The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor
by Amy M. Reade

The book has a fine sense of place, and captures the area outside Charleston very well. It was very interesting to read about the protagonist’s work restoring the interior of Peppernell Manor.

I enjoyed the fast pace of The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor, with twists and turns in the plot. The action is appropriately suspenseful and thrilling, with more than one perpetrator of evil deeds.
Amy Reade’s writing reminds me so much of Phyllis Whitney’s. This story sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go…

But the tall white columns and black shutters hide a dark history of slavery, violence, and greed. The ghost of a former slave is said to haunt the home, and Carleigh is told she disapproves of her restoration efforts. And beneath the polite hospitality of the Peppernell family lie simmering resentments and poisonous secrets that culminate in murder—and place Carleigh and her child in grave danger…
