What is this book about?
Adria Fontaine has been sent to recover goods her father pirated on the Great Lakes during the war. But when she arrives at Foxglove Manor–a stone house on a cliff overlooking Lake Superior–Adria senses wickedness hovering over the property. The mistress of Foxglove is an eccentric and seemingly cruel old woman who has filled her house with dangerous secrets, ones that may cost Adria her life.
Kailey Gibson is a new nurse’s aide at a senior home in a renovated old stone manor. Kidnapped as a child, she has nothing but locked-up memories of secrets and death, overshadowed by the chilling promise from her abductors that they would return. When the residents of Foxglove start sharing stories of whispers in the night, hidden treasure, and a love willing to kill, it becomes clear this home is far from a haven. She’ll have to risk it all to banish the past’s demons, including her own.
Deeply chilling and suspenseful yet ending in hope. This story was complex both in plot and characters. For most of the book I felt as if I needed to have all of my lights on in the house to ward off the evil surrounding both Adria and Kailey.
This author has a wonderful way of taking two seemingly different stories from two different eras and weaving them together meticulously to intertwine them in a solid message. It was a page turner.
I really loved that in the midst of all the suspense, mystery, and darkness that Kailey and Adria faced, romance still managed to develop and bloom. Like looking at a picture of a single colorful flower in a black and white forest.
The best thing for me was that after all the page turning suspense, and solving the mystery around Foxglove Manor, there was not only resolution for both women, but hope. I truly felt hopeful when I turned the last page. Wonderfully crafted story.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
It was all so good, but my favorite part of the book was Axel and how he treated Kailey and Jude.
What I didn’t like about this book:
At the beginning, it took a few chapters to secure me into the story. There was a lot of mystery that I had to digest while I got to know all the players.
Would I recommend this book to others? Definitely. This author is a master at mystery, suspense, and weaving past and present storylines together. This is a standalone story.
Note: I received this book complimentary from the publisher through NetGalley. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are honest and my own.
