Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres, and I also love a duel timeline story too, so this gorgeous book by Jenni Keer ticked many of my things I enjoy in a book list!
Some intriguing characters and an interesting story, I soon lost myself in this book, finding myself changing my opinion of the characters as I delved into their sometimes troubled history.
My ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review
Such a interesting and intriguing story, the surprises and twists kept me avidly reading along.
I enjoy duel timelines, and this one was no exception. There were many times when I gasped with surprise, or found myself changing my opinion on the characters! This book certainly kept me on my toes!
Without giving any spoilers away, I can say that I didn’t guess the outcome at all! I enjoyed watching Phoebe attempt to work out the riddles and find out her own history, linked to the Hall. It’s true, not all things are as the seem on first sight!
Cleverly written and with characters that you may find odious one moment, then likeable the next, it’s all in their backstories that unfold as you read.
