Suspicion by Alexandra Monir

“Take The Princess Diaries and add magic, murder and mystery, and you’ve got SUSPICION. A delightful read!”—Amy Plum, author of the of the international bestselling Die For Me series
“If Alfred Hitchcock had directed Downton Abbey, the result would have been this book. Alexandra Monir takes us on a gripping, nonstop thrill ride with just the right amount of supernatural and an ending that you definitely won’t suspect. I devoured it in one sitting.”—Jessica Brody, bestselling author of the Unremembered trilogy
Mysterious. Magnificent. Creepy. Welcome to Rockford Manor.
“There’s something hidden in the Maze.” Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family’s English country manor.
Haunted by her parents’ deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin’s untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.
All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion’s aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself–and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?
Combining a fresh twist on the classic REBECCA with a spine-tingling mystery and powerful romance, SUSPICION is an action-packed thrill ride.
I was hooked on to this book with phrases like “Princess Diaries + magic and mystery,” and “nonstop thrill ride.” Something is hidden in a maze, and this young girl is left to figure out the mystery on her own. With all the various elements that this premise mentions, it’s hard not to find something interesting here. English aristocracy, romance, and murder? Um, yes please! Sign me up for this one!
