 Book Description
Phoebe Von Bergen, the daughter of a German count, is excited to visit America for the first time while her father purchases sapphires in Helena, Montana. Little does she know, however, that her father's intentions--both for her and the gemstones--are not what she thinks.

Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the dignified young woman staying at the Broadwater Hotel more than a little intriguing. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie--a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.

Meeting Ian has changed everything for Phoebe, and she begins to consider staying in America, regardless of her father's plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger that results when her family's deception begins to unravel.
My Review
This was a very nicely written story. And I really enjoyed it! It had a great setting and plot, unique characters, and the mystery was wonderfully done. I was guessing right along with the characters as the story unfolded. I love characters that have high morals, and I agree with the book about how lies should never be told. But one thing that bothered me in this book was how Ian compared someones situation to lying. Given the evidence in the book it looked like that person had done everything they could.
 I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
