This is the type of book I most associate with Phyllis Whitney. I'm not going to say that it was pulse-pounding, but it definitely had suspenseful elements and a mystery. The romance was a bit of a stretch for me - I could have used some more development there.

Sea Jade - Phyllis A. Whitney. The storm had not yet broken when my train from New York stopped at the Scots Harbor station. As the conductor helped me to the platform, a gusty October wind whipped at my skirts and mantle. I clasped my portmanteau in one hand and stood looking about me-eagerly and without fear. My father’s warnings had touched me not at all and my mind was filled with a romantic dream that I fully expected to become reality.

I first read this book many years ago when I was a teenager. I recalled enjoying it very much then and on a second read, I was definitely not disappointed. Even though I remembered the general premise of the plot, I was surprised at how much of the story details I had forgotten. It was almost like reading it for the first time again. If i have any criticism of this story I would have to say that the main character, Miranda Heath, was much too forgiving of the way she was ill treated by the McLean family. Even for the 19th. century, I think she would have been more aggressive and told most of them off in no uncertain terms.

Truly a well thought out, and planned book! It kept me guessing all the way through. Sometimes I was even right.

It was ordered as a hardcover edition and when it arrived it was a poor quality paperback.

It took me a long time to get through this slim novel. At first, I wasn't terribly interested and it was easy to put down. By the time the book became more compelling, it was the holiday weekend and I didn't have much time to read. Sea Jade is the story of Miranda, who comes to Scots Harbor after her father dies because she is broke and needs someone to take care of her. In the beginning of the book, I wanted to smack Miranda for her naivete and her expectation that she would always be loved and taken care of. Unfortunately, only one person in the whole house wants her there. Everyone else looks at her like she's something they've scraped off their shoe. Turns out that nearly everyone has their own reason for disliking her and that at least one of them genuinely want her dead. So, that's awesome. The mystery of who and why is pretty much the rest of the book and the unraveling of old secrets and feuds. Even though this book was short, only 224 pages, the print was really, really tiny. That, plus the aforementioned issues, made reading this slow-going. However, by the end I was quite invested in the story and rather pleased by the ending. 3.5 stars.
As the carriage approached Bascomb's Point, Miranda Heath's gay spirit of adventure waivered under the combined onslaught of the raging storm and the shadowy outline of the gloomy, mysterious old house ahead. She shivered as she remembered her father's dying warning that the house was one of ill-omen.

But now Miranda was alone and without resources. Wasn't it natural that she should turn to the sea captain whose romantic, adventurous past was as much a part of her heritage as the legendary ship, the Sea Jade?

Miranda soon has cause to regret her impulsive visit, for she finds herself plunged into a loveless marriage with a dour, black-browed Scotsman. She will never submit - yet she must remain.

Everyone in the great house at Bascomb's Point seems to seek bitter revenge against her. Tight-lipped Sybil, her husband's autocratic mother, makes terrible accusations, while Obadiah's exotic wife, the Chinese woman Lien, moves mysteriously to obstruct her at every turn. Only Ian Pryott, himself a victim of Bascomb tyranny, offers sympathy and help. Fighting for her life and happiness, a desperate Miranda realizes that she will have to piece together the tragedy of the three sea captains if she is to solve her own nightmare. Miranda's moment of truth comes during a raging fire aboard an old whaling ship in a scene that climaxes the most compelling, exciting novel ever to come from the pen of the mistress of romantic suspense
