Blog Tour - Betrayed Review and Giveaway


About the book: 1851: Niagara Falls, New York

The evidence has been well hidden—the Thayers were confident that it was safe from the clutches of the ruthless Murphy Gang. But is has all been in vain. The lawless group is closing in on the family homestead, and seven-year-old Penny is given only one instruction: Run.
After two long years eagerly anticipating her fiance's return, twenty-year-old Julia Barrett is ready to make a fresh start with Adam Wolcott—even if it means putting her dream of traveling west with the Mormons on hold. But when Adam's return is overshadowed by the unexpected arrival of a young orphan girl in desperate need of help, Julia is drawn into a dangerous mystery that will threaten all she holds dear.

Charged with the protection of little Penny, Julia quickly finds herself relying on the help of Tom Harrison, an endearing young man who has long admired her from afar. Torn between two suitors, Julia soon uncovers a shocking trail of corruption and deceit—a discovery that pulls her inescapably into the race to locate telling evidence that Penny's family gave their lives to protect.

My review: Penny and her family are happily living their lives, when one night their home is invaded. Penny's mother sends her to the woods to hide and the rest of the family is killed, leaving Penny alone in the world, being hunted by some of the very people that should protect her. Meanwhile, Julia has been waiting for her fiance, Adam, to return for two long years, but when he does things feel a bit off for her. It doesn't help that Tom Harrison has arrived in town bringing word of Julia's brother Jame's death. Julia has dreamed of a young girl that she must protect and when Penny arrives at their home she knows that she is the girl. But just who does she need protection from? 

I really enjoyed reading this book. I enjoyed Julia, she is kind of conflicted through the book, she knows that she has intended to marry Adam, but then there's Tom Harrison. Not to mention that her parents are going to be headed West with the Mormon Church and she knows that Adam won't be. I also liked that she and Penny both had dreams about things and those dreams proved to be prophetic, even though they were a woman and a child respectively. I felt really sad for Penny, her whole family murdered, and knowing that the killers are coming for her next. Julia's family was great too, but I had to admit that I didn't trust Adam, it kind of seemed as though he was trying to take Julia away from her family the whole book. I was really not expecting the ending and just who was after Penny and her family, wow, that took me by surprise! This book is full of suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat until you've read the very last word.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
