    I loved this one! Just like in the Witch of Willow Hall, this book has just the right amount of creepy mystery to keep me guessing and turning pages. Set in 1840?s Maine, I loved the dark feel of the story, and yet for a historical fiction the book reads so quickly and effortlessly, ...

    Basically, I will credit this book with restoring my faith in books. Granted my string of mediocre reads was short-lived (like 4 books), but still. Wowza. I read Hester Fox?s first novel, The Witch of Willow Hall last year and adored it. There was no way I could refuse the chance to ...

    I loved this one! Just like in the Witch of Willow Hall, this book has just the right amount of creepy mystery to keep me guessing and turning pages. Set in 1840?s Maine, I loved the dark feel of the story, and yet for a historical fiction the book reads so quickly and effortlessly, ...

    Basically, I will credit this book with restoring my faith in books. Granted my string of mediocre reads was short-lived (like 4 books), but still. Wowza. I read Hester Fox?s first novel, The Witch of Willow Hall last year and adored it. There was no way I could refuse the chance to ...

    I was sold a fake bill of goods and I think this book suffers from a personality disorder. I think this book really, really wants to be a dark, creepy tale of witchcraft and strangeness (which is how the book blurb sold it to me), but somehow a silly romance - that honestly felt a bit ...

    This is another excellent romantic, Gothic suspense novel from Hester Fox, who made her debut in 2018 with THE WITCH OF WILLOW HALL. Fans of that novel will not be disappointed in this sophomore offering, as PALE HARBOR continues to show off the author's skills in setting what I would ...

    I enjoyed The Witch of Willow Hall and was eagerly awaiting the release of The Widow of Pale Harbor. I am happy to say that this book did not disappoint. The Widow of Pale Harbor is an intriguing mix of an atmospheric Gothic mystery and a swoony romance. It's also a perfect book to cur...

    I read the the author's debut novel, The Witch of Willow Hall, last year, and really enjoyed it, so when I had the chance to receive an ARC of The Widow of Pale Harbour, I jumped at the chance. Second novels can be a bit hiss and miss, but I'm very happy to report that this was not the...

    I loved everything about this book! The nuanced characters, lush setting, slow burning romance, and deftly plotted mystery kept me up late turning the pages. I already can?t wait for this author?s next book. ...

    I was expecting a mysterious gothic masterpiece and what I actually got was a historical romance with some mystery thrown in. Nothing wrong with that at all but I felt the blurb here was a tad misleading. So Sophronia Carver is a young widow who lives in Carver castle in the town...

    Sophronia Carver never felt welcome y the people of Pale Harbour. Her husband was cruel and when he died, the local people thought that she had murdered him. They even think that she might be a witch. Then strange things start to happen and the locals believe Sophronia is behind it all...

    Even the title sounds dark and a little ominous. THE WIDOW OF PALE HARBOR by Hester Fox is a well-crafted historical tale with a touch of the paranormal, characters haunted by the ghosts of their pasts and small town gossip that have doomed one young widow to be a pariah. When Gabri...

    I loved this one! Just like in the Witch of Willow Hall, this book has just the right amount of creepy mystery to keep me guessing and turning pages. Set in 1840?s Maine, I loved the dark feel of the story, and yet for a historical fiction the book reads so quickly and effortlessly, ...

    Basically, I will credit this book with restoring my faith in books. Granted my string of mediocre reads was short-lived (like 4 books), but still. Wowza. I read Hester Fox?s first novel, The Witch of Willow Hall last year and adored it. There was no way I could refuse the chance to ...

    I was sold a fake bill of goods and I think this book suffers from a personality disorder. I think this book really, really wants to be a dark, creepy tale of witchcraft and strangeness (which is how the book blurb sold it to me), but somehow a silly romance - that honestly felt a bit ...

    This is another excellent romantic, Gothic suspense novel from Hester Fox, who made her debut in 2018 with THE WITCH OF WILLOW HALL. Fans of that novel will not be disappointed in this sophomore offering, as PALE HARBOR continues to show off the author's skills in setting what I would ...

    I read the the author's debut novel, The Witch of Willow Hall, last year, and really enjoyed it, so when I had the chance to receive an ARC of The Widow of Pale Harbour, I jumped at the chance. Second novels can be a bit hiss and miss, but I'm very happy to report that this was not the...
