The Curiosity Keeper - A Book Review

I'm always excited to read a book by Sarah E. Ladd!  She is such an elegant writer and knows how to perfectly pen regency novels.  The Curiosity Keeper is a nice blend of suspense, mystery and romance.  From the first page I was captivated and I stayed enthralled for the duration of the novel.

Camille helps her father who own's Iverness Curiosity Shop in London.  More and more she finds herself fighting off customers who have become angry with her father.  Now her very life is being threatened.  

 Jonathan is the heir to Kettering Hall.  When someone steals The Bevoy, a priceless ruby, Jonathan's father insists that Jonathan search for it.  His search leads him to London and to the Curiosity Shop.  He comes to Camille's rescue when she is being attacked and he takes her back to Kettering Hall to treat her injury.  When Camille overhears her father accusing her of stealing the ruby she knows she must start a new life.  Jonathan helps her find a job and Camille hides from her father.  Camille and Jonathan are getting closer, but Camille can't help but wonder if Jonathan's interest in her is more about the ruby than anything else.

I would definitely recommend The Curiosity Keeper especially if you love the regency era.  There is lots of twists and turns and it had a surprising end.  I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and I can't wait to see what Sarah E. Ladd writes next!
