What it’s about:
From the publisher:
“Brook Eden has never known where she truly belongs. When her friend Justin uncovers the fact that she is possibly a missing heiress from Yorkshire, Brook leaves the sun of the Mediterranean to travel to the moors of the North Sea and the estate of her supposed family.
The mystery of her mother’s death haunts her, and though her father is quick to accept her, the rest of the family and the servants of Whitby Park are not. Only when Brook’s life is threatened do they draw close–but will their loyalty come too late to save Brook from the same threat that led to tragedy for her mother?
As heir to a dukedom, Justin is no stranger to balancing responsibilities. When the matters of his estate force him far from Brook, the distance between them reveals that their friendship has grown into something much more. But how can their very different loyalties and responsibilities ever come together?
And then for a second time, the heiress of Whitby Park is stolen away because of the very rare treasure in her possession–and those who can save her still aren’t sure whom to trust.”
I loved when I was introduced to Brook. If we were both real people, I am real, she isn’t, unfortunately, I am pretty sure we would get along. I love finding new “book friends” so this book was fun for me. I really love when characters who have a true, meaningful friendship and relationship are attracted to each other, rather than strangers meeting and just being physically attracted to each other. Besides the romance and strong characters, there is mystery to keep you guessing. I love how my emotions got so involved with these characters and their journey and if you know me, you know that is my favorite part of reading!
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
