I recieved this book free from litfuse and the fiction guild in exchange for my honest review
I knew I wanted to read this because I enjoyed the curiosity keeper…so I was excited when I got the opportunity to be apart of the litfuseblog tour. this one started out a little slow but ended with kind of a bang!! I loved that she had 2 interested gentlemen and I’m glad things worked out the way they did!! be forwarned..one isn’t as he seems..although you get that felling almost immediate for the first couple chapters I actually liked him. I loved how everything progressed and there were a few things I had inklings about but hadn’t fully put everything together till other characters did. this really was a great book and I cant wait to read the next one
About the book:
Dawn at Emberwilde (Thomas Nelson, May 2016)
Isabel Creston never dared to dream that love could be hers. Now, at the edge of a forest filled with dark secrets, she faces a fateful choice between love and duty.
For as long as she can remember, beautiful and free-spirited Isabel has strained against the rules and rigidity of the Fellsworth School in the rolling English countryside. No longer a student, Isabel set her sights on a steady role as a teacher at the school, a safe yet stifling establishment that would enable her to care for her younger sister Lizzie, who was left in her care after her father’s death.
The unexpected arrival of a stranger with news of unknown relatives turns Isabel’s small, predictable world upside down, sweeping her and her young charge into a labyrinth of intrigue and hidden motives.
At her new family’s invitation, Isabel and Lizzie relocate to Emberwilde, a sprawling estate adjacent to a vast, mysterious wood rife with rumors and ominous folklore—along with whispers of something far more sinister. Perhaps even more startling, two handsome men begin pursuing Isabel, forcing her to learn the delicate dance between attraction, the intricate rules of courtship, and the hopes of her heart.
At Emberwilde Isabel will discover that the key to unlocking the mystery of her past may also open the door to her future and security. But first she must find it—in the depths of Emberwilde Forest.
