Scarborough Fair by Margarita Morris
I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
In 1899 young Alice is put into a Scarborough mental institution against her will. In 2016 Rose goes on a Summer Holiday to visit her grandmother in Scarborough and while there discovers not only a new love, but also a mystery involving her Great, great, grandmother and the woman she works for who mysteriously disappears.
Told in alternating times this YA Romance/Historical novel is not only a quick, but at times, an exciting read. With action and mysteries happening in both times the author weaves an intricate tale of poor choices and betrayals which span generations.
I would recommend this book to YA, adult fiction, and mystery lovers as it would please all readers. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the next chapter in this story.
I am really enjoying being a part of Hidden Gems. Of the dozen books I’ve read there have only been a couple I was vaguely disappointed in so far. If you are an avid reader and like writing reviews, you should really check it out.
Yesterday was a shop till you drop day and I barely got any reading done. Today I devoured this book and think I just might plan a 24 Hour Read-A-Thon soon as I am still a bit behind in my reading goals for the year (crazy I know, but it’s an obsession).
My husband and I are headed out to the movies tonight to see one of the many films we currently wish to see. We both got a movie pass and it makes going out to the movies much more affordable. If you are interested in reading about my other obsession, take a look at my other blog, My Fantastic Film Obsession, which I just started.
Until next time, Good Night and Good Reading.
