REVIEW

Can we all agree that the colors of the cover of Midnight on the River Grey are beautiful?
As much as I wanted to like this book, I could not get into it. The characters seemed a little flat. Rebecca was serious about her investigation but how she went about it was a bit different than how I would have done it. I think that is why I couldn't connect with her. Rebecca does a lot of illogical things and she just didn't make sense.
Lewis was a bit confusing. Everyone describes him as 'mysterious' and thinks that he was involved in the death of Jacob. It was hard for me to see where the villages were coming from because he seemed very polite throughout the whole novel.
The romance was probably the main thing that made me a bit uncomfortable. You see, Rebecca and Lewis were distant relatives who called each other 'cousin' at the beginning of the novel. Their families are still close enough that Lewis was the heir when Jacob died. That probably would have been fairly normal considering the time period, but it was hard for me to wrap my mind around.
As far as the plot - it was interesting but something was missing.
Please take note that these thoughts are all my opinions and you may end up loving this book.

ABOUT THE BOOK 

Title: Midnight on the River Grey
Author: Abigail Wilson
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: July 2, 2019
Genre: Historical Suspense/Gothic Romance

She knew the house was keeping secrets. If only the darkness would speak . . .
After her elder brother’s mysterious death, Rebecca Hunter vows to expose the man she believes responsible: Mr. Lewis Browning—known by the locals as the Midnight Devil and by Rebecca as her new guardian.
Summoned to his reclusive country estate to await her London season, Rebecca plans her own secret investigation among the darkened corridors of the mysterious Greybourne Hall. Yet Lewis Browning is not as she once imagined, and his motivation is horribly unclear. Recurrent nightmares and Rebecca’s restless feelings are further complicated by the shadow of her mother’s prior descent into madness and wondering if she, too, will follow the same heartbreaking path.
Even as midnight rides, strange injuries, and further murders lead back to Mr. Browning, Rebecca can’t ignore the subtle turn of her heart. Has she developed feelings for the man she swore to see hanged? And moreover, can she trust him with her uncertain future?
