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?
This was my first read from Wilson and it was absolutely delightful. I couldn’t put this read down! It drew me in almost immediately and it didn’t let go. As I reached the last page I felt regret- regret that I had read it so fast, regret that the pages were over, regret that I became so invested in characters and couldn’t continue the journey. The suspense and romance kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book. There were twists and turns that were unexpected and delighting. It was well written and easy to follow. You’d be doing a great disservice if you didn’t read this book! I highly recommend it!
