Who do you trust when everyone around you has secrets?
Stephanie Cooper is visiting her English grandmother in the village of Carlswick before starting her university studies at Oxford in this romantic suspense novel – the first book in The Carlswick Mysteries, a young adult mystery series.
Her fateful meeting with James Knox, guitarist for indie band The Fury, sets off a chain of events. A family feud dating back to World War II threatens to keep them apart and the return of Stephanie’s erstwhile boyfriend Sam only adds fuel to the mix.
As Stephanie delves into the mysterious circumstances surrounding her great-aunt’s death, she uncovers the secrets and deceptions of a previous generation. But someone does not want her to discover the truth about either family’s past and that someone may kill to stop her.
However great the danger, Stephanie knows that she must uncover the secrets that lie beneath the ancient roof of Knox Manor.
