Mansion of Stolen Hearts – (Harvey Girls)
Christal Neyses, patissier for the Fred Harvey restaurant at the La Castañeda Hotel in Las Vegas, New Mexico, disappeared. Her uncle claims she left to be married. Believing Christal would never dishonor her commitment to work as a Harvey Girl for a year before marrying, her roommates, Olivia Wofford, and Alice Clayborne search for her.
Alice’s double life threatens to derail their search. Her secret puts their lives in jeopardy. They discover Christal was stolen and sold to a foreign broker in California. Stonewalled at every turn, with time running out before Christal is shipped to the Orient, they hatch a daring rescue. If they fail, they will never leave the mansion of stolen hearts alive.
