I won this in a giveaway.
I received a copy of this as a first reads! Thank you for that. I enjoy books that mix past and present. I did feel though that as a reader I wasn't being transported back to the 1920's. It seemed a bit sparse on description! Other than that I was interested in finding out what secrets lurked in Loxley Hall.I will look forward to this author's second novel.
