Lord of the Far Island

This is by far the best of Victoria Holt’s I have read.

Lord of the Far Island by Victoria HoltIt’s hard to put it down because whoever showed interest in Ellen can also be the person who wanted to kill her. And you can’t really be sure who the bad guy is until almost the end of the book.

Since she wrote it in two separate parts, you are tricked into thinking one has little to do with the other, just like Ellen did.

On pattern I noticed is that the heroines in her books usually picks the seemingly bad dude. Still each bad dude was different enough, you won’t feel like she was just recycling characters.
