Tracie Peterson in her new book “a beauty refined book coverA Beauty Refined” Book Two in the Sapphire Brides series published by Bethany House Publishers takes us into the lives of Phoebe Von Bergen and Ian Harper.

From the back cover:  What Does It Take to Reveal the True Beauty of a Hidden Gem?

Phoebe Von Bergen, the daughter of a German count, is excited to visit America for the first time while her father purchases sapphires in Helena, Montana. Little does she know, however, that her father’s intentions–both for her and the gemstones–are not what she thinks.

Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the dignified young woman staying at the Broadwater Hotel more than a little intriguing. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie–a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.

Meeting Ian has changed everything for Phoebe, and she begins to consider staying in America, regardless of her father’s plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger that results when her family’s deception begins to unravel.

Helena, Romance and Brides these are the ingredients for a wonderful read.  This time the focus is on Phoebe. She is an innocent just over from Germany. Ian, a lapidary who may be selling sapphires to Phoebe’s father, is a wise wonderful character but he has to put things together when it all begins to unravel for Phoebe a dark secret as well. There is a large amount of depth to keep you flipping pages. I recommend you start this book early as you are going to want to finish it before going to bed for the night. “A Beauty Refined” is a wonderful romance and the history of Helena is explored with some depth in this one. Ms. Peterson is an amazing writer and she has given us a great story with believable characters in Phoebe and Ian as well as the supporting players that we just fall in love with.  I recommend this book and look forward to the next one in this series.
