Review: Watch For Me by Moonlight by Kirsty Ferry


Print Length: 294 pages
Publisher: Choc Lit (October 6, 2017)

From Goodreads.com: “It was the first full moon since that night. She waited and watched by moonlight, as she had promised …” 

When her life in London falls apart, Elodie Bright returns to Suffolk and to Hartsford Hall, the home of her childhood friend Alexander Aldrich, now the Earl of Hartsford. There, she throws herself into helping Alex bring a new lease of life to the old house and its grounds. 

After a freak storm damages the Hall chapel and destroys the tomb of Georgiana Kerridge, one of Alex’s eighteenth-century relatives, Elodie and Alex find a re-connection in the shocking discovery brought to light by the damaged tomb. 

Through a series of strange flashbacks and uncanny incidents, they begin to piece together Georgiana’s secret past involving a highwayman, a sister’s betrayal and a forbidden love so strong that it echoes through the ages …

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I have read very few stories that manage to weave "present day" so seamlessly with events that have happened in the past. However, this story manages to do just that. There is just enough "paranormal" events to add to my overall enjoyment of the story. I enjoyed watching as Elodie and Alex learned Georgiana's "true story", all of the dark times included. I also felt that the author managed to convey the "past" while being in the present in a way that was not confusing to the reader. I knew at all times when I was seeing past memories or events, and when I was in present day. 

One thing that I wish was better explained was the genealogy after the fact. From the way earlier events were described, I was half wondering if Elodie and Alex were in fact related somewhere down the line as well. 

Overall, I am sure this story will appeal to those who enjoy romance novels that have a bit of the paranormal tossed in. 

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
