When you are brand new to a foreign country, it really helps to have someone who is there to help you find your way. For Cara Hamilton, a young single Irish lady, she finds that supporter in Rourke Walsh. But with her secret, is Rourke going to be the help or the problem? No Safe Harbor is a great mix of intrigue and mysterious backgrounds with just enough of a romantic plot-line to keep it interesting. The turn of the century was a time of great change in our country. This book captures the heart of how it must have felt to be all alone, wanting a new life in a new country, trying to find family connections and never knowing whom you can trust.

ABOUT THE BOOK
The Thrill of Romantic Suspense Meets the Romance of 1800s America
Lured by a handful of scribbled words across a faded letter, Cara Hamilton sets off from 1896 Ireland on a quest to find the brother she’d thought dead. Her search lands her in America, amidst a houseful of strangers and one man who claims to be a friend–Rourke Walsh.
Despite her brother’s warning, Cara decides to trust Rourke and reveals the truth about her purpose in America. But he is not who he claims to be, and as rumors begin to circulate about an underground group of dangerous revolutionaries, Cara’s desperation grows. Her questions lead her ever closer to her brother, but they also bring her closer to destruction as Rourke’s true intentions come to light.
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of the review from the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance.
