Ladd, Sarah E. The Curiosity Keeper: A Treasures Of Surrey Novel. Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, inc. 2015.
Set in England, in the early 1800’s, Camille Iverness works in her father’s Curiosity Shop as a bookkeeper and clerk. Caught in the middle of a mystery regarding the Bevoy (a ruby rumored to bless or curse the possessor), Camille must make difficult choices concerning her family, loyalty, possessions, trust and the handsome apothecary, John Gilchrist. Full of suspense, adventure, secrets, and romance written in high-quality, fast-paced style, The Curiosity Keeper delivers.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Having read all of Sarah Ladd’s previous novels, The Whispers On The Moors series, I waited (not so patiently) for her newest novel, The Curiosity Keeper, to become available. Loving the Regency genre of fiction as well as this favorite author, this book was perfect for me. The interesting tidbits of history surrounding the area and shop, coupled with the mystery of the Bevoy, made for a quick read well past bedtime. My favorite part? Tevy, the large dog involved in the story with a personality all his own! I already look forward to the next book in the series which I hope is in progress now (right, Ms. Ladd?)!
