‘A Beauty Refined’ Blog Tour, Giveaway, and Facebook Party

 Tracie Peterson has released her second book in the Sapphire Brides series, A Beauty Refined. This story is not only one of love, but of mystery, greed and faith.  So take some time to read below and find out about this newest series from a great author.  And make sure to put the facebook party on your calendar and enter the giveaway!

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 to her 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.

My Review:
 Tracie Peterson has written a compelling story that will hold your interest and have you racing to the end to find out what happens to the Bergen family.  I enjoyed reading this story and loved the fact that she includes a little mysterious surprise in the story line.  This book was an easy read for me and I finished it quite quickly.  This would be a fun read for a weekend.  The only comment I will make that is negative is that the father does have some immoral habits and because of that I would caution again teens reading this book.  Nothing is stated implicitly, but it is implied and plants a seed of thought I wouldn't want my young daughter reading.  I did appreciate all the references in this book to Scripture and the truth of salvation through Jesus alone.  It's great to see that in a book! Overall, it was a great, fun read.
