BookAngels12 was given a copy in return for a honest review.
Read and Reviewed by JoAnn 

They say "never judge a book by it's cover".  Well, it is the cover that drew me to it. I recognized a picture of one of our Presidents, however, I did not recognize which one. My fault as I did not pay a lot of attention in school to either Sister Emily Clare or the textbooks. The President was 
Grover Cleveland.

President Cleveland marries his young bride, who is 21 and he 49. They get married at the White House.  To avoid nosy reporters they are swiftly taken to the private train by a horse carriage. The reporters get wind of this and decide to follow.  Luckily, the President and first lady manage to get away.  Away to a beautiful mountain resort in Deer Park, Maryland for their honeymoon

The reporters end up there, but the story turns out not to be the President but a murder of a young reporter among other things. There are people in the background plotting sinister things for their own benefit.   

The quiet honeymoon turns into an adventure they could not have imagined. Thanks to the President, his wife and those sent to guard him things are solved and then they can go on with their lives.

I highly recommend this novella as it is an easy, interesting read. I give it 5 stars.

Now, if you excuse me I am off to my next adventure with Gary Ruse this time into the cold war.
