I really enjoyed reading My Name Is Rachel which is about Rachel's search for her birth mother. Rachel is living in a cottage inherited from her grandmother and meets clergyman Matthew Williams as her friend had called the church about Rachael hearing strange noises. Matthew find that it is just bats in the attic and he jumps at the chance of becoming her lodger. This is when the trouble starts. But is it aimed at Matthew, Rachel or both of them?

I loved how the story unfolded, it wasn't predict

This was one of those rare books that kept me flipping pages as I raced to find out what would happen next. The plot was full of mystery and suspense and while I thought I could predict the next twist or turn it was better than I predicted. I found the romance and family dynamics to be realistic and believable. The descriptions were rich in detail. Recommended.

This is an excellent read. The story flowed well and to me the balance between the mystery/romance and genealogy/family history aspects is very good. Lorna Peel brings her characters to life and presents a devastating story within story. This novel will keep the reader at the edge of their seat until the very last page.
