In Regency England an advantageous match could set up a lady for life. Julia knows Matthew Blake, copper mine owner and very eligible bachelor, is the gentleman she should set her eyes upon. But why can’t she steal her gaze away from his younger brother, Isaac.

Julia Twethewey needs a diversion to mend her broken heart, so when her cousin invites her to Lanwyn Manor, Julia eagerly accepts. The manor is located at the heart of Cornwall’s mining industry, and as a guest Julia is swept into its intricate world. It’s not long, though, before she realizes something dark lurks within the home’s ancient halls.

As a respected mine owner’s younger son, Isaac Blake is determined to keep his late father’s legacy alive through the family business, despite his brother’s careless attitude. In order to save their livelihood—and that of the people around them—the brothers approach the master of Lanwyn Manor with plans to bolster the floundering local industry. Isaac can’t deny his attraction to the man’s charming niece, but his brother has made clear his intentions to court the lovely visitor. And Isaac knows his place.

When tragedy strikes, mysteries arise, and valuables go missing, Julia and Isaac find they are pulled together in a swirl of strange circumstances, but despite their best efforts to bow to social expectations, their hearts aren’t so keen to surrender.

Perfect for fans of Poldark, Sarah Ladd’s latest Regency romance, The Thief of Lanwyn Manor, explores Cornwall, England, and the secrets within one of its historic manor houses.

My Review

It is very rare that I find a sequel that is better than the first book but this book blew me away. I could hardly set this book down. Though, The Governess of Penwythe Hall was a fabulous book, I fell more in love with this one.

I loved following, Julia’s story. She was the oldest girl from the last book and I LOVED her character. She was not your typically Regency female but she wasn’t your cliche “special one” either that I have seen in this types of books. She was a breathe of fresh air and I just loved everything about her. I connected with her more than I did Delia. Isaac was also amazing. I really, really liked his character. He was the perfect male protagonist that left me cheering and hoping throughout this whole novel.

Though most of the characters were lovable there were a few that I did not like like Julia’s aunt and Matthew. I know they were the “antagonists” of the story but I still did not like them much.

The mystery in this novel was so much more real and heart pounding than in the last one. I was sucked in from the first page it appeared. The mystery really made this story stand out to me.

I really enjoyed this novel and I cannot wait to read more of Ms. Ladd’s books in this future!

*I received this book from the author/publisher through Netgalley and Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to write a positive review.*
