From the Publisher:

Sweeping Romance and Mystery in the Edwardian EraBrook Eden has never known where she truly belongs. When her friend Justin uncovers the fact that she is possibly 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 will their loyalty 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 their 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 those who can save her still aren't sure who to trust.

The Lost Heiress by Roseanna M. White is historical fiction with a mystery/ suspense twist. It is well written, intriguing and I am giving it 3 stars.  

The only reason I give it 3 stars instead of 4 is that while this book is good, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I have found that while I love reading historical fiction, I am not a big fan of mystery novels.

If you like suspense and mystery combined with historical fiction ~ then The Lost Heiress  may be your cup of tea!

Thank you to Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
