    The story is told in first person and has a gothic feel to it thanks to the large estate and crumbling mansion. The heroine is determined to find justice, and the hero is misunderstood and appealing. A great combination of characters, plot, and setting. I was immediately sucked into th...

    This new-to-me author swept me away with this wonderful suspense novel that reminded me a lot of Victoria Holt's Gothic suspense. Rebecca Hunter's mother has died, and her father is already dead. Lewis Browning has been appointed her guardian, and she will be moving to Greybourne Ha...

    This book grabs you and keeps you in its finely-tuned world. Equal parts romance and mystery, Wilson excels at characterization and intricate setting. While clearly at home alongside perennial favourites such as Julie Klassen, Mimi Matthews and Sarah Ladd, Wilson's voice is distinctive...

    Why Do Christians Love Books about Sin and Sorrow? Midnight on the River Grey should read like one of Shakespeare?s tragedies. Sin, sorrow, secrets combine into a plot that I absolutely couldn?t put down. To avoid TMI, I?ll just say that I didn?t put it down? even when perha...

    I very much enjoyed author Wilson's debut novel and I was quite excited to be able to read Midnight on the River Grey. This was a dark, gothic novel that was very hard to put down due to the many secrets, a few murder mysteries, a heroin who may or may not be going mad, and a gentleman...

    Satisfying historical mystery novel! Rebecca Hunter is determined not to marry because of her mother's mental illness. She is also determined to find out who murdered her brother. She is a spunky main character that doesn't like being told what to do, especially by Lewis Browning. ...
