Jaime Jo Wright is a master at split time stories and an expert at crafting novels with Gothic mystery! I love her writing as she carefully reveals parts of the story in such perfect timing that it literally makes me go “ahhh” every time a secret is divulged and the plot comes together perfectly. This story had bits of spooky elements but I loved how the explanations came together rationally by the end. But I especially appreciated the author not shying away from difficult topics: there is a character with autism and a character who struggles with depression and suicidality. She handles these circumstances so well and gives me a glimpse into these very real struggles. I applaud her tackling these topics! The characters have so many levels and are complex. It is easy to lose track of time as you get involved in the story and invested in these characters. I loved every part of this book. Jaime Jo Wright once again showed me why she is one of my very favorite authors! I highly recommend this novel!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ( )

As I started reading this time slip novel, I was reminded of the Adams family home with its unique residences and the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest as the nurses cared for its colorful array of patients. Kailey Gibson gets a job as a nurse’s aide at the Foxglove Manor. She arrives with her autistic brother, Jude. Kailey and her brother are there to make sense of childhood memories at the manor. She is trying to get peace over her haunting dreams. Kailey says, “How was one supposed to respond to a story that sounded like a children’s bedtime tale meets the darker elements of the Brothers Grimm?” It was hard to navigate the way but, she had to find out what was really hidden in the Manor,and what does it have to do with a deceased child and Confederate treasure? Kailey is determined to get to the truth, no matter the cost.

This is a complex, creepy story filled with crazy twists, turns, and hidden secrets. Of course, Kailey had to look for things in the shadows of night because she worked during the day. Each chapter leads readers closer and closer to figuring out the secrets. This is a suspenseful tale that has the main characters trying to unravel a conspiracy, piece together and understand a betrayal, and it reveals the greed of desperate people. Themes and issues running through the story are that of mental health, substance abuse, autism, suicide, and Alzheimer’s. This author pens a unique story you will not soon forget. It is a memorable read and one that would work well for your next book club pick. The author includes nine questions to help create a lively discussion.

Wow, Jaime Jo Wright has done it again. With its relatable characters, interesting history, perfect setting, and eerie undertones, On the Cliffs of Foxglove Manor is a book you will simultaneously want to set aside to digest everything that’s happening and not want to put down until the mystery is solved.

Let’s just start with Adria and Kailey—two women living more than a century apart who are embroiled in the mystery surrounding Foxglove Manor. They both have such purpose to this story and each of their threads enhances the other ones. Even the people who surround them are there for a purpose. And the romance? Subtle at first but written in such a way that it builds with the story, so the tension is even more taut.

And I cannot go without mentioning Kailey’s brother Jude. Wright described him and his challenges in such a way that readers see his strengths and the way Kailey loves him instead of his challenges.
There is so much more to this book that I could talk about, but I also don’t want to give anything away. You’ll have to pick up a coy and read it for your self to discover the brilliance that is unique to Wright’s books. ( )

I loved this story. This book goes from past to present in a fantastic way. I never got lost as to what time period or what people should be in the time period. I loved the idea that there was a ghost in this home and I loved all the secrets that were needed to be learned to solve the mystery of a possible treasure that needed to be found. I loved Adria and Kailey. This story handles someone with a disability with lots of compassion. I love the emotions in the story. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

A chilling dual-timeline tale of secrets, treasure, betrayal, and love.

Kailey Gibson returns to Foxglove Manor, a place that holds the key to her painful childhood, alongside her brother Jude who has a brilliant mind for pattern and sequences.

In 1885 Adria Fontaine, at war with her own demons, has been sentenced to Foxglove Manor to search for her infamous father's stolen treasure. But an uneasy presence hangs over the manor, can she escape the darkness with her life?

A highly entertaining and deliciously gothic timeslip novel that skillfully weaves together dual timelines centering around the enigmatic Foxglove Manor which in the present day has been turned into an old folk's home. This book's skillful twists had me guessing until the end, I didn't want to put it down! Mr. Crayne is the perfect tortured hero, noble in an unconventional way, amidst fighting for his own soul, I never thought that I would find myself liking him so much!

Kailey is a strong heroine, she has had to be. I loved her relationship with her brother, Jude, how she is protective of him and sees him as an equal when others don't. Jude is a brilliant man who sees things that others can't, making sense out of chaos.

The author did an excellent job throughout of dealing with difficult topics like addiction, suicide, trauma, as well as questioning and doubting. Axel is a man of few words, but strong faith and I liked how he was there for Kailey throughout their ordeal.

Overall, a beautiful, twisting and at times chillingly gothic tale of greed and secrets. Nobody does this genre like Jaime Jo Wright, who had me equally engaged in both of the timelines and hanging on tight trying to make the connections. A brilliant tale of murder and mystery, On the Cliffs of Foxglove Manor. Highly recommend!
