|Plot Summary of Shadows In The Mist|
|"Shadows In The Mist is the book I've been looking for. A mixture of Mary Stewart and Barbara Michaels, with a hint of Victoria Holt and even Jane Austen. I could not put it down. It is an excellent mystery with a wonderful romance and ghostly apparitions to enhance the suspense. The excitement is unrelenting and the ending is superb. I did not figure out who the culprit was until the bitter end. A hugely satisfying read!"
Victoria Hammel, Resident Scholar
