You can't hide from the past.
Queen's world was shattered, and she was banished to a foreign land. Years pass before she dares to return, but what she finds is of little comfort. Greed and dishonesty have festered and grown in her absence. Embittered and cynical, Queen trusts few people.
Owen pursues a clandestine investigation and finds himself working side-by-side with a veritable ghost, an agent few have seen, a master of disguise known simply as Queen. He craves her trust...but then uncovers a secret from his family's past that could destroy her.
Queen once sought refuge in America and now seeks it in disguise. Owen has always found his refuge in God, but will his faith be strong enough for the challenges ahead? Can he convince her to stop hiding, or is he doomed to become her most hated enemy?

Mystery, Intrigue, lords, spies, traitors are part of this exciting novel set in the early 1800's in England. This book is a page turner. I had a hard time putting it down. Each of the books in this series get better and better. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. One of the themes in this story is the power of forgiveness. I love the Spiritual thread running through this. I don't want to give away any spoilers so will not tell the story, but is worth reading this book.
Finding forgiveness and love in an old friend This is the third book in the Regency Refuge Series. Each book including His Saving Grace and Jackal, are solid enough and with detailed information to read as a standalone but to fully grasp these wonderfully spun tales, I would recommend reading all three in order. The book has so many elements, mystery, suspense, espionage, betrayal, loyalty, forgiveness, redemption and love. Queen had to become a strong woman very early in life after her parents are arrested, tried and executed, after being accused of betraying the Crown. Twelve years old and put into service by the war department in the Queen's court. Her life and virtue both at risk. Owen Loring had an uncanny sense with numbers, ledgers and documents. He had known he wanted to be of service to his government. Together, Owen and Queen are placed in numerous situations of cat and mouse, not knowing for sure of whom they could trust and who foe. This story keeps the pages turning, the intrigue and mystery never get boring. It is a constant state of trying to figure out who done it, who is the guilty parties, why the deceit and how to survive while being of service to the Crown. We met other characters from previous books, who play key roles in this story too. The story also shares that forgiveness and love can be found.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This was both my first book from this author and the first book in the series. I'm not sure if I would have gained anything by reading the other two first or not so I'm solely going on my impression of this particular story. This book was a definite change from what I had been reading previously. The intrigue was pretty apparent from the beginning, if you love a good espionage story you'll probably enjoy this one. Set in 1800s England, the story is a definitely one to keep you waiting to see when all the secrets are revealed. I think my favorite part of the story was the fact that both the hero and the heroine are strong characters. This doesn't change from beginning to end. Strong themes of faith and forgiveness bolster the love story that blooms even among the suspenseful page turner.
