    Mystery of the Heart is full of mystery and suspense from the first page. It is an exciting read with interesting characters, family warmth, and a generous bit of romance. It seems to end rather abruptly, though the conclusion is satisfying. I would have liked there to have been more time and words spent on that portion of the story. Still, all in all, I really enjoyed it. I can see that the characters could have more adventures in their future. If the author chooses to write a fourth book, I would certainly look forward to reading a future installment.

    For the most part, this story centers around a spearhead, Lady Mercy Grayson and Lord Eden in England in the early 1800′s. The action begins on the very first page with Lady Grayson washing up on the ocean's shore scandalously dressed in men's clothing. Lord Eden comes to her rescue, although he must cut her hair as short as a boy's in the process.

    Lord Eden is in the midst of an adventure of his own involving an ancient spearhead. Legend has it that this is the actual spear the Roman soldier struck Jesus in the side with while he was on the cross. Stories have sprung up that whoever possesses the spearhead will receive healing. The legend continues claiming that whatever country it is in will be invincible. The heir apparent to the British throne wants the spearhead for the healing of his ailing father, and to see if it will give him power and make him unbeatable when he becomes king.

    As the story unfolds, Eden is put in precarious situations as people attempt to steal the spearhead. At the same time, Mercy goes against the pressure of her society for women not to have careers, by seeking training to become a medical doctor. She has learned the ancient art of acupuncture, and applies it often with positive results. Grayson and Mercy's lives intersect more and more often as the story goes on. The two of them, along with Mercy's family, get thrust into many dangerous predicaments and, at every turn, people appear that are out to hurt them.

    I liked all the different situations this book covered. But sometimes, the story moved too fast and was a bit confusing. Also, there were descriptions of character's sickness that were too detailed for me. But it was an exciting tale, and I felt like I had been on an enjoyable escape after I finished this novel. The author did a good job of drawing the reader into the story, and the time period it is set in.

    Mystery of the Heart is the third book in a series. This story can stand on its own, although there were a couple of references to an earlier story-line. Since this is Christian fiction, I was happy to find many Biblical references, and discussions by characters about their faith. I would recommend this five star book to readers who like a tale that goes along at a good clip, has some mystery, a bit of history and a dash of romance.

    The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through Booketeria and Realms Publishing, Charisma Media for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner.

    This review was written for Mystery of the Heart - eBook.
    Lord Eden is intrigued by Lady Mercy Grayson's secret, but how can he hope to gain her heart if he is forced to betray her?

    Lady Mercy Grayson longs to be a physician like her older brother, Lord Ravensmoore. However, society would never tolerate a female physician, let alone one who is a noblewoman. So Mercy takes matters into her own hands, disguising herself as a man to get through medical school. But when a colleague grows suspicious, Mercy is in danger of losing more than her dreams.

    Returning home from a secret voyage for the regent, Lord Eden agrees to give Mercy passage back to London. As their attraction to each other grows, they face circumstances, decisions, and treachery that could forever change the course of their lives.

    My Review:

    So this one was different. While a woman disguised as a man is not the most uncommon theme, Mercy wanting to be a doctor like her older brother certainly is! The undercurrent of this novel is meant to be, of course, the mystery genre, but some very interesting elements popped up that made it unique. Voodoo, magic, asylums, archaeology, and faith are explored; and I've got to say that this was a Regency era novel that kept surprising me page after page.

    The only thing I found rather hard to believe was the fact that she got away with disguising herself as a man for so long. I know the deception is not that difficult to pull off if it is done right, but I was not impressed by the implication of how ignorant it made all the people that "knew" her appear for their oblivion. All in all, this was a very enjoyable read that makes a nice addition to lovers of this time period.

    Jillian Kent in her new book, "Mystery Of The Heart" Book Three in The Ravensmoore Chronicles series published by Realms brings us into the life of Lady Mercy Grayson in 1819.

    From the back cover: Lord Eden is intrigued by Lady Mercy Grayson's secret, but how can he hope to gain her heart if he is forced to betray her?

    Lady Mercy Grayson longs to be a physician like her older brother, Lord Ravensmoore. However, society would never tolerate a female physician, let alone one who is a noblewoman. So Mercy takes matters into her own hands, disguising herself as a man to get through medical school. But when a colleague grows suspicious, Mercy is in danger of losing more than her dreams.

    Returning home from a secret voyage for the regent, Lord Eden agrees to give Mercy passage back to London. As their attraction to each other grows, they face circumstances, decisions, and treachery that could forever change the course of their lives.

    In 1819 women really didn't become doctors. The medical profession was a man's field and they did not take lightly women who encroached into their territory. Which is the reason why Mercy is thrown overboard. Lord Eden finds her washed up on the beach and, together, they board another ship with Mercy disguised as a boy. Lord Eden is looking for a relic that was stolen from him and both of them need to return to England. "Mystery of the Heart" is chock full of mystery, suspense action and adventure. My personal feeling is that this is Ms. Kent's best work yet. With everything else that is going on Ms. Kent also works in a really nice romance as well. I like the way Ms. Kent writes. She is an accomplished author who knows how to deliver true to life dialog and create characters that you fall in love with. The love story between Mercy and Lord Eden is a lot of fun and this book is filled with plenty of action to keep you turning the pages. "Mystery of the Heart" is an excellent read!
