The Thief’s daughter is right up my street. It is one of those rare books, beautifully written and with all the elements of a great read: Excitement, a good dose of accurate history, and a beautiful love story. I read the last half in one sitting, desperate to find out what happened in the end. There were times when I was anxious for the safety of Jenna, or for Jack, and times when I had a tear in my eye.

Jenna is the thief’s daughter, and Jack is a thief-taker. They were so well drawn that I could see them both in my imagination. I could see the rugged setting of the Cornish coast, too, although I have never been there. Great descriptive writing, but with a light touch.

Jenna and Jack first meet at a hanging, which sets the pace for the novel. Theirs is a tender love-story fraught with danger and suspicion. We have a cast of suitably nasty villains mixed up in the 18th century smuggling trade. Silas was a believable baddie, causing a rift which propelled the story forward to its exciting denouement.

This was a great read, and it deserves all its five stars. If you like your romance with a bit of adventure, you will love this book.

As a lover of the Poldark series, Victoria Cornwall’s The Thief’s Daughter caught my attention, as it’s also set in 18th century Cornwall. I looked forward to reading of tricorn hats, horse rides and stunning coastal scenery – and I wasn’t disappointed. From the first off I was rooting for Cornwall’s heroine, Jenna Cartwright, a gutsy young woman born into a family of dubious repute. With little options left open, Jenna marries young but is then widowed when her husband falls prey to the hangman’s noose. With no one to support her, Jenna’s forced to make her own way in the world and it is then that she encounters the enigmatic, Jack Penhale. As well as fantastic characters, The Thief’s Daughter also has an absorbing plotline, with plenty twists and turns to keep the reader satisfied. We learn that Jack was involved in ensuring Jenna’s brother, Silas, was imprisoned, but things are never as simple as they seem. With smuggling, stolen property and a dangerous trip to France, this is a historical romance stuffed with page turning tension. A cracking debut from Cornwall, which leaves the reader hoping for more of the same, very soon.

This was a step away from my comfort zone as this is the first ever historical romance I have read. Let me tell you I am glad I made the leap of faith with this one. What I found was a tale including romance, drama, intrigue and a little bit of betrayal. The research that the author has so clearly done into the historical elements shone through and is placed in the story in such a way that I feel I have learnt something but not been lectured.

The story is one which kept my attention from start to finish and even though, it being a romance, you know what the outcome will be, there is nothing predictable about the story. It is fast moving and dramatic and you can't help rooting for both Jack and Jenna as they deal with the local smuggling community, law enforcement and Jenna's less than supportive brother, Silas

The Thief’s Daughter is, on the surface, a tale of romance and of danger - an irresistible combination for any lover of historical fiction. However, Victoria Cornwall reaches deeper and seamlessly weaves a plot that encompasses the moral dilemmas of familial love versus romantic love and of poverty versus justice. Her beautifully evoked Cornish setting is awash with dangerous and difficult choices for Jenna, through whom Victoria Cornwall brings to life the realities of a woman in eighteenth-century Cornwall. However, all is not dim and dark, the story has romance at its core and from the very first meeting of Jenna and Jack until the very end, we are willing the two of them to overcome the betrayals that look set to prevent their romance from flourishing. I absolutely loved this book - I loved the escapism it provided, I loved Jenna, Jack, the romance, the adventure and the derring-do that ran through it. It became a book about love and a book about honour and I cannot wait to read her next one.

Victoria Cornwall's exciting, atmospheric story opens with a hanging and this event suggests the tone of the novel. It's set in 18th century Cornwall, which was admittedly the gorgeously beautiful place we know today, but was also one of the most poverty-stricken parts of the country. It's no wonder there was an active smuggling trade. Amidst all the scenic beauty, many people starved and struggled to live any kind of life that wasn't all misery. The scenes set in the debtors' prison were especially grim.

But this is romantic fiction in which we expect the hero and heroine to win through against even overwhelming odds - which they do. Jenna is a great heroine, spirited, smart and believable. Jack is the kind of hero I wish I could meet in real life. Jack and Jenna both have difficult choices to make and they work hard to deserve their happy ending. The thief-taker gets - well, I won't spoil the story!

Victoria's writing style is engaging. I read this novel over a couple of evenings but the second evening stretched into the early morning. I'm looking forward to Victoria's next story very much indeed.
