The Thief of Lanwyn Manor

Julia fled to Lanwyn Manor to escape from heartbreak and embarrassment.  She never expected to be caught in the middle of such drama and intrigue.

Julia was to behave a certain way or there would be consequences.  Her future could be at risk if she didn't conform to societies' expectations.

I enjoyed the twists and turns of this book.  Who was the mysterious intruder?  Was Isaac or Matthew really what they seem?    Whom could Julia trust?

I never like reading or watching shows that show early medical practices such as bleeding or leeches!  Yikes!  I get squeamish when I read what was common practices in those days.  Thank goodness for the advancements that have been made in medical science.I

Interesting and Intriguing!!!!

I received this free from Celebrate Lit to review.

About the Book

Author: Sarah E. Ladd
Genre:  Regency Romance
Release Date: January 7, 2020
Thief of Lanwyn ManorIn this sweet Regency romance, Julia knows Matthew Blake, copper mine owner and very eligible bachelor, is the gentleman she should set her eyes upon. But why can’t she steal her gaze away from his younger brother, Isaac?
Cornwall, England 1818—Julia Twethewey needs a diversion to mend her broken heart, so when her cousin invites her to Lanwyn Manor, Julia eagerly accepts. Lanwyn Manor is at the heart of Cornwall’s mining industry, and as a guest Julia is swept into its intricate world. It’s not long, though, before she realizes something dark lurks in the home’s ancient halls.
As a respected mine owner’s younger son, Isaac Blake is determined to keep his late father’s legacy alive through the family business, despite his brother’s careless attitude. In order to save their livelihood—and the livelihood of those around them—the brothers approach the master of Lanwyn Manor with plans to bolster the floundering local industry. Isaac can’t deny his attraction to the man’s charming niece, but his brother has made his intentions to court the lovely guest clear. And Isaac knows his place.
When tragedy strikes, mysteries arise, and items go missing, Julia and Isaac find they are pulled together in a swirl of strange circumstances, but despite their own best efforts to bow to social expectations, their hearts aren’t so keen to surrender.
