    I enjoyed this story. It felt vaguely familiar to me as I started reading it and realized I had seen the movie on Lifetime a couple of years ago but had not read the book. I liked the book better.

    A curiously dated child’s suitcase arrives, unannounced and unexplained, in a modern-day Washington suburb. A week later, American genealogist Jefferson Tayte is sitting in an English hotel room, staring at the wrong end of a loaded gun. In his latest journey into the past, Tayte lands in wartime Leicestershire, England. The genealogist had hoped simply to reunite his client with the birth mother she had never met, having no idea she had been adopted.

    Story

    This book was a breath of fresh air for me. The author and the narrator are a new experience, too. It's a different kind of mystery; a nice change from the usual murder story. I enjoyed watching the main character use research to resolve the problem. I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series.

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see how dedicated some people can be to family. The entire story was centered around family secrets and the lengths people will go to, to keep their family secrets. I'd recommend the book.

    Arriving in London on leave, Bess Crawford receives an unusual summons from the War Office. She's been requested to accompany a wounded soldier to Buckingham Palace, where he's to be decorated for gallantry. Though she is certain she's never met or nursed Sergeant Jason Wilkins, she cannot refuse the honor. Heavily bandaged and confined to a wheelchair, the soldier will be in her care for barely a day. But on the morning after the ceremony when Bess goes to collect her charge for his return journey, she finds the room empty.

    The Harris List of Covent Garden Ladies, that wickedly witty annual register of the city's light-skirts, was once a grand London tradition. Now, as all of Europe is celebrating the end of the long wars, the scheming Lord Marstoke has revived it - and transformed it into a weapon to be used against his runaway fiancée and the old enemy who helped her escape.

    It was very annoying to try to hear this book. No matter what listening device I tried, the sound was foggy. I even re-downloaded it thinking perhaps there was a problem when I downloaded it initially but nothing worked. Purchase it at your own listening peril.

    Empress Elizabeth of Austria, known as "Sisi", is the Princess Diana of 19th-century Europe. Famously beautiful, as captured in a portrait with diamond stars in her hair, she is unfulfilled in her marriage to the older Emperor Franz Joseph. Sisi has spent years evading the stifling formality of royal life on her private train or yacht or, whenever she can, on the back of a horse. Captain Bay Middleton is dashing, young, and the finest horseman in England. He is also impoverished, with no hope of buying the horse needed to win the Grand National....

    As I was reading this book I constantly related it to Princess Diana, not realizing that there was in fact a Sisi in history. Surprising how their lives compared. The author did a good job holding my attention.

    Story

    I liked this book. I continued to look forward to finding out "what happened" as I read through it. I don't know if anyone else noticed that the narrator pronounces the word "grimace" with a long "a". It really rubbed me the wrong way. It seemed that the word must have appeared at least 50 times in the book and I noticed each of the 50 times that she mispronounced it. And it wasn't because she's British because other British narrators pronounce it with a short "a". I tolerated the book anyway because of the good story.
