About the Book
Can one develop feelings for the man you swore to see hanged? That’s just what Rebecca fears she has done in this Gothic Regency romance. 

After her brother’s mysterious death, Rebecca Hunter vows to expose the man she believes responsible: Mr. Lewis Browning—known by the locals as the Midnight Devil and by Rebecca as her new guardian.

Summoned to his reclusive country estate to await her London season, Rebecca plans her own secret investigation among the darkened corridors of the mysterious Greybourne Hall. Yet Lewis Browning is not as she once imagined, and his motivation is horribly unclear. Recurrent nightmares and Rebecca’s restless feelings are further complicated by the shadow of her mother’s prior descent into madness and wondering if she, too, will follow the same heartbreaking path.

Even as midnight rides, strange injuries, and further murders lead back to Mr. Browning, Rebecca can’t ignore the subtle turn of her heart. Has she fallen for the man she swore would pay for her brother’s death? And moreover, can she trust him with her uncertain future? (from Goodreads)

My Thoughts

My anticipation was high for this book. I love Wilson's style and twists and turns. She keeps the tensions high throughout the whole story and ties up the various pieces in a neat little bow by the end of the story.

Rebecca and Lewis are thrown together by desperate circumstances. When mysterious rumors concerning her brother's death begin to surface, Rebecca finds more questions around every corner.

I love the feel of Wilson's Gothic Regency stories. Dark, mysterious, and full of plot twists. Through it all, the hope and light shine through the cracks until everything crumbles and only the truth remains. 

I received a complimentary copy of Midnight on the River Grey. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
