Book Description

A haunting legend. An ominous curse. A search for a secret buried deep within the castle walls.

In 1870, orphaned Daisy François takes a position as housemaid at a Wisconsin castle to escape the horrors of her past life. There she finds a reclusive and eccentric Gothic authoress who hides tales more harrowing than the ones in her novels. As women disappear from the area and the eerie circumstances seem to parallel a local legend, Daisy is thrust into a web that could ultimately steal her sanity, if not her life.

In the present day, Cleo Clemmons is hired by the grandson of an American aristocratic family to help his grandmother face her hoarding in the dilapidated Castle Moreau. But when Cleo uncovers more than just the woman’s stash of collectibles, a century-old mystery and the dust of the old castle’s curse threaten to rise again . . . this time to leave no one alive to tell the sordid tale.

Award-winning author Jaime Jo Wright seamlessly weaves a dual-time tale of two women who must do all they can to seek the light amid the darkness shrouding Castle Moreau.

The Vanishing at Castle Moreau By Jaime Jo Wright, delights readers with its multi narrations and a heavy dose of gothic suspense. Once you start this book you won’t want to stop. It kept me completely immersed into the wee hours of the night.

1870 Orphaned Daisy Francois finally escapes her foster parents. She takes a position at a Midwest castle in Wisconsin. Set out to leave her traumatic past behind she finds herself faced with more terror. When the villagers devolve about the happenings of the woman near by, Daisy Francois realizes their is more to the eccentric reclusive mistress of the castle, who writes tales of suspense and murder. She decides to stay on because of her friendship with the mistress’s grandson.

Present Day Cleo Clemmons, is running from her family and the law. She takes a job hoping to stay in the shadows under the radar the debilitated Castle Moreau. Her job is to help Ora’s granddaughter Virgie deal with her hoarding problem. Cleo starts to experience strange unusual experiences.

As both women past and present experience eerie unsettling moments it would seem that Moreau-Tremblays are definitely hiding something. An excellent unputdownable read, with just enough spine tingling suspense mixed into a heartfelt message of regret and forgiveness. The authors seamless narration weaves the stories together and the twist are engaging. The perfect amount romance, along with a meaningful message adds so much to this engaging storyline.
