danger lurking around the corner
There is a lot going on in this book. Samantha’s sister-in-law, Wilhelmina, is determined to find her a husband even though Samantha has repeatedly denied wanting one. Benjamin was Edward, Samantha’s brother’s best friend. Before he left on a business trip, Edward made Benjamin promise to act as Samantha’s guardian should something happen to him. Shortly thereafter, Edward’s ship sinks and Benjamin has a promise to keep. This story moves along at a good clip, has a variety of fascinating characters, hidden danger, a mystery to solve and lots of surprises. It does end in a cliffhanger, so we do have to wait for the next book in the series to find out what happens.
