DESCRIPTION

India Steele is desperate. Her father is dead, her fiancé took her inheritance, and no one will employ her, despite years working for her watchmaker father. Indeed, the other London watchmakers seem frightened of her. Alone, poor, and at the end of her tether, India takes employment with the only person who'll accept her - an enigmatic and mysterious man from America. A man who possesses a strange watch that rejuvenates him when he's ill.

Matthew Glass must find a particular watchmaker, but he won't tell India why any old one won't do. Nor will he tell her what he does back home, and how he can afford to stay in a house in one of London's best streets. So when she reads about an American outlaw known as the Dark Rider arriving in England, she suspects Mr. Glass is the fugitive. When danger comes to their door, she's certain of it. But if she notifies the authorities, she'll find herself unemployed and homeless again - and she will have betrayed the man who saved her life.

With a cast of quirky characters, an intriguing mystery, and a dash of romance, THE WATCHMAKER'S DAUGHTER is the start of a thrilling new historical fantasy series from the author of the bestselling Ministry of Curiosities, Freak House, and Emily Chambers Spirit Medium books.

    An absolutely amazing read! Brilliantly written and so captivating that I couldn't put it down no matter where I was! The author's writing style really takes you back in time to the period which it is set and it feels as if you are walking alongside the characters. Without hesitation I've already purchased Book 2 in the series (which I'm sure will not disappoint!) and look forward to reading the remaining books too. Fantastic job well done, thank you to the author for transporting me to a magical time and allowing me to escape just a little from reality.

    Three books into CJ Archers works and I am absolutely loving them. I am very well read. And apart from Jean Auels Clan series, I can't remember a series that I've been so looking forward to reading. I love these books.

    Terrible! Promised much, but entirely failed to deliver. Very disappointing.
