If you’ve spent half a second around me or my blog, you know how much I adore Melanie Dickerson’s fairy tale retellings. You also probably know how much I adore Regency fiction, especially those books that make my Jane-Austen-loving heart smile. Combine Melanie Dickerson and Regency fiction?!? Yep.

Review (plus a Giveaway!): The Suspect’s Daughter by Donna Hatch

Review (plus a Giveaway!): The Suspect’s Daughter by Donna Hatch

Posted January 11, 2016 / 2 Comments

While The Suspect’s Daughter can easily be read as a stand-alone novel (I read this fourth book first and had no problems following along), the characters are much better appreciated when seen through the lens of the preceding books in the ROGUE HEARTS series. Donna Hatch graciously gave me copies of those first three books so I could catch up with all of Grant’s brothers. I’m going to do a mini-review for each one in a second, but let me just say about the whole series – WOW! Keep. Your. Fans. (and freezers) Nearby. All 4 books are a KissingBook Level 5

Sarah Ladd delivers another breathtaking story of suspense and romance, with characters who step off the page and into your heart. You will be captivated by Camille’s story – your emotions engaged – as you cheer and swoon and even shed a few tears along the way. Fans of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Julie Klassen, and Carrie Turansky will find a new favorite in Ladd’s books. The Curiosity Keeper is a marvelous place to start your collection.

The Suspect’s Daughter has it all – romance, suspense, great characters, skilled writing, and some quite spectacular kisses. I thoroughly enjoyed each aspect of this novel and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to fans of historical fiction, particularly the Regency era. If you like Julianne Donaldson, Julie Klassen, or Sarah E. Ladd, then you will want to read Donna Hatch’s Rogue series for sure!
