There is nothing more that I love than cuddling up to a good book on a cold December day. With the past two months I've had this was just what I needed to do to escape for a little while. In The Shadow Of Croft Towers was the perfect escape book. The story starts wildly with a grand adventurous scene and lots of questions. The whole book keeps you guessing. The characters are developed well and you find yourself routing for the main character Sybil Delafield. I love how the author kept to the time setting and the characters were pretty prim and proper. There was romance, mystery and friendship in this book. Characters grew over the course as well which is always wonderful to see in a book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I will be looking at more stories from author Abigail Wilson as she is a wonderful writer.

From debut author Abigail Wilson comes a mysterious Regency tale of secrets and spies, love and treachery. Orphaned Sybil Delafield jumps at the opportunity for a position at the mysterious Croft Towers. She believes she was hired to act as companion to a dying woman, but a highway robbery and a hostile welcome from the Chalcroft family cause her to wonder if she was actually hired to help someone spy for France. An unsolved murder adds intrigue to this already secretive family, and Sybil recognizes Mrs. Chalcroft’s handsome grandson as one of the infamous highwaymen who robbed her. Sybil must determine if this man’s charming smile and earnest eyes speak the truth or if he is simply using her like others in the house. Everyone seems to have something to hide, and Sybil must decide who to trust while also coming to terms with the truth about her own past.
