The Tutor's Daughter

 Book Info

About The Tutor's Daughter
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.
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?

My review:

I have read a couple of Ms. Klassen’s books, but not all of them. I enjoyed getting to know Emma, she seemed like a sweet romantic girl at first. The book did start very slow, and there were some things that were very weak—such as Emma, at times. I enjoyed the mystery in this book and wondered who was doing these things. I had my ideas… but won’t give away any spoilers.

I loved the ending of this book. It is so sweet. If you like historical romances then you’ll love THE TUTOR’S DAUGHTER. It is written in the same style as other well-known historical/regency writers.  I absolutely loved the cover too. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.  3.5 stars
