Catherine's Pursuit

by Lena Nelson Dooley
Realms Publishers

Raised by her father, Catherine McKenna has never lacked for anything, surrounded by people to take care of her every need. On her eighteenth birthday she discovers that not only did her mother die when she was born, but she also has two identical sisters. Although her father has vowed not to look for his daughters, Catherine has made no such promise. Setting out on her own with one clue and her maid in tow, she's determined to find her sisters. 

Collin Elliot has seen better days. After loosing his ship to a violent and unexpected  storm, he is trying to recover - physically and emotionally. When Angus McKenna sends him to find, follow, and protect his pampered  daughter, he wants nothing more than to finish his task and return home. Can he help her find her sisters? And will the discoveries they make along the way teach them both what's most important in life? 

My Review:

Feeling cheated out of two sister identical to herself, Catherine is determined to find her long lost sisters. Collin's perspective was a great source of amusement when it came to Catherine's enthusiastic search and courageous journey. For a somewhat spoiled rich girl, she is not afraid to show her high-spirited side, and Collin is not at all impressed with her behavior. But as it is a chance to prove himself to his generous employer (and Catherine's father) he doesn't have a whole lot of choice in the matter.  

I found the characters to be an interesting lot with plenty of personality and red hair to go around. Catherine's penchant to get into trouble and Collin's lack of amusement when he has to get her out of it, provided a few laughs and moments of merriment. It was a heart warming romance that had just the right mix of romance, and the historical setting was well researched by Dooley, lending authenticity to the novel.
