In the final book of this fast-paced series, both Charlotte Ransome and her sister-in-law, Julia, have been captured by pirates. When Captain William Ransome finds his sister, she offers unexpected aid in his search for his wife---her own captor, Salvadore. Why would the Robin Hood of the West Indies be willing to help rescue Julia?

Ransome’s Quest is Book 3 in the Ransome Trilogy. Charlotte Ransome is mistaken for her sister-in-law Julia Ransome, and kidnapped by a pirate, Captain El Salvador. Upon finding out that El Salvador was going to take Julia to protect her from another pirate, Shaw, bent on vengeance towards Julia’s father and husband, William Worthington, Charlotte joins in the fight to save Julia. As the story unfolds, more mysteries from everyone’s past begin to unfold, making for an exciting tale!

I found myself wishing I would have read the first two books in the series first. I had a hard time following all of the characters at times, but again, I think it was because I didn’t have the previous background knowledge. It did not, however, keep me from enjoying the book. It was full of adventure and mystery, but was wholesome and enjoyable. A great read!
