'Ladd’s third Regency outing (after Dawn at Emberwilde and The Curiosity Keeper) can easily stand on its own, but readers who enjoy this book will want to devour the trilogy.' (Library Journal)
“This novel reads well and fast; its vivid imagery and likeable characters fill the pages. The well-crafted metaphors and tight sequences make for an absorbing read. Though set around the Regency period, the style is fresh and the voice genuine. The spiritual aspect of the novel does not overpower; it is woven into the plot and provides a graceful way to unite the beliefs and morals of Annabelle and Owen Locke. I want to read more in the series.' (Historical Novel Reviews)
'With betrayals, murders, and criminal activity disrupting the peace at Fellsworth, Ladd fills the pages with as much intrigue as romance. Inspirational references are limited to a few mentions of prayers. A well-crafted story for fans of Regency novels.' (Publishers Weekly)
'Once again, Ladd delights readers with a skillfully plotted, suspenseful page-turner. . . Like all superior novelists, Ladd doesn’t default to pat endings, offering even her villains a potential happily-ever-after by putting her faith (not to mention the characters’ and the readers’) in God’s abiding mercy.' (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars)

A Stranger at Fellsworth tells the tale of Annabelle - a young socialite whom the world seems to be at her beckoning when scandal threatens to destroy it all. Orphaned with only a rather repugnant brother as her ward - she is expected to marry a man far her senior and less than savoury in his manner.
Annabelle decides to abandon her home and along with her maid, flee to her uncles estate and the school which her is superintendent. She finds an unexpected ally whom she literally bumps into but then when their paths cross at the opportune time when Annabelle needs a means of escape, he becomes her only option to remove herself from her brother’s plotting ways.
That ally - Owen Locke has secrets of his own. Tragedy and scandal follow him as well but there is nothing he wouldn’t do for his young daughter. When Annabelle is made a teacher at the school where she attends - more bonds will be created.
With the threat of poachers weighing heavy over the estate of Fellsworth and it’s neighbours - Owen and Annabelle may need each other more than they can ever guess as the danger maybe closer than home than they could ever have guessed.
I read this book in almost one sitting - it had suspense aplenty and just the right amount of tension to make it un-put-down-able.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via The Fiction Guild, and was not required to post a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.
There is a lot of intrigue and suspense threaded throughout this book as well as some pretty sordid characters.
The audiobook was also extremely well narrated. I highly recommend this one.
This is a clean story with a tiny bit of preaching, suspense, and forbidden romance. I loved it!
