"In 1883, the Lady Jenny Gallagher, age 23, died suddenly at her home of Deeprath Castle, deep in the Irish countryside. Though her death was ruled an accident, the precise circumstances are unknown. In 1992, Cillian Gallagher and his beautiful wife Lily were found dead within the castle walls. A suicide/murder? Or two murders? In 2015, Carragh Ryan is offered the job of taking an inventory of the vast library at Deeprath Castle. A great lover of books, Carragh can't resist the opportunity to gain access to the historic collection. But what she finds at the castle--and in its enigmatic heir, Aidan Gallagher--leads Carragh ever deeper into the heart of an ancient and sinister family secret."-- Provided by publisher.
In the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland, Deeprath Castle is the home of the Darkling Bride, a local legend of a sultry and dangerous woman from long ago whose wrath continues to haunt the castle. When the estate is slated to become a public trust, scholar Carragh Ryan is hired to take inventory of its historic library. Two decades ago the parents of Aidan, the current Viscount Gallagher, died violently at Deeprath... and the case was never closed. Were their deaths related to that of Lady Jenny Gallagher, who died at Deeprath a century before under mysterious circumstances? As secrets emerge from the shadows and Carragh gets closer to answers-- and to Aidan-- will she be the Darkling Bride's next victim?

The Darkling Bride is a dark and complex family mystery unraveled across several generations. I thoroughly enjoyed the strong characters, ghostly whispers, and clues from the past.
