Publisher's Summary

From debut author Abigail Wilson comes a shadowy Regency tale of secrets and spies, love, and treachery. 

“Mysterious.... Melodic.... Thrilling and original.... Abigail Wilson has crafted a debut that shines.” (Kristy Cambron, best-selling author of Castle on the Rise)

Croft Towers holds more than its share of secrets...and Sybil is determined to uncover them all.

When Sybil Delafield’s coach to Croft Towers was robbed by highwaymen, she should have realized that her new position as companion to old Mrs. Chalcroft would be no ordinary job. Upon Sybil’s arrival, Mrs. Chalcroft sneaks into her room in the dark of night, imploring her to relay messages to town that are to stay hidden from the rest of the family. Who exactly is she working for and what do the messages contain? 

When fellow passengers of the robbed coach are later murdered, Sybil’s hunt for the truth takes on a new urgency. The only person she can rely on is Mr. Sinclair, Mrs. Chalcroft’s godson, but under all his charms he too leads a double life. Sybil must decide if he is the one honest voice she can trust, or if he is simply using her for his own advances. 

With murderers, smugglers, and spies on the loose, nothing - and no one - in Regency England is what they claim. Can Sybil even trust what she knows about herself?  

“Abigail Wilson's In the Shadow of Croft Tower is the kind of novel I love to recommend. Well written, thoroughly engrossing, and perfectly inspiring. I honestly couldn't flip the pages fast enough.” (New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Shelley Shepard Gray)

"In the Shadow of Croft Tower is beautifully written, suspenseful, and satisfyingly romantic. Abigail Wilson paints a beautiful picture of pastoral Regency England. This book will keep you riveted to the end, and you'll be rooting for the feisty heroine to get her happily ever after." (Jennifer Beckstrand, author of Home on Huckleberry Hill)

"Part mystery and part romance, Abigail Wilson's debut is an atmospheric period novel that will keep readers guessing to the very end." (Amanda Flower, USA Today best-selling author of Death and Daisies)

Loved it

I enjoyed every sentence of this story. It was quick witted and engrossing. The pace of the story was fast paced and believable. The characters were true to life and each had a depth of character that made them real. Loved so much I’m giving as a gift. I will be reading again.

Excellence

I was shocked to discover that this is Abigail Wilson‘s first book. It was an excellent read. At a time when I have a multitude of books on my currently reading list, this was one that I simply could not put down. The characters were interesting, the storyline was intriguing and mysterious, the Romance was enchanting yet clean. I will definitely be looking to read all of Ms. Wilson’s books in the future.

The narration was also incredible!
