A Beauty Refined (Sapphire Brides) By Tracie Peterson

Back of the Book

Phoebe Von Bergen is excited to accompany her father when he travels from Germany to purchase sapphires in Montana. Little does she know that her father's plans--for the gemstones and his daughter--are not what they seem.

Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the 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. Phoebe is determined to stay in America, regardless of her father's plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger as the deception begins to unravel.

My thoughts

I have really been enjoying the Sapphire Brides series and A Beauty Refined is no exception.  Phoebe is an intriguing character that comes across as a materialistic daughter who dotes on her father, but as the story progresses and her true nature comes out she truly develops into a lovable character.  Ian is humble from the start and while his back story doesn't really seem to fit with the man he is, it does help move the story along.  With great detail to scenes and a well developed plot A Beauty Refined is sure to be a best seller.

  I was given this book free from Bethany House Publishing for my honest review.
