Blog Tour: The Thief of Lanwyn Manor by Sarah E Ladd


About the Book

Book: The Thief of Lanwyn Manor
Author: Sarah E. Ladd
Genre: Regency Romance
Release Date: January 7, 2020

In this sweet Regency romance, 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?

Cornwall, England 1818—Julia Twethewey needs a diversion to mend her broken heart, so when her cousin invites her to Lanwyn Manor, Julia eagerly accepts. Lanwyn Manor is 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 in 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 the livelihood of those 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 his intentions to court the lovely guest clear. And Isaac knows his place.

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

My Review

The Thief of Lanwyn Manor is the second installment from Sarah E Ladd’s Cornwall series. Even though it is part of a series, I believe it can be read as a stand along.  I have enjoyed her books in the past and I think this one is among my favorites written by her. This drama filled tale tells the story of broken hearted Julia needing to escape her hometown and goes to help her cousin Jane. Julia meets Isaac and they are suddenly thrown into solving a mystery of what is going on and who is responsible. I like trying to figure of “who done it”. It was a little predictable but still very much enjoyable. 

I am giving The Thief of Lanwyn Manor five stars. I am hoping there will be another addition to the Cornwall series. I would love to find out what happens next. I recommend it for readers who enjoy inspiring historical fiction. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
