge a person based on their appearance, background, or their differing opinions. It reminds me of the phrase, “Never judge a book by its cover.” The other lesson is the art of compromise. Carved in Stone is our introduction into the complex and large Blackstone family. It will be interesting to see what happens next with the Blackstone’s. Carved in Stone is an intriguing historical novel with baleful book, stainless steel, an extravagant yacht, a compromised college, a flush family, and rough neighborhood. ( )
