"If Alfred Hitchcock had directed Downton Abbey, the result would have been this book. Alexandra Monir takes us on a gripping, nonstop thrill ride with just the right amount of supernatural and an ending that you definitely won't suspect. I devoured it in one sitting." —Jessica Brody, bestselling author of the Unremembered trilogy
"Take The Princess Diaries and add magic, murder and mystery, and you've got SUSPICION." —Amy Plum, author of the of the international bestselling Die For Me series
“There’s something hidden in the maze.”
Seventeen-year-old Imogen Rockford has never forgotten the last words her father said to her, before he, her mother, and the gardens of her family’s English country manor were consumed by a blazing fire.
For seven years, images of her parents’ death have haunted Imogen’s dreams even as she moved away and attempted to start over. But some attachments prove impossible to shake—including her love for her handsome former neighbor Sebastian Stanhope. When a letter arrives that forces Imogen to return to her family’s estate, she quickly discovers the dark secrets that her father warned her about. At their center is Imogen herself—and Sebastian, the boy she never stopped loving.
Combining spine-tingling mystery, romance, and unforgettable characters, Suspicion is an action-packed thrill ride.
"Intensely dramatic, fast-paced, and twisty, Monir’s mystery ticks every gothic suspense box. The combination of paranormal elements with a star-crossed romance between almost-royals should keep readers rapt." —Booklist
SUSPICION is a fast, fun, and thrilling read!
Received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
SUSPICION is a fast, fun, and thrilling read! I loved the author’s writing style and pacing–I wasn’t bored for a second. Loved the characters and the story. There were some great twist and turns, as well as a fantastic big reveal for the mystery. The perfect, quick stand-a-lone read for a rainy day. Highly recommend.
P.S. Can we talk about that GORGEOUS cover??? Drool…

An Excellent read... Love the unraveling of events and perfect way to twist and untwist a life and protect family secrets and a blooming love!
Mediocre at best
This book lacks a certain flow and contingency to it that most books have. There are things that easily confuse the reader, things that altogether probably should have been cut when edited, and others that should have been expanded upon. The plot feels forced as if the book had been on deadline and you realized a week before it was due that it actually needed to be written. If someone asked me if they should read it, I would rattle off some other suggestions instead, but if they had already read those, this would be a last resort.
