Book Review - Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Davidson Politano

Aurelie Harcourt has only known life behind bars in a debtor's prison. When her father dies suddenly, he left his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll and his wealthy family. With nowhere to go, Aurelie decides to go live with her father's family, but is met with resentment. She decides to finish her father's serial novel and uses her family members in the novel, but writes about them in an unflattering way. While searching for her missing mother, Aurelie discovers a few other buried family secrets? Will Aurelie be able to find her mother? Will she be able to keep her identity a secret?

I like that the novel had a bit of a Gothic romance theme, but I felt the story was dragging on for a bit. A few pages there wasn't much going on and by the time the book started picking up, I wasn't really interested anymore. The ending had a few twists which I didn't see coming. I would be interested in reading more works by the author.

**Disclosure - I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest opinion**
