About the Book
A Beauty Refined (Bethany House, July 2016)
What does it take to reveal the true beauty of a hidden gem?
Phoebe Von Bergen, the daughter of a German count, is excited to visit America for the first time while her father purchases sapphires in Helena, Montana. Little does she know, however, that her father’s intentions—both for her and the gemstones—are not what she thinks.
Ian Harper, a lapidary working in Helena, finds the dignified young woman staying at the Broadwater Hotel more than a little intriguing. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie–a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.
Meeting Ian has changed everything for Phoebe, and she begins to consider staying in America, regardless of her father’s plans. But she may not be prepared for the unexpected danger that results when her family’s deception begins to unravel.

I just finished reading "A Beauty Refined" and I really liked the story. This was written by Tracie Peterson who has written many great stories. This is one that is about a girl named Phoebe Von Bergen who is in America. She is a German count's daughter. She thinks that she can trust her father but he has some secrets. Ian Harper has just met her and he does not want to see her hurt. He knows her father's secrets though and he is not sure what to do. Maybe they will start to think of each other as more than just friends. Should he tell her what he knows? I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group. These are all my opinions.
