Brentwood's Ward

Brentwood's Ward
Michelle Griep
Nicholas desperately needs money so he can send his sister into the country to get well. When the opportunity to take a lucrative job comes up he asks very few questions. His job is to take care of the daughter of a wealthy merchant while the merchant is on a business trip to America. But the daughter, Emily, proves to be more difficult to care for than he anticipated. Add silly women intend on marriage, someone trying to kill them, and a pregnant maid and Nicholas has a serious problem.

I haven't read anything by this author before so this was a pleasant surprise. The descriptions and suspense were well done and added to the story. The plot line, while unbelievable at times, was fun to read. The characters were likable, although the female protagonist leaned towards the annoying side.  The Christian elements were subtle, but well written and gave you a sense of faith instead of being blasted with it. Overall, I liked the story and will definitely pick up another book by this author.

I received this book free of charge from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
