GENRE: Historical Romance
Far from the all the action of World War I, in a charming tourist’s spot on Cape Breton Island, Elizabeth Eames has stumbled into the most wonderful man in the world. She’s landed herself in a world where wealth reigns supreme; where any eligible bachelor would meet her mother’s highest aspirations. Of course, Elizabeth is dead set on the one she’s certain should not be mentioned in letters home.
Actually, there’s a lot she’s not mentioning. Something is not-quite-right at the grand resort Oceanside, but Elizabeth isn’t giving up her job on the basis of a few little suspicions. How likely could some monstrous crime be happening under her nose, anyway?
I glanced over at Daro, wondering if he recalled our first meeting. The summer’s ball had been much of what I expected, though seeing Daro—not even properly meeting him, but seeing him—had changed everything, for always. I trudged on in his wake, with this very different, snowy enchantment all around me. The night of the ball had changed my life, and in fact, was how I had ended up on the Thistle, and then, here.
“Born in the sight of water,” are old lyrics that speak for me: For those of us from coastal towns, the sea forever calls.
“Trouble Cove,” features a journey up the eastern coast of Cape Breton Island – Nova Scotia’s northern tip – and the sea, in this, is more than the most romantic of backdrops. Wind and wave become part of the tale.
Like so many who have once visited Nova Scotia, the memory of iits rugged beauty fills me with an endless desire to return. Likewise, the island’s siren song entwines the plot, throughout; Trouble Cove.
