While remaining in Ms. Hunter’s Regency era world, A Search for Refuge offers readers a different perspective on the period. With a quieter setting, her characters still show an incredible spirit and determination that will make readers recognize them as being distinctly those created by Ms. Hunter.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading A Search for Refuge! In reading this story, I found it to be slightly more sedated and less humorous than Ms. Hunter’s previous novels. While this calmer approach seems appropriate to this particular tale, Ms. Hunter returns to her full effect in the rest of the series, as evidenced in the sneak peak for A Defense of Honor, which is also included in this e-novella. Ms. Hunter continues to engage her readers in a interesting cast of characters and intriguing settings of the Regency Era. Yet, she brings a new set of circumstances that make for compelling storylines and fascinating directions for her characters’ development. By the end of this novella and the novel excerpt, I couldn’t wait to read the first full novel of the Haven Manor series!

At times, it gets a little confusing. We are introduced also to Nash's really big difficulties with marriage and family. His reasons are crystal clear, and the reader can genuinely accept his stance. With that, also comes the sudden change in emotion. Its fair to say that Nash has had time to get to know Margaretta - the resolution to her plight and his feelings changing and suddenly overcoming all his fears seem a little too hurried.
The dialogue/interchange between Nash, Mr Fortescue & Samuel Albany is clever, and was a great way to put off the real threat that is being posed, at least for a time - enabling Nash to step in and act. It wasn't clear where her father stood, until that last interaction in the office, and it was a good one.
Overall, I enjoyed this story. Clever plot line, and something entirely new from the author. I'm looking forward to the release of the first book in the summer.
Update: I have read the book that comes after this one and it is just fantastic. I assure you that you'll want to read this one and keep going. This particular series that Kristi is releasing is going to be one that will truly rock you to the core, make you think and cry and laugh and sigh.
