Smuggling, Intrigue & Murder Across The Centuries
American Kate Hadley moves to her new home of Rookery Hall, on England’s idyllic Isle of Wight, intending to fight for the love of her husband Jack. But once given a box of two hundred year old letters, she realises that’s not her only battle. Kate begins to piece together the dark secrets of the island’s smuggling past, and its dangerous present. Just what is the real story of the Catherine de Lacy spoken of in the letters, and how is Jack involved? Can Kate prevent the jealousy, intrigue and murder of Rookery’s past from damaging herself and her family?
This is the first novel in the Rookery Mystery series.
An enticing mixture of contemporary relationship novel, thriller and historical story telling which I found to be compelling. It is easy to read but intelligently written and, importantly, not too easy to predict the outcome. I couldn’t put it down.
