A Pursuit of Home | Book Review


In early 1800s England, Jess Beauchene has spent most of her life in hiding and always on the move in an effort to leave her past far behind her. But when she learns the family she thought had died just might be alive and in danger, she knows her secrets can only stay buried for so long.

Derek Thornbury loves the past, which has led him to become an expert in history and artifacts. He knows Jess has never liked him, but when she requests his help deciphering the clues laid out in an old family diary, he can't resist the urge to solve the puzzle.

As Jess and Derek race to find the hidden artifact before her family's enemies, they learn as much about each other as they do about the past. But can their search to uncover the truth and set history right lead to a future together?

Kristi Ann Hunter’s Haven Manor series is a Regency delight. The latest addition, A Pursuit of Home, proves to be everything I expected for Jess Beauchene (but of course, never would have guessed). It is a fitting conclusion to the series—with appearances from its many beloved characters (and even a few from the Hawthorne House series). 

When Jess needs help solving a family mystery, she knows only one person to ask for help: Derek Thornbury, an art expert—and a man she cannot stand. Still, he cannot resist the pull of historical intrigue she offers, and the mismatched pair begins an unlikely journey neither could have anticipated.

Together, Jess and Derek make a fun pair. She is fierce and impulsive, while he is steady and cerebral. They may seem like opposites (and exchange no shortage of witty jabs), but he sees her better than anyone else has, making the slowly growing romance feel so natural.

I wholly enjoyed A Pursuit of Home (and the rest of the series, too!). If you love Regency romance, do yourself a favor and take trip after trip to Haven Manor.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
