    Well, that kept me on the edge of my seat!

    I can easily point out my favourite part of historical suspense novels, the prose! It’s lyrical and pulls you in easily. You get lost in the emotions, tension and scenes.

    Abigail Wilson has delivered this to a T while also bringing authenticity. She’s certainly becoming a voice to keep an eye out for.

    Abigail Wilson has delivered this to a T while also bringing authenticity. She’s certainly becoming a voice to keep an eye out for.

    Rebecca Hunter is a mixture of light and darkness. She’s spunky, outspoken and confident. But deep down, she’s haunted, unsure and afraid of who she will become. And then, her brother dies and she’s left in the guardianship of his murderer, who claims it’s an accident.

    Well, Lewis Browning is known as the Midnight Devil, is hated by the villagers, is adored by her neglectful father and hated by her beloved brother. He’s also vexing and maddening.

    But Lewis Browning is also the only one who can provide the answers Rebecca needs to find peace and uncover the mystery of her brother’s death. The real danger will be when he ends up being the one to uncover the mysteries of Rebecca’s own heart.

    Abigail Wilson takes her time revealing, taking us readers by surprise and making each chapter impossible to be the last. Full of twists and turns, I loved how historical the mystery turned out to be.

    I’m so looking forward to her next release!

    this book was absolutely amazing! Im obsessed. I am sooo totally getting the rest of her books in the future! That ending... I’m speechless. Nope I’m beyond speechless. I’m so speechless I have words again!!!!! IT WAS THAT GOOD!!! It reminded me of Jane Eyre/Jane Austen. I highly recommend this book to everyone in existence. This one gets all of the stars!

  • Melissa Tagg

    I REALLY loved this book! I enjoyed this author's first book, but this one hooked me even more. The romance was steady and believable, and the mystery had enough twists and turns to easily keep me turning pages. And the both the voice and the atmosphere of the story were just pitch perfect! Also, I appreciated the small tie-in with the author's first book. (Also, dare I hope we get Torrington's story down the road??) Highly recommend!

  • Cara Putman

    The story is told in first person and has a gothic feel to it thanks to the large estate and crumbling mansion. The heroine is determined to find justice, and the hero is misunderstood and appealing. A great combination of characters, plot, and setting. I was immediately sucked into the world the author created.

    Satisfying historical mystery novel!

    Rebecca Hunter is determined not to marry because of her mother's mental illness. She is also determined to find out who murdered her brother. She is a spunky main character that doesn't like being told what to do, especially by Lewis Browning.

    The mystery of who murdered Jacob was entertaining to see unravel. The slowly blossoming romance was delightful. Secondary characters Aunt Jo and Sophie added to the novel.

    Abigail Wilson is highly recommended for readers

    “Midnight on the River Grey” is Abigail Wilson’s second novel which I quite enjoyed. This is a regency mystery that will keep the pages turning and full of intrigue. Although the whodunit is a bit predictable, the authors fills the pages with many unexpected twists and turns. Fans of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters will love this!

    I wasn’t sure of what to think about any of the characters at first, but as the story continued, they began to grow on me. So much that readers will want to cheer on

    I wasn’t sure of what to think about any of the characters at first, but as the story continued, they began to grow on me. So much that readers will want to cheer on a certain romance. Although I do wish that the author would have used Mr. Browning within the story a little more so we can learn more about him.

    Overall, I enjoyed this a lot. Highly recommended!

    Midnight on the River Grey was a captivating read. It started off slowly, but the story drew me in and I ended up really enjoying the book. I liked how it had so many twists and the mystery wasn't easy to guess.

    The characters were well written. I found the heroine, Rebecca, to be a bit reckless at times, but I liked how she wasn't afraid of finding out the truth. Lewis was an interesting character...I didn't know at first whether he was a good guy or not!

  • Alysha (For The Love of Christian Fiction)

    Let me start off by saying I loved the premise and FEEL of this book. It was dark, yet not heavy. It felt almost gothic in nature, I was all for it.

    I instantly fell for our mysterious hero, Mr. Lewis Browning. *insert literally ALL of the heart eyes* He was my FAVORITE part of the whole book, and I might have cried a little when I realized we weren't going to get his perspective at all.

    He was so dark, and mysterious, yet there was such good in him. He had a huge heart though he tried to hide it

    He was so dark, and mysterious, yet there was such good in him. He had a huge heart though he tried to hide it behind a brooding facade.

    Rebecca was meh to me. Her voice was SO young and immature. She would jump to conclusions, she would speak without thinking, and she never thought about the consequences. People would tell her not to do something, for her own safety, yet she would do it anyways.

    I am ALL for strong, independent female leads, but she did NOT have that air about her. I wasn't a fan of her attitude.

    I did enjoy the intrigue plot to the book. I had my suspicions while reading the book, but I was excited when the author took the story a different way and gave us a different villain.

    As a whole I did enjoy the story in the end. I rated it a 3.5/5 stars.

    . And I'm so glad I did! From page one, this book drew me right into the story and I did not want to put it down.

    Wilson has a beautiful writing style that fits the time period so perfectly and drew me right into the story. Everything down to the characters' dialogue is so perfectly accurate, although there were a few instances of dialogue that I felt were too modern. The plot was intriguing and kept me on my toes, guessing as to how the story would end. Although I did surmise the ending ahead of time, that didn't take away from the enjoyment of the story for me.

    I loved each of the characters as well, but I have to say, they felt rather flat to me. I feel like more depth could have been added and made the story that much better. While they were good characters, and I enjoyed their story, they could have been better characters with a little more fleshing out.

    All in all, I very much enjoyed this intriguing Regency novel and look forward to reading more by this talented author! If this is only her second book and it's already this good, I look forward to reading even more excellent works! I highly recommend checking this book out! You won't regret it.

    I adore the Gothic atmosphere Abigail Wilson creates in her Regency novels. Even descriptions of perfectly mundane details, such as the room the characters are in and the time of day, are carefully calculated to perpetuate that delicious sense of uncertainty and nervousness: On Saturday night, Aunt Jo and I gathered in the drawing room, the dark night lurking beyond the curtains, a chill hovering just beyond the reach of the large fireplace.” I get tingles all over again just typing it.

    I adore the Gothic atmosphere Abigail Wilson creates in her Regency novels. Even descriptions of perfectly mundane details, such as the room the characters are in and the time of day, are carefully calculated to perpetuate that delicious sense of uncertainty and nervousness: On Saturday night, Aunt Jo and I gathered in the drawing room, the dark night lurking beyond the curtains, a chill hovering just beyond the reach of the large fireplace.” I get tingles all over again just typing it. Couple that with a plot that really did take me by surprise in the last quarter, and you have the makings of an unputdownable read.

    There were a few aspects, though, that I felt didn’t quite reach their full potential—in particular, the main characters. I’m a bit of a sucker for a Gothic hero—the more complex the better! And I did like Lewis Browning, but in some ways, that was the problem. He was a little bit

    easy to like, whereas I would have preferred there to be more mystery or even broodiness about his character.

    And then there was Rebecca, whom I have to admit annoyed me at times, particularly the way she went about trying to discover information about her brother’s death. She didn’t really think through some of her actions (even as she justified them to herself and the reader), and she was a fairly flat character overall. I would have loved to have seen her grow more as a person.

    The romance develops subtly for the most part—just the way I like it in a Gothic—but I have to admit I sometimes wondered what Lewis saw in Rebecca. She didn’t do a lot to endear herself to him. But for those who are looking for great atmosphere and an intriguing mystery in their next Gothic read, this one is sure to satisfy.

    I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
