With over twenty books published, her nine-part series, The Secrets of Scarlett Hall, which tells the stories of the Lambert Children, remain a favorite with her readers.
I love this new beginning of a series! Catharina and Gideon's story is delightful. I love the banter between these characters. The suspense is wonderful and kept me wanting to read well into the night. I am excited for Olivia's story in the next book in the series.
This book reminded me of a movie about searching for the Knights Templar treasure, but it was so different and I loved working through the clues with the characters! The banter between Catharina and Gideon was playful and witty, though there were times I thought both of them were a bit full of themselves, only to discover they were bantering. The villain gets his due and I especially loved the scene where he gets highly embarrassed! Would have loved to have been in the room when the villain’s helpers realize they would be dumped as well. All in all a good book though it did seem to drag in some places. Loved the “thief “ theme as well.
This is one of the most entertaining books I have read!
Catharina Sagewick wants to find a husband who loves adventure, but her father arranges a marriage for her. At a ball at her betrothed's home, she takes his mother's pearls to get out of the marriage. Now ruined, her father arranges for her to go with Lady Marigold, who owns a matchmaking service to find a husband for Catharina.
At a party with Lady Marigold, she meets Gideon, The Earl of Hainsley, who has retrieved a painting his father told him led to great riches.
This is such a fun, highly enjoyable read with laugh out loud antics as they search for the clues.
The chemistry between the two was interesting.
There were also many interesting secondary characters.
I gave it 5-stars!
