Hayfield Manor’ is a beautifully written mystery romance, with enough twists and turns to keep any reader up until the early hours. You won’t want to put it down!
Morgan Lloyd, medically retired from a high-flying career in the police force, takes on her first role as a private investigator. As a favour to a friend she agrees to take over the security at Hayefield Manor, in an attempt to find out why bodies keep appearing on the grounds. Suspicion has fallen on lady of the manor, Sophie Haye. Cold, hard and terrifying she may appear to those outside, but as Morgan finds out, there is more to Sophie than first impressions imply. As evidence mounts, can Morgan trust her instincts, or is Sophie playing her?
Sophie is one scary woman, but I really warmed to her. She had that irresistible ice queen vibe, but Morgan slowly chipped away until she could see something more, even if no-one else could. Jody Klaire’s writing is wonderfully descriptive and so impressively clever. Just when I thought I knew where it was going, I was astounded again by the ingenuity of the plot. I love it when an author can do that to me. She flipped my perceptions. The story was very cleverly crafted and layered. It was one helluva ride with surprises and revelations galore. Absolutely fantastic
I was given this ARC for review.
