Book Review

Publisher's Note:

1906 Beth Tremayne has always been drawn to adventure. During her childhood, she fed that desire by exploring every inch of the Isles of Scilly. Now, after stumbling across an old collection of letters and a map buried on her family's property, she's found more adventure than she ever anticipated in the hunt for pirate treasure. But in order to discover where the clues lead, she must search alongside Lord Sheridan, a man she finds insufferable. Sheridan has spent years pursuing whatever archaeological interests pique his imagination. And when he discovers that Beth's search connects with one of his far-removed pirate ancestors, he can't help getting involved. Plus, he finds her irresistible, even though she insists he stole a prized possession of hers. As they work together following different clues and drawing closer to danger, they start to piece together a story of tragic love and piratical adventure. But which treasure will bring the greatest surprise--the one they find in…

To Treasure an Heiress

by Roseanna M. White

Overall Book Review:

To Treasure an Heiress is Roseanna M. White’s second book in The Secrets of the Isles series.  White transports readers to the early 1900s and the Isles of Sicily. This story picks up right where the previous one ended so be sure to read it first. You won’t want to miss out on any of the action.  The characters are endearing and bring the reader into their world.

One of the many enjoyable characters is Lord Sheridan.  As readers are treated to his thoughts and witness his actions, they will have a hard time not laughing out loud.  His antics really makes the story.  Other characters that are interesting also draw notice as well. 

The author does a nice job of making interesting characters out of so many.  Be it a servant or a Lord, there is a story to be told.  Many emotions will be felt and readers will find much to ponder.  Who will your favorite characters be? Allow yourself to be swept away in their story and learn alongside the characters what it means to trust in the Lord.
