Well, I haven’t had a post about a book in a while, because the books I’ve been reading don’t release until June, so I’ve been scheduling my reviews of them out closer to the release date. But, I recently got another book in the mail from the Fiction Guild, so I thought I’d share it with you all today.
In the Shadow of Croft Towers is the debut novel by Abigail Wilson. This work of fiction combines murderers, smugglers, spies, secret messages, mistrust, and highwaymen in the setting of Regency England.
The summary reads:
Croft Towers holds more than its share of secrets . . . and Sybil is determined to uncover them all.
When Sybil Delafield’s coach to Croft Towers was robbed by highwaymen, she should have realized that her new position as companion to old Mrs. Chalcroft would be no ordinary job. Upon Sybil’s arrival, Mrs. Chalcroft sneaks into her room in the dark of night, imploring her to relay messages to town that are to stay hidden from the rest of the family. Who exactly is she working for and what do the messages contain?
When fellow passengers of the robbed coach are later murdered, Sybil’s hunt for the truth takes on a new urgency. The only person she can rely on is Mr. Sinclair, Mrs. Chalcroft’s godson, but under all his charms he too leads a double life. Sybil must decide if he is the one honest voice she can trust, or if he is simply using her for his own advances.
With murderers, smugglers, and spies on the loose, nothing—and no one—in Regency England is what they claim. Can Sybil even trust what she knows about herself?
Best selling authors Kristy Cambron and Shelley Shepard Gray both rave about it:
“Mysterious . . . Melodic . . . Thrilling and original . . . Abigail Wilson has crafted a debut that shines.” —Kristy Cambron, bestselling author of Castle on the Rise
“Abigail Wilson’s In the Shadow of Croft Tower is the kind of novel I love to recommend. Well written, thoroughly engrossing, and perfectly inspiring. I honestly couldn’t flip the pages fast enough.” —Shelley Shepard Gray, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
