Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. The Conductors by Nicole Glover is a new historical fiction mystery. Guys this is soooo in my wheelhouse! I absolutely adore speculative fiction that uses fantasy and mystery to address or retell important historical events.The cover is perfect and the premise is intriguing. Underground railroad, murder mysteries, magic.....umm where do I sign up?!?!?
Synopsis of The Conductors from Goodreads:
As a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Hetty Rhodes helped usher dozens of people north with her wits and magic. Now that the Civil War is over, Hetty and her husband Benjy have settled in Philadelphia, solving murders and mysteries that the white authorities won’t touch. When they find one of their friends slain in an alley, Hetty and Benjy bury the body and set off to find answers. But the secrets and intricate lies of the elites of Black Philadelphia only serve to dredge up more questions. To solve this mystery, they will have to face ugly truths all around them, including the ones about each other.
