About the book:
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 very interesting story of what appears to be a loving father and his beautiful daughter Phoebe.
But, things aren’t always what they appear to be as Phoebe soon finds out as she arrives in America. The changes she experiences aren’t just from a culture that she’s accustomed to. She sees a different side to her father, Count Frederick Von Bergen as they reach their destination in Helena, Montana.
I liked Phoebe and Ian Harper. The relationship between them progressed at nice pace. The setting of the Broadwater Hotel was one that I really enjoyed as Phoebe explored the property and meets other characters.
I’ve always liked Tracie Peterson and find that she never disappoints in her unique story telling.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and have given my honest opinion.
