Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair, with her love of microscopes and nature, isn't favored in society. She flees to the beautiful Isles of Scilly for the summer and stumbles into the dangerous secrets left behind by her holiday cottage's former occupant, also named Elizabeth, who mysteriously vanished.

Oliver Tremayne--gentleman and clergyman--is determined to discover what happened to his sister, and he's happy to accept the help of the girl now living in what should have been Beth's summer cottage . . . especially when he realizes it's the curious young lady he met briefly two years ago, who shares his love of botany and biology. But the hunt for his sister involves far more than nature walks, and he can't quite believe all the secrets Beth had been keeping from him.

As Libby and Oliver work together, they find ancient legends, pirate wrecks, betrayal, and the most mysterious phenomenon of all: love.

    Having 4 Elizabeths noted in the story was such a fun concept (especially if one’s middle name happens to be that as well -smile). As the layers of the mystery developed and eventually unfolded, getting to know the characters was something I truly enjoyed. What made them more interesting was my initial judgement of some of them changed later on as I came to understand them better; they were not predictable. Oliver’s 95-year-old grandmother is something special. And his grandfather, filled with kindness and tall tales was just what you’d want. I also liked Darling, the kitten. Libby and Oliver truly seem to “fit” without even having to try which made the reading of their story all the more pleasant.
    Favorite Quote: “Everyone in the Scillies knew that when Oliver Tremayne took hold of your arm and looked deep into your eyes, he saw right down to your soul.”
    Tea Quote: “…his hands accepted by rote the mug of piping hot tea someone passed him. Old Mrs. Gillis always had it ready for the racers when they got back.”
    I give this a hearty 5 stars and am happy to recommend it, with thanks to the publisher and author for a gifted copy. All opinions are my own without compensation or expectation.

    The author has shared some lovely descriptions and photos of The Abbey Gardens that are featured in the book here: which can only add to the overall impression of the story.
