3 stars. 'With a heroine whose emotions and motivations aren’t always consistent or clear, some overstuffed prose and a plot that’s slow to get rolling, Emberwilde isn’t up to Ladd’s usual level of excellence. Nevertheless, a base hit by Ladd is equivalent to a home run by others, and readers will find plenty to enjoy, including a good-hearted hero, well-drawn secondary characters and a gripping finale.'

I really like how the mystery and the romance unfolded in this book. There was enough suspense to keep your attention throughout the book with a satisfactory conclusion. And the romance of two handsome yet vastly different men attracting Isabel's attention was well done. You felt the ease of the attraction to the mysterious Mr. Bradford yet you also feel the draw to the steadiness and character of the handsome Mr. Galloway.
I also enjoyed the supporting characters. Isabel's sister Lizzie had a fun personality and helped relieve some of the somberness in several situations. Isabel's cousin Constance was, for the most part, a real help and friend to Isabel in the new world she found herself in. Mr. Galloway's big, burly, friend and co-worker, McKinney, was fun to imagine. And his cousin, Henry, was a good support to him also.
All in all, this book is very well written with a gentle pace that will be easy to follow and very enjoyable. Oh, and I can't forget the setting! The description of the countryside and the Emberwilde forest makes you want to live there! :)
*Thanks to Litfuse and the publisher for a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are my own.*
Isabel Creston's life takes an unexpected turn when she receives the news that an estranged aunt is offering her a home and all the benefits of a privileged lifestyle. Having lived most of her life at the Fellsworth School, benefiting from the charity of others, Isabel dares to hope for a brighter future for herself and her little sister, Lizzie.
Arriving at the grand Emberwilde estate curiously breeds a sense of unease; an aura of family secrets surrounds the vast property and societal expectations effectively suffocate the freedom that Isabel so desperately craves. When two handsome men vie for Isabel's personal attention, she is faced with a dangerous choice. Only one can truly hold the key to her heart, while the other may not be at all who he declares himself to be.
Sarah Ladd's books just keep getting better and better. "The Dawn of Emberwilde" is an inspiring story of faith and determination, expertly woven with suspenseful romance.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
The heroine seemed a bit passive for someone who planned to live life on her own wits. She would succumb to her aunt, never ask questions of her uncle, and would do things against her better judgment for those "in charge."
The hero had little back story, which bothers me in any book. In this case, we are to believe he had reasons for doing what he did, but we don't have a clue as to what those reasons were--something in his past that is never explained.
I will try the author again, as I believe she has another book in the series.
