Product Description:

The year is 1928. Kate Moore is looking for a way out of the poverty and violence of her childhood. When a chance encounter on a transatlantic ocean liner brings her face-to-face with the handsome heir to a Chicago fortune, she thinks she may have found her escape—as long as she can keep her past concealed.

After exchanging wedding vows, Kate quickly discovers that something isn’t quite right with her husband—or her new family. As Mrs. Matthew Lemont, she must contend with her husband’s disturbing past, his domineering mother, and his overly close sister. Isolated at Lakecrest, the sprawling, secluded Lemont estate, she searches desperately for clues to Matthew’s terrors, which she suspects stem from the mysterious disappearance of his aunt years before. As Kate stumbles deeper into a maze of family secrets, she begins to question everyone’s sanity—especially her own. But just how far will she go to break free of this family’s twisted past?



When opportunity – in the person of Matthew Lemont – knocks, Kate Moore immediately throws open the door. Meeting wealthy, handsome Matthew on board the RMS Franconia presents Kate with just the ticket she needs to escape a lifetime of drudgery and poverty. Despite the fact that some other people on board the ship warn her that the Lemont family has a somewhat unsavory reputation, Kate does everything she can to nurture their flirtatious first encounter into a surprise, sudden marriage proposal from Matthew. However, upon arriving at Lakecrest, the grand Lemont family estate just outside Chicago, Kate begins to think there might be something to those rumors when she learns that not only did Matthew’s aunt Cecily vanish one day, but also that everyone else at Lakecrest seems to be keeping at least one secret from her.

Fans of good, old-fashioned gothic romances will be delighted to discover Blackwell’s latest expertly crafted novel. From the very first page, Blackwell deftly plays homage to the literary grand doyenne of the genre – Daphne Du Maurier’s classic Rebecca - with her mesmerizing tale of a penniless nobody, who marries a wealthy scion only to discover he has a past that could prove deadly. But Blackwell also rings some of her own clever changes into the story by not only giving her heroine a name, but also by giving Kate a great deal more daring and nerve when it ultimately comes to securing her own future than the woman who married Max de Winter. Elegantly written and deftly plotted, In the Shadow of Lakecrest is a rare treat.
