Unlike so many of the other readers reviewing this I am not already a fan or a member of the grammar/spelling police. I did enjoy this story I like the play on the vampire fears that the young soon to be debutante have. It sort of reminds me of how so many in our current and entirely real world wish for such monsters to be real. *shiver* I also liked how the author set up her new series but still managed to complete this story. I liked Vincent he is flawed but likeable and protective but not ove ...more

He avoids daylight, visiting his wife’s grave only in the dead of night & never socializes with the townspeople. Add the book, Wake Not the Dead, and Vincent Latimer, Viscount Atwood, has been label a vampire. Of course he does nothing to dissuade the rumors; after all he prefers to be left alone with his guilt over his wife’s death. But then no one has ever asked how he is or why he avoids daylight.

Read as part of the Timeless Quills Timeless Collection. This book is reminiscent of the old Horror Novels from the 1800's. A mysterious viscount, who can't go in the sun, Must be a vampire according to many in the town and the young students at the local girls school. The girls are itching for a good mystery, so they continue on their quest of proving Lord Atwood is a Vampire and he has brought back his dead wife from the other side to kill them. They have ample time for their search when a Tem ...more

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this book, but I found myself enjoying it immensely.
Tess Crawford teaches at Wiggon's School for Elegant Young Ladies, a boarding school where she has been hiding from her past. Vincent, Lord Atwood, lives nearby, and is hiding from his past and debilitating migraines. His aversion to light, and a popular novel, lead many in the village to believe he is a vampire. On a dark and stormy night, Lord Atwood and Tess' fate are thrown together... For someone

This book had me hooked from the first page! The idea of a brooding viscount surrounded by the mystery of a young wife's death and his aversion to sunlight captured my interest at once. The entire town believes Vincent is a vampire, and the truth is, he does nothing to discourage them otherwise. He enjoys his privacy, and he admits that his dreary, dark home is off-putting to most. A disaster, however, changes his life drastically as a tornado rips through the area, destroying a prominent girls' ...more

A tale of Vampires? A mysterious old map. A reclusive ex-soldier. A murderess. A school for young ladies. Mix them all together and you get "To Walk in the Sun". Jane Charles spins a tale with mysteries to solve, damsels to save and treasures to find along with healing hearts and souls. This was a delightful and fun read.
Three stars for the inventive plot, using the Victorian infatuation with the supernatural and the modern fixation on paranormal romance to keep the reader guessing and then entertained.

However, and I'm usually fairly tolerant with ebooks, this book has been carefully proofread by someone with weak spelling. The first word is mis-spelled: "lightening" (like in "thunder"). "Lightening" begins another chapter, and "drug" is also used, as the past tense of "drag". Oy. Regency schoolteachers exist in
:) This is a great book! I got it as a free ebook from Amazon - along with hundreds of others - but this one went straight to my "next to read" list due to the unique description. A lot of books lose me if they throw too much information out or do more telling than showing...this book was not like that and after only just a few pages I thought to myself I wish all books were set up this strongly. The characters and suspenseful plot continued to be very solid and very enjoyable. I hope to read mo ...more

Worth a read! A light story full of mystery and secrets. Deserves 4 stars. I will be checking out the other books by this author.

The young ladies of Wiggon's school for young ladies believe that their neighbor is a vampire, because he's only seen at night. That's how this book began and I have to say I thoughly enjoyed it. This is the start of another series that takes place in the Regency period. I loved how the heroine stuck up for herself and the hero tolerated the young ladies and their flights of fancy, even believing he's a vampire and his dead wife still walks the earth.

I really enjoyed this story. All the characters were very interesting and all the suspense held my attention. I really liked the three girls that caused all the mischief as they made me laugh. I hope Jane writes more in this series as I would like to read more.

Really loved this book. So much so that I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. I love the story line, the characters stories were touching, and the humour amongst the students was great. I thoroughly enjoyed and can recommend this book.
