Review

By BookWorm - I loved this book! It is Beauty and the Beast meets mystery novel! The story slowly drew me in and then there were so many questions that needed answering, mysteries that needed solving. I kept coming back to the book, I NEEDED to know what the answers were! Sit down and relax, because once you start reading this book, you won't be going anywhere for awhile! Five stars for a captivating read!

I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest review.

The book was a quick read. It was mystery but you sort of knew what was going to happen in the future. Grace Greene is a good writer. There was no vulgarity or grusomeness in the book which made it enjoyable reading. The ending did surprise me! I am looking forward to reading the other books written by Ms. Greene.

I didn't want this book to end! I wanted to stay at Wynnedower and continue to be a part of Rachel and Jack's lives!

This story completely hooked me from the beginning when Rachel is staring at "the monstrous stone house," Wynnedower, after following her brother's directions to "drive until the trees crowd in close and the road looks like it's about to end, then keep driving."

Wynnedower is a rambling, rundown old mansion with locked doors, forbidden rooms, mysterious people who come and go, and a sexy, enigmatic owner who advises Rachel to, "Lock the door and keep it locked. If you hear noises in the night, ignore them."

The story has the gothic allure of a Daphne du Maurier novel but with twenty-first century characters. Rachel is a modern heroine, a strong, complex woman who can take care of herself. Jack is inscrutable but a real person, and the attraction between the two of them is powerful and compelling. The description of that attraction is subtle and understated...and completely believable. I felt Rachel's emotions, her growing attraction to a man she doesn't completely understand and doesn't always like, felt those emotions and her happiness, confusion, pain...

I won't give away any of the secrets...and there are plenty of them...but suffice to say, once you start reading this book, you won't be able to put it down.

I picked this book based on other reviews, and I am glad I did! This is a refreshingly modern gothic, complete with a strange old house, a missing relative, a handsome yet mysterious homeowner, a creepy housekeeper and strange people popping up. Oh, and the rumor of a hidden treasure.

This book stars a likeable , tough-enough but nice heroine who I could not help rooting for. She cares, yet she has a spine, unlike some of the "classic" gothic heroines who seem to let everyone walk on them. Her story is well told, and she comes across as a real person. I liked her, I respected her strength, and her weaknesses too. The supporting cast is also good, and suitably mysterious. I also enjoyed the clean romance; I am not a prude but after years of romance reading, steamy love scenes are rather tiresome, not to mention repetitive. This book has a few kisses, and a good romantic story.

When all the mysteries are solved, I thought "that was fun, enjoyable, and worth the read."

This author writes well, including readable and believable descriptions of physical and emotional settings. I am looking forward to checking out her other books.

There are just a few errors in editing, making reading it a pleasure.

I loved this book! It is Beauty and the Beast meets mystery novel! The story slowly drew me in and then there were so many questions that needed answering, mysteries that needed solving. I kept coming back to the book, I NEEDED to know what the answers were! Were there ghosts in the mansion? Did someone take Rachel's brother against his will? Who is Jack really? Who can Rachel trust? Is there really treasure hidden in Wynnedower? You will fall in love with Rachel as she tries to answer all of these questions and more! Sit down and relax, because once you start reading this book, you won't be going anywhere for awhile! Five stars for a captivating read!

Format: Paperback
When I started this book I thought it was going to be along the lines and in the time of Jane Eyre. Well it does have a great feel toward Jane Eyre and Beauty and the Beast in a way (which I LOVED), but the time is in the present. This is not a fault, but still I was surprised. As I started getting into the story I got so excited I didn't want to put it down! I love Grace's play on words and descriptions of every scene. I did feel that some of the transitions where a little sporadic, but that added to the story in it's own way also. And the only other fault I have with this book is that I, personally, wanted a little more Faith writing. More prayers, a little scripture, etc. These are the only faults I have with the book over all it is FABULOUS!!! Shocking to the end, and I do mean the VERY end! I loved the characters, the setting, the surprises, and the plot! Filled with secrets, mystery, and a hidden treasure A Stranger in Wynnedower is a great adventure and a great read!!! :)

My songs for this book are: "Karaoke - Hallelujah" by Karaoke - Rufus Wainwright, "Long Shot" by Kelly Clarkson, and "Falling In" by Lifehouse

I absolutely LOVED this book! Ms. Greene has created an amazing tale where twists and turns lead to an unexpected and awesome end! I loved how vividly she described Wynnedower--even to the point where it became an actual character for me. Rachel is a great, great character and I truly enjoyed getting to know her and especially her quirks. One comment was made about how Rachel was too intelligent to struggle with the types of feelings she had about men. I find that absolutely ridiculous. We all have struggles others would view as irrational however it is how we overcome those struggles that makes us great. Rachel is no exception. This third novel by Ms. Greene proves that she has true talent and I look forward to many more captivating characters she will allow us to experience! I want more...
