A story of crushes, corsets, and conspiracy
Libby Kelting had always felt herself born out of time. No wonder the historical romance-reading, Jane Austen-adaptation-watching, all-around history nerd jumped at the chance to intern at Camden Harbor, Maine’s Oldest Living History Museum. But at Camden Harbor Libby’s just plain out of place, no matter how cute she looks in a corset. Her cat-loving coworker wants her dead, the too-smart-for-his-own-good local reporter keeps pushing her buttons, her gorgeous sailor may be more shipwreck than dreamboat — plus Camden Harbor’s haunted. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, Libby learns that boys, like ghosts, aren’t always what they seem.
I received a free copy of this book for review . Thank you , Stephanie !
I liked this book ! It’s perfect for beach or for a hot summer day . The main character , Libby Kelting , a history-romance nerd have has the opportunity to spend the summer working of Candem Harbor , the Museum of Mainte and the Sea and yeah, for Libby it`s like a dream come true . But to linving in a history museum isn`t how Libby imagined to be. First , she has to share the room with Ashling , a difficult cat lover who plays Susannah Fennyweather ( probably the worst person from 1791 ever! ) and Suze a very shy girl. Second , it`s obliged to wear all those ridiculous outfits and to guide a group of little girls in magic of history. But things were more complicated than that. Cam , a local sailor , one of Squaddies fall in love with Libby ( or so he wanted to look ) and Libby imagined him a protagonist in her historical romance novels. And there’s Garret ,too , sc-fi nerd , a local newspaper reporter and talented ghost hunter. He came to Camdem Harbor to write an article about the mysterious ghost of a capitan who haunts a ship called Little Mae. You can also add than Libby`s best friend , Dev , desperatly call her to tell her that a huge fashion company wants to kill him. Imagine all of this set in the 1800s and you have a wonderful portrait of this book.
Again, this book was so much fun! I don`t know how long time before i laughed so much at a book , but this one was brilliant! Libby move with Garret on ship and they each other find that they are very different than they imagined at first that they were. Garret descover a smart and pretty Libby who love history. Libby descover a very kind Garret who really care about her. If you want to know about the mysterious ghost or who owns Libby ‘s heart , please buy the book. You will not regret a single moment !
