Waiting on Wednesday ~ The Secrets of Hartwood Hall by Katie Lumsden


A big big happy welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday!!

So far a good week! We are currently looking at puppies, got a very cute beagle we may want to go for! Yep, we decided that shelters are just not working.. so I guess we are going to have to spend much more, but we have saved a bit for it, so we will be fine! I also baked some new cookies (butter cookies) which are just DIVINE! Tomorrow I am going to visit Library #1, so look forward to a haul coming on Friday/Saturday.

Back to the book I picked for this week! I picked The Secrets of Hartwood Hall by Katie Lumsden! A gothic mystery with plenty of spooky things. Strange figures in the dark, gossip, an east wing that is apparently abandoned (oohhhh I wonder what happened there and what secrets lie there), and it just sounds so interesting and fun and spooky as well. Plus, I adore adore the cover. I am curious about the relationship, will it work out? Plus, I NEED to know what Margaret’s history is, given that is 1852 maybe something not that scary, women could do so many things wrong in that time, but I am still curious.

Now it is waiting for the end of March, pray a bit, and hope that Amazon has it in stock at a decent price~

The Secrets of Hartwood Hall  Katie Lumsden, Gothic, Adult, Red, Silhouette, Letter, Historical Fiction, Spooky, MysteryA gripping and atmospheric debut that is at once a chilling gothic mystery and a love letter to Victorian fiction.

Nobody ever goes to Hartwood Hall. Folks say it’s cursed…

It’s 1852 and Margaret Lennox, a young widow, attempts to escape the shadows of her past by taking a position as governess to an only child, Louis, at an isolated country house in the west of England.

But Margaret soon starts to feel that something isn’t quite right. There are strange figures in the dark, tensions between servants, and an abandoned east wing. Even stranger is the local gossip surrounding Mrs. Eversham, Louis’s widowed mother, who is deeply distrusted in the village.

Lonely and unsure whom to trust, Margaret finds distraction in a forbidden relationship with the gardener, Paul. But as Margaret’s history threatens to catch up with her, it isn’t long before she learns the truth behind the secrets of Hartwood Hall.
