Throughout the Willowmere series we have seen that Oliver & Vivian were destined to have their own story. This book also includes Camille Bascomb's story as a secondary love interest. Camille's love interest is a tad predictable as soon as we are introduced to Vivian's brother you know where it is going. However it was still an enjoyable read with a little jewel theft mystery involved as well. There are also little flashbacks/descriptions that help if it has been awhile since you read the previous books to bring you up to speed again on the characters, etc. Looking forward to her next series.
Maybe I'd have been more enamored of this book if I had read the rest of the series. As a stand alone, it was fine, but nothing extra special. I felt like the reasons for the heroine and hero to not remain together were repeated too often. If you like a historical with an unconventional heroine and a mystery piece, I'd recommend Amanda Quick's Surrender.
