Synopsis: A modern-day twist on the classic thriller, Rebecca, with a dash of the supernatural, a powerful romance, and a deadly family mystery.
“There’s something hidden in the maze.”
Seventeen-year-old Imogen Rockford has never forgotten the last words her father said to her, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family’s English country manor.
For seven years, images of her parents’ death have haunted Imogen’s dreams. In an effort to escape the past, she leaves Rockford Manor and moves to New York City with her new guardians. But some attachments prove impossible to shake—including her love for her handsome neighbor Sebastian Stanhope.
Then a life-altering letter arrives that forces Imogen to return to the manor in England, where she quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind Rockford’s aristocratic exterior. At their center is Imogen herself—and Sebastian, the boy she never stopped loving.
My Thoughts: I love how pretty this book cover is! Personally I have not read the story Rebecca that this is based around so I had no idea what to really expect story wise going into the book. I did enjoy the story. There was a nice supernatural mystery aspect to it. Some of the characters were a tad annoying at times so that made me not like the story as much as I could have. The setting of the story was really cool though. The manor sounded so beautiful and it seemed like a place that would be really neat to visit. I feel like there were things in the story that could have been done better but overall it was pretty good.
