Ransome's Quest...Review

About the book:
This fast-paced, engaging end to the Ransome Trilogy follows a tale of love and danger on the Caribbean Sea in the early 1800s.

Captain William Ransome is searching for his sister, Charlotte, who has been captured by Salvadore, the infamous 'Robin Hood of the West Indies.' When word comes that his wife, Julia, has been kidnapped by the evil pirate, Shaw, Captain Ransome and his crew frantically search the horizon for the two women he loves. After Charlotte is found, she emerges with revelations about Salvadore's true identity and his willingness to help search for Julia. It's news that sends shockwaves through the family.

Will Captain Ransome trust Salvadore to help rescue his beloved wife? And what other secrets have been buried like long lost treasure in these waters? Romance, intrigue, and swashbuckling leaps of faith create a wonderfully heroic close to this beloved series.

Picking up where Ransome's Crossing left off, Charlotte Ransome and her sister-in-law have been kidnapped by pirates.  The men who love them, Captain Ned Cochrane and Commodore William Ransome must search the Caribbean.  Along the way they fight battles, uncover secrets and find more than one missing person.

Charlotte and Julia's personalities are just as strong here, as they are in the first two books.  Charlotte cannot resist adventure and her penchant for finding it hasn't waned.  A delightful, entertaining story and a fitting end to an entertaining trilogy.

  1. This sounds like a great book - I love pirate novels and I hadn't heard of this trilogy yet. I'm definitely going to add it to my "to-read" list!

  2. Have the first two in this series sitting on my shelf gathering dust - I really should read them and pick up this final book sometime, too.
