Litfuse Publicity Book Tours Presents: The Tutor's Daughter by Julie Klassen

Filled with page-turning suspense, The Tutor’s Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast–a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions–where danger lurks, faith is tested, and romance awaits.

Emma Smallwood, determined to help her widowed father when his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begin teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music room empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes?

The baronet’s older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems–and secrets–of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father’s academy. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her…

When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart?

My Review:

I loved this visit to old England. The Tutor's Daughter is a mystery with a bit of romance. The mystery goes to almost the end and was a surprise to me.
Emma Smallwood and her father have accepted an invite to go and teach the younger son's of Sir Giles Weston, Rowan and Julian. Emma hopes that this change from the school he runs will help revive him from his depression.
Lady Weston meets them at the door, very surprised they are there. They are later shown to their rooms and told to stay away from the North Wing?
Emma and her Dad are also reunited with their formal pupils Henry and Phillip Weston. Emma harbors feelings for Phillip, where as Henry was always teasing and pulling pranks on her. There is also a young girl at their home, Lizzie Henshaw, who is Lady Weston's Ward. It will take you quite awhile to decide if she is a friend or a foe? Henry Weston I found to be wonderful God loving man, he seems to really care for most anyone, including risking his own life.
Sit down and have a cup of tea, and enjoy this great story.

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
