Overview

"Reading Left on a Doorstep by Beatrice H. Crew was like watching those romantic movies set in the 1800s, or for younger generations than mine, current popular series like Bridgerton." -Viga Boland for Readers' Favorite.

England, 1896. On the cusp of her twenty-first birthday ball, Victoria Montgomery, daughter of a well-to-do family, learns that she has more in common with the young unwed mothers she helps in her London charity than she wanted to believe when she learns she had been left as a baby on her parents' doorstep. Now a ruthless baby seller is stalking her to take revenge.

But when a handsome stranger named Allistair attends Victoria's ball to compel her to his family's island estate to be reunited with her ill birth father, Victoria soon discovers she has a history of people trying to kill her. Even her grandmother once attempted to throw her into the sea.

Victoria develops feelings for Allistair, a man she must trust to have her best interests, as he helps unravel the plot against her as well as the lace on her evening dress.

The next planned party is a masquerade ball if - Victoria can survive the event and remove the mask of her past.

About the Author

By the time Beatrice was eighteen, she practically lived at her local library. Her favorite genres were Romantic Suspense, Mystery, and Thrillers - particularly those set in England. After graduating from high school, she wrote pages and pages of a story that she was sure would soon be published and make her rich. Then life took her in a different direction, and her writing shifted from fiction to business books, where she won three national awards through the American Advertising Federation. Beatrice came across her manuscript last year, and the story called to her, saying NOW is the time. Trying to read her teenage pencil scratches on old notebook pages wasn't easy, but the story, Left on a Doorstep, was still in her. Beatrice also writes poetry, usually as a subject comes to her. As a positive person, most of the poems are uplifting and come from a place of compassion and deep emotion. Beatrice lives with her husband of 31 years, Milan Sergent, who is a multi-award-winning author.
