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 Thoughts

If you have never read a Jaime Jo Wright book I honestly don't know what you are waiting for!! One book is all it took and I was hooked!! I mean if you like suspense/mystery novels with romance woven in and a dual timeline then you will totally love her books! I was SO excited to be part of her Influencer Team.. I may have had a total fangirl moment and squealed when I received the welcome email and the book! Here's the thing with her books you need to set some uninterrupted time aside because you are going to want to read it in one sitting oh and most of them you don't want to read in the dark, this one is one of them!

In this story we have two different timelines that intertwine beautifully. We meet Adria from the past timeline and Kailey from the present. Both women have gone through some traumatic experiences and are surrounded by secrets that lead to this manor house that is secluded and tucked away in the cliffs overlooking Lake Michigan. These two women, though centuries apart, are trying to solve the secrets surrounding the house and its inhabitants. I am not going to ruin the story or give anything away but let's just say that there is plenty of suspense, mystery and even a ghost?! 

Oh, and let us not forget the leading men in this story!! The romance was totally there in a slow burn type that just keeps you reading and wanting to know more and how it will develop. The chemistry on the characters was done just right and the kisses!! SWOONY for sure!! The rest of the supporting characters were perfection especially Kailey's older brother who happens to be autistic. I thought that was a great addition to the story and written so well that he takes a place in your heart. 

Overall I absolutely enjoyed the story and had me engaged the entire time. Jaime Jo Wright has such a way of weaving two storylines and making everything just click together. Nothing that she adds to the setting, characters or plot is by chance it all goes together to make one amazing story! Seriously go out and grab this book now!!

My Rating: 5 Stars/ LOVED IT!!
