This review is for the book "A Beauty Refined" by Tracie Peterson. I love Tracie Peterson and this book did not disappoint me. This is the second book in her Sapphire Brides series but it is easily read as a standalone. In this book, Phoebe Von Bergen is excited to visit America for the first time. Unfortunately, her father is involved in some suspicious activities. Not only that but she discovers a secret about her mother that completely turns her world upside down. While she is dealing with that, she encounters a man named Ian Harper, who is a local lapidary and also very distrusting of her father. Because of Ian's past, he really doesn't know who to trust and who is lying to him. The journey of Phoebe and Ian curves around in this book, finally coming together in the end. I enjoyed the characters and the writing style of the story itself.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
Little does Phoebe know that her father's plans—for the sapphires and his daughter—are not what they seem. If you love historical fiction, romance, and adventure, don't miss Tracie Peterson's A Beauty Refined. When Phoebe meets Ian, everything changes. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie—a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.
