What is this book about?
Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile–even if it’s just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won’t wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action . . . and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.
Lord Cayton has already broken two hearts, including that of his first wife, who died before he could convince himself to love her. Now he’s determined to live a better life. But that proves complicated when old friends arrive on the scene and try to threaten him into a life of crime. He does his best to remove the intriguing Lady Ella from danger, but the stubborn girl won’t budge. How else can he redeem himself, though, but by saving her–and his daughter–from those dangerous people who seem ready to destroy them all?
What a great end to this series. I thought my favorite character in this series was Brice from book two, but his sister Lady Ella jumped right up to the top in this book. I loved how complex and yet endearing the story was. There was so much meat between the jewel mystery, flawed but redeemable characters, and wonderfully sweet romance.
Lady Ella was a great secondary character in the first two books but I was amazed at how much I came to love her optimistic attitude and compassionate nature. I especially loved how she teased Cayton so sweetly. She was strong but vulnerable at the same time.
Lord Cayton had issues prevalent in his appearances in the previous books but there was something about him that shouted, ‘this man could be redeemed’. And in this book, he was. He struggled with his old self while trying to be a new man in Christ. It made him a little insecure which falling in love helped him deal with.
This was my favorite book in the series.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
Lady Ella. All of the interactions between her and others, particularly Cayton.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Would I recommend this book to others? Definitely. Strong and wonderful characters, complex spiritual thread and loads of suspense. This is the third book in this series and it can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading the series in order to follow the jewel mystery.
