Great pace with a twisted roller coaster of a plot. Kept me entrenched until the last word. A fast paced read that has me hooked for a sequel!

"There's something hidden in the maze." Seventeen-year-old Imogene 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 telling her that she's now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily excepts 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 inferno that killed her parents was no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself- and Sebastian, the English boy she has never stopped loving. Just what has Imogen walked into?
Combining spine-tingling mystery, powerful romance, and unforgettable characters, Suspicion is an action-packed thrill ride.
