The Lost Heiress Review


About the Book

Brook Eden has never known where she truly belongs. Though raised in the palace of Monaco, she’s British by birth and was brought to the Grimaldis under suspicious circumstances as a babe. When Brook’s friend Justin uncovers the fact that Brook is likely a missing heiress from Yorkshire, Brook leaves the sun of the Mediterranean to travel to the moors of the North Sea to the estate of her supposed family.
The mystery of her mother’s death haunts her, and though her father is quick to accept her, the rest of the family and the servants of Whitby Park are not. Only when Brook’s life is threatened do they draw close—but their loyalty may come too late to save Brook from the same threat that led to tragedy for her mother.
As heir to a dukedom, Justin is no stranger to balancing responsibilities. When the matters of his estate force him far from Brook, the distance between them reveals that what began as friendship has grown into something much more. But how can their very different loyalties and responsibilities ever come together?
And then, for a second time, the heiress of Whitby Park is stolen away because of the very rare treasure in her possession—and this time only the servants of Whitby can save her. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I was super excited to read this book. I love the cover and the overall story line idea. I think the book starts off good, it kept me interested for the first few chapters. Then things got slow for me and it was a challenge for me to finish. There is a mystery and the characters are pretty well developed, it just seemed to drag out for me. I know lots of other people really enjoyed this book but I couldn't get into it. I like how it ends and I still think it was a creative plot line. The author started this book when she was a little girl and it's so exciting that she was able to finish and publish it years later.

For those that love this time period you will enjoy it, it just wasn't for me.

"I received this book from Bethany House for free in exchange for an honest review."
