Marlie is a California girl who attends a Cadavar Ball with her best friend from the South and ends up in a whirlwind relationship. Previously divorced (with her husband dying shortly afterward), Marlie's not sure she wants to jump into anything too quickly.

I was captivated by the cover of this book, which was the main reason why I wanted to read this. I had no clue as to what kind of book I was in for (I didn't read the whole synopsis). I was hooked right away and came to enjoy myself quite a bit.
I was surprised how many elements this book had: slight romance, suspense, ghosts, mystery, and drama. Right away this book reminded me of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca. Like in Rebecca, the heroine Marlie entered a marriage where she barely knew the m ...more
Less than 24 hours later, Daniel proposes to Marlie as she is leaving to go back to California. A year later they are married, even though Ma ...more
Marlie is curious by nature which of course leads to trouble. Trouble, trouble, trouble. But, what fun would it be if Marlie wasn't in trouble?! No fun at all.
Marlie is smart and down to earth. The new family and world that Marlie gets caught up in is out of her comfort zone for sure. There are so many pretenses, secrets and pe ...more
I went into the story thinking I had a pretty good idea of how it would go. Mystery in a marriage, secrets, danger, all of the descriptors that come to mind when considering the classics. While "Replacing Gentry" did have all of them in it, there was more to the story that I wasn't expecting.
Marlie is from California a ...more

Marlie got more than marriage when she got involved with Daniel. Secrets blanketed the death of his first wife and secret societies had a role to play. The mystery was everywhere.
Surprising and unexpected comes to mind when I think how the plot was designed to make this an easy, although sometimes a confusing, but romantic read.
I did not connect with the author that well - there was not much to identify with in the narrative, but not everyone can be kept happy ...more
Many other reviewers had problems warming up to Daniel. He disappointed me at times, but I found myself liking him from the airport forward. Marlie bugged me at times but I came around t ...more
Conspiracies, secret societies and people who will kill to keep their pasts in the past, this book is the perfect women's fiction... mystery blended with real em ...more
Even though this book didn't end the way I wanted, it was still a great read. Ford has a knack with the romance and the suspense. I would love to spend a few minutes inside her brain as she writes out her plots.
Perhaps my favorite character of this book was the Southern sister-in-law. ...more
All together this is an excellent read and I'm glad I had some down time to enjoy this novel!
