When a shocking scandal involving her father spreads through London society, Elaine Cardinham and her parents are forced to retreat to their country home in Cornwall for refuge. But Havencross is no sanctuary for Elaine. She is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of her brother—and the heartbreak she left in her wake all those years ago. It has been five long years since Gareth Kemp last saw Elaine—when she rejected his marriage proposal. Her reappearance convinces him of one thing: he has never stopped loving her. To put his feelings for her aside, he focuses his attention on the dangerous smuggling plaguing the Cornish coast. As Elaine attempts to run from her past, she ventures ever closer to a dangerous truth—and Gareth may be the only one who can save her from a deadly finish.
Julie Daines is one of my favorite authors. Her books are always wonderful. I absolutely loved Havencross. I could tell Julie researched thoroughly for this book and it paid off. The setting itself was a character. With the beautiful descriptions and details, I could picture Cornwall. The story is beautifully told and I loved the suspense that was throughout the book as well. Elaine was a strong, smart and caring character. All of the characters were written well. Gareth was especially wonderful. I loved the seeds of hints that were planted along the way. I was not surprised by the "bad guy", but wow, so many exciting scenes and heart-pounding suspense kept me reading and reading and reading until I was done.
5 out of 5 stars. Everything this author writes is perfect!
