I picked up The Lost Heiress a few months ago (thank you, local library!) and purchased a copy of my own before I even finished reading it.
That is something I rarely do, especially when it’s the first book I’ve read by that author. Yet, that’s exactly what I did for this novel by Roseanna M. White.
Let me just say, READ THIS BOOK.
Okay, now that we have that out of the way, on to reviewing!
The Lost Heiress is the story of Brook Eden, a young British woman raised in Monaco as a princess. How many girls grow up wishing they were a princess? I know I cherished a dream or two of just that.
But Brook doesn’t truly know who she is, and that’s what she longs for.
When her friend Justin discovers that Brook is actually a long-lost heiress from Yorkshire, England, he and Brook journey from Monaco to reunite her with her birth family. You’d think Brook’s story would be filled with sunshine and rainbows now, but mystery and danger still follow.
What really happened the night an infant Brook was lost, the same night her mother died in a terrible accident? Who is still threatening Brook?
Throw in a lost treasure, a burgeoning romance with Justin, and getting to know a family and community who don’t quite know what to make of her, and Brook’s story takes off, leaving you holding onto your hat and anxious to know what happens next!
I absolutely loved this novel, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting Book 2 of Roseanna’s Ladies of the Manor series, The Reluctant Duchess. The mystery continues in this much-anticipated sequel to The Lost Heiress.
The Reluctant Duchess releases April 5, 2016. Go ahead and read The Lost Heiress so you’ll be ready for Book 2 in April!
My rating: 5.0/5 stars
Recommended for: readers of inspirational romantic fiction set in the Edwardian era; fans of Kristi Ann Hunter’s Hawthorne House series or Julie Klassen’s novels; anyone who loves Downton Abbey.
