MASQUERADE AT MIDDLECREST ABBEY by Abigail Wilson, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

When I saw the lovely cover of Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey, I knew I had to read the story. With a colorful, well-developed cast of characters and an intriguing premise, I was hooked from the first page. Lord Torrington and Elizabeth Cantrell were both endearing, and I enjoyed the interactions between them. Of course, baby Isaac added an extra helping of cuteness.
The story was well-paced, and the mystery involved kept me guessing to the end. Filled with intrigue, suspense, adventure, and a dose of romance, this compelling book has a little of everything and should captivate those who enjoy well-written Regency tales. I’m eagerly awaiting the next Abigail Wilson story.

BackCover Blurb:
In this new Regency romance, a young unwed mother must protect her heart from the charms of her convenient new husband, Lord Torrington. She is not, however, prepared to protect her life.

When the widowed Lord Torrington agreed to spy for the crown, he never planned to impersonate a highwayman, let alone rob the wrong carriage. Stranded on the road with an unconscious young woman, he is forced to propose marriage to protect his identity and her reputation, as well as his dangerous mission.

Trapped not only by her duty to her country but also by her limited options as an unwed mother, Miss Elizabeth Cantrell and her infant son are whisked away to Middlecrest Abbey by none other than the elder brother of her son’s absent father. There she is met by Torrington’s beautiful grown daughters, a vicious murder, and an urgent hunt for the missing intelligence that could turn the war with France. Meanwhile she must convince everyone that her marriage is a genuine love match if her new husband has any hope of uncovering the enemy.

Determined to keep her son’s true identity a secret, Elizabeth will need to remain one step ahead of her fragile heart, her uncertain future, and the relentless fiend bent on her new family’s ruin.
