THE SCARLET GOWN
Genre: Historical Romance, England
Mallory’s newest gothic tale of finding unexpected love deep in the Yorkshire moors sweeps readers into an uncomplicated mystery and a setting almost as dark and brooding as the hero. Though there is no doubt about whodunit, the quick pace, Mallory’s attention to detail and the engaging characters do not disappoint.
When Lucy Halbrook accepts her new employment, she must travel far from home and into the control of Lord Adversane. She agrees to play his fiancée and do everything as he commands. But in addition to the large sum she’ll get, Lucy is embroiled in a hunt to discover who murdered the previous Lady Adversane. Ralph has long assumed his wife was killed, but finding the man responsible is impossible until he plots to use Lucy as his wife’s double. In the quest for truth, Ralph discovers true love. He must decide if catching his wife’s killer is more important than losing a lifetime with Lucy. (HARLEQUIN, Jun., 288 pp., $6.50)
