She always knew a piece of her heart was missing…
Cecile has been raised to a life of privilege at Polruan House, by her widowed father and aunt. Now she’s of age, they are determined that she make a proper match, but Cecile’s heart belongs to their coachman, Sam – most definitely not suitable marriage material.
When Sam turns to his friend, smuggler Zach Carver, for help eloping with Cecile, Zach tells of a recent encounter with Lise, a beautiful but poor girl in St Ives, who is the mirror image of Cecile.
And so a daring plan is born to briefly swap the girls. But bringing Cecile and Lise together will uncover an astonishing family secret of a bold escape from a loveless marriage, a treacherous shipwreck and a sister thought lost to the sea long ago…
The Smuggler’s Girl by Jennie Fenton
What a delightful and adventurous book.
The characters were attention grabbing and the flow of the plot was perfect.
I enjoyed the book as it is the first book by the author I am reading.
I am rating it five golden stars as the book worth them.
I love Cecile, Lise, Zach, Sam and the Moxey’s brothers. You cannot help falling in love with the characters.
The title and book cover perfectly fits the storyline.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are mine.
