"No Safe Harbor" by Elizabeth Ludwig

Harbors are supposed to be places of rest and safety. But in this story, Cara Hamilton can't seem to find one. She has grown up in Ireland but determines to leave when she discovers that the brother she thought was dead is really alive. He is living in America. Thus begins Cara's journey to find him; a journey that will take her to America and days filled with danger, deceit, and the unknown.

Cara thought Eoghan was dead, but then a letter came from America and Cara knew she needed to find him. How could he have kept this information from her? How could he have left her? Cara is determined to find him and the answers before he disappears again. She shouldn't really trust anyone, but then she meets Rourke and that flies out the window. Her days soon become filled with unanswered questions, tension, and secrecy. Danger is everywhere. Will Cara find her brother before something bad happens? Why did he run in the first place?  Is Rourke the man he seems to be? Step back in history and join Cara on her quest.

Ms. Ludwig had me from the beginning of this story. History fascinates me, and 1897 is the year she chose. Her depiction of the lives of her characters and their stories, drew me in and made me want to know more. I wanted to see the good, but found some unsavory things as well. That made it interesting! I recommend this book to readers who love suspense and intrigue. You won't be sorry you picked up this book! I received my free review copy from Litfuse Publishing in exchange for participation in the blog tour.

About No Safe Harbor
She came to America searching for her brother. Instead all she's found is a web of danger.
Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, clutching his letter, she leaves Ireland for America, desperate to find him. Her search leads her to a houseful of curious strangers, and one man who claims to be a friend-Rourke Walsh. Despite her brother's warning, Cara trusts Rourke, revealing her purpose in coming to New York.
She's then thrust into a world of subterfuge, veiled threats, and attempted murder, including political revolutionaries from the homeland out for revenge. Her questions guide her ever nearer to locating her brother-but they also bring her closer to destruction as those who want to kill him track her footsteps.
With her faith in tatters, all hope flees. Will her brother finally surface? Can he save Cara from the truth about Rourke... a man she's grown to love?
