Sometimes the hardest step to take is the first step forward

When Englishwoman Catherine Haynes loses both her father and her home in 1856, she decides to cross the Atlantic to find her American mother’s family in Louisiana. She enlists the help of Tom Worthington, a dashing Key West man who makes his living salvaging wrecked ships.

When Catherine arrives at the plantation, she finds that her family has left it in the care of a manager–who’s let it fall into disrepair. Torn between returning to Key West with Tom and beginning the hard work of restoring the plantation, Catherine soon finds herself snared in a plot to steal her inheritance. When an incredible secret comes to light, both she and Tom will face a choice: grip their dreams ever tighter or step forward in faith–even if it costs them everything.

My thoughts and giveaway: 

I have adored this series so I couldn’t wait for this newest installment. And this one has such a different feeling and plot to it.

For me the beginning was a bit slow, yet I understand why that first half of the book had to be there, it had to lay the ground work for the rest of the book. I could have easily put it down and walked away, I didn’t feel overly connected to the story…but then we get to the half way point and my reader brain was like, “Yes, this is what I have been waiting for.”

Catherine is a strong character who wants to find the truth. Tom is a strong hero who wants to seek justice. Together they make a great team.

The mystery surrounding Catherine’s family I found so interesting. I couldn’t wait for the truth to be revealed. That definitely drove the second half of this book.

If you enjoy historical romance with a mysterious setting you will like this one.
