I’m a big fan of the author’s writing, especially the Sloane Monroe series, so it was great to read something different. The story starts when Addison Lockhart moves into the remote and dilapidated manor she’s inherited from her mother. Right away, you know there’s a dark secret to be uncovered.
Was someone murdered here long ago?
With the help of her architect and builder, Addison begins to piece together the mystery and the events surrounding the disappearance of movie star Roxanne Rafferty, who appears to be haunting the manor.
Addison is a likeable and resourceful character, driven by a need to unlock mysteries from her past and solve the disappearance of Roxanne. The tension builds slowly and steadily from the start. The danger increases as Addison digs deeper and finds her life and future in the manor threatened.
Then the revelation of an old family secret catches her off guard. Can she recover to solve the mystery and lay the ghosts to rest?
The story was well-written, engaging and kept me intrigued from start to finish. The paranormal element of Addison’s character was deftly and realistically handled without it taking over her investigation of the mystery.
I’m looking forward to discovering how her character develops in the next book in the series.
When Addison Lockhart inherits Grayson Manor after her mother’s untimely death, she unlocks a secret that’s been kept hidden for over fifty years.
For Addison, it seems like she’s finally found the house of her dreams, until the spirit of Roxanne Rafferty comes to call. Who is Roxanne, why is she haunting Grayson Manor, and how will Addison’s connection reveal a secret to her own past that she thought no longer existed?
