Review quote

'Once again, Ladd delights readers with a skillfully plotted, suspenseful page-turner. . . Like all superior novelists, Ladd doesn't default to pat endings, offering even her villains a potential happily-ever-after by putting her faith (not to mention the characters' and the readers') in God's abiding mercy.' * RT Book Reviews, 4 stars * 'With betrayals, murders, and criminal activity disrupting the peace at Fellsworth, Ladd fills the pages with as much intrigue as romance. Inspirational references are limited to a few mentions of prayers. A well-crafted story for fans of Regency novels.' * Publishers Weekly * "This novel reads well and fast; its vivid imagery and likeable characters fill the pages. The well-crafted metaphors and tight sequences make for an absorbing read. Though set around the Regency period, the style is fresh and the voice genuine. The spiritual aspect of the novel does not overpower; it is woven into the plot and provides a graceful way to unite the beliefs and morals of Annabelle and Owen Locke. I want to read more in the series.' * Historical Novel Reviews * 'Ladd's third Regency outing (after Dawn at Emberwilde and The Curiosity Keeper) can easily stand on its own, but readers who enjoy this book will want to devour the trilogy.' * Library Journal *show more
