I was given a free Kindle edition copy of "A Lady's Honor" by Laurie Alice Eakes through the Booklook bloggers program in exchange for my honest review.
Set in 1811 Cornwall, England, Elizabeth Trelawny flees London and the arranged marriage with Marquess Rumsford, a man whose previous wives died suspiciously. She is aided in her flight to her grandparents' home Bastion Point, by a mysterious stranger, Rowan Curnow. She must keep it a secret that she was with a stranger all night, even innocently, for fear of ruining her honor and reputation. Once she reaches the safety of Bastion Point, she discovers that her rescuer is the new neighbor's secretary and that she isn't as safe as she thought she would be.
Rowan and Elizabeth must work together to discover who is threatening their friends and family before it is too late. Can Elizabeth realize that not everyone expects something from her and only loves her for what she does?
I was really drawn into the story and characters. I wasn't able to figure out the mystery of the threats before the book revealed it, so I liked that. It's always a little disappointing to figure out what is going on and have a third of the book left to read before it is revealed in the story. Sometimes I just wanted to shake the characters and make them realize what they were feeling! I felt that there was a nice balance between the romance part of the book and the mystery part.
If you like historical, inspirational romances or historical, inspirational mysteries, I think you'd like this book.
