Book By: Abigail Wilson
A secret society outlawed decades ago. A woman gone missing. A family who isn’t all they appear to be. The Vanishing at Loxby Manor is a chilling read – make sure your lights are on for this one.
Charity Halliwell has returned to England after being whisked away by her parents five years prior. Instead of heading to America with her family to visit her older brother, Charity begs to return to the home she left. Her wish is granted. If only she’d gone with her family…
I won’t spoil the story and give more detail than that.
The easy narrative pulls the reader in to a time and place where legends were created and brought to life. Loxby Manor and the people who reside in it are hiding secrets. Is no one to be trusted? Charity is pulled into intrigue and has a personal stake with the woman who disappears the very night Charity arrives. The novel is spent searching for the woman, questioning those who last saw her and chasing leads that brings her nowhere.
There are twists and turns that the reader may not easily predict, which makes this a delightful experience. There are enough clues sprinkled throughout the pages to help readers draw their own conclusions and then quickly squashed as Charity uncovers the truth.
If you enjoy regency romance with a whole lot of intrigue (and don’t mind murder), you’ll enjoy this read.
