The Tutor's Daughter - A Review

I have loved all of Julie Klassen's books and this is no exception!  I don't read many regency romance books, but I can't resist Klassen's books.  They are always engaging from the very beginning and keep you reading way past the time you should have put it down!

The Tutor's Daughter is a centered around Emma Smallwood.  Emma is trying to help her father rebound back after her mother passed away and the school that has been his life has experienced a declining enrollment. They reach out to a former family that had send their older boys to the academy, but had yet to send their younger boys.  To Emma's surprise the Weston family invites them to live at Cornwall estate and tutor the younger boys in residence.  A change would be good for both of them and Emma is excited to see the one brother that was her friend and slightly dreads seeing the one who used to torture her, the only girl at the school.  Upon arriving at Cornwall the Smallwoods are strangely welcomed, the family is obviously hiding something. Then Emma notices odd things at night and things missing from her room. 

What will become of the former friendships?  What is going on in Cornwall?  What are they hiding?

This is a great book.  It touches on some different and tough subjects that were unexpected.  I highly recommend this book.

Thanks to NetGalley for my advance copy of this book.
