Litfuse Publicity Group: "No Safe Harbor" by Elizabeth Ludwig Review

She came to America searching for her brother. Instead all she’s found is a web of danger.
Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, clutching his letter, she leaves Ireland for America, desperate to find him. Her search leads her to a houseful of curious strangers, and one man who claims to be a friend–Rourke Walsh. Despite her brother’s warning, Cara trusts Rourke, revealing her purpose in coming to New York.
She’s then thrust into a world of subterfuge, veiled threats, and attempted murder, including political revolutionaries from the homeland out for revenge. Her questions guide her ever nearer to locating her brother–but they also bring her closer to destruction as those who want to kill him track her footsteps.
With her faith in tatters, all hope flees. Will her brother finally surface? Can he save Cara from the truth about Rourke… a man she’s grown to love?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There is absolutely nothing like a good romance, a good mystery, and the gospel all tied together.  Yes, this book hit the mark with absolutely no problem.  From the very first page all the way through the end, I was mesmerized.  Elizabeth Ludwig is one of my favorite authors, and this is a book that will keep you completely intrigued and enthralled.  The style is readable, and the characters are 3-dimensional.

There are two things I especially relished in this book.  Rarely do I get to read a mystery that takes place in the 1800's.  It takes a historian to be able to do it, but the author has done it.  It makes sense, and it will keep you guessing till the end--it sure did me!  I also love the Christian message that is so intricately woven into the framework of the story.  All to often, Christian authors preach or only nominally include the Christian message.  It takes a gifted author to weave faith of God into the very fabric of the story without detracting from the story.  Elizabeth Ludwig is amazing!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
