Publisher's Summary

The first book in the beloved Regency romance series, The Treasure of Surrey. 
“Regency romantic suspense at its page-turning best.” -- RT Book Reviews   
“It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.” 
Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid. Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession -- a ruby called the Bevoy -- can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop -- and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions.   
Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.   
“An engaging Regency with a richly detailed setting and an unpredictable suspenseful plot.” -- Library Journal   
“A delightful read, rich with period details.” -- Sarah M. Eden, best-selling author of For Elise

Many Faceted Historical Romance

A lovely story with fully developed characters, some danger, a mystery, and a very sweet romance.

Swept Along

I enjoyed the story line with a curiosity shop as the backdrop. I longed for more Spiritual meditations or conversations between the characters and God, the struggle of Faith in the midst of difficult circumstances. I liked the reader's ability to make the story real. However, I had difficulty keeping pace with her. I felt she read too fast, smoothly, but too quickly throughout the piece.

Couldn't get into this.

Would you try another book written by Sarah Ladd or narrated by Jude Mason?

I would try another and I might try this one again.

Has The Curiosity Keeper put you off other books in this genre?

No definitely not, maybe I need to listen to it at another time.
