The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor
by Amy M. Reade

The restoration talk was fascinating and I loved learning about not only the grand ballrooms but the slave quarters as well. I enjoyed watching Carleigh try to navigate work while also finding time for her daughter …

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…

Great mixture of mystery, paranormal and romance.

I love Charleston and the South Carolina, how I wish I could visit Peppernell Manor or an old plantation house like this. This novel has been an exciting journey into the secrets of this house and its owners.

Synopsis:

“Do you know what stories Sarah could tell you about the things that happened in these little cabins? They’d curl that pretty red hair of yours.”

Outside of Charleston, South Carolina, beyond hanging curtains of Spanish moss, at the end of a shaded tunnel of overarching oaks, stands the antebellum mansion of Peppernell Manor in all its faded grandeur. At the request of her friend Evie Peppernell, recently divorced Carleigh Warner and her young daughter Lucy have come to the plantation house to refurbish the interior. 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…
