In The Shadow of Croft Towers, Book Review

In the Shadow of Croft Towers, By Abigail Wilson 

When Sybil Delafield’s coach to Croft Towers was robbed by highwaymen, she should have realized that her new position as companion to old Mrs. Chalcroft would be no ordinary job. Upon Sybil’s arrival, Mrs. Chalcroft sneaks into her room in the dark of night, imploring her to relay messages to town that are to stay hidden from the rest of the family. Who exactly is she working for and what do the messages contain?
When fellow passengers of the robbed coach are later murdered, Sybil’s hunt for the truth takes on a new urgency. The only person she can rely on is Mr. Sinclair, Mrs. Chalcroft’s godson, but under all his charms he too leads a double life. Sybil must decide if he is the one honest voice she can trust, or if he is simply using her for his own advances.
With murderers, smugglers, and spies on the loose, nothing—and no one—in Regency England is what they claim. Can Sybil even trust what she knows about herself? 
My Thoughts: I have a few genres I love reading and In the Shadow of Croft Towers really covers them all. So I was very excited when I was offered the chance to review it by the publisher. Of course this doesn't change my opinion of the book in any way. The time period, and location of England is absolutely perfect and Abigail Wilson puts it together so well. There were so many different things going on in the book, that it really kept my attention. A wonderful read.
