Product Description

Regency Gothic Romance
Note: Previously published under the title of Carisbrooke Abbey

When Miss Hilary Wentworth takes up an appointment at Carisbrooke Abbey, little does she suspect it will lead her into a whirlwind of mystery and romance. Her employer, Marcus, Lord Carisbrooke, is gruff and irascible, yet underneath his manner she senses a deep and abiding pain. As her feelings for him deepen, Marcus's crusty exterior vanishes and she finds her love is returned. But the secret that haunts the abbey must be overcome before they can find the happiness they richly deserve.

Likely to appeal to fans of Victoria Holt

Review
"I am delighted to see the return of the Gothic novel, and in this case, one so skilfully handled.
We have the full range of ingredients here. Miss Hilary Wentworth is the orphaned young woman going for a position to a gloomy, dramatic abbey set in a wild and lonely spot; Lord Carisbrooke is her irascible employer who has more to him than at first seems the case. There are strange sounds in the night, secret passages, an untrustworthy heir, a mad woman and sullen retainers. Lord Carisbrooke has a terrible secret hanging over him; dastardly deeds are in train and Hilary finds herself in very real danger.

Over the top you might think, but Amanda Grange tells her story so well and with such bravura we are convinced and read on to an exciting denoument and a satisfying end. An absorbing and enjoyable read." -Pamela Cleaver, Historical Novel Society

4.0 out of 5 stars One night at the Abbey 6 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it is quite a good book and very enjoyable. The plot was very good but a bit predictable in places. A good imagination is useful for some of the scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hooking storyline! 31 Dec 2012
By Sophie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What an intriguing story! Once I had started it was really hard to put down! I really couldn't tell where it was all heading - love books like that! It was fun to read a more gothic and mystery filled romance of Grange's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping tale 4 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another of this author's entertaining historical romances with some swashbuckling and derring-do to add to the reading experience. An impoverished young woman obtains employment at a remote location in order to find out what has happened to her only relation, the former housekeeper. Gothic elements and an air of mystery add to the mix and give this tale its impact. A quick and enjoyable read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gothic effort not quite pulled off 22 July 2013
By Kim F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This seemed like an effort to mimic Jane Eyre or other popular Gothic-style novels, but it wasn't quite pulled off. The rhythm never seemed to really get going and I found it a tougher read than some of Grange's other books. It wasn't bad, but I found myself a bit disappointed. If this had been the first of Grange's book I read, I may well have not read others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful and enjoyable retelling of Jane Eyre! 4 Dec 2012
By Charlene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this novel because it is inspired by Jane Eyre, and as a retelling it does a great job. The character development is a little shallow, and the romance starts quickly, but Hilary is a strong, intelligent character who is clearly the kind of woman Marcus Carisbrooke needs. And for once both Hilary and Marcus are described as not very pretty/handsome! Just like in Jane Eyre. The story does follow the basic plot of Jane Eyre, but there are many interesting changes and ideas that kept the story fresh and suspenseful. Marcus Carisbrooke's secret was especially unpredictable and a brilliant change totally in keeping with the character. And it is a secret that could definitely keep the two apart.

Although Hilary and Marcus's love runs deep too quickly for my taste, there is a lot of chemistry and tension, and it makes a very enjoyable read. There is another mystery in this story than just Marcus's secret, and it makes a wonderful addition to the story. I absolutely couldn't put the book down during the final few chapters. This story is well-written, romantic suspense with enough inventive twists to distinguish it from most straightforward Jane Eyre retellings.
3.0 out of 5 stars Only fair 27 April 2013
By B. Kus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometime after the first couple of chapters "Jane Eyre" popped into my mind. It was difficult to get it out. Grange is too good to do that but I don't think her heart is gothic enough for mad women and abbeys and ghosts. I love practically everything else she's written. this just didn't do it for me.
2.0 out of 5 stars I would not re-read this one 12 Feb 2013
By Anela - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book, that has been described as a retelling of Jane Eyre, was a disappointment. The characters are shallow, the relationships unlikely, and the overall plot very straightforward. I love Jane Eyre, and this book did not work at all for me. The storyline, it is true, copies a lot the elements we find in Jane Eyre - the unhappy, destitute heroine, the brooding, gloomy hero that hides a "terrible" secret, the nice and handsome cousin that takes interest in the heroine, the crazy woman in the attic. But the magic is not there. To me, this was just another regency novella, that I will forget I have read in no time. If you want an easy read and don't expect a literary experience, you might like it.
