Book Description

"C.J. has done it again." ~ Amazon reviewer Richard Bird in a review of POSSESSION

"I have to admire CJ Archer's creative mind to have produced such an enjoyable series." ~ Amazon reviewer outspoken1 in a review of EVERMORE

"Thank you, C.J.Archer. Please keep writing." ~ Amazon reviewer Senior Citizen #8 in a review of THE MEDIUM

It's customary for Gothic romance novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah Smith just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic and the companion to an earl's daughter with a strange affliction of her own, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head and food in her belly when so many orphans starve on the streets. Yet freedom is something Hannah longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of kidnapping.

Taken by handsome Jack Langley to a place known as Freak House, she finds herself under the same roof as a mad scientist, his niece, a mute servant and Jack, a fire starter with a mysterious past. They assure Hannah she is not a prisoner and that they want to help her. The problem is, they think she's the earl's daughter. What will they do when they discover they took the wrong girl?

    Set in the 19th century England the story is about a young girl Hannah Smith who has spent most of her life living in the attic until the day when she was kidnapped and brought to Freak House, a place with occupants whose past in not less mysterious than Hannah’s’.

    From the very beginning of the book, every single page seems to add more and more questions making the book almost impossible to put down! Curious and brave Hannah makes her way through them in an attempt to resolve all the mysteries of the Freak House and its occupants. The romantic part enriches the whole story making characters even more true and believable.

    I really enjoyed the tension that lasted throughout the book, but unfortunately, it ended quiet suddenly leaving readers without answers to all of the thrilling questions. Despite all that, I’m really looking forward to reading the second part of it and hoping that it’s as interesting, mysterious and thrilling as the first one!

    There are very few books I've read that I have been unable to pull myself away from, and this is one. I could not put it down, and I didn't, I read this book in one day! It captivated my imagination from the beginning. The characters are so well written you feel as though you are in the room with them, and it is not long before you fall in love with, what I consider, the two main characters, Hannah and Jack, as you see their relationship grow. Being set in the 1800's adds to mysterious, intriguing atmospheric of the novel. One may say the end leaves questions unanswered, however being fully aware that this is the first in a series, having those questions unanswered only makes me all the more eager to read the next book immediately. Fantastic writing with a rich story you can really get engulfed in, I highly recommend this book!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly Original 18 July 2013
    By Corazie
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This was one fantastic read! A really fascinating story which I couldn't put down, so this is easily a 5 stars. Isn't there a 6 star option?

    The characters really came to life for me, and there was plenty of mystery and drama, and even a spark of romance.

    Hannah was loyal and strong, Jack was headstrong and Sylvia? Well, I still think she's hiding something. Bollard was creepy and more than a little scary.

    The twists in this book are excellent and I wasn't even expecting most of them. It's great to be surprised by a book, by the way the plot is woven, especially when there are so few original ideas out there. I don't know if this book will be to everyone's tastes, but I freaking love it, it's an excellent start to the series which I know I will continue reading.

    I am now more eager than ever to read C.J. Archer's Emily Chambers series, that little reference has got me intrigued. Thank goodness I already have the first book!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Gothic mistaken identity... 6 July 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Combining Victorian favourite themes of mistaken identities, mysterious benefactors and unknown orphans in a sprawling gothic mansion, The Wrong Girl feels like Wilkie Collins for teens. Hannah Smith, our orphan is mistaken for the daughter of a Lord and kidnapped. Finding herself among others who have just as mysterious pasts as herself, and determined to protect her friend, she plays along with their assumptions while trying to figure out what is really going on at Freak House.

    Hannah is a smart and feisty young lady - which seems a little odd given how sheltered her life was up until this point but it does make her a very modern heroine and easy to relate to. Her kidnappers range from lonely and overlooked young lady, a brooding older guy with secrets of his own and a scientist with odd ideas and changeable moods. There are some periods of over explanation as people spend a lot of time telling Hannah things - these info dumps are interesting but mean the main plot doesn't move along much. This being the first book in a series it beautifully sets up some intriguing questions and plot arcs for Hannah and co to uncover in the future - why was she hidden in the attic for so long? What happened to her parents? These are all questions I want to know answers to!

    However, so much time is spent setting up the wider plot arcs, the plot of these book feels a little rushed. Centring on a break in at Freak House and stolen research notes, the resolution to this was sudden and could easily have been avoided by the characters if they were a little more sensible or patient.

    By Suzy
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I'm a big fan and I just recently read the Medium series which I loved. So I went on to read more series but I didn't enjoy it quiet as much, not sure why !! I felt it was a bit wishy washy I know people just hope you read the next one so don't give much away but felt like nothing was given away in this book. But I still recommend it. I was just frustrated by it a bit.
