The Lost Heiress by Rosanna White Book #Review


 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.

MY REVIEW-Roseanna White is an author I thoroughly enjoy, enough that I have every book she has written on my keeper shelf:) My favorites so far have been her Culper Ring Series but once I got about 15 pages in this one, I knew it would be a close tie. It is a different series but very much the same style, minus the intrigue and undercover suspense of the other one, though this one does have some mystery in it.

Brook is a young woman who has been surrounded by mystery her whole life. Never sure of who her parents really were, she is sure of only two things. Her best friend Justin, and her "grandfather". When Justin uncovers who she really is, a lost heiress who was taken away from her father at a young age by her mother, she goes to find out if it really is home. And while Justin wants her to fit in, he doesn't want her taken away from him either, since he has quickly fallen in love with this fiery independent young woman.

The book is well written, plenty of pages to read and lots of good parts. I laughed, cried and even wanted to hit someone at one point:) Okay, maybe a couple times. There is a mystery in the plot about the "Fire Eyes" but I seriously just enjoyed reading this one for itself. And you know it is good when that happens. I am hoping the next book might deal with a friend Brook makes, Duke Worthing. Another excellent page turner from Roseanna White!
