Midnight on the River Grey ~ Review

Midnight on the River Grey
By Abigail Wilson

Rebecca Hunter is all alone but for her Aunt Jo and her guardian - Mr. Lewis Browning, the man she believes responsible for her brother’s death. When Mr. Browning decides that Rebecca and her aunt should tale up residence in Greybourne Hall, Rebecca is less than pleased at the prospect. This is the opportunity she’s been hoping for - a chance to investigate her guardian and learn the truth of her brother’s death. Was it an accident? Or was it murder?

Greybourne Hall is a place of secrets and Rebecca soon finds that Mr. Browning is viewed by the locals with a measure of distrust. And she has been duly warned by those she meets to not trust the cold, reclusive man.

Lewis Browning has suffered losses that have shaped him into the man Rebecca has met. Her brother and her cousin Ellen never had a kind word to pass on through their letters. But as Rebecca gets to know her guardian she is confused as to just who he is. Is he the "Midnight Devil" that he is referred to or is he the man that her late father looked on almost as a son? She needs to know who he is before she can determine the truth about his role in her brother's death.

This is another delightful offering from Abigail Wilson that readers will enjoy getting lost between the pages of. Mystery and romance blend together so that Regency fans won't be disappointed. And if you haven't read the author's previous work In the Shadow of Croft Towers you will want to after reading this one. Both books can be read as a standalone though there are characters who are in both books.


About the Book:
She knew the house was keeping secrets.
If only the darkness would speak...

After her brother’s mysterious death, Rebecca Hunter vows to expose the man she believes responsible: Mr. Lewis Browning—known by the locals as the Midnight Devil and by Rebecca as her new guardian.

Summoned to his reclusive country estate to await her London season, Rebecca plans her own secret investigation among the darkened corridors of the mysterious Greybourne Hall. Yet Lewis Browning is not as she once imagined, and his motivation is horribly unclear. Recurrent nightmares and Rebecca’s restless feelings are further complicated by the shadow of her mother’s prior descent into madness and wondering if she, too, will follow the same heartbreaking path.

Even as midnight rides, strange injuries, and further murders lead back to Mr. Browning, Rebecca can’t ignore the subtle turn of her heart. Has she fallen for the man she swore would pay for her brother’s death? And moreover, can she trust him with her uncertain future?
