Fiction Review: The Lost Heiress by Roseanna M. White

"The Lost Heiress" is a historical romance and mystery about Brook Eden and her newly discovered family. When Brook discovers her mother's hidden gems, her life is suddenly in danger. As a new heiress, the dangerous Lord Pratt appears to be after her hand in marriage for money reasons, but things are not what they seem.

Roseanna White creates a thrilling story with wonderful, engaging characters who rely strongly on their faith as they face troubles. The book is long, but builds up to its conclusion well. The many characters and their connections are confusing. Also, while a good mystery should reveal small clues throughout, it should not be to the confusion of the reader, and White sometimes waits too long to reveal important details. She also skips over months at a time, which can be somewhat bothersome to certain readers. However, the story and its conclusion are most definitely worth a full read. The climax will have readers on the edge of their seats, and the overall plot will keep the pages turning through the night.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
