Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Young Nell Winston leaves her job at a small English resort hotel to assume the daunting post of paid companion to Allegra Selkirk, a 19-year-old girl injured in the same carriage wreck that killed her parents. It is 1893, Freud's ideas about hysterical illness are circulating, and Allegra's non-resident guardian hopes Nell can effect a cure?as well as spy on the uncle, aunt, and shifty doctor who hold heiress Allegra in thrall. Other traditional elements ensue: enviable country estate, secret love affair across class boundaries, sleeping potions and laudanum, etc. Largely formulaic and derivative, this title will appeal principally to series fans and young adults.

Format: Paperback
Nell is an intelligent, caring young woman hired by Allegra's guardian to look after her welfare. The victim of a tragic accident, Allegra can neither speak nor walk, but only her guardian and Nell firmly beleive that her handicap is all in her mind. As Nell gains Allegra's friendship and confidence, she is constantly amazed at how Allegra's other family members and even trusted family servants seem to want to hold back and even sabotage Allegra's recovery. Does the trusted family doctor really know what is best for Allegra? Does the maid Wallis really have Allegra's best interests at heart? Do Allegra's aunt and uncle really care about her, or only her fortune that she is due to inherit? Jewel, Miss Benedict, Felicity, Nanny--all become suspect as Nell desparately follows her thread of suspicion and tries to help Allegra. This mystery was one of the best that Peart has written.

Jane Peart's work is incredible with her elements of mystery, romance, and adventure. So far Thread of Suspicion has been my favorite, although I haven't read A Perilous Bargain. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the above-mentioned characteristics.

I loved this book. It was a very well written mystery with twists and turns all the time. You think that something will happen and then the conplete opposite of what you thought would happen happens. I love that this book is a romance as well it makes the story very intersting.
