Beth White in her new book, “Magnolia Duchess book coverThe Magnolia Duchess” Book Three in the Gulf Coast Chronicles  series published by Revell introduces us to Fiona Lanier.

From the Back Cover:   As the War of 1812 rages across the newly formed United States, another war rages in Fiona Lanier’s heart–one that threatens to tear her family apart.

Fiona can scarcely take in the news of her brother’s capture and imprisonment by the British Navy. It is almost as unbelievable as the half-drowned British sailor who is washed ashore on the beach of Navy Cove.

Charlie Kincaid claims to have no memory of his life before being discovered by Fiona, but in a world that seems saturated with treachery, she cannot be sure he is telling the truth.

As Charlie’s memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political allegiances collide, they’ll each have to decide where their true loyalty lies.

I think this is historical fiction at its finest. It is 1814 and the planned British invasion of New Orleans is close to happening with Charlie working undercover as a spy trying to get information. Now he has amnesia and Fiona takes him in to nurse him back to health. This is Fiona’s story and we get to see Navy Cove and the surrounding area through her and her family. Get ready there is a lot going on in this book. I think, it is a true winner. Intrigue, mystery, danger, and double crosses, are all ingredients in this page turning adventure. Beth White has written a very exciting story full of interesting characters that we come to know and love as we read through the book.  Ms. White does a great job of making us feel that we are there and living the events rather than just reading about them.  I enjoyed this book and would really like to see them make this into a movie it is that good.
