"My father was a gambler, my mother an alcoholic. I can see ghosts. And now my sister is dead." Set in the early 1800's, 19-year-old Lizzie Dawson is betrothed to Lord Blountford of Sussex, a man old enough to be her grandfather, to help pay off her father's gambling debts. What's worse is that he's been married before, and his last wife was Esme, Lizzie's older sister. The rural Sussex estate that belongs to her future husband is crawling with ghosts belonging to Lord Blountford's deceased wives. And they won't leave her alone. Then there's Charles Blountford, the aloof and tortured ex-soldier who seems desperate to speak to Lizzie and yet turns cold in the presence of his uncle. But everyone in the house has secrets. Even Lizzie. Not only does she need to solve the mysteries of the dead, she now also has to work out how to help the still living before she lands up in a marriage she cannot escape, following in her sister's footsteps. "Like Pride & Prejudice, but with murder, adultery and ghosts..."
