REVIEWS:
"This is one of my favourite books I’ve read this year... I can’t praise it enough... The real stand out for this was the writing and the character voice." ~ The Moonlight Library

"The writing in The Wrong Girl was beautiful. There were so many quotes that I wanted to write down, and keep... The world building, and the plot drew me in from the get go, and didn’t falter until the last sentence." ~ Books For A Delicate Eternity

"This was one fantastic read! A really fascinating story which I couldn't put down, so this is easily a 5 stars." ~ Tea Party Princess

DESCRIPTION:
It's customary for Gothic romance novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah Smith just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic and the companion to an earl's daughter with a strange affliction of her own, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head and food in her belly when so many orphans starve on the streets. Yet freedom is something Hannah longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of kidnapping.

Taken by handsome Jack Langley to a place known as Freak House, she finds herself under the same roof as a mad scientist, his niece, a mute servant and Jack, a fire starter with a mysterious past. They assure Hannah she is not a prisoner and that they want to help her. The problem is, they think she's the earl's daughter. What will they do when they discover they took the wrong girl?

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

When I set out to write the Freak House series, I wanted to put my own spin on the Gothic novels of the Victorian era. I've always loved their creepiness, the secrets, and the romance too, but I wanted to see the story from the perspective of the character that is often present but never the heroine - the girl kept in the attic.

I hope you'll enjoy this trilogy as much as I enjoyed writing it.

  • Question!

    This was a pretty good book, (just a little more romance would've been nice), however, the girl on the cover looks identical to the girl on the cover of Forbidden by Amy Milles (I think that's how it was spelled) and I was just wondering why.
  • Excellent; I want more

    I couldn't put it down, even attempting to keep reading while making dinner, winning myself a couple minor burns & small cuts. And lackluster reviews of said dinner. So, I literally suffered injury to myself & my pride to just keep reading. Definitely intriguing and the ending left me thirsty for more.

    This book was pretty great. At first it wasn't too interesting, but once it gets to the later chapters it starts having different plot twists that are exciting to watch play out. If you're looking for a shorter paranormal book to read, I suggest this. Even though I would still likes some answers to this story, I might be fine just not knowing. But overall, it's a great book, there's also a little bit of tiny romance in it. 😏😘

    Amazing style and a wonderful depiction of the times. Sensationally written with beautiful diction. I would give it a 4.5 if I could find the option. It has a distinct classical "Pride and Prejudice" feel to it, mixed with a sense of mystery and paranormality. Incredibly original and excitingly unpredictable. Near perfect.
