Book Review: No Safe Harbor

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?

My Opinion
I really like No Safe Harbor for the fact that it was a historical fiction and romance! I absolutely love reading a romance where I also learn some history of our country!

This book was set in the 1800's when the vast majority of Irish were coming over to America. I love how Elizabeth Ludwig includes historical highlights like Ellis Island, the Irish "mobs" in New York City, the burning of Ellis Island and the jobs and setting of New York in the 1800's. She wrapped all of the great historical facts into an easy to read, fun, romantic, and interesting book: No Safe Harbor!

I loved the storyline and I just didn't want to put this book down until I found out what happened between Cara and Rourke and Cara and her long lost brother. This is the first book in a series and I can't wait to see what happens in the next books!
