Review of Beckman

BECKMAN may be purchased here.

Grace Burrowes

Beckman Haddonfield, son to the Earl of Bellefonte, is sent by his ailing father to oversee the running of one of his grandmother's properties.  Once there, Beckman meets the very attractive housekeeper, Sara Hunt, Sara's daughter, and the cook, Sara's sister.  It is apparent, that the Hunt's are keeping secrets, and, then, someone starts sabotaging Beckman's efforts to improve the property.

BECKMAN is the fourth book in the Lonely Lords series, but it can be read alone.  While I enjoyed BECKMAN, it is my least favorite book in the series, so far.  The truth of the matter is, that I found Sara a little annoying, because she wavered in telling Beckman her true situation a little to long.  While I understand Sara's mistrust of men after her experiences, she just couldn't seem to overcome her fears in a decent amount of time.  However, Sara has some very good qualities, in that, she is willing to sacrifice and work hard for her family.  Beckman is an equally likable hero, although his guilt over his wife's death seemed a little excessive, at times.  The secondary characters are great, and I can't wait for the next book.

NOTE;  I received this book in return for an impartial review.
