The year is 1906. Lady Elizabeth (Libby) Sinclair comes to the Isles of Scilly to escape an unwanted engagement planned by her brother, Lord Telford. Libby is mistaken for another Elizabeth (Beth) who has mysteriously vanished.

Beth’s brother, Oliver Tremayne, is determined to find out what happened to his sister and is happy to accept Libby’s help in his quest. Libby’s brother shows up with her supposed intended and with Beth’s brother, they set out to solve the mystery of Beth’s disappearance. Meanwhile, LIbby and Oliver, find they have a lot in common and actually met a few years prior.

Many things are uncovered and discovered including the best of all, true love!

I recommend this book but definitely read it before you read #2 “Treasure an Heiress”.
