Phoebe Von Bergen is excited to accompany her father when he travels from Germany to purchase sapphires in Montana. Little does she know that her father's plans--for the gemstones and his daughter--are not what they seem.

Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the young woman staying at the Broadwater Hotel more than a little intriguing. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie--a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.

Meeting Ian has changed everything. Phoebe is determined to stay in America, regardless of her father's plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger as the deception begins to unravel.

A Beauty Refined by Tracie Peterson is the second book in the Sapphire Brides series.  While this book is part of a series, it definitely can be read as a stand alone book. 

I've enjoyed Ms. Peterson's books in the past and found she has a fantastic writing style, great character portrayals and plots that are engaging, creative and a joy to read. In A Beauty Refined, all of the above was included and I was impressed with the nice touch of mystery and suspense that added a wonderful addition to this story.   

If you love historical, faith based romances ... this book (and series) are for you!  

4 Stars 

Thank you to Bethany House and Revell  as well as Netgalley for the wonderful gift of this book in an exchange for an honest review.
