Book Review - :"The Bracelet"

Book Description from the publisher:

The mystery surrounding Celia's home in Savannah threatens her family reputation . . . and her very life.
Celia Browning is counting the days until her childhood sweetheart Sutton Mackay returns to Savannah after two years in Jamaica looking after his family's shipping interests. She's certain he will propose marriage, thus joining two of the city's most prominent families. But just as Sutton returns, an unsavory newspaper reporter arrives in town, determined to revive interest in the secret tragedies that occurred in the Browning mansion on Madison Square when Celia was a child.
A series of mysterious notes arrives at the house, followed by an anonymous gift-a bracelet imbued with a sinister message. Is it merely a coincidence, or is someone out to harm her?
As war clouds gather over Savannah and her beloved father's health worsens, Celia determines to uncover the truth about what really happened all those years ago.
Inspired by actual events in one of Savannah's most prominent 19th-century families,The Bracelet combines romance, rich historical detail, and breathtaking suspense as one young woman embarks upon a dangerous quest to free herself from her family's tragic past.

My Review:
I am a fan of Dorothy Love's books and as soon as I saw the cover of her latest novel, "The Bracelet," I knew I HAD to read this one as well!  And I was not disappointed!  This book is so well-written and it totally captivated me from the start!  "The Bracelet" is filled with tension, suspense, secrets and yes romance, and it will keep you thinking about it long after you finish.  I would love to finish Savannah, Georgia and I love how Dorothy brings this city to life in this book.  The story takes place pre-war and the city just sounds wonderful and also so intriguing.  Celia is a strong, and determined main character, but also a romantic and she is waiting for a proposal from the man of her dreams.  I really liked Celia and enjoyed reading about her.  I love that this book is based on a real family and real experiences.  I highly recommend this book for those whom enjoy historical fiction.
