Publisher's Summary

In early 1800s England, Jess Beauchene has spent most of her life in hiding and always on the move in an effort to leave her past far behind her. But when she learns the family she thought had died just might be alive and in danger, she knows her secrets can only stay buried for so long.

Derek Thornbury loves the past, which has led him to become an expert in history and artifacts. He knows Jess has never liked him, but when she requests his help deciphering the clues laid out in an old family diary, he can't resist the urge to solve the puzzle. As Jess and Derek race to find the hidden artifact before her family's enemies, they learn as much about each other as they do about the past. But can their search to uncover the truth and set history right lead to a future together?

Not her best plot

I was hoping Kristy Ann Hunter would follow up with Jess’ story. But I really think the plot just wasn’t that interesting. As usual the characters ARE interesting and dialogue is the best part of the story. However, I really expected Jess to be fleshed out a little more. Perhaps more scenes from her childhood would have done the trick. Still, it’s worth a listen.

Wonderful!

❤️I was drawn in from the very first words. I'm so glad Kristi Ann Hunter wrote this book! The adventure, the mystery, and the unconventional romance, I loved every moment! Derek trying to figure out Jess was very entertaining, Jess is rather complicated. I loved the conversations the two have. Seeing some beloved people from other books was great. One of my favorite things was the changes in Jess as the story goes along. The narrator is amazing! I've listened twice already. *Edit* The more times I listen to this story, the more I love it!

A Great Adventure

Read this a second time to follow everything. A surprise reveal of her life after the first two books of series.

Excellent

This is the third book in the Haven Manor series and it may have been my favorite. I really enjoyed all three of these books and the narration of the audible versions was very well done. But the gradual revelation of the characters of Jess and Derek was so unique, interesting, and enticingly done as we see their relationship develop and grow, even while they essentially remain very different people with wildly different backgrounds, strengths and weaknesses. And yet, as we often see, opposites do attract!
