Chicago’s World Fair Resurrected

Take a trip to a fascinating moment in American history – the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Carol Cox’s impeccable research makes this snapshot of history truly breathe again in Fair Game. Besides walking the fair’s midway, readers will attend a meeting of Moody’s World’s Fair evangelical campaign, have a run in with gangsters, and glimpse a serial killer’s playground. To top it off, there is a wonderfully woven romance between a secretary and an urban missionary. Who could ask for more?

But if you need another dose, there is Ticket to Tomorrow already in print and also written against the backdrop of the fair. Ride the first Ferris Wheel, meet Buffalo Bill Cody, and tag along as an international assassination plot is foiled. Again, the romance is superb between a young widow and a cowboy.

Fair Game is an April release.

In Fair Game, Carol Cox has created a marvelous story threaded with romance, mystery, humor, and spiritual struggles. Prepare to be transported to the exciting panorama of the World’s Columbian Exposition where you will be introduced to characters you’ll not soon forget. You won’t want to miss this one!
~Judith Miller, author of the Freedom’s Path Series

Fair Game is much more than a trip back in time to the greatest fair on earth in 1893. Carol Cox has concocted a delicious mystery and spiced it up with a signature blend of intrigue, danger, and inspiration—and a heaping tablespoon of romance. Kick off your shoes, curl up in your favorite spot, and savor it!”
~Kathy Herman, author of the Baxter Series, Seaport Suspense Novels, and the Phantom Hollow Series

Armchair Interviews says: Ticket to Tomorrow is a perfect blend of mystery, romance and history.

Ticket to Tomorrow is a poignant love story, full of mysterious twists and colorful characters.

In my opinion Ticket To Tomorrow is the perfect example of a historical romantic mystery. By Michelle at edgyinspirationalauthor.blogspot.com

I CANNOT WAIT to read this. It just came in the mail.
I loved Ticket to Tomorrow. Carol just made this fascinating and unusual piece of American history come alive.
I think of the way she wove real historical characters into her book and how she caught the awe of people looking at electric lights and a Ferris Wheel. And all of that was background to this fast paced mystery and romance. To have a background so much richness was a gift.
Excellent story and now the sequel is in my HANDS!!!!!!!!

These both sound great. I only wish our local stores carried them! :)

Ok, you girls are having way too much fun down there! I'm slaving away on my machine and you're taking pictures!! I love the new pic on the blogsite. Very cute!

I also have a suggestion for you coffee-chocolate lovers. Try the Caribou Coffee granola bars! I like the "mint condition" flavor. They're chewy granola bars with the bottom layered in chocolate, yet tasting--and smelling!!--like coffee. The Mint Condition flavor has yummy green mint icing drizzled across the top. Mmmm, MMM, Mmmm, MMM, mmmm!

I've only found them at Wal-Mart so far, but I haven't looked hard anywhere else.


P.S.--these books look awesome! I will have to check them out.

I don't know how I missed that one, but I'm going to hunt it down and find the other one, too!
