Lynhurst Manor is a house built on secrets . . . and the arrival of Aurelie Harcourt might reveal them all.

When Aurelie Harcourt’s father dies suddenly, he leaves her just two things: his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll, and his wealthy family–who want very little to do with her.

As Aurelie struggles to find a home with her father’s family and learn the rules of society, she relishes in his parting gift–the beginning of his last story. The story she always wanted to hear, about her mother’s mysterious disappearance from the home where she now lives. To complete the novel, she’ll have to extract clues from relatives–and one enigmatic houseguest–who often seem reluctant to give them up.

My thoughts:

Wow. What a great debut novel. I was a fan of Jessica Dotta, another author, and this book really reminded me of her work.

From the beginning we are thrust into the world of Aurelie and her imagination. I found it very interesting to see things as she did, as a writer.

Things can be a bit confusing at time, but the author does a great job of feeding you little bites and making you want more and slowly things are revealed.

The whole book just had this mysterious feel to it that I adored. A great cast of characters and wonderful plot.
