I am super excited to share my review with you for The Cursed Heir today on Blog Tour
Edinburgh 1896. At Alardyce House, the family are gathered to celebrate the engagement of the heir to the estate, Robert, to his childhood sweetheart. But what should be a precious memory for his mother Amy, is marred by darkness. For Robert’s biological father was a demon and a criminal, and now Robert is coming-of-age, disturbing reports are beginning to emerge about his behaviour.
Amy is torn between her love and loyalty to her son, her hope that she can save his soul, and her growing sense of dread that the streets of Edinburgh aren’t safe when Robert is in town. Meanwhile the increasing distance between Robert and his stepfather Henry threatens the peace of her loving marriage.
The Alardyce family is riven by secrets and scandal, but will this most cursed heir of all, be the one to ruin their reputation forever, or can the power of a mother’s love save them all?

Please note this book was previously published as Corruption of the Son.
I am a new fan of the author after reading The Gallowburn series. Oh how I love grit lit! I knew I had to give this series ago. Although being totally honest, I have to admit that historical crime has never been anything I’ve really read until recently when I read the first book in the series.
OH MY GOD what a book! We are transported back to the Victorian times. It sure has hell doesn’t disappoint it is dark, twisty and incredibly gritty! The book kicks off where the last one ended. So you need to read them in order.
I love that the author has taken her normal style of writing\genre and woven a story into the backdrop of 1896! Making me feel like I was there in the story. It is full of suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I seriously couldn’t put it down. I loved it that much I am definitely going to be reading more historical crime books.
This book is absolutely brilliant I cannot recommend it enough. Giving it all the stars! Try it, I guarantee you won’t regret it!
