Lies of Gold by Jan Selbourne

Award: Coffee Pot Book Club Book of the Year, Silver Medal – Historical Romance, 2019.

Their love affair ended in anger and painful consequences. Lady Katherine Ashford has guarded a secret through years of abuse. Fighting wars and hard living has numbed Julian Ashford. Then fate steps in. A traitor is smuggling gold across the Channel to Napoleon Bonaparte and Julian is ordered back to Halton Hall and Katherine.

It’s her secret and the increasing danger that rekindle the love they once shared, then a murder reveals the shocking truth of the gold smuggling. However, nothing could prepare them for the devastating betrayal when they finally face the mastermind behind this sordid operation.

Review by Red Headed Book Lover, Book Reviewer: Lies of Gold is a multi-layered novel full of many intriguing themes such as lost love, crime, and mystery. These three themes combined make Lies of Gold a sensational story for me as these are themes, I love to read about. What makes these themes so brilliant is that the exceptional author of this novel, Jan Selbourne, perfectly weaves them together into her plot so that the reader is entertained from beginning to end. Jan Selbourne is a talented wordsmith; her brilliant story combined with her flawless narration amazed me and had me turning the pages with haste. Her sensational book is flawless and makes for a brisk, steady read that is full of twists and turns galore. I adore her plot device of twists and turns as they kept me intrigued and ensured that I never once got bored. As Lies of Gold is a truly spectacular novel full of action-packed moments, brilliant intrigue and historical context, I have no choice but to award this stellar book a dazzling Five Stars! It is a truly exceptional novel and it would be a crime not to read it.

Review by Viga Boland, Author /Book Reviewer, No Tears for my Father:  What an incredible book of historical fiction! It’s not just the romantic story of lovers who parted on bad terms and find each other again that captures the heart of anyone who has known true love. It’s not just a plot so intricate and gripping that just when you think all the twists and turns have been negotiated, you find still more curves ahead. It’s not just the mixture of evil and sinister characters, the nastiness of human trafficking in 19th century England, along with deception and murder that keeps you turning pages in a book impossible to put down. It’s all of those elements, delivered by a skilled author who fires the imagination, and whose knowledge of the craft of writing turns her book into art. . . . Jan Selbourne doesn’t t take second place to any author when it comes to her ability to write an unforgettable story. There are a lot of characters in LIES OF GOLD. In so many books, and too often, readers lose track of who’s who and who’s doing what when writers cannot handle the large casts they have created. Such is not the case with Jan Selbourne. We not only are able to keep up with everything and everybody, but we come to know all the key characters inside out. Selbourne allows their actions and words to reveal who they really are and what they are like. Too few writers have that skill even after penning many books. This is only Jan Selbourne s second novel! Readers feel the intensity of the passion between the protagonists, Julian and Katherine, as they try to deny the love, they feel for each other. Their lovemaking scenes are detailed and sensuous, rather than blatantly sexual. Likewise, the reader feels the growing love Julian feels for Katherine s children and they for him. And along with the protagonists, we feel their revulsion toward Katherine s abusive ex and the many ugly inhabitants that surround them at Halton Hall. Readers are swept up in this historical fiction that rivets with the tension of a psychological thriller and brings everything to a most satisfying, if surprising conclusion.

Review by Gail Beardslee: The characters are rich and varied in their contribution to the storyline. It is the history and the historical settings that grab my interest and propels me along in time and space of the period.

The Woman Behind The Mirror by Jan Selbourne

Marry in haste, repent at leisure is the last thing on Sarah Forsythe’s mind when she and the son of a local minister elope to the American colonies. She wasn’t to know abandonment, misery, poverty and shame would follow.

As the colonies rebel against British rule and the siege of Boston worsens, alone and afraid, Sarah hides her desperation behind a hard shell. To survive, she is forced to steal from the safe of her employer. Instead of the cash she needs, she finds Bank of England documents. Sensing they might have some value; Sarah protects them through months of deprivation until she finally secures passage home to England. Unknown to her, two men are following, intent on claiming those documents. At any price.

Bank of England fraud investigator Neil McAllister faces the biggest challenge of his career when a woman from Boston demands a reward for returning lost documents to the bank. Then two men with the same name and nearly identical stories arrive in England, each claiming ownership of them. Who is lying? Or are all three accomplices in a plot to swindle the bank?

As the obstinate, secretive woman gets under Neil’s skin, he trusts that she was an unwitting witness to the crime of cold-blooded betrayal and treason before the fall of Boston. Now it’s up to Neil to protect Sarah because the traitor wants her dead.
