1885.
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.

Present day.
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.

My Review:

Another wonderful daylight read by Jaime Jo Wright! Haha, okay I joke but truthfully yes, her books ARE safer read in the daylight hours. I love that even though the book itself kept me on my toes (and peeking behind my shoulder), I knew that the ending wouldn’t sway from Christian beliefs. I have read all of her releases so far and have come to trust her writing enough to know her boundaries as an author. That doesn’t mean I don’t get spooked as I read though… because as the stories unfold imaginations go wild.

Jaime Jo Wright is a master when it comes to the mystery in her books. The further I got into this one the more I was desperate for answers. No, I won’t spoil anything here, but we’ll just say the author’s ability to be unpredictable is unmatchable.

This was such a unique story with several twists and turns that had my curiosity tweaked. It was easy to pick up but not so easy to set down. The author has an incredible ability to write in such a way that you are sucked right into the heart of the story and the heads of the characters. Not only do you see what they see and smell what they smell, but you can also feel what they feel. It’s as if their stories become your stories. It felt as if my heart were stolen from my chest and not returned until after I’d closed the back cover. After I finished reading I handed the book off to a friend and she devoured it in just a few days herself. Another great read I highly, highly recommend!
