Freedom's Price

GIVEAWAY
JOHNSON, CHRISTINE
FREEDOM'S PRICE

Sometimes the hardest step to take is the first step forward

When Englishwoman Catherine Haynes loses both her father and her home in 1856, she decides to cross the Atlantic to find her American mother's family in Louisiana. She enlists the help of Tom Worthington, a dashing Key West man who makes his living salvaging wrecked ships.

When Catherine arrives at the plantation, she finds that her family has left it in the care of a manager -- who's let if fall into disrepair. Torn between returning to Key West with Tom and beginning the hard work of restoring the plantation. Catherine soon finds herself snared in a plot to steal her inheritance. When an incredible secret comes to light, both she and Tom will face a choice: grip their dreams ever tighter or step forward in faith -- even if it costs them everything.

My Review:

Captivating and enthralling and all things scrumptiously good. And...squuueallll...there's a definite Gothic vibe to this historical romance. Sent chills up my spine in places. A derelict plantation with all kind of mysteries. Darkly sinister. An unprotected young woman trying to make connections with her past. And a truly despicable villain. Thankfully he is countered by the most gallant of heroes.

Tom Worthington. Be still my heart. Noble and daring and tormented by his past. I do so love a conflicted hero. Fireworks spark the first time he meets Catherine and she leads him on a merry chase. Impulsive and independent and determined to make a new life among her mother's people. Only it all goes horribly wrong. A real nail-biting page-turner with plenty of swoonworthy moments peppered throughout. A delicious conclusion to the Keys of Promise series.

  22. When you said "Gothic vibe" my heart gave a lurch. Please don't enter me. I have a small gift card balance from hubby and it should be en route to my residence at any given moment. �� Thanks for your fabulous review as I had forgotten all about this book.
