Publisher's Summary

In 1782, a ghost ship ran aground in a secluded cove in Cornwall. To this day, no one knows what became of the Aurora’s crew or the shadowy woman rumored to be onboard.

In 2021, when Kyle inherits his aunt’s historic house in Cornwall, all Nicole anticipates is a few idyllic days in a beautiful setting—until she discovers that not only is the house connected to the centuries-old legend of the Aurora and the woman at the center of the mystery, but it also hides its own dark past.

As Kyle and Nicole delve deeper into the unexplained disappearance of the crew, they unearth secrets both old and new, along with truths that could alter the shape of their own family in ways they never expected.

Love this series

I enjoy time lapse novels where you are getting 2 stories in 1. This series is unique in its style and presentation. I am invested in Nicole and Kyle’s characters and eager to read the next installment.

Not a super fan of the narrator, but she works for these stories.

Pirates the sea and a love story

What’s not to love about the third book in the Nicole Rayburn series? I am always fascinated where the author takes her stories. Irina Shapiro is definitely one of my favorite authors.

Jack

I liked everything but the end, which to me made Gabriel a selfish uncaring person. He should have gone back for Jack and even his crew, but he was too much of a coward and thought only of himself. Instead of having a good feeling about the book it left me feeling sad and unfinished. I did enjoy the first two books though.

Best installment to date

Third Book in the Nicole Rayburn series, authored by Irina Shapiro. Each one is better than the last. Great character development. The hero/heroine are so endearing. Can’t help but love them. The mystery was what happened to an entire crew of a ship who vanished without a trace. One of those books that you have to finish to discover what happened, then sad you are done with it because, well your done with the book. I certainly hope there are future books in this series.

Irina Shapiro continues to weave wonderful stories that eloquently draw you in and keep you rapt until the end. This tale was exciting and informative. It’s great to learn about how people of another era lived their lives. A wonderful book, highly recommended. Ms Shapiro never fails to satisfy your cravings for adventure, romance, and intrigue.
