THE TUTOR'S DAUGHTER
Fans will rejoice with Klassen’s latest sweet, Regency historical love story. The storyline flows fairly well throughout the book, and gothic touches heighten the reading enjoyment. Klassen really knows the era well, and she writes interesting, complex characters.
When Emma Smallwood’s widowed father must close his academy for well-to-do boys, she travels with him to the Cornwall coast. There, he tutors the four sons of a baronet. When mysterious things begin to occur and danger mounts, Emma must figure out which of the baronet’s older sons, Phillip or Henry, is to be trusted, perhaps even loved, and which is to be blamed for the troubling “accidents.” (BETHANY HOUSE, Jan., 416 pp., $14.99)
