Publisher's Summary

Poachers, mysterious strangers, and murderers converge at Fellsworth Academy, forcing one young woman to a test of fortitude and bravery to stop the shadow of the past from ruining her hopes for the future in this sweet Regency Romance.

In the fallout of her deceased father’s financial ruin, Annabelle’s prospects are looking bleak. Her fiancé has called off their betrothal, and now she remains at the mercy of her controlling and often cruel brother. Annabelle soon faces the fact that her only hope for a better life is to do the unthinkable and run away to Fellsworth, where her estranged uncle serves as the school’s superintendent. Upon arrival, Annabelle learns that she must shed her life of high society and work for her wages for the first time.

Owen Locke is unswerving in his commitments. As a widower and father, he is fiercely protective of his only daughter. As an industrious gamekeeper, he is intent on keeping poachers at bay even though his ambition has always been to purchase land he can call his own. When a chance encounter introduces him to Annabelle Thorley, his steady life is shaken. For the first time since his wife’s death, Owen begins to consider a second chance at love.

As Owen and Annabelle grow closer, ominous forces threaten the peace they thought they’d found.

The third and final book in the Treasures of Surrey series (The Curiosity Keeper is first and Dawn at Emberwilde is second.)

Romance, mystery, and a lot of intrigue

Sarah Ladd has done it again. Such a unique and intriguing story. I loved Owen from his entry into the story as well as his daughter Hannah. But Annabelle gradually grew on me as she slowly warmed and let her walls down. She became "human" in a way that seemed impossible in her limited and straight laced world of London. Her Uncle Edmund was a great surprise to me as he turned out to be a man of great depth and warmth.

There is a lot of intrigue and suspense threaded throughout this book as well as some pretty sordid characters.

The audiobook was also extremely well narrated. I highly recommend this one.

Just ok

Quaint story but lacks the maturity of a long standing writer. I think I'm done reading books from this author.

Enjoyed it

I couldn't put it down. It was a good story, a little different from the norm. Another view of how women had to suffer because they had no control over their lives in the past.

Not absolutely horrible.

I mean it did have a good storyline. The personalities of the characters I feel need a lot of work. This whole book was focused on getting through one scene to the next without seeming to want to let the reader truly know the characters. There were some additional characters so unnecessary to the storyline seemingly put in there just to add a connection to someone or something. I appreciate the effort the author has put into writing it but wish she had taken more time to enhance characters personalities and connections. I couldn't connect to these characters. Like Mr. Locke's daughter... she was 9 years old and could have definitely had more personality than you gave her. plus it didn't seem to me that Mr. Locke was so truly invested in her and her development was nowhere to be seen. was she just there to give him a reason to go to the school to see Annabelle? And if so I think the boys poaching would have been enough to connect the two main characters. Anyway, I would still like to thank the author for her efforts. It just wasn't as captivating as I think it could have been.

Fine

A typical story with lots of the same ploys seen in other regencies, so it was only an “it’s okay” for me. And perhaps a few too many enemies for my taste. The narration is fine, although there is a lot of force behind some of the words early on. It smooths out as the book goes along. I finished this book but played it at fast speeds to skip over the slow parts. The clean romance with a bit of mystery is much appreciated. However, it’s very simply written and very typical in its plot. It also contains a lot of over-explaining, as though we readers can’t possibly put two and two together. So, while it’s an okay story to while away an evening or two, it is not a re-listen for me. Owen was the best part of this book, with the uncle a close second.
