Born to an immigrant Irish family, Phineas has created The Bostonian newspaper and crafted it into one of the most widely read papers on the East Coast. But his great success comes at a price. At the turn of the century, Phineas allows his journalists to practice yellow journalism. The stories he publishes are only partly true and extremely slanted with one goal in mind: to sell newspapers. When a young politician’s son is arrested for a murder he claims was self-defense, The Bostonian has a field day. Once the son is convicted and hanged for murder, a series of tragic events are triggered. Suddenly, Lily is whisked away to Europe with her grandmother as chaperone to escape the danger that surrounds her, though she has no idea of it. Once in Europe, she meets a delightful group of travelers including two English brothers, a Southern belle and her gentlemanly sibling, a young Frenchwoman and her aunt, and a handsome Italian charmer. But someone is not what they seem. As the assassin moves closer to Lily, intent on doing her mortal harm, there is someone else set on protecting her . . . no matter the cost.

    I have to say I was totally surprised with how much I enjoyed this book! This is the second book I have read by this author. I previously read The Tea Plantation, which is one of my favorite books. The Boston Girl is a wonderfully written historical romance book.

Pietro is a strong character, guardian angel and the perfect hero that makes this love story very dear to heart. Loved the plot and the character Jess, she is a lively addition to this book. I look forward to reading all books previously written by this author and any future books by her.

    A Romance Not interested in love stories because they always have the same plot and ending...boring. Would not recommend it to anyone.

    I've read two other books by Nicola and I have to say that this is by far my favorite! From the beginning the story gets you going for speculation and intrigue as to what will happen. The Bostonian paper ran by Lily's father Phineas, who reports stories, not always accurate and with true facts, but to make his paper a selling sensation that causes a family tormoil and pain, thus causing problems for his family, which put's his daughter Lily in possible danger.

Sending Lily on a trip to London with her grandmother he thinks to keep her safe with some added help from a Pinkerton detective, the handsome Pietro. Pietro has a job to do, keep a close watch on Lily, protect her, but he can't help that he is drawn to her. Events of failed attempts to end her life only draw her to the dark and handsome stranger, but what will happen when she finds out he was paid to protect her??? Will love continue?? I won't give you more spoilers only to have you find out in the end, who wants revenge, and will Lily find love with Pietro.

    Very good read This is another good book written by Nicola Italia. The writing flows evenly and kept me interested and wanting to continue. The plot is fresh and there is an underlying attraction building as this detective novel unfolds. The characters are well described and developed, and the budding romance gets steamy. I find I want to read more from this author as her attention to historical details us peppered throughout this story as well as her other books. I appreciate that and find it sig Very good read This is another good book written by Nicola Italia. The writing flows evenly and kept me interested and wanting to continue.

    Intriguing. Though I felt the book started just a bit slow, it was not long before I could not put the book down. Ms. Italia did a fine job with this romantic, historical, "who-dunnit" book. As I read, I felt pulled along, moving from page to page, wanting to know what clues I might find along the way. Each time I thought I figured it out, something else would happen. Nice work, Ms. Italia. I loved the story and I loved the descriptions. You drew me into the story, allowing me to see, taste and Intriguing.

I look forward to reading more stories by Nicola Italia.

    This is an excellent novel. As well as tracing several relationships:- Pietro and Lily; Egert and Hortense; Leslie and Jessbelle; and Celine and Ford it was also a type of "who dunnit" in the Agatha Christie mould with all the characters in a house on the Isle of Wight. I particularly liked the older couples romance, Egert and Hortense. This is an excellent novel.

    I won this book in a Good Reads Give away. This is the first time I read Nicola Italia. It was a great read. It was not just a historical romance (as the cover states), had a bit of mystery to it as well. Kept me intrigued. I think I found a new favorite author!
