Emily Carpenter has written quite a few books and has a healthy following of dedicated fans around the mystery genre. I have yet to read one of her books but this author has been on my radar for quite some time.
This book might be her best yet judging from what early reviews have said and truth be told, this one sounds full of Gothic goodness and suspense that I rearranged my review schedule to fit in a review a little later on this fall!
Today thought, I am sharing all the info with you guys so that you too can pick up a copy and add it to your TBR. Fans of mysteries and rich Gothic atmosphere will want this one on their radar for sure!

Dove Jarrod was a renowned evangelist and faith healer. Only her granddaughter, Eve Candler, knows that Dove was a con artist. In the eight years since Dove’s death, Eve has maintained Dove’s charitable foundation—and her lies. But just as a documentary team wraps up a shoot about the miracle worker, Eve is assaulted by a vengeful stranger intent on exposing what could be Dove’s darkest secret: murder…
Tuscaloosa, 1934: a wily young orphan escapes the psychiatric hospital where she was born.
