Review: A Beauty Refined by Tracie Peterson PLUS Blog Tour, Giveaway, and Facebook Party

A Beauty RefinedA Beauty Refined was a very interesting, enjoyable, and easy to read novel. I thought the author did a great job at creating a very complex backstory to weave these characters together. And my, oh my! What a cast of characters they were!

I really liked Phoebe right from the start. She had been very sheltered, however, when her eyes were opened to the truth and many terrible things were revealed to her, she showed her strength of character. I also liked the spiritual journey that the author took her on. Although Ian frustrated me a little bit at the beginning of the book, I soon warmed to him and enjoyed watching him grow closer to Phoebe.

A Beauty Refined contained a sweet romance, past hurts that were revealed, danger, and a villain so deceitful and mean that it was hard to watch as he took his vengeance out on all who opposed him!

A Beauty Refined is a good addition to the Sapphire Brides series, yet is also able to be read as a complete stand alone novel.

About the book:

A Beauty Refined
A Beauty Refined (Bethany House, July 2016)

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 her to 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.
