The Death of Jane Lawrence is an engrossing Gothic Horror.
Jane is practical, with a mathematical mind, and her proposal to Augustine Lawrence is more of a business proposal than a romantic one. So, when he gives the condition that she never visit his family manor, she agrees without giving it much thought.
On their wedding night when her carriage has an accident during a storm, she finds herself with no other option, and shows up at the manor, finding a man very different from the one she married. As she stays, waiting for the roads to become safe, she starts to wonder whether there might be a sinister reason that Augustine wanted to keep her away, especially when she starts to see things in the manor at night, things that her mind tells her should not be possible.
This book is part Rebecca and part Crimson Peak, with a few surprises thrown in. I wasn’t expecting the book to take the direction it did, so if you’re looking for a lot of the unexpected in your horror, this could be for you.
