No Safe Harbor Book Review

Edge of Freedom Series
Book One

SUMMARY:  New York City, 1897
     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, desparate 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's she's grown to love?

REVIEW:  This was a good book but a little hard to follow at times.  Sometimes trying to keep track of all the characters, their relationship to each other and how they were involved with Cara's brother Eoghan was difficult at times.  I liked how Cara was determined to find her brother in New York City even though she had no idea how to even locate him to keep who she was a secret even though it was really difficult.  I also love the boarding house she lives in and all the ladies she rooms with.  They support her and she's there for them when times are rough.  This is a good book and I am eager to read the next one in the series.
