Age Appropriate For: 13 and up for mild romance
Best for Ages: 13 -20

Imagine a Jane Austen book and an Errol Flynn pirate film got mashed together and you’ll have a good idea of what Hidden Pearls has in store for you. It has adventure, romance, a bunch of characters, lessons learned, and fun settings.

I’ve been wanting to read this book since it came out. I was excited to finally buy myself a copy and dive in. The cover is so pretty, even if it is just on my Kindle screen.

The beginning was a little hard, as there were an awful lot of characters introduced. I loved all the cousins, living together in a loving home. I have to say that my first sigh of satisfaction was the loving family aspect. I’m a little weary of bad families.

This story was full of adventure, plot twists, and cool characters. The mixture of regency England and sailing in the Caribbean was perfect. And did I mention the characters? They were a lot of fun.
The romance as sweet and not overdone. I mean, at the end of the book it feels like everyone is with someone, but at the same time, it wasn’t overly mushy. Handing this to a young person would not be a problem.

I highly recommend this story for those who like YA books, stories of adventure, and casts of fun characters.
