Twilight at Moorington Cross by Abigail Wilson (review)

Murder and secrets abound in Twilight at Moorington Cross, as a young widow hidden away for her affliction must choose between two men in order to receive an unexpected inheritance while working with an attractive solicitor to solve the murder of her benefactor. Author Abigail Wilson, in her fifth published work, again displays her flair for the gothic in this Regency mystery abounding with secrets, hidden motives, the fading interest in mesmerism, and a slow burning romance.

With an engaging narrator, whose disorder amps up the tension, this is an Inspirational Regency Romance – and author – not to miss! Highly recommended.

About the Book

Amelia Pembroke is in a unique position in Regency England: She can obtain financial freedom. But in order to do so, she must marry one of two gentlemen. The trouble is, she might be falling in love with another man entirely.

1819, Kent, England—Everything changed the moment Amelia became heiress to Moorington Cross. A young widow and patient at Cluett’s Mesmeric Hospital, Amelia is stunned to learn that her doctor—and the only father figure she’s ever known—has altered his will naming her his primary beneficiary. Such an opportunity is beyond what any Regency-era woman could dare to dream—especially one with a sleeping disorder that finds her falling asleep at the most random of times.

There is, however, a perplexing condition attached to the will: she must wed one of two named men, wholly unknown to her. Doing so would provide her with a secure future. But how can she marry one of these men when her heart is intrigued by the charming solicitor, Mr. Hawkins?

Everything takes on a new sense of urgency—and danger—when Mr. Cluett is found dead in his bedchamber only hours after announcing his updated will. Now Amelia only has thirty days to decide which man she will marry. But she is just as determined to uncover the truth of her benefactor’s demise with the help of Mr. Hawkins. After all, this sudden turn of events couldn’t merely be a coincidence—could it?

From award-winning author Abigail Wilson, Twilight at Moorington Cross is a mysterious Regency romance full of intrigue, mesmeric treatments, and abandoned corridors that proves love is the greatest testament of all.
