Great book. Easy read, can ready in one sitting.
Second Book in Trilogy - Very enjoyable reading
I loved this series. It will make you laugh and cry, what a good read.
Second book of a trilogy. I did not know this book was part of a triology let alone the second book. Very seperate and independant books. The first and third books are 'Wild Escapade' & 'Wild Masquerade'.
"Wild Serenade" is the second book in the Pedigrue sisters trilogy. This book has a faster pace than the inital "Wild Escapade".
Patience, as the middle sister, wanted to become independent enough to control her own destiny. To that end, she is hired as the governess of Captain Garrick Dalton's sister Emaline. That should be easy enough, even though she's never been a governess before. However, no one told Patience that Emaline spent years shipwrecked, and her parents and two brothers died.
Even though the books are supposedly a romance, mystery abounds, and Patience finds herself trying to help Emaline stay alive while not succumbing to her employer's charms.
A shipping magnate doesnt give the new governess all the secrets about her new charge she is to take care of and he has even more plans for the governess than what he originally hires her for.
Although she hasn't a whit of experience, Patience Pedigrue is sure she can be a good governess. When she arrives at Miss Bodrill's School for Young Ladies, she feels ready to meet her new charge, nine-year-old Emaline Dalton. But what she finds is a screaming, wild-eyed urchin who looks as though she's never had a bath!
When Nantucket shipping magnate Captain Garrick Dalton enlisted Patience's services, he neglected to tell her that his sister Emaline was raised by a primitive tribe after being lost in a shipwreck. Nor did he mention that a killer was stalking the child. Even more audaciously, the handsome captain has now created a plan to save Emaline's life - one that includes marrying Patience!
