Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. All of the opinions expressed are my own.
This is the conclusion of an actual series. For the story to make the most sense all 3 books should be read in order.
About the book:
In the fine tradition established by her Southern grandmama, Aurora Daughtry has recently orchestrated the marriage of her eldest sister and facilitated her middle sister’s engagement. She also rejoices in her part in transforming the family’s dilapidated plantation manor into a luxurious and lucrative resort hotel. Just when it seems there is nothing left to absorb her considerable talent for managing people, in walks federal deputy marshal Zane Sager.
But Zane is not at Daughtry House for a vacation. He’s tracking a killer and collecting two key witnesses to a federal judge’s murder.
Aurora takes it upon herself to disabuse the cynical lawman of his conviction that the world—and God in particular—is out to get him. But just as she’s on the verge of cracking Zane’s defenses, the man he is after reminds him that no one he loves is safe. Ever.
Award-wining author Beth White closes out her Daughtry House series with this exciting and emotional tale of two strong-willed people who may have met their match.
A fantastic conclusion to a historical romance series!
I absolutely love both Aurora and Zane! They are incredibly well developed and easy to relate to. It was wonderful seeing how their personalities were presented slowly and their backgrounds came out throughout the book. This is especially true of Zane. It was fun to catch up with Selah, Levi, Joelle, and Schuyler too. I enjoyed seeing how their relationships had progressed since their respective books.
The plot of the story is great. It captured my interest and kept me focused and reading. I was fascinated to read the information given in the note at the end of the book as to how much of this book was based on historical fact.
I was so caught up in the lives of these people that when I turned the page and saw the words, “A Note to the Reader” my first thought was that it couldn’t be over yet. I would love to see the author write another series continuing the lives of all of these wonderful characters.
I am definitely giving this incredible book a rating of 5 stars. I highly recommend it.
