    I liked this romantic mystery set in South Carolina where Edward Archer has come to see what is going on in a house that is supposed to be owned by his cousin, the Duchess of Peckham. He meets Charity Stonewright, and there is an instant attraction. Over the course of his stay, he discovers (view spoiler)[that the house was used to transport slaves to freedom during the civil war, there is a hidden treasure somewhere on the property, a dead body that turns out to be Charity's grandmother, and th I liked this romantic mystery set in South Carolina where Edward Archer has come to see what is going on in a house that is supposed to be owned by his cousin, the Duchess of Peckham.

    This was a free kindle read. It was a fairly good storyline with my major issue being that occationally I didn't get a good feel of time passage. I kept questioning how long it had been between some scenes and there were a number of times I was wondering if something could have happened already. Some of the secondary characters could have been developed better and it seemed like the ending was rushed. This was a clean historical that did a good job of feeling like it's time period.

    My Review: First response: He's just trying to help out his cousin with a legal matter. She's just trying to hang onto her home and survive. He's English. She's American. Can they set aside their differences and find their similarities long enough to find the treasure and love? Full review coming up on my blog. Edward Archer isn't a barrister, but he does know English law. His cousin, the Duchess of Peckham, the former Charlotte Haywood, has some property in Charleston, S.C. with a disputed title. My Review: First response: He's just trying to help out his cousin with a legal matter. She's just trying to hang onto her home and survive. He's English. She's American. Can they set aside their differences and find their similarities long enough to find the treasure and love? Full review coming up on my blog. Edward Archer isn't a barrister, but he does know English law. His cousin, the Duchess of Peckham, the former Charlotte Haywood, has some property in Charleston, S.C. with a disputed title. Her American lawyer, Mr. Tarte, doesn't seem to be in any hurry to settle the matter, so the duchess asks Edward to go to Charleston and resolve the issue once and for all. He sails for America with his sister, Lady Hildegard, a typical sheltered young lady of her day. If this ran true to romantic formula, the rich Englishman would find a lovely, but penniless American girl with no claim to the house, whom the criminal American lawyer has been threatening. He would turn the lawyer over to the authorities, fall in love with and marry the girl, and take her back to England. In the meantime, his sister would have met a perfectly acceptable rich young man to fall in love with and marry in America. They would move into the Duchess' old home and raise several children of their own for the next generation's stories. But, I liked Ms. Corwin's idea even better! It was far more exciting and I hadn't read it before. A refreshingly new historical plot! Edward and Charity (our lovely, young, American girl) were well written. You got to know them well enough to understand them and what was going to set them off (anything the other one did or said). The secondary characters weren't quite so well defined. Lady Hildegard was perhaps better done than the rest because of the role she plays at the end, but still not fully fleshed out. This did serve to keep you focused on the main combatants and their attempts to outwit each other and survive the twists and turns as the plot winds up to its crisis. And I couldn't tell until the very end which one was going to give in. I recommend this book for those of you who like your traditional historical romances with feisty heroines and handsome heroes. This was a BookBub acquisition via Amazon. My honest review is given without any compensation. All opinions are fully my own. ~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review

    Likes and dislikes. I liked most of the characters. The "cousin" could have been more fully introduced, and the little sister was portrayed as something of an air-head, making her elopement seem rushed. Likes and dislikes.

    Okay, so Edward is in town a few days, he might have thought Charity was pretty, once, thought to himself that he would see to it she was never left homeless, and suddenly he was thinking how much he loves her. What? I’m wondering where the hell that came from. That didn’t make a bit of sense. It was a decent story about who owned the house in Charleston, Charity or the duchess, who sent Edward to look into it. And while he was looking around the big house he found a hidden door in the cellar and Okay, so Edward is in town a few days, he might have thought Charity was pretty, once, thought to himself that he would see to it she was never left homeless, and suddenly he was thinking how much he loves her.

It was a decent story about who owned the house in Charleston, Charity or the duchess, who sent Edward to look into it. And while he was looking around the big house he found a hidden door in the cellar and found human remains, that they decided had been there at least 25 years. No sex and maybe one kiss. As to the narration: This was mostly full of Americans and should have been read by an American, even the duchess in England was American BUT Ruth Urquhart read it and she cannot do an American accent, not a man or a woman.

    More than Just a Romance Novel While romantic interest is a factor, the weaving together of this intriguing mystery of true ownership of property, lost gold, and then the solving of a murder was magnificently crafted by Amy Corwin. One can not help but become involved in trying to figure out the truth. Someone should make this into a movie! Listening Hallmark Mystery Channel??

    A Wonderful HEA Amy is so clever with her plots and so talented in bringing her characters to life such that you feel you know them and would recognize them if you saw them. She packs so much into her stories, highs and lows, twists and turns and of course...romance, sweet, clean but passionate romance. I don't want the Archer series to end.

    Loved the book on Charity and Edward! Edward was asked to go to America to help with a legal issue for the Duchess. Charity knows her home was never sold and she refuses to leave. Edward knows there is a mystery here and with the help of Charity they are going to solve it. A great read with a beautiful ending!

    I really enjoyed the the story because it had different thoughts than the usual repetitive ones from other historical books I've read. I love the mystery and it and the search for finding out the truth. The only thing I didn't like is the amount of doubt Miss Stoneridge gives out. She feels like she has problems with men in the past but that part is vague. Still really good!

    Delightful read Enjoyed reading the book. There were some interesting twist and turns in the story. From discovery of a body hidden for years, underground slave train routes, hidden treasure and two romances.

    Great series I enjoy this series very much. Little mysteries tied up with romance. The characters have personalities that the author could develop deeper but then the book would be more than a three hour read. Still I would have liked more of a background on all of them.

    Intriguing I love a book that can keep me guessing. While this one still had some aspects that were fairly predictable, there were also many that were not. It was those unpredictable aspects that kept me interested and I couldn't put the book down. Intriguing I love a book that can keep me guessing.
