These three novellas span three time periods, 1815, 1862, and 1890. The three ladies in each of the stories had several things in common but the strongest was their spunk. They were strong, opinionated women especially for their time periods.
The Gentleman Smuggler’s Lady started out with a bang. Smuggler’s boarded the ship as it came into shore and Helen was right in the middle of it. She was on a mission to care for her ailing father. So how does it all tie in to her care of her father and the smuggler?
The Doctor’s Woman begins in a sad note. Emmy loses her doctor father to death but is persuaded to go to Fort Snelling. Medical care is needed but unknown to all, Dr. James Clark has arrived. He has modern medical advances but Emmy still uses herbs and such as medicinal cures which goes against Dr. Clark’s teachings.
A House of Secrets has an added venture of a haunted house used for two purposes. When Amanda learns who the owner is of her house she wants to purchase, the knowledge is the beginning of a downward spiral. What then happens between her fiancé and herself and how is it resolved?
These were three novellas written by the same author, Michelle Grief, and each were interesting in their own right.
These were so “intriguing” that I read them in a short period of time. I enjoyed the backgrounds and the stories behind each one. A five star rating as far as I’m concerned!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
