When Anne's mother agrees to marry a wealthy, mysterious man, she expects a nice mansion in the hills. But their new home, Belrose Abbey, is more like a castle - imposing, cold, and full of shadows. The more Anne explores the corridors and vacant rooms and dusty crannies, the more she discovers about the abbey's master - her soon-to-be stepfather - Ivan Helsburg. As her mother's wedding draws closer, Anne begins to harbor a creeping suspicion that all is not well at Belrose Abbey.

It has a very dark but had all the ingredients for a gothic romance novel. There were some untied ends so I will have to wait for the next one in this series. Good narration.

Beginning of an Interesting Series
This looks like the beginning of a series I will enjoy following. When I realized it was YA, I expected it to be a little young for me, but I was happy to learn that it held my interest. The characters were young but engaging and the mystery kept me coming back. My suspicions switched back and forth and I was uncertain right up to the end - just the way I like it. Michelle Babb did her usual excellent job of bringing the characters to life so that I could always tell immediately which character was speaking. I am happy that I was offered this book free in exchange for an honest review and I can honestly say that I enjoyed listening to it and will watch for the second book in the series.
