New Review: A Search for Refuge by Kristi Ann Hunter

About the Book

"Margaretta Fortescue desperately needs to disappear from London society, and her only hope is to follow the rumors of another young woman who recently made a life for herself away from the glare of society. Her search leads her to the market town of Marlborough where, in spite of her efforts to avoid attention, she can’t seem to elude local solicitor, Nash Banfield. 

All Nash wants is a quiet, sedate life—no risks or surprises. When Margaretta, clearly on the run and unwilling to answer questions, interrupts his solitude, his curiosity and his principles won’t let him leave this determined woman without assistance.
But will the truth of what Margaretta is running from be worth finally opening his heart up to a chance at love?"

My Thoughts

I am a huge fan of Kristi Ann Hunter's Hawthorne House series so I was super excited that she has another series coming out. A Search for Refuge is the prequel novella to the new Haven Manor series. I enjoyed this novella.

I thought this story was different from the Hawthorne House series but still very good. This story had more of a mystery/suspense flair to it that the previous books I've read by this author.

I empathized with Margeretta right away. She was in a terrible predicament through no fault of her own and she had to run away to make the best of things. I was nervous for her on several fronts...would she stay safe, would she have to be alone forever, how would she provide for herself?

Nash seemed to me to be like a "steady Eddy". Through his past experiences, he was wary of getting too close to Margeretta, even though he wanted to help her.

I loved Mrs. Lancaster! I loved her spunk, her helpful spirit, and most of all how she brought Jesus into everything. She inspired me to want to do the same.

If you like historical, Christian fiction, I recommend this book. As of the time of this post, it is free for e-readers.

Book 1 of the Haven Manor series releases on June 5, 2018, so this weekend is the perfect time to read A Search for Refuge so you are ready to start book 1 on Tuesday!
