I really enjoyed this one... I liked the return memories from Eleanor and how Jack didn't immediately lust after her. She was smitten but he didn't see that. I can see this series building up to something great. Hope the series continues not to disappoint!

This is the third book in this series of the Beckets of Romney Marsh.

The first one I read was The Dangerous Debutante and it was so

good that I wanted to read the whole series. As the library does not have all the books in this series I am reading them out sequence as I can get them, which is okay as they all stand alone quite well. As with most series it is great to see the same people in each book and you get to know them a little better and see more of their story.

The Beckets do not engage in
I hadn't read any of the Romney Marsh Novels prior to this, but might read some of the earlier ones to see if they shed light on the background which is alluded to throughout this novel. The character development leaves a bit to be desired, but some of that could be attributed to my not knowing the series. The romance happens very quickly for me, with very little of the expected outcry from the heroine's family.
Eleanor Becket is a quiet woman who knows secrets and one of the biggest secrets is her own. Her past has things that will influence the future and Jack Eastwood finds himself embroiled in both her and her family's future while trying to unravel some questions of his own.

Much of the plot is pretty predictable and if you blink you might miss some of the thriller and mystery aspects but it's a fun read.
I enjoyed the turn in the Beckett arc as the whole arc is shifting to more dangerous times. More mysteris are sounding the Beckett family as they cope with the past and prepare for the fight that is coming.
Lovely! Kasey Michaels never disappoints. Liked the heroine & hero lots.
