The Lost Heiress by Roseanna M. White

Hey, Just finished reading The Lost Heiress by Roseanna M White and I thought it was awesome!  It is the story of Brook Sabatini who lives in Monte Carlo, Monaco with her best friend Justin. For the past 8 years Brook did not know who she was, just who she wasn't. She was raised by Opera Singer Collete Sabatini and Prince Albert but it was not until Collette was on her death bed that she told Brook that she was not her child, that she was found in a carriage accident when she was a baby that killed her real mother. The only clue of her past was a letter that she found mixed in with love letters from Collette's past boyfriends.  Justin traveled to England and using the seal from the letter found out that her father has been looking for her for years.  Justin found out that Brook, whose real name is Elizabeth Brook Eden is the lost Baroness from Berkeley and the daughter of an Earl . Justin and Brook travel to Whitby Park, in North Yorkshire England where her father, Aunt and some cousins are waiting to meet her. Upon arriving her father instantly recognizes her because she is the exact picture of her mother and so does her Aunt, but the servants are not so accepting.  Life in Whitby Park seems to be going well except that the servants hate her and Justin cannot stay with her (because both his father and grandfather died and he has become the new Duke) until one day Brook is attacked!  A man comes behind her while she is in the stables with her horse and hits her in the shoulder. They fight and well I don't want to give you all the details and ruin the story but Brook survives injured,but alive.  The strangest thing was that the man kept screaming to give him the "Fire Eyes" and Brook did not even know what the "Fire Eyes" were.  Justin returns to Whitby park and is shocked to see Brook injured. He tries to help her solve the mystery but as the days pass by Justin is finally realizes that he loves Brook but does not know how to tell her and when he finally does tell her, Brook thinks that Justin only likes her now because she has money and a title.  They both get into a huge fight then Justin leaves again and in his absence Brook's new friend stops by and accuses her of stealing the Fire Eyes. Before her friend leaves she tells Brook to be careful or she might "end up like her mother." Brook finally finds out what the "Fire Eyes" are and she works to see who is after them.  But she can only do so much because as she was driving home one day , Someone opens the door to her car  and kidnaps her.  Will Justin return in time to save Brook  or will Brook end up suffering the same fate as her mother.  Guess you will have to read it to find out :)

I thought that the book was Awesome!!!  I love the characters ( I love Justin's nickname for Brook, he calls her Brooklet) I love the way the author wrote such a intriguing plot with a hint of romance, a lot of mystery and just a sprinkle of danger. Oh, The Author also put a few French words in the book with is cool to read. The book is 435 pages but the story is so interesting that you do not even notice the amount of pages until the book is finished and then you are like "What! It cannot be finished yet!"  Overall I give the book 5 out of 5 stars.

I cannot wait to read the next book in the series that will be available in  2016 but for now I will check out some of her other books. If you want to see more books by Mrs Rosanna M White just click on the link below

I would like to thank Bethany House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was not asked to write a favorable review, Just a honest one.
