Mysterious. Magnificent. Creepy. Welcome to Rockford Manor.

"There's something hidden in the Maze." Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family's English country manor.

Haunted by her parents' deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin's untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.

All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion's aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself--and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?

"Take The Princess Diaries and add magic, murder and mystery, and you've got SUSPICION. A delightful read!"— Amy Plum, author of the of the international bestselling Die For Me series

"If 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

This was my first Alexandra Monir book, but it most certainly will not be my last! And although this did start off a bit slow, it certainly did not fall anything short of amazing!

This book is laced with mystery, romance, fantasy, and everything else you could hope for. The characters are also quite believable and the author took her time to research such aspects of British heritage and lineage as well as some of the slang and other details. 

There was also a plot twist that I didn't see coming. I suspected some things, but was pleasantly surprised at the end with the certain twist that comes into play. 

Overall, I am definitely pleased with the story, the characters and the overall story. I can't wait to pick up the author's next book.
