Secrets after Dark/Marie Higgins
"Residing at Thornton Manor under the premise of courting Jonathan Thornton,
Hannah Forester intends to find out who murdered her father and why. After
all, Jonathan’s brother Morgan was the last person to visit Peter Forester
before his demise. But upon her arrival at Thornton Manor, Hannah is
informed that Morgan perished the previous year in a house fire. She soon
learns the manor is full of secrets: a ghost haunting the East Wing, a white
wolf that roams the grounds by night, and the story of a curse-protected
treasure on the neighboring island. Most disturbingly, Hannah discovers that
numerous young women have visited the manor only to vanish without a trace.
When a hooded, deep-voiced man visits Hannah’s bedroom late at night,
warning her to leave the manor for her own safety, she realizes he must be
Morgan Thornton. But why does he hide in the East Wing, and why does his
family insist he is but a ghost? As Hannah falls in love with the handsome
older brother, she must continue to court Jonathan in order to remain at the
estate. Can she convince Morgan where her true loyalties lie? And will she
uncover the Thornton’s secrets quickly enough to solve her father’s murder
before she loses her own life?"
I decided since it is October I would post a fun and haunting book. I read this book about a year ago and enjoyed the mystery inside its pages. Things are just weird in the Thornton house hold and Hannah didn't pick the best time to come for a visit, But without her everything would remain a mystery and we cant have that!
Great characters and plot. Romance, Drama, and some Spookiness all wrapped up in one book. Keep a look out for more books from Marie, she has a variety of enthralling novels and I am always excited to see what she comes out with.
