Dark Monday!!

Last week I finally finished The Girl who played with Fire by Steig Larrson and what an amazing read it was! Highly recommended!

This week I am again reading suspense – thriller book but this one is written in the early 19th century by an author I have been wanting to read for such a long time…

Yes I finally got this one from a bookstore in Bombay where I had been 2 weeks back on vacation!

Here is a little something about the book ~~

The Priory may be ramshackle in appearance, but Peter, Margaret and Celia, who inherited it from their uncle, love it for its rambling charm. But there’s more to this house than is at first apparent: for years hardly a single person has set foot in the place, and even their uncle chose to live in a different house, far away from this particular property.
Local wisdom says that the house is haunted. And when things start going bump in the night, it certainly seems as if something ghostly is walking the Priory’s halls. Then a murder is committed. Does the key to solving the crime lie in the realm of the supernatural? Or is the explanation much more down to earth?
Blurb from Arrow books paperback edition (2006)

So has anyone read this one yet?
Head over to J.Kaye’s to know what everyone is reading!!

  1. Glad you enjoyed the Larrson. I'm baffled by the cover of the Heyer book since she set her story in the Regency period (early 19th century, as you said). Those clothes and the cigarettes are from the twentieth century. I'll be interested to see what you think of the story. Enjoy.

I love to hear your thoughts!
