Mist of Midnight

Mist of Midnight: A Novel (The Daughters of Hampshire) - Sandra Byrd

 

Was this woman the "real" Miss Ravenshaw or was the Miss Ravenshaw that was at Headbourne House a few weeks ago the "real" Miss Ravenshaw.

Rebecca Ravenshaw arrived with her chaperone from India after her parents were killed in an uprising and she was the only one in the family that had survived.  Miss Ravenshaw had no place to go but back to her family mansion in England.  When she arrived, everyone was shocked beyond belief.

How can this be Miss Ravenshaw when she committed suicide not more than a few weeks ago and is buried in the estate's cemetery. Is this Miss Ravenshaw the imposter or was the f​irst Miss Ravenshaw the imposter?  Was the first Miss Ravenshaw murdered for her inheritance?  Will the current Miss Ravenshaw have the same fate?

MIST OF MIDNIGHT has a hint of sinister to it.  None of the characters can be trusted especially her cousin Captain Luke Whitfield.  As the days go on, though, Rebecca falls in love with Luke and he seems to return the affection, but is he simply pretending to have affection for Rebecca?  Is he the one who killed the imposter so he could inherit the family mansion? Will he also murder Rebecca for the family mansion?

​We the readers will be taken into English society and attend balls and mingle with the English aristocrats as we try to figure out who is genuine, who is an imposter, and who is only out for money.​

MIST OF MIDNIGHT dragged a bit at the beginning, but the mystery and intrigue kept me going. As mist covers the estate grounds at night, it adds suspense, questions, jealousy, and finally love.  4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
