The Secret Woman (Casablanca Classics) - Victoria Holt

There needs to be a "How do you feel about this" face that is "irritated."

 

Plot summary:

 

Anna Brett is a governess to a wealthy English family, a role she's convinced she'll be doomed to live the rest of her life. But when she meets Redvers Stretton, the dashing captain of a ship named The Secret Woman, and she's whisked from the bleak British coast to the sunny South Seas, she quickly realizes that things will never be the same. But with a murder dogging her steps and the mystery of a missing treasure haunting her dreams, Anna is forced to confront the clever captain-a man who may have just as many secrets as his ship.

 

 

I am at 35%, and so far, Anna Brett is not a governess, she met Redvers Stretton in the first chapter, and no one is being whisked away from anywhere. The plot summary is misleading, and something needs to happen soon. SOON. This book is on the road to nowhere.
