Summary

Thorne Manor has always been haunted...and it has always haunted Bronwyn Dale. As a young girl, Bronwyn could pass through a time slip in her great-aunt's house, where she visited William Thorne, a boy her own age, born two centuries earlier. After a family tragedy, the house was shuttered and Bronwyn was convinced that William existed only in her imagination.

Now, 20 years later Bronwyn inherits Thorne Manor. And when she returns, William is waiting. 

William Thorne is no longer the boy she remembers. He’s a difficult and tempestuous man, his own life marred by tragedy and a scandal that had him retreating to self-imposed exile in his beloved moors. He’s also none too pleased with Bronwyn for abandoning him all those years ago.

As their friendship rekindles and sparks into something more, Bronwyn must also deal with ghosts in the present version of the house. Soon she realizes they are linked to William and the secret scandal that drove him back to Thorne Manor. To build a future, Bronwyn must confront the past.

Beautiful tale

I loved this book. It was sweet with just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. The woman narrating the story really brought it to life and is now my favorite narrator.

✫✫ 3.75 Stars ✫✫

I'm going to have to go with 3.75 Stars for this one. This book was a very slow book for 75% of the story but then it got exciting and turned out to have a great ending. I liked how everything wraps up and that we get a happy ending. I have some questions about the time travel that didn't really work for me but all in all most of it made sense. The narration was good, in the beginning I struggled with the accents but I got used to them and was easily able to understand the few characters with the odd accent.

Another great read!

Loved this book! I expected a love story, the mystery was a bonus. I love the combined elements of mystery, love story and the supernatural elements of ghosts and time travel. I love Kelley Armstrong's books because they never disappoint and this is no exception. The narrator does a good job with voices and accents as well.

Even Better Than I Hoped!

I was given free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review: When I saw time-travel, ghost story, romance, and mystery all in one book by one of my favorite authors, I about jumped out of my chair. This was everything I wanted and more, and I finished it in one day, staying up way too late in the process. I only wish there could be more of this book. It's been ages since I've been so sucked into a novel, and I almost want to read it again straightaway. It was that good. Admittedly, I really came to this book for the Victorian, manor on the moors, romance with a brooding gentleman, but I ended up being just as hooked by the mystery and the way it unfolded. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, either losing myself in the romance or waiting to see what Bronwyn would discover next. More than once, I was also pretty spooked my the ghosts, but I'm admittedly pretty weak when it comes to horror. The romance was still very much the heart of the story, but the ghosts and the way they interacted with the romance added just enough suspense to keep the pages turning. Likewise, I absolutely adored both leads and the way their relationship felt so real despite being between a Victorian English lord and a modern Canadian history professor. Both were charming, interesting, realistic, and endearing, and I was absolutely smitten with them and their romance (and the realistic ways they had to manage being in different time periods). Narration was superb, and she handled accents incredibly well! I honestly forgot it was a woman voicing William more than once. I would recommend this to fans of romance, particularly historical romance, who want more depth and plot than you usually find in a bodice-ripper. It was perfect for the Halloween season without being too scary, and a truly immersive reading (listening) experience.

So good!

I absolutely loved this book. I read every Kelley Armstrong book that comes out and was surprised to see a different type of story then I'm used to reading by her, but it is well worth the read. Kelley keeps you on the edge of your seat and pulls you through the mystery as is per usual in any of her books, the time travel however was a very pleasant surprise. As someone who also has read and is obsessed with Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, it pulled me in all the more with this story. I love how I can never guess the ending or who the bad guy is, and this book as no different in that aspect. I think the only thing that had me a little disappointed was the ending, it seemed a little rushed and overly corny than I'm used to, but that may just be my own opinion. All in all amazing book! I highly recommend everyone to read this one.

A real getaway

This is a real mind escape of a book, perfect for the bleak 2020. It's a romance novel without the explicit sex scenes and with a ghostly mystery. While it's a bit silly I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn't put it down.

Not my typical read, but loved it.

Loved the book. This is not the typical book I would read, but I love Kelley Armstrong's other books and gave it a try.
