An old unsolved murder mystery, a centuries old country manor and romance gives this book thumbs up for the reader.
A buried secret, a hidden agenda.
The isolated country manor where Robyn Valcourt spent her childhood was cold, imposing and shadowed by a decade-old murder. But her domineering grandmother had planned the estate's one hunfredth anniversary celebration, so despite her apprehension, she'd returned to Stoneview for the summer.
Yet from the moment Robyn arrived, a sinister atmosphere echoed the evil of the past. Someone didn't want the festivities to take place, didn't want the estate's secrets to see the light of day. Everyone was suspect. Everyone except Brian Keller, one of theinvited guests. He was kind and strong, and seemed the only person Robyn could rely on. But Brian was not who he pretended....
This mystery romance novel has a more modern feel to it. I enjoyed reading about the young heroin's struggle to realize her own life's dreams rather than live under her grandmother's dominating demands and expectations. There is some tension within the story involving a second antagonist that is very intriguing. It kept me reading to the end.
