Witty, secluded Mary is reeling after her father, Trentwood, passes away and returns in ghostly form. Despite the ghost's constant prodding, Mary continues to live in their aging home with only her aunt and their servants for company. But their quiet manor house carries secrets even from Mary and Trentwood. When Hartwell, a London lawyer, arrives at their doorstep claiming someone in the house is blackmailing his sister, Mary stumbles into a mystery that forces her to revisit memories and rethink her future. As Mary and Hartwell seek the blackmailer, each learns about the importance of opening one's heart to trust and betrayal. Haunting Miss Trentwood is a light gothic tale-Legend of Sleepy Hollow meets Casper-written from varied perspectives. Readers will be entertained by bright dialogue and encouraged to reflect on the universal themes of dealing with parents and disappointing relationships, and learning to love again.
