Product Description

Still grieving the loss of her husband, Morwenna Penvenan fills her days preserving her son's heritage: the dilapidated estate his father left them. But all attempts at restoration are thwarted when she is accused of deliberately causing ships to crash on her shore in order to steal their cargo. While seeking clues to the true culprits, she finds an unconscious man wearing a medallion with the Penvenan crest enameled upon it.

Upon learning of his father's death, David pursues answers to the many questions left in his father's wake: Why was his father in Cornwall when he said he would be in Scotland? Why did he die in possession of a medallion belonging to a prominent Cornwall family? Why did his father take money from the family's ship-building business? And why did someone kill him? Only after waking up at the Penvenan estate under Morwenna's care do the pieces start falling together.

Publisher's Description

As a grieving young widow, Morwenna only wants a quiet life for herself and her son. Until a man washes ashore, entangling her in a web of mystery that could threaten all she holds dear.

Lady Morwenna Trelawny Penvenan indulged in her fair share of dalliances in her youth, but now that she's the widowed mother to the heir of the Penvenan title, she's desperate to polish her reputation. When she's accused of deliberately luring ships to crash on the rocks to steal the cargo, Morwenna begins an investigation to uncover the real culprits and stumbles across an unconscious man lying in the sea's foam—a man wearing a medallion with the Trelawny crest around his neck.

The medallion is a mystery to David Chastain, a boat builder from Somerset. All David knows is that his father was found dead in Cornwall with the medallion in his possession after lying and stealing his family's money. And he knows the widow who rescued him is impossibly beautiful—and likely the siren who caused the shipwreck in the first place—as well as the hand behind whoever is trying to murder David.

As Morwenna nurses David back to health and tries to learn how he landed on her beach, suspicion and pride keep their growing attraction at bay. But can they join together to save Morwenna's name and estate and David’s life? Can they acknowledge the love they are both trying to deny?

Author Bio

"Eakes has a charming way of making her novels come to life without being over the top," writes Romantic Times of  bestselling, award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes. Since she lay in bed as a child telling herself stories, she has fulfilled her dream of becoming a published author, with a degree in English and French from Asbury University and a master’s degree in writing fiction from Seton Hill University contributing to her career path. Now she has nearly two dozen books in print. 

After enough moves in the past five years to make U-Haul’s stock rise, she now lives in Houston, Texas, where she and her husband are newly minted church leaders. Although they haven’t been blessed with children—yet—they have sundry lovable dogs and cats. If the carpet is relatively free of animal fur, then she is either frustrated with the current manuscript, or brainstorming another—the only two times she genuinely enjoys housekeeping.

Editorial Reviews

“While the romance between Morwenna and David is captivating, Eakes makes a point of focusing on family in the continuing saga of the Trelawney clan.” –4 star review

    In A Strangers Secret the rugged coast of Cornwall is the perfect backdrop for a story filled with mystery and intrigue. Between the dire deeds of the local wreckers, a mysterious stranger, and multiple attempts on his life, this novel held my attention and wouldnt let go.

    The second novel in Eakes Cliffs of Cornwall series, A Strangers Secret features Morwenna, a young widow who played a minor role in the first novel of the series. Determined to preserve her young sons heritage by preserving her late husbands estate, Morwenna refuses to accept help from her grandparents, who she fears will try to control her and her son. When she rescues a nearly dead stranger in the aftermath of a shipwreck on her estate, Morwenna finds herself pulled into a deadly mystery and learns that her life is linked to the life of the stranger in more ways than one.

    With well-rounded characters, a perfectly Gothic mood, and a plot with many twists and surprises, A Strangers Secret was the kind of novel I love to read. Morwennas regrets over her past actions and determination to be a good mother were admirable but unforgiveness toward her grandparents and her absent parents prevented her true happiness. The transformation of her attitude was gratifying to watch unfold and I loved how her grandparents turned out to treat her much different than she expected.

    All in all, A Strangers Secret was a very satisfying novel and I look forward to more books by this author.

    Another book by an author I've never read before...

    Andeven though it's the second book in the series, I was not at all lost.

    In fact, I was so caught up in the story, that I never even stopped to think about what I might be missing in the back-story.

    However, I will be going back to check out the first story... and probably reading this one again just after.

    It's a powerful story, an intriguing mystery...

    This is certainly an author I will be watching.

    And I hope you'll give the book a chance. I'm certain you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

    Lady Morwenna Trelawny Penvenan indulged in her fair share of dalliances in her youth, but now that she's the widowed mother to the heir of the Penvenan title, she's desperate to polish her reputation. When she's accused of deliberately luring ships to crash on the rocks to steal the cargo, Morwenna begins an investigation to uncover the real culprits and stumbles across an unconscious man lying in the sea's foama man wearing a medallion with the Trelawny crest around his neck.

    The medallion is a mystery to David Chastain, a boat builder from Somerset. All David knows is that his father was found dead in Cornwall with the medallion in his possession after lying and stealing his family's money. And he knows the widow who rescued him is impossibly beautifuland likely the siren who caused the shipwreck in the first placeas well as the hand behind whoever is trying to murder David.

    As Morwenna nurses David back to health and tries to learn how he landed on her beach, suspicion and pride keep their growing attraction at bay. But can they join together to save Morwenna's name and estate and Davids life? Can they acknowledge the love they are both trying to deny?

    The story line was good and I did enjoy the book. A few things I found to be a little repetitive. We were always being told how poor Morwenna was and all she had to do was marry someone of her grandparents choosing and her dowry would be released. Of course they had a couple of men picked out for her. Forget that she didnt love either one of them. I realize in that day and age women didnt have much say in who they married. David was always being referred to as being of an inferior class to Morwenna. There was some mystery to the book but not as much as I had anticipated from reading the description by the publisher.

    This was the second book in the Cliffs of Cornwall series. I did not read the first book in the series and I feel it might have made this book a little easier to understand. There were references to people that made me think their stories were told in the previous book. I enjoyed reading about the history of the area. I really wanted to give this book five stars but I couldnt. I found the book to be slow in several places. Therefore, I can only give this book three stars.

    I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

    Loved this book! I thought the description of the book sounded intriguing and it truly was. From page 1, the characters come alive and the story jumps through the words of the story and right into your heart. I loved the mystery, the history and the characters. I thought each piece of the story came together in a way that created the perfect blend of forgiveness, faith, family, trust and love.

    This is a book to grab with some hot tea and read from beginning to end!
