About the Author:
Amelia is the heiress of the title and is about to marry a rather uptight man. She has, though, promised to care for her friend’s child after that friend dies. Her fiance will have nothing to do with a child not his own so he leaves Amelia. Determined to do what’s best for the baby – Lucy – Amelia makes a daring proposal to Lucy’s father – marry me! Graham can then go back to sea – he is a captain on a ship – and Lucy will be well cared for by Amelia and her inheritance.
But Lucy is kidnapped! Amelia and Graham come together to find her and in the process learn much about love, faith and themselves.
Beautiful cover notwithstanding, this was not a page turner for me. The characters lacked any real development and the story really didn’t ring true for the time. Much of it also seemed a touch repetitive – the horse has no name. I get it! Now I have an earwig I didn’t need or want.
I think with tighter editing and more effort into building the characters’ stories there is a future here but if the second book doesn’t improve I won’t stick around for the third.
