Book Description

It's the middle of the 18th century, when smuggling is rife in Cornwall, and cargo ships crossing the English Channel are prey to attacks from pirates. The Lady Emma, on passage to France, meets a different fate…

High on the cliffs above Mellin Cove, Kit St Neot reins in his black stallion and peers out into the storm. He gasps when he sees the tall-masted ship, helpless against the relentless fury of the waves, being hurled to the rocks.
Adrenaline courses through his body as he gallops to the beach and throws himself from his horse. Plunging into the surf, he strikes out for the small, limp body he can see being tossed by the breakers. In one desperate bid he plucks the creature from the sea and struggles ashore.
But back at Mellin Hall Kit is in for a surprise when he leaves the half-dead victim in the care of his housekeeper, Jesemy. For the person he rescued from the sea is not the cabin boy he thought, but a lovely young woman - and she has no recollection of who she is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable adventure 2 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read and enjoyed the first book in this series, Danger at Mellin Cove, I looked forward to reading this one and was not disappointed. It is well written in a simple and compelling style, and the imagery of the Cornish coast and the atmosphere is very good. It was a little predictable in places but that doesn't really matter, because it's an enjoyable and immersive adventure which is what I was looking for, and I like the fact that it doesn't contain excessive violence, swearing etc. It's just a fun read for anyone.
My only complaint would be that the goals and lives of the female characters are always portrayed as getting married and having a family (we find out that Hedra from the first book already has a child and another on the way), and I just wish we could see another side of the female characters that don't always end so traditionally - however this is just a personal bugbear of mine, and I appreciate that this was how things were during the time period that this book is set, so in that respect it's very much historically accurate. I liked aspects of Dewi's character for this reason and how she isn't afraid to go against convention and goes riding out to help in the crisis regardless.
All in all, I'd recommend this book if you enjoy a fairly short and easy to read wholesome adventure story, especially if as I do you enjoy tales set on the Cornish coast.

I chose this rating because I was captivated throughout the story. Rena George is a talented storyteller, drawing the reader into the plot- sometimes leaving one breathless, wondering what will happen next. Exciting!
