Publisher's Summary

When Anne's mother agrees to marry a wealthy, mysterious man, she expects a nice mansion in the hills. But their new home, Belrose Abbey, is more like a castle - imposing, cold, and full of shadows. The more Anne explores the corridors and vacant rooms and dusty crannies, the more she discovers about the abbey's master - her soon-to-be stepfather - Ivan Helsburg. As her mother's wedding draws closer, Anne begins to harbor a creeping suspicion that all is not well at Belrose Abbey.

Could have been better.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I liked all the characters, they are all different and had there own characteristic. The scene also set the tune. I felt it had more of a Gothic setting. What I did not like was knowing without trying to hard who did and why. There was suspense (based on the scenes, like the catacombs) but no real mystery. which was a shame because it wasn't to bad a read. I believe with a little more work it would be a great read.
There is no sexual/language/violence/sexual content.
This could be (with work done) what I call a thriller. It had all the ingredients but it wasn't executed well unfortunately.


What aspect of Michelle Babb’s performance might you have changed?

Michelle had an OK performance based on other narrators that I have listened to. She changed her voice to suite the different characters which was OK. However I felt more emotion can be put in. So when the character was not sure then I want to hear so I know without being to told that the character is unsure/upset/angry, etc.
