Review: The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen

The Tutor's Daughter
Julie Klassen

Bethany House Publishers
Pub Date   Jan 1 2013

Emma Smallwood, determined to help her widowed father when his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begin teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music room empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes?   The baronet's older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems--and secrets--of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father's academy. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her....   When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart?
  Filled with page-turning suspense, The Tutor's Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast--a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions--where danger lurks, faith is tested, and romance awaits

My Review:
This seemed like a really long book to me while I waited for the romance to unfold. That being said,
The Tudor's Daughter by Julie Klassen had plenty of mystery and historical accuracy to keep me reading until the end.  This was an overall enjoyable book.  I loved Emma as she discovered that
Phillip and Henry were not who she had at first thought them to be as men. The lesson being what you see in a persons outward character is not always who a person is on the inside.  The hero in The Tudor's Daughter was shown to be the perfect man for Emma in the end.  No spoilers on who that man is, it will be more fun for you to learn that for yourself.  I give The Tudor's Daughter 4 out of 5 stars.

I received an ebook copy of this book from Net Galley and Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
