Hush - A Lakeview Novel by Stacey R. Campbell

Hush - A Lakeview Novel (Book 1)Hush - A Lakeview Novel by Stacey R. Campbell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"For small-town girl Blakely Henry, any hope of finding her biological parents died when she stopped believing in fairy tales and Disney princesses. That is, until she spots her boarding school’s new British exchange student, Max Ryder, staring at her. Why would a boy who looks like he stepped out of the pages of a magazine be looking at her? Because Max knows something Blakely doesn’t. 
Following the tragic demise of one of Europe’s most beloved royal families, Max has stumbled upon information he thinks may lead to a lost royal heir, and now he is on a quest halfway around the world to see if he’s right. 
Sworn to secrecy by his university professor and the headmaster of Lakeview Academy, Max is admitted into an exchange program with the sole purpose of finding out the truth. But will his personal feelings for Blakely get in the way? 
When a stolen email surfaces, Blakely and her friends’ lives are threatened, and Max starts to question what he is really after.
From the exclusive rolling lawns of Canada’s most prestigious boarding school to the University of Saint Andrews’ hallowed grounds, Blakely’s quiet, unassuming life is turned upside down. Is she really who she thinks she is? Can she survive long enough to help Max unearth the truth?"

*I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in return for a honest review*

Hush was a gripping read, it had all the bases covered, mystery, action, romance. I really loved this book. The main character Blakely was a likeable character. The story flowed well even being told the story from 3 different countries didn't confuse the reader. I would recommend this to people and not just Young Adult readers, it was a unusual story. Very enjoyable.
