A Book Review-The Lost Heiress

8 Dec

imagesThe Lost Heiress is book one in the Ladies of the Manor series, and was written by Roseanna M. White.  It is set in the early 1900s, and follows the story of Brook Eden-a girl without a past, anxious to discover her true family, and to no longer feel like a pretender.  With the help of her best friend Justin and a mysterious seal, they discover she just might be a missing English heiress.  Leaving the only home she has ever known in Monaco, she travels to cold and blustery England to discover if this is truly where her history lies.  Will her new “father” accept her, and what really happened to Brook as a baby?

Justin says he will be there to support her, but soon family duties carry him across the world, leaving Brook to figure out the mysteries of her past alone.  As more details emerge, Brook finds herself in grave danger-will she survive, and will her relationship with Justin continue to grow, or will life tear them apart forever?

OK, so I have to say I really enjoyed this book.  As in, even though it was over 400 pages, I did read it in one day.  And, I am still thinking about the characters a few days later-definitely the sign of a great book!

If you are a fan of Downton Abbey or Pride and Prejudice, then this is a book for you.  The characters are interesting, there are plenty of twists and turns, action, and some romance along the way.  This book will definitely be going on my shelf, and I am looking forward to the next book!

As always, I thank Bethany House for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!
