The mystery surrounding Celia's home in Savannah threatens her family reputation . . . and her very life. Celia Browning is counting the days until her childhood sweetheart Sutton Mackay returns to Savannah after two years in Jamaica looking after his family's shipping interests. She's certain he will propose marriage, thus joining two of the city's most prominent families.

Publisher's Description

"There are no secrets that time does not reveal." 

Savannah, Georgia – 1858

Celia Browning dreams of the day when her childhood sweetheart Sutton Mackay comes home to Savannah after two years in Jamaica managing his family's shipping interests. Sutton has all but proposed, and their marriage will unite two of the city's most prominent families. But just as Sutton returns, a newspaper reporter arrives in town, determined to pry into twin tragedies that took place at the Browning mansion on Madison Square when Celia was a child.

While the journalist pursues his story, someone is trying to frighten Celia. When she receives a series of anonymous notes, and a bracelet imbued with a chilling message, Celia realizes that her family’s past has the power to destroy her future.

As the clouds of war gather over Savannah, and her beloved father’s health worsens, Celia determines to uncover the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

Inspired by actual events in one of Savannah’s most prominent 19th-century families, The Bracelet is the story of a young southern woman whose dreams fracture under the weight of her family’s tragic past.

    How should I start this? I feel like I start every review with the same sentence. I must say that The Bracelet was very intriguing. I thought the storyline was very good but as you can tell by the two-and-a-half-star rating, it had some flaws. I felt like the author put too much content in the book. As a result of this, the book lacked a realistic feel. For example, I would be reading it and something exciting was about to happen. After the suspense of I wonder what is going to happen next?! I would turn the page and come to a chapter, all of the sudden that problem didnt exist anymore. Dorothy Love would write a quick sentence about what happened and everything went back to happy days, which brings me to my next point. Some parts in this book were boring. And like I said if something exciting did occur then the situation was resolved very quickly. I know you are probably tired of my rambling but one more point. For this point, I am going to quote from the book,



    Men are such idealistic dreamers, Mrs. Mackay said. They dwell too much upon the glories of war without counting the cost. (heres my point) Sometimes I think the country would be better off if woman were in charge. We look at things with a more practical eye.



    Now I dont really know what the authors intentions were with that quote but Ill will leave it up to you to decide. I know I am making this book sound like its terrible, but I did enjoy some parts of it. As I said the storyline was very good, but this book just wasnt for me.



    Hope you can make sense of all my rambling!

    This was another great book by an author I enjoy. Dorothy Love has a beautiful way with words, and she uses that gift to make history come alive.

    This story is set in pre-civil war Savannah, where the reputation of a prominent family is rocked by a curious newspaper reporter. Motherless Celia Browning is very protective of her father's fragile health and his status in the community, and these concerns, as well as her plans of marriage to a childhood sweetheart, are suddenly all at risk. Rumors swirl about things that no one in the household will discuss, and she finds herself increasingly isolated from her peers. Celia becomes an amateur detective, unaware that her real enemy is someone living under her own roof. A bracelet with a hidden threat, a choice of death by gun or poison - suddenly social ostracism doesn't look so awful!

    This book had one too many dramas for my taste (I would have thought Sutton had learned his lesson about leaving Celia alone after that incident at the picnic!). But the story wraps up in a satisfying way with several good confessions, and a new appreciation of life in the Old South. The only thing I'd change about this book is its title - The Bracelet is very catchy and memorable, but it doesn't really epitomize the book for me. Maybe, The Diary, or The Deceiver. But as always, any read by Dorothy Love is time well spent. Her books have a special place in my collection.

    The Browning family has kept unimaginable secrets for years; and just when Celia Browning dares to think that her dreams for marriage to shipping magnate Sutton Mackay are coming true, a nefarious reporter begins to write unpleasant half-truths about her extended family in the local Savannah, Georgia newspaper. Set in the deep South, illustrating the turbulent years just prior to the Civil War, "The Bracelet" has fascinating history embedded within a certain amount of intrigue and suspense; however, the characters and conversations fell a little short of engaging; thus, the three-star rating.

    This novel has one of the most powerful prologues I've ever read. I spent the rest of the story wondering and trying to piece together the mystery - and was surprised more than once at the end. The hero and heroine's delightful repartee balances the weightier issues of slavery, war, and miscegenation.

    This was my first novel from Dorothy Love and I would say her writing in 'The Bracelet' is solid and concise, but not exactly spectacular or memorable. . . There is certainly suspense, romance, and secrets intertwined throughout the chapters, but unfortunately it was rather simple to figure out the plot and who was sending the anonymous messages to Celia - I had it figured out before I was halfway through the book. And I was rather disappointed to see that the character involved in the threats seemed to get away with it even when it came down to a matter of life or death.

    Celia, the main female character, is not the type I typically relate to and unfortunately I didn't find a connection with her. She is indeed kind and caring and dotes upon her father, but I also found her to be spoiled, too perfect, and something else, something I can't quite put my finger on. . .

    Sutton, the main male character, is certainly a kind gentleman with a big heart for Celia, but once again I did not connect with his character. These are minor issues, but connecting with the characters is a big deal for me and if I can't find some common ground with the characters than the story falls short.

    The southern history was fascinating and I applaud Dorothy Love for doing a wonderful job of portraying Savannah, Georgia during 1858. There is much talk of a war {the Civil War} taking place among the homes in Savannah and I found the thoughts about the war to be quite interesting and from a good view point.

    All-in-all there was a little bit of excitement throughout the book, but most of the time the story and characters fell flat. I have read many books over the years, books that still stand out in my mind because they were unforgettable, but 'The Bracelet' is, sad to say, forgettable.

    ** I was given a complimentary copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers for an honest review. All thoughts are my own and no other compensation was received. **
