FIVE STAR REVIEW:
This is one ARC that I would purchase 1000 times!
William and Isabella came to life in Garden of the Midnights by new-to-me author Hannah Linder. I initially grabbed the story because of the intriguing title. Most importantly, I am a fan of Christian suspense. I can’t recall the last time I read historical suspense.
My heart broke for what William endured at the hands of his aunt—a deplorable woman who, even on her death bed, couldn’t be gone soon enough. The other villain in the story showed his true colors throughout, and when he finally fully revealed himself as the monster that he was, I screamed at the eReader. This story twisted my emotions, and the sweet parts between William and Isabella truly showed how love should be. They made such good friends! The suspense built toward the climax, so I could hardly read the pages fast enough.
Thank you, NetGalley and the publisher, for giving me an ARC copy of this book to read and review. All of these thoughts and comments are my own.
She begged him once more to meet in the garden at midnight.
“If you love me,” said the letter.
But if he loved her, he would not come at all.
Enjoy another Gothic Style Regency from Hannah Linder.
The accidents are not a matter of chance. They are deliberate. As English gentleman William Kensley becomes aware of the danger at Rosenleigh Manor, he pleads for the truth of his past from the only man he can trust—until that man is murdered.
As the secrets unfold into scandal, William’s world is tipped into destitution, leaving him penniless and alone. His only comfort is in the constant friendship and love of Isabella Gresham. If he does not have their nonsense at the seashore, their laughter, their reckless adventures, has he anything at all?
He should have known that would be ripped from him too. When a hidden foe arises from their acquaintances and imperils Isabella’s life, William may be the only one willing to risk his life to rescue her. But even if he frees Isabella from her captors, will he still have to forsake her heart?
Some sacrifice everything for love. Others sacrifice love for everything else. In this haunting tale of rigid social prejudices and heart-aching regrets, the greatest decision of their life will be determined in the garden of the midnights.
