Ever. Read!!!! Get it, and read it!!!! Ok, now before I get too carried away, let me get on with the review, or we may never arrive there. ;)

Main Charcters: Emma Smallwood, Mr. Smallwood, Henry Weston, Phillip Weston, Julian Weston, Rowan Weston, Lady Weston, Sir Giles Weston, _________ (sorry, i might ruin the whole story if I share this character's name!), Lizzie, and Aunt Jane
What I think about this book: I have clearly stated that this is a very well written book that has you hanging by the threads!
Book Description: Emma Smallwood, determened to help her widowed father whaen his boarding school fails, accompanies him to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But soon after they arrive and begun teaching the two younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte at night, only to find the music rooom empty? And who begins sneaking into her bedchamber, leaving behind strange mementoes? The baronet's older sons, Phillip and Henry Weston, wrestle with problems--and secrets--of their own. They both remember the studious Miss Smallwood from their days at her father's academy. But now one of the finds himself unsexpectedly drawn to her... When suspicious acts escalate, can Emma figure out which brother to blame and which to trust with her heart? Filled with page-turning suspense The Tutor's Daughter takes readers to the windswept Cornwall coast--a place infamous for shipwrecks and superstitions--where danger lurks, faith is tested and romance awaits.

This is a book I highly recommend! :) I would like to thank Britt for holding the book giveaway over at Shining Bright Critique Group {Click the button on the sidebar) for holding the giveaway! ;) I found my new favorite book and I can't wait to read the other one.
