    I Loved It!

    Thank you to Net Galley and Choc Lit for the chance to read and review this book! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I do not usually read time slip stories, but this one was so good that I'm sure I will read more of this genre. When Merryn Burton takes a job to catalogue and value the art at an old mansion named Pencradoc, she soon realizes there is more to the house then meets the eye. Through the paintings and the ability to go back in time, Merryn and the two brothers that own the mansion are soon caught up in the lives of some characters that lived in the house long ago. The author does a brilliant job of connecting both time periods-present and past. I highly recommend this book and plan to read more by this author!

    A ghostly romance

    This ghostly romance is a very well crafted story. When Merryn arrives at Pencradoc to catalogue their treasures it seems like a dream visit, when she meets the brothers who have inherited the house things improve even more. However soon the ideal seems to be tainted. As the three spend more time together in the house shades from the past begin to take over their lives. Past and present are braided together to bring peace to the old inhabitants of the house. As Kit and Merryn get to know each other it seems as if their romance is not meant to be, throw in a bad relationship with brother Coren and sparks fly. Sit back and enjoy this book with a bar of chocolate to hand to eat in the present.

    A Great Read

    Kirsty is the master of timeslip and this paranormal romance didn’t disappoint. Merryn arrives at Pencradoc to assess their artwork. Kit and Coren, the Penhaligon brothers need to raise finance for their projects. But are their ancestors ready to give up their secrets and let them get on with their lives. The story moves seamlessly backwards and forwards as we meet Ellory, Duke of Pencradoc and his brother Jago, together with their wives and through them learn of the secrets and heartbreak that affected them. When the ghosts of the past start to affect the present, Merryn starts to wonder if the brothers are really what they seem, but only by uncovering the truth and laying ghosts to rest will Kit, Coren and Merryn be able to get on with their own lives. The characters are so lovely and complex, it is a delight reading about them and they are easy to empathise with. It was a joy to read and I loved it.

    A top end 4 rating, very nearly a 5!

    An enjoyable romance (though set in Cornwall there were no smugglers involved!), in what seems to have become Kirsty Ferry’s trademark time slip style. Merryn is sent by her employers to catalogue and assess the artwork in a stately home, recently inherited by the Penhaligon brothers, Coren and Kit. However, there are other less substantial inhabitants of Pencradoc – ancestors of Coren and Kit – Ellory, Duke of Pencradoc in the 1880’s, his two wives, (Rose and Zennor), his brother Jago, and Alys, (Zennor’s cousin). The modern day characters become increasingly affected by the ancestors, discovering lots of secrets, eventually uncovering the truth behind the deaths of Rose and Ellory, but not without incurring some scars themselves, both mental and physical. The story seems to take some inspiration from the Browning poem ‘My Last Duchess’, and I thought the way the plot was woven was clever, moving back and forth in time without detracting anything from the flow - in the excellent way I have come to expect from Ms Ferry. Another winner for her, and Choclit!
