When Marlie agrees to attend a cadaver ball at Vanderbilt Medical School, she did not expect to actually see any cadavers. Or, that a strange apparition would issue her a chilling message.
Despite the cadaver's warning, Marlie is married a year later to Tennessee State Senator, Daniel Cannon, and living in a plantation-style mansion with two step sons. Add to the mix her growing suspicion that something is amiss with the death of Daniel’s first wife, Gentry; and newlywed Marlie is definitely in over her pretty Yankee head.
What begins as an innocent inquiry into her new husband’s clouded past, ends with Marlie in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy.
A modern twist on the classic Gothic romance novels of Rebecca and Jane Eyre, Replacing Gentry follows Marlie’s precarious journey as she learns the truth about the man she married.
Replacing Gentry will be released on April 9th

Last year I read Julie N. Ford's romance, Countdown to Love, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was funny, charming and entertaining, so when I was given the chance to read an advance copy of Ford's new book, I jumped.
This book was totally different, which shows Ford's versatility. Sure, it has a little romance, but it also has suspense, ghosts and twists and turns all over the place. I actually got a little scared when I was reading it late at night, which is both an endorsement and a warning for future readers. You might want to save this one to read in the light of day.
I'm curious to see what Ford comes up with next. I'll definitely be reading it.
