WHY EARLS FALL IN LOVE
With its shades of I Know What You Did Last Summer and strong gothic overtones, Collin’s latest is a chill seeker’s delight. Along with the surprising climax, readers will thoroughly enjoy the well-crafted characters, the charming setting and the romance that adds spice to the drama.
War widow Georgina Mowbray has found the prefect position as Lady Russell’s companion. She feels confident and safe — until menacing letters start to arrive. Concern compels Lady Russell to ask her nephew, the Earl of Coniston, to unearth the cause of Georgina’s unease. Georgie believes him to be too much a rogue to trust. Con is determined to change Georgie’s mind and begins an investigation. When dangerous ghosts of Georgie’s past come into play, Con is there to protect her and her friends from the menace that haunts them. (ST. MARTIN’S, Feb., 380 pp., $7.99)
