The Nature of a Lady by Roseanna M. White {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. All thoughts are my own.  

Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn't favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage's former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished. 

Oliver Tremayne--gentleman and clergyman--is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he's happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth's summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it's the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can't quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.

As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.

There are two things that I have come to expect from Roseanna M. White: absolutely stunning book covers and beautifully written historical tales that draw me into the story and through time. 

The Nature of a Lady did not disappoint on either front. Right from the start I was drawn into Libby and Oliver's characters. They were well written and I couldn't get enough of them. It was however the intrigue of the pirates that really drew me in. In all honesty, in all the many books I've read I cannot say that pirate ships are a topic that come up all too often... but if all the tales were like this... well that certainly should change. The story offered a beautiful blend of romance with mystery with great messages of faith too... all of my favorite aspects of a good story. 

This is book one in the new series and I for one cannot wait to see what comes next!
