It is every parent’s worst nightmare. Greer Dobbins’ daughter has been kidnapped—and spirited across the Atlantic to a hiding place in Scotland. Greer will do anything to find her, but the streets of Edinburgh hide a thousand secrets—including some she’d rather not face.
Art historian Dr. Greer Dobbins thought her ex-husband, Neill, had his gambling addiction under control. But in fact he was spiraling deeper and deeper into debt. When a group of shady lenders threatens to harm the divorced couple’s five-year-old daughter if he doesn’t pay up, a desperate Neill abducts the girl and flees to his native Scotland. Though the trail seems cold, Greer refuses to give up and embarks on a frantic search through the medieval alleys of Edinburgh—a city as beguiling as it is dangerous. But as the nightmare thickens with cryptic messages and a mysterious attack, Greer herself will become a target, along with everyone she holds dear.
From the very first page, we are thrown headlong into this story of lies, betrayal, and deception, and the fast-paced energy continues all the way through to the end. When Greer realises that her ex-husband Neil has taken their little girl and absconded to Scotland, she has never known fear like it. Determined to find them, she arrives in Edinburgh and begins the search. With the help of her sometimes infuriating sister, her sister's boyfriend, and a new acquaintance, nothing is going to stop Greer from rescuing her daughter. But they soon realise that this is a lot more complex and dangerous than they could ever believe. Will Greer ever see her little girl again? Can she truly trust those around her? And what has Neil's horrible family and the house on Candlewick Lane got to do with all of this? THE HOUSE ON CANDLEWICK LANE by Amy M. Reade brings the city and ambience of Edinburgh alive, and the story is a great blend of art, history, and mystery. At times I was frustrated with the main character of Greer, and at certain points the plot was a little unclear, but overall, I enjoyed this unusual mystery novel.
