Welcome back to the world of the Everstone family! I know that I am thrilled to be back in their lives, watching the drama unfold. And what a wonderful drama it is!
What did I love about this book?
For starters, I loved the setting. Everston and the surrounding land was beautifully described. I felt like I was there. The feeling of coming home that Estella experienced upon her return to Everston is palpable.
The characters in this story are also captivating, as has been the case in all three of the books in the series. It is so interesting to be able to really get to know Estella in this book and to see her personal growth into a woman who truly knows her own heart. Dexter Blakeley is a wonderful hero for Estella. What a complex situation these two find themselves in. Dexter and his family have an intriguing and painful backstory. The author does a very good job of slowly allowing the reader to learn about the events of the past that have impacted Dexter’s family so very much.
Looking for a bit of a gothic feel? Try Blakeley House. Estella’s experience here is pure gothic romance, in my opinion. Although this home is a refuge for Estella at one point in the story, I couldn’t help but feel nervous for her at times in the book. You can chalk it up to my reaction to Estella’s first impressions upon moving into the house. Two young women are currently residing in the house and spend most of their time behind the closed doors of their rooms. Then there is Dexter’s mother, mean-spirited and sharp-tongued, and decidedly unstable. Throw in a shadowy, candle-lit encounter, and the gothic vibe is definitely happening here!
I highly recommend this entire series and I am hoping to read more about the Everstone family in the future. (5 stars)

Thank you so much for posting your review of The Captive Imposter, Brittany! I’m so glad you loved it! And yes–I do love that gothic vibe! I loved this story, even though I had to write it with an infant constantly demanding my attention away from the characters! I can still hardly believe it’s finished! Now! Onto Vance and Violet!–though it will be a lot longer than 3-5 months before readers have it in their hands! ❤️
I am so excited to read about Vance and Violet! The wait will just build up the anticipation. 🙂
