Guardian of Paradise by W.E. Lawrence *Review*

* I received a copy of this book for my honest review*





In 1888, Kira Wall, surviving daughter of missionaries swept away in a tsunami, lives a primitive, but enjoyable life with natives on an isolated island in the South Pacific. But her serene world is turned upside down when an Australian merchant ship, commanded by the sinister Captain Darcy Coleman, arrives with an overabundance of modern and lavish goods. Kira suspects ill intent. Chief Ariki refuses to listen to Kira’s warning, forcing her to uncover the real plan of the captain on her own. Unfortunately, she has a distraction. A six-foot tall, blond, and handsome distraction. Trevor Marshall, doctor and botanist, hopes to find exotic plants on the island to research new cures and medicines. He is dedicated to science, but when meeting the strong-willed, beautiful Kira Wall, he’d prefer to spend time researching her—all night.

The captain thwarts Kira’s attempts to call him out at every step, turning the village chief against her. With only Trevor and her best friend Malana by her side, she stalks the captain and his officers through the dense, predator infested jungle, toward the island’s inactive volcano. Frustrated by her failure to reveal the captain’s true intentions, Kira begins to think maybe she’s wrong about everything. Then an explosion and earthquake bigger than anyone on the island has ever seen renews her resolve. Was the blast natural or man-made? She is determined to prove it was the captain’s doing. Kira races against time and the island people’s naivety to stop the captain from destroying her home and killing everyone she loves.



MY THOUGHTS


This is a historical romance and I am a sucker for historical romance books.

This book is set in the late 1800's on a beautiful island and it sounded good. I decided to start it on a cold and rainy day and boy am I glad I did. I was so hooked on this story that I read way more than I had planned in one sitting.
I could so very well imagine everything in my mind and I did feel like I was transported onto the island.

Bravo W.E. Lawrance on such a fantastic book.

I highly recommend this.

I give Guardian of Paradise  by W.E. Lawrence  5 out of 5 stars.

If you would like to purchase this book, it is available at amazon.com, amazon.ca and amazon UK.
