The ramshackle old house, with its rambling charm is beloved of Peter, Margaret and Celia, who have inherited it from their uncle. But local wisdom says The Priory is haunted. Then a murder is committed. Does the key to the crime lie in the realm of the supernatural? Or is the explanation much more down to earth?

Footsteps in the Dark is my first book by Georgette Heyer. Instead of choosing the other genres that Heyer writes, I chose this thriller/suspense one. The story is very much there in the blurb that I have posted. I liked Heyer’s writing a lot. It is based in the 20th century where ghosts and all are not believed in! It is quirky, funny and full of great details of how the people really where in those times. The only problem was that I guessed who was behind the whole haunting- affair and that’s why I am giving this one only 3.5 stars! There were many repartees by Charles that made me laugh out loud!! The humor was incredible and the book in itself was enjoyable. It is a light and fun-read!

I definitely enjoyed it!
