SYNOPSIS

The Vanishing At Loxby Manor takes place in Kent, England during the dark and distant days of the Regency Period (1811-1820). Charity Halliwell returns to Loxby Manor following a 5 year absence. Full of trepidation, she is hiding a personal secret and anticipating meeting Piers Cavenanagh again. Piers was her former love interest in whom she still holds feelings of unrequited love. 

Filled with tragedy, drama, and suspense, the tale revolves around Charity and Piers and their none reciprocated romance. Charity returns to a world filled with secrets, an elite society, and the disappearance of a beautiful, flirty but popular old friend, Seline. Seline vanishes the same evening Charity arrived at Loxby. Her disappearance spawns a plethora of theories. Nothing is as it seems, and Charity and Piers unite in an attempt to discover the truth. 

NARRATOR

The narration by Laura Kirman complimented and enhanced the listening pleasure. Her timing, intonation, pace, volume, and tone definitely provided a superior experience to simply reading a text version. Kirkman managed to invoke strong character personalities with her vocal range, cadence and inflection.

CONCLUSION

The Vanishing At Loxby Manor is filled with twits and turns worthy of a Sherlock Holmes mystery. Wilson’s practiced writing skills provide a cast of fully formed characters who inhabit an all too real world.  The plot twists compliment the gothic feel of the story and together create a perfect symphony. The narrative is so well formed as to conceal the details of the mystery until late into the book. It is a compelling love story wrapped in a seemingly elusive mystery. Wilson has managed to combine the multiple story threads so skillfully that it is difficult to see the surprising outcome. Filled with equal amounts of: dark, dread, political intrigue, secret society, and the potential for romance; The Vanishing At Loxby Manor exceeds all expectations. The culmination of the elaborate plot ends in a crescendo of action and some unforeseen revelations with a genuinely surprising outcome.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
