When Marlie agrees to attend a cadaver ball at Vanderbilt Medical School, she did not expect to actually see any cadavers. Or, that a strange apparition would issue her a chilling message.
Despite the cadaver's warning, Marlie is married a year later to Tennessee State Senator, Daniel Cannon, and living in a plantation-style mansion with two step sons. Add to the mix her growing suspicion that something is amiss with the death of Daniel’s first wife, Gentry; and newlywed Marlie is definitely in over her pretty Yankee head.
What begins as an innocent inquiry into her new husband’s clouded past, ends with Marlie in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy.
A modern twist on the classic Gothic romance novels of Rebecca and Jane Eyre, Replacing Gentry follows Marlie’s precarious journey as she learns the truth about the man she married.

I had a bit of a hard time getting into this one, but once you do. It is very action packed, and you never see what is coming next.
When a young woman, Marlie, falls for a handsome Senator from TN, she doesn't realize what she is getting into. Some things were out in the open, like 15 year old twin step-sons. You will chuckle at how she deals with them.
Her over powering new Sister-In-Law, Cooper. I think I would have locked the doors. Then there is Cooper's husband!! When you think you know what is going to happen....nope! Some of it is so very scary, be ready for a chilling ride. The saying "I see dead people", rather applies here, or not?
The story is told from Marlie's perspective, and I wouldn't trade places with her. If you enjoy action mysteries...enjoy!
