A Stranger in Wynnedower by Grace Greene, Book Review
Blurb from the book:
Love and suspense with a dash of Southern Gothic....
Rachel Sevier, a thirty-two year old inventory specialist, travels to Wynnedower Mansion in Virginia to find her brother who has stopped returning her calls. Instead, she finds Jack Wynne, the mansion’s bad-tempered owner. He isn’t happy to meet her. When her brother took off without notice, he left Jack in a lurch.
Jack has his own plans. He’s tired of being responsible for everyone and everything. He wants to shake those obligations, including the old mansion. The last thing he needs is another complication, but he allows Rachel to stay while she waits for her brother to return.
At Wynnedower, Rachel becomes curious about the house and its owner. If rumors are true, the means to save Wynnedower Mansion from demolition are hidden within its walls, but the other inhabitants of Wynnedower have agendas, too. Not only may Wynnedower’s treasure be stolen, but also the life of its arrogant master.
In letting go of what she has struggled to control and hold onto, will Rachel gain more than she could have dreamed? Or will she lose everything and everyone she cares about?
I loved this book! It is Beauty and the Beast meets mystery novel! The story slowly drew me in and then there were so many questions that needed answering, mysteries that needed solving. I kept coming back to the book, I NEEDED to know what the answers were! Were there ghosts in the mansion? Did someone take Rachel's brother against his will? Who is Jack really? Who can Rachel trust? Is there really treasure hidden in Wynnedower? You will fall in love with Rachel as she tries to answer all of these questions and more! Sit down and relax, because once you start reading this book, you won't be going anywhere for awhile! Five stars for a captivating read!
You can pick A Stranger in Wynnedower up via Amazon.
