Too Good to Be True by Kristen Ashley ~ Book Review


Heiress Daphne Ryan is uncertain about spending a week at the sprawling country estate of the family of her sister’s boyfriend. For starters, she doesn’t get along with her sister. Then there’s the fact his family is old, wealthy aristocracy, and Daphne’s from brash, new American money.

Mostly, it’s that everyone knows Duncroft House is haunted by the ghost of a 1920s film star who died there. Deemed an accident, for nearly a century, people are sure it was murder.

Daphne doesn’t like scary things, say…haunted houses. She likes it less when strange things start happening to her when she arrives.

But she finds she has a surprising ally.

Ian Alcott, the heir to the earldom, is rich, gorgeous and just as concerned about the frightening things that keep befalling Daphne at his ancestral family home. As he moves to protect her, Daphne finds he’s also funny, kind and sexy as hell.

Indeed, he just might be too good to be true.

Soooo good!

I have been a fan of Kristen Ashley's books for many years. She has created so many books that I LOVE, including this one. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE grabbed me from the first page and didn't let me go for one second. It was filled with so much suspense, family drama, and HEAT.

Daphne Ryan has been requested at Duncroft House for a week to meet her sister, Portia's boyfriend. What ever happened to meeting the family over a nice dinner? Well, the Alcotts aren't your regular family, and Duncroft House isn't just a house...there are claims that it's a Haunted one, which is not something Daphne is a fan of. Scary isn't her thing. So when things start happening at the house while she's there, let's say it's not good.

Ian Alcott, the heir to the earldom, the brother of David - Portia's boyfriend, and who becomes the love interest of Daphne, was excellent. I love how he was with Daphne when things started happening in the house, and he sees how freaked out she is about everything. He was not only a comforting presence but also wanted to get to the bottom of all the mysterious happenings since they all seemed aimed at only Daphne.

This book had a bit of a historic taste, and I think it has much to do with it taking place in England. It reminded me of the old BBC movies and a game of clue wrapped up into one fantastic read.

I recommend this book to Adult readers who enjoy STEAMY Contemporary Romances, Romantic Suspense Reads, Billionaire Romances, Forced Proximity Romances, or Family Drama Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
