To Capture His Heart Review

About the Book

 Seaside, England, 1886

Eva Caldwell is an accomplished and well-known photographer who often works with the local constabulary to assist in documenting crime scenes, which means she also often works alongside the handsome and charming detective, Nathan Winston. She appreciates his intellect and how he treats her like an equal, but Eva’s heart is still healing from a past relationship, so, for now, she decides to keep her feelings for Nathan a secret.

One evening, Nathan arrives on her doorstep asking for a personal favor. Would Eva be available to photograph his mother’s legendary, week-long dinner party and matchmaking event? The catch is that Eva would also have to pretend they are courting in order for Nathan to avoid the many single women seeking his attention.

Though wary of the charade, Eva agrees. Spending a week with the two things she loves most—her detective and her camera—sounds simple enough. And if she wants to imagine that Nathan’s pretend courtship of her is real, well, what’s the harm in that?

But when a criminal from Nathan’s past threatens revenge on the detective, Nathan must be extra vigilant to keep his mother and the rest of the partygoers safe. He confides in Eva, and as the two work together to solve the mystery and apprehend the criminal, they find that they might capture more than they expected—each other’s heart. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

This is such a fun book! I haven't read many books by this author so I was excited to pick this one up. I did not read the first book and I wish I had! I really enjoyed Eva's character as she lives a life that society looks upon with uncertainty. As a photographer, she experiences many things that a "lady" just shouldn't experience. I love it! Nathan Winston took me a while to warm up to but I so enjoyed him also. There is a bit of a mystery that threads throughout the pages and Nathan and Eva work together to figure out what is going on. Of course there is a week long dinner party, a meddling mother, romance, and someone up to no good. What could go wrong?! The witty banter made this book enjoyable and while there is a mystery element this was a pretty light and fun read. 

I highly recommend! 

Five stars!
