Midsummer Night

Belmont Abbey is overflowing with guests awaiting Lady Julia and Nicolas Brisbane’s wedding day. Combine the close-knit chaos of village life, pagan traditions bursting through staid Victorian conventions, and the congenial madness of Lady Julia’s family, and you get an unforgettable wedding. What could go wrong? But add in a dangerous past nemesis who has come to wish them not-so-well, and their day to remember just might take a fatal turn…

When the source of the mystery is revealed, they’ll be faced with an impossible choice—one that will alter the course of their lives forever.

Nicholas Brisbane has inherited a country house—but only if he and his family are in residence from All Hallows’ Eve through Bonfire Night.
