It is believed Brigham's father, Allister, finally snapped, killing the children and family at his mercy.

Scarlet, a fresh out of college journalist, knows

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Dark and mysterious, Walls of Ainsley holds within its pages a story of secrets, desperation, fear, and even romance. Told from alternating POV's, the main characters, Brigham and Scarlet, want to get to the bottom of the mystery, but for entirely different reasons. Scarlet is driven, to the point of being slightly obsessed, but her POV is the most enlightening because of that determination. I loved that she was fierce in her want for Brigh

I have read the other author's books, but this is my fave- I love thrillers, and this book delivers! You feel as though you are in England alongside the characters, especially because the male protagonist has grown up in seclusion, and you find yourself falling for the slightly disturbed sexy British man who you'd think is from the 1800s--from his clothing to speech. This is not your typical thriller, as it is laced with a story of romance, as two characters find themselves with troubled pasts, ...more

This was a book full of surprises for me. I have to say the story kept me intrigued and because of that, I raced through until the end. Scarlet wants her big break and travels to England to pursue an explosive story- Brigham Ainsley, the son of the most notorious mass murderer in Surrey and believed to be dead. Scarlet's luck holds as she gets an invitation into the former orphanage which is now a home. The mystery owner and Scarlet are drawn to each other and as she gets to know him she suspect ...more

** I volunteered to read an advance reader copy of this book. **

I like a good suspenseful story and this did not disappoint. I found myself trying to figure out the mystery as it unraveled only to be surprised by a turn of the page. An edge-of-your-seat, heart rate accelerating, erotically charged read.

This book is not like any other that I have read. Scarlet is just out of college with debt she knows she can't repay. The only way that she can keep from getting caught back up in her past is to get a good job right out of college. What better way than to put to rest the story of the Ainsley's orphanage.

No one from the Manor has returned her phone calls for interviews, so she decides to show up in person. Will this be Scarlet's ending? Will she get the story before she meets the same fate as the

This is part one of a two book series, which is fabulously suspenseful. The romantic element keeps you sated in this first book, but it is a story that you will need to read the second for the conclusion. The vivid imagery of Ainsley Manor makes you feel like you can step into the story and I found that this thriller delivered plenty of twists and turns to keep me reading. I confess to being disappointed that there were not more of my questions resolved in this first book, but only because the s ...more

If you are a fan of suspense, then I recommend you check out this book.

Her journalist radar was triggered and she felt there was more to the story. After graduating, she travels from San Fransisco, California to Surrey, England and somehow winds up staying at the scene of the crime. While there she meets Brigham Ainsley, t ...more

This is an awesome book! It's suspenseful and dramatic. Scarlet and Brigham are very deep characters, each with their own demons. I can't wait to read book 2! This is a must read!!
