Wynnedower, an old scary decaying mansion in Virginia, overlooking the wooded banks of a river; a moody mysterious darkly handsome owner, and a young woman looking for her missing brother collide in this novel by Grace Greene. Rachel and Jack only have one thing in common and that is because they both have had too much responsibility placed on them since childhood: Rachel's is because she, and her brother, were orphaned, and Jack's is his family legacy and the decaying mansion. Wynnedower has all the right ingredients for a mystery romance with a touch of Gothic flavor. Personally, I especially liked the family connection to the art world. This is the first book I've read by Grace Greene. I've noticed that she has other enticing novels in this genre, which I'll need to check out. I'm rating it 4 stars because the writing could have been a tiny bit more polished: but I couldn't wait to see what would happen next to the characters...I'm already casting their parts in my mental movie. I read this on my kindle, and heard about it on FB through other authors.
About This Item
From the award-winning author of Beach Rental and Kincaid's Hope
Rachel Sevier, a lonely thirty-two year old inventory specialist, travels to Wynnedower Mansion in Virginia to find her brother who has stopped returning her calls. Instead, she finds Jack Wynne, the mansion's bad-tempered owner. He isn't happy to meet her. When her brother took off without notice, he left Jack in a lurch.
Jack has his own plans. He's tired of being responsible for everyone and everything and wants nothing more than to shake his obligations, including the old mansion. The last thing he needs is someone who'll complicate his life further, but he agrees to allow Rachel to stay while she waits for her brother to return.
At Wynnedower, Rachel becomes curious about the house and its owner. If rumors are true, the means to save Wynnedower Mansion from demolition are hidden within its walls, but the other inhabitants of Wynnedower have agendas, too. Not only may Wynnedower's treasure be stolen, but also the life of its arrogant master unless Rachel can save them all.

Wynnedower, an old sc...
I really did not care ...
I really did not care for this book, as was so long and drawn out. No real plot and so boring. Rachel Sevier, a thirty-two year old inventory specialist, travels to Wynnedower Mansion in Virginia to find her brother who has stopped returning her calls. Instead, she finds Jack Wynne, the mansion's bad-tempered owner who is an artist in secret. Everything is secretive and strange from the cook, May to the hidden away sister, Helene and two other guys hanging around. The entire book this boring gal Rachel is at this house, trying to find the secrets of some treasurers and keep away intruders, while doing inventory in the attic and posing for Jack's paintings while she waits for her brother. A little to slow for me; however, love Beach Rental and Beach Winds (her other two books).
