Susan Coryell’s A Red, Red Rose quickly drew me into the slightly gothic atmosphere of a Southern mansion with a ghost and a hidden history. Ashby, a modern girl, misses her cell phone and internet access as she takes on caring for her nephew for the summer at the family home she’s never visited. The explanations for the estrangement increase the suspense page by page just as the romance between Ashby and Luke grows stronger.
Ashby is intrigued by the family secrets and the ghostly spirit that seems to be protecting her. despite the reluctance of everyone to share what they know, Ashby persists. The revelation result in a violent and surprising end.
I really enjoyed reading A Red, Red Rose and will be looking for the next story by Susan.
