Synopsis:

It’s a happy time for Sloan Trent and Jane Everett. What could be happier than the event of their wedding? Their Krewe friends will all be there, and the event will take place in a medieval castle transported brick by brick to the New England coast. Everyone is festive and thrilled . . . until the priest turns up dead just hours before the nuptials.

Jane and Sloan must find the truth behind the man and the murder—the secrets of the living and the dead—before they find themselves bound for eternity—not in wedded bliss but in the darkness of an historical wrong and their own brutal deaths.

 

My review:

Crimson Twilight is the second novella in the 1,001 Dark Nights Series as well as part of Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunter series.  This novella is packed with suspense from the very first page and I loved it!

What starts out as a wedding trip filled with friends, joy and happy times ahead for Sloan and Jane quickly turns into anything but.  The priest scheduled to perform their ceremony winds up dead at the bottom of the castle staircase and their dreams of wedded bliss are postponed as a murder investigation begins.  But, like all things involving the Krewes, this is anything but a routine investigation.  Talk of castle ghosts and wedding curses will turn this situation into a who-done-it involving the living and the dead.

Don’t let this story being novella length fool you…the amount of mystery and suspense packed into these pages was divine.  From the very beginning we are treated to a murder mystery involving ghosts of an unlucky couple set to wed in this very castle many years ago, who unfortunately never got the chance. I wasn’t sure what to believe.  Could an apparition really be responsible for murder?  Could it be a member of the castle staff? With so many possibilities, I was kept on the edge of my seat until the very end.  Sloan and Jane work so well together both as investigators and as a couple.  Their tender moments amidst the murder inquiry were a bright spot in the darkness.  Also woven into the mystery is the beautiful love story of John and Elizabeth.  The ghostly couple who never got the chance to wed.   Their story added another layer to Crimson Twilight that I truly enjoyed.

Overall, this was a truly entertaining and enjoyable read with an exciting and thrilling ending.  Thank you, Heather, for a fantastic read!
