Elijah Hollister was happy as a Major and had never wanted to be the Earl especially since it meant losing his brother. His brother hadn't been the Earl for very long either. Miss Catriona Brown is on a quest to find a treasure. She believes that a tapestry that Elijah posses is a map to said treasure and seeks to purchase it from Elijah. However, his brother had already been tipped off that the tapestry was a map and hid it. Elijah suspects that his brother's death wasn't an accident and perhaps this treasure is at the heart of it. He decides to keep Catriona close to him until he can figure out if she is a part of his brother's death.
I liked that the heroine wasn't a simpering debutant. Catriona was intelligent and well educated. The novel was well written and quite engaging. The supporting characters are also well written and are a part of the novel. I will put this novel on my re-read shelf.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
