The Captive Imposter - The Everstone Chronicles Book Three - Dawn Crandall

Hiding her true identity may be the key for Estella Everstone to discover who she truly is. 

My Rating
★★★★★ - You have bewitched me, body and soul. (More Info)


From the back of the Book
Sent away for protection, hotel heiress Estella Everstone finds herself living undercover as a lady’s companion named Elle Stoneburner at one of her father’s opulent hotels in the mountains of Maine—the one she'd always loved best and always hoped to own one day, Everston. The one thing she doesn't like about the situation is that her ex-fiancé is in the area and is set on marrying someone else. Reeling from her feelings of being unwanted and unworthy, Estella reluctantly forms a friendship with the gruff manager of Everston, Dexter Blakeley, who seems to have something against wealthy young socialites with too much money, although they are just the kind of people Everston caters to. 



When Estella finds herself in need of help, Dexter comes to the rescue with an offer she can't refuse. She sees no other choice aside from going back home to her family and accepts the position as companion to his sister. Throughout her interactions with Dexter, she can't deny the pull that's evidenced between them every time he comes near. Estella realizes that while she's been hiding behind a false name and identity, she’s never been freer to be herself than when she's with Dexter Blakeley. But will he still love her when he finds out she's Estella Everstone? She's not entirely sure.


My Thoughts
This series has become one of my favorites! Each book is better than the last and I still have ONE more!!! So excited to see where the story takes me next. Estella's story is my favorite...so far. The Captive Imposter is such beautiful story of true identity. Loving a person based solely on who they are as person. Not their name, who their family is, what their background is, but rather what is in their heart. (Rabbit Trail: Although Ezra is the name of the bad guy...Also my son's name...**Sad face**) It is also a good reminder that God can turn any situation around for good. As Estella leaves the Everstone name behind and transforms into a person with no fortune, no family, no name that anyone knows, she has the opportunity to discover the person underneath. Written in first person we can see into the depths of Estella's heart. There were several intense moments when I longed to know what was going through Dexter's mind, but it just adds to the suspense. I adore Dexter's sister, Roxy! I have a feeling we would be the best of friends. Baths and tea...yes please! I strongly recommend reading the series in order because there is a storyline that crosses over, and you will appreciate the characters more. Overall, another wonderful installment to The Everstone Chronicles and a beautiful story created by Dawn Crandall.

I received a free copy of The Captive Imposter from the author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
