I wasn't sure if I'd like a book that was in a series of books by multiple authors that are only connected via the county they occur in but otherwise spanning multiple families and decades......

The author proved my hesitancy to be unwarranted which is doubly impressive since I'm not normally a huge fan of new adult and contemporary romance aren't as commonly read as romances with either a fantastical or historical thread.

Bella starts out as a kinda spoiled, hard to connect with heroine. Her Aunt

I liked the leading lady of this story:Bella Raines. She may seem a bit young but you, the reader, will find she is not easily deterred nor does she let herself to be pushed aside by those who seem to be "older and wiser."

When our leading lady meets a charming and mysterious young man, Eli O'Brian, the two of them try to figure out her aunt as well as a bullish older man, and a few other adults who cause a bit(well more then a bit) of trouble.

There are some very well written twists in this book

Missing the Gate by Aubree Lane was a great Read. Bella returns home to find her inheritance in complete ruin. She meets Eli and they quickly become romantic. Bella has asked Eli to help her in uncovering all the mysteries that surround Able Manor. I loved reading this book and can’t wait to read more by Aubree Lane.

“Missing the Gate” is constructed of a web of deceit in which all the townspeople are involved.

Read full review in the 2018 April issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Bella returns home thirteen years after she left and nothing is the same. There is muc to be discovered. This book was intriguing. It kept me hooked from the start, and I couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend it. ...more

Will written suspense novel with a sweet side. Nothing is as it seems for a young woman who has returned to the family she never really knew. The death of her mother results in a return to a father she fears and mistrusts. Greet plot and well developed characters. Good story.

I liked this story of a young woman whose mother upon her death bed tells her to go to the family estate. When she gets there she finds that people are not who they seem, she gets to know the father she barely remembers and a 13 year old mystery that comes to light and shows what truly happened all those years ago. I received a complimentary copy and I am voluntarily reviewing.
