this was a great start to the Grace Beale series, it was what I was hoping for in a opening chapter. The plot does a great job in what was going on and having a good historical mystery element to this. It was what I was hoping for and was invested in what was going on. The characters worked really well in the context and does a great job in telling their story. I can't wait to read more from E. Atkinson.
"Daisy glanced over her shoulder at her sleeping mistress and child. Oh God, what was she to do? She turned back to the desperate man before her and thought that the path of least resistance would be best. Against her better judgement, she threw up the sash window and stood back whilst the intruder hooked one leg over the windowsill and then the other, eventually standing just inside the room."
This was a good book i liked how it started it was eerie it had all the gothic elements and vibes to it. This man gets a inheritance and he goes to Ravenswood Hall. I loved the characters he meets and how they ask where he is going an everyone knows where it is that its out in the country like a place on its own. It had a lot of gothic vibes to it.
It reminded me of a mystery as well and the ending of the book and i liked the fact that in the end even though it didnt have a horror element it had a big twist. Thank you for letting me read this arc I really enjoyed it!
