Описание

Fleeing the attentions of the handsome and commanding Marquess of Darkefell, Lady Anne Addison arrives on the doorstep of a dear friend seeking nothing but rest and relaxation, but soon finds herself putting her investigative talents to work after a sighting of the Barbary Ghost. Always a skeptic of the supernatural, Lady Anne immediately suspects the apparition is nothing more than a diversionary tactic to conceal smugglers on the beach below her friend's house.

When the beguiling marquess follows her to Cornwall, Anne is distracted from her ghost hunt by his alluring kisses, until murder gets her attention. Forced once again to work with the marquess to uncover the truth behind a mystery, she soon discovers that her passionate attraction to him has not abated. Should she run from him again, or give in to temptation?

    I really enjoyed this book. After listening to the first book in the series, Lady Anne and the Howl in the Dark, I was pretty excited to get to this installment because I felt like Darkefell and Lady Anne had some unfinished business to deal with. Once I started listening, I was quickly taken with the new mystery in Lady Anne's life and couldn't wait to see how things would work out.After leaving Darkefell's home, Lady Anne goes to visit a friend for a while. She isn't there for long before she sees the Barbary Ghost and decides to figure out what is really going on. Lord Darkefell isn't ready to give up on Lady Anne and finds her in Cornwall and before long is helping her investigate everything that is happening. I found the mystery to be quite complex and liked the fact that I couldn't quite put all of the pieces together on my own. There were definitely a few surprises thrown into the mix.Lady Anne and Lord Darkefell make a great team. They really do work well together and they have a lot of chemistry. They are both great characters and I really want to see them work things out. Lord Darkefell is used to being in charge and can become too authoritative with Lady Anne. They both want each other but Lady Anne isn't sure that she wants marriage since it will mean giving up her freedom.I thought that Danielle Cohen did a fantastic job with the narration of this book. I seem to be enjoying this narrator more and more each time I listen to her work. I like the different voices that she uses and I think that she adds a lot of emotion into the reading of the story. I think she has a very pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for hours at a time and I think that the accent she uses works wonderfully with this series.I would recommend this series to others. This is the second book in the Lady Anne Addison Mysteries series which is best read in order if possible because of the ongoing character relationships. I cannot wait to get started on the next book in this series.I received a review copy of this audiobook from the narrator.

    The adventure continues!Lady Anne Addison's heartfelt confusion, her refusal of marriage to the enigmatic and attractive Marquess of Darkefell continues, peppered with the chasing down of smugglers and murderers in a crumbling manor atop the Cornish cliffs. A house with the perfect smuggler's bay at the foot of its cliffs.I'm agog at where Anne's indecision, or maybe yes her decisiveness, will take her.Anne flees Darkefell's attentions to join her dear friends Pamela and Marcus St. James, at their rented house on the Barbary Coast. An "effervescent brother and sister, [they have been] friends since Anne’s disastrous Season many years before." However there's another mystery brewing! And the endings all atremble with it!A ghostly figure rises up out of the mists just as smugglers are landing their goods and the excise men are surrounding the beach landing area. Anne is an unintentional witness to the action.Anne suspects the apparition has a clear scientific basis. She brings her investigative powers to bear, joined as it happens, by the Marquess of Darkefell who has pursued her to Cornwall.Murder, mystery and romance move hand in hand as Anne struggles with her feelings for Darkefell and her wish for independence, all the while investigating a murder that will once again harken back to Darkefell's past.This tale was originally published by Donna Lea Simpson. It has been updated and republished under Simpson's pseudonym, Victoria Hamilton.A Beyond the Page Publications ARC via NetGalley

    Despite a rather slow beginning, it picks up speed and becomes engrossing. The characters are interesting and engaging even when they act like twits! There's no difficulty in following the plot even if, like me, you haven't read the first book. The publisher's blurb is pretty good for setting the stage. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Beyond the Page Publishing via NetGalley.
