Catriona (Cate) is an antiquarian who arrives at Elijah's doorstep to explain that in the huge treasure collection in his home, there is a special tapestry which is a secret treasure map. As her story progresses, Elijah begins to believe that his brother's accident may have been something other than an accident.
I am a fan of history, and the idea of a secret in a tapestry is something that immediately, drew me into the story.
The character development was well done. I liked both Cate and Elijah. They were the people they were because of their history. She has a huge knowledge about antiquities and yet because she is a woman, the people in charge will not even speak to her. Elijah was emotionally abandoned by his mother. He loved his brother very much, but he was never treated in a kindly manner by his mother. That has colored his view of the world and especially his view of women.
I was disappointed, when it seemed to me that a great deal of today crept into the story. There did not seem to be much effort to prevent the characters from speaking as though they lived in the 21st century. That was jarring to me. I am not a stickler, but for me this was too out of place.
The plot was interesting. I liked the mystery and the efforts to search and investigate were very well done. At times Cate became annoying in her insistence that she had to insert herself every where Elijah was trying to gather information.
I have not read other works by Ms Burke, but I will do so. It is evident she is a talented author.
The dialog between the heroine and hero was supposed to be flirty, bold and slightly modern, instead it felt forced and awkward. It was so bad I was embarrassed reading it.
Every one is a great read. Downloading every one of her books should give you an idea how good they are.
