About this ebook

Fans of the Lady Julia Grey Mysteries will love these Georgian historical mysteries.

 

Fleeing the attentions of the handsome and commanding Marquess of Darkefell, Lady Anne Addison arrives on the doorstep of a dear friend seeking nothing but rest and relaxation, but soon finds herself putting her investigative talents to work after a sighting of the Barbary Ghost. Always a skeptic of the supernatural, Lady Anne immediately suspects the apparition is nothing more than a diversionary tactic to conceal smugglers on the beach below her friend’s house.

 

When the beguiling marquess follows her to Cornwall, Anne is distracted from her ghost hunt by his alluring kisses, until murder gets her attention. Forced once again to work with the marquess to uncover the truth behind a mystery, she soon discovers that her passionate attraction to him has not abated. Should she run from him again, or give in to temptation?

 

This book was originally published under the name Donna Lea Simpson.

 

Praise for the Lady Anne Addison Mysteries:

 

“If you are looking for a historical mystery with romance, suspense, and a suggestion of paranormal, then read Lady Anne and the Howl in the Dark.” —Fallen Angel Reviews

 

“[Hamilton] excels at imbuing her realistic characters with subtle depths . . .” —American Library Association

 

“[The author] has set up a well-drawn Gothic horror setting here, so the atmosphere is fantastic, what with it being chilling, mysterious, and menacing all at once.” —Mrs. Giggles

Despite a rather slow beginning, it picks up speed and becomes engrossing. The characters are interesting and engaging even when they act like twits! There's no difficulty in following the plot even if, like me, you haven't read the first book. The publisher's blurb is pretty good for setting the stage. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Beyond the Page Publishing via NetGalley.
