Go to http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Gatehouse Subtitle: Lady Eleanor Mysteries, Book 2 Author: Becca St. John Narrator: Mary Sarah Agliotta Format: Unabridged Length: 8 hrs and 18 mins Language: English Release date: 08-23-17 Publisher: Winterbourne Farm Publishing, LLC Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 1 votes Genres: Romance, Historical Publisher's Summary: A deaf aristocrat fights to protect all he loves from a killer he cannot hear Moments before the wedding, Christopher Sterry finds the groom, his twin brother, murdered. One would expect Christopher to become the next Earl of Longford. No one would be surprised if he married his twin's almost-bride, Helen Grove. She is, after all, his closest friend and confidante. Except Christopher is deaf in an inflexible world that believes a deaf mute is no better than a barbaric half-wit, unfit to be an earl and quite capable of murdering his brother. Helen waits at the altar while her groom lies murdered in the folly. But there is no time to mourn. Christopher is in danger and so, it appears, is she. Born to marry the earl of Longford, whoever that may be, Helen ignores her own risks and crosses into the line of fire to protect the man who holds her heart. Lady Eleanor solves crimes more thoroughly than any male magistrate. So when Christopher, her godson, is condemned without evidence, she sets out to prove both his innocence and his competence as earl. If she fails, Christopher will die...or be returned to an asylum worse than hell. Members Reviews: Only ok Mysteries are hard to construct. This one has some definite high spots; brilliant but deaf hero and Aunt Eleanor who is a marvelous amateur detective among the better aspects. I had the strong impression that the author had the basic storyline in mind and then she forced characters and events into that storyline. It felt choppy, swung a bit wild, and lacked consistency. I was particularly jarred by the over-the-top lifelong hatred exhibited by Edmund who then had an overnight inexplicable change of heart. It felt as if the author just needed that to happen so it did. Nothing in his earlier character development or plot forecast this. Because so many characters (and there were far too many characters) seemed "off," I had trouble engaging. I did not accept the circumstance of the beloved deaf son of a rich earl going to the Conservatory (asylum) and then basically abandoned and not checked on by a caring family who supposedly were disappointed that the 8 year old didn't write to them. Ridiculous but necessary to force the plot along. Also, the constant shifting references to the 7th earl, 8th earl, two live brothers who might become the next earl plus the changes in their names within the story is uncomfortable to deal with. The flow and believability were struggling in this book unlike the first in this series. I did not believe in the final wrap up either. I like real people and believable villians. Disappointed because I was looking forward to following this series. I gave the first one 5 stars. This probably deserves 2. Becca St. John.... Lady Eleanor at her best. Very exciting Read .Becca St. John. Know s how to keep her characters evolving. The novel is a wonderful mystery with more secret s ,twists and turn s,and unexpected truth s.
