When Marlie agrees to attend a cadaver ball at Vanderbilt Medical School, she did not expect to actually see any cadavers. Or, that a strange apparition would issue her a chilling message.
Despite the cadaver's warning, Marlie is married a year later to Tennessee State Senator, Daniel Cannon, and living in a plantation-style mansion with two step sons. Add to the mix her growing suspicion that something is amiss with the death of Daniel’s first wife, Gentry; and newlywed Marlie is definitely in over her pretty Yankee head.
What begins as an innocent inquiry into her new husband’s clouded past, ends with Marlie in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy.
A modern twist on the classic Gothic romance novels of Rebecca and Jane Eyre, Replacing Gentry follows Marlie’s precarious journey as she learns the truth about the man she married.
Okay, this book rocks. Seriously. The first thing I loved about it was the cover, followed by Julie Ford's brilliant writing style, followed by the story. These days, I don't get pulled into stories as easily as I used to, but this one drew me in right away. For the first time in a very long time, I found myself reading when I should have been folding laundry and staying up way too late when I should have been sleeping. I can't tell you how impressed I was with both the writing and the intriguing plot. This was my first book of Julie's and definitely not my last. I really REALLY loved this one.
Replacing Gentry will be released on April 9th
