    Elodie Bright and Alexander Aldrich, Earl of Hartsford since his father had passed away, had been separated by circumstances for ten years – but Elodie’s return was meant to be. The night of the violent storm over Hartsford Hall, when the roof of the chapel collapsed and destroyed Georgiana Kerridge’s tomb marked the beginning and the end of dark mysteries and even darker secrets. Elodie had always had the uncanny ability to “see” spirits – a cat who’d been a resident; an old woman walking down Elodie Bright and Alexander Aldrich, Earl of Hartsford since his father had passed away, had been separated by circumstances for ten years – but Elodie’s return was meant to be. The night of the violent storm over Hartsford Hall, when the roof of the chapel collapsed and destroyed Georgiana Kerridge’s tomb marked the beginning and the end of dark mysteries and even darker secrets. Elodie had always had the uncanny ability to “see” spirits – a cat who’d been a resident; an old woman walking down the nearby lane; but it had never frightened her. But when both Elodie and Alex started to experience flashbacks, almost as if it was they themselves who were experiencing the events – the mystery of the ancestors of the Hall from the 1700s started to make itself clear. Georgiana had a secret past; a love so strong but one which was forbidden – and it was the guilt of another who was trying to make amends… Watch For Me by Moonlight is my first novel by Kirsty Ferry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Wonderfully written in both past and present day; set in England in the countryside of Suffolk, which I’ve never visited but could easily visualise – the characters of both Elodie and Alex were exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending Watch For Me by Moonlight highly, and will be looking for more by this author. With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my digital ARC to read and review.

A freak storm damages the tomb of one of the house's ancestors where it is discovered that the tomb is empty. The story unfolds in flashback and strange happenings to all living in the grounds. The flashbacks of the Georgian lovers run parallel to the modern day love story as Elodie and Alex attempt to re-build their relationship after a disastrous teenage fling.  The characters are perfectly written and so easy to imagine but I also really enjoyed the descriptions of the old house and grounds - it almost becomes another character. The writing is excellent with a really good pace and I love the way the two stories intertwine as Elodie and Alex race to solve the centuries old mystery.  Fantastic start to the new series and can't wait for the next one  Thanks to netgalley and Choc Lit for the free arc

    This is another fabulous supernatural read from Kirsty Ferry that I adored from start to finish! Elodie is returning to her past, a long way from her current high flying position in London, but it doesn't take her long to settle back into life in Hartsford. She teams up with her friend Alex who is in the process of trying to revitalise his childhood home, Hartsford Hall, into a tourist destination and bring life back to the old house and gardens, and raise some much needed funds!

After a storm devastates the local church, Elodie and Alex find the tomb of his ancestor, Georgina Kerridge, in ruins but that is not all they find, and the past soon becomes to materialise and we get the fascinating flashbacks to Georgianas' life through Elodie and her secrets are brought to life in amazing detail. I really enjoyed this novel! The set up and story line were fascinating and all the characters were extremely likable so you had instant empathy with their experiences. Great mix of the historical and romance genres - the perfect blend and not too OTT on the romance front which just felt natural. I thought it was beautifully written and captured the emotions so well. Really intriguing to delve into the past this way, through touching items and how history seemed to be repeating itself. A captivating read!! thankyou to the author and publishers for the advanced reading copy in return for a fair and honest review!

    When people ask me about my comfort read - you know, the kind of book you always enjoy, even if you're struggling with your reading - I have to say it must be a time slip novel. But I can be a bit fussy - those slips have to be really well handled, with both stories equally strong and engaging.

This book was simply perfect - two love stories that totally swept me up and away into another world, from the initial dramatic lightning strike and the dramatic discovery, and for as long as I was reading. The modern story is strong - a real historical mystery to be solved, and totally fascinating, with the attraction between Elodie and Alex providing a lovely frisson to the story. And as for the historical love story of Georgiana and Ben the highwayman - my goodness, I so loved it! The time slip moments were so perfectly done - triggered by objects and locations, totally believable, very original in the way they are accomplished. There were little touches in this book that really made me smile - the children in the nursery, the pushes and nudges from bony hands, the ghostly cat who doesn't need cat litter - and I really liked the way some of the historical "moments" leaked and overlapped a little into the present, so cleverly done. The characters in both stories are really well drawn - the romantic leads who you really care about, but also those around them, like Georgiana's horrendous and dysfunctional family. Hartsford Hall gives the whole book a wonderful sense of place, vividly described. The story is just excellent - an absorbing mystery, with moments of real drama and danger, and two moving love stories - and so very well told. And - although this is absolutely a stand-alone read - I really did like the appearances from people I recognised from Kirsty's Rossetti series. This is a series I'm really looking forward to revisiting - more please!

    I really enjoyed reading Kirsty’s Rossetti series, and hoped that she would write more in a different time. Now she has, and the eighteenth century, my favourite! This was a great start to the new series, both the hero and heroine in the two time frames were engaging, and the house and estate an interesting place to start the mystery of Alexander’s missing ancestor.

I did work out the end, but only just before it was revealed so it wasn’t spoiled for me. I also liked Alex’s sister. I am intrigued by the origin of the name Aldrich, which sounds Germanic to me, so I hope we learn more as we go on about this side of the family. Can’t recommend this one enough, and looking forward to the next volume. PS anyone else have Noyes’ The Highwayman stuck in their head now?!

The church where Georgiana is buried appears to have the most damage and it's not long before Elodie Bright comes tearing across from the cafe to see what's happened. There she finds her beautiful Georgiana's tomb has been severely damaged, but worse than that, the tomb where she spent most of her childhood, telling Georgians all her secrets, is empty, well, almost empty. Georgiana is not in there. She scrambles to the side while Alex tries to stop her and puts her hand down to see of she can feel anything. She comes back with something metal and very very cold..... She passes it shakily to Alex, who knows exactly what it is .... its Jasper's duelling pistol. Elodie suddenly finds herself in a completely different place .... she's zoned out .... She is seeing the life of Georgiana unfold right before her eyes. Georgiana and her brother Jasper are returning home when their carriage is stopped. Jasper, who is very partial to a drink clambers out to find out what is happening. On doing so, he falls oit of the cardiage into a drunken heap on the floor and passes out. They are being held up by a highway man but Georgiana is not aware of it and steps out to see what the problem is. Here she meets Highwayman Ben. She is encapsulated by the look of him and him in awe of what is in front of him. He invites Georgiana to take a stroll woth him and she agrees but not before making him lower his mask. She likes what she sees and follows him. Thinking of the harm he may inflict she pushes it to the back of her mind and focuses on this handsome man in front f her. After some time he insists on walking Georgiana back to the carriage to co time her journey but not before telling her to watch for him at moonlight in the same spot. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and found myself forming images of everyone and looking forward to what happened next for Alex and Elodie and Georgiana and Ben. I could even see this being made into a film, it was so real. Maybe that's my book reader head loving the story but hey, without dreamers .... we would be in a world with less books 😉 it was great to hear snippets from the Rosetti series, bringing Cori and Simon and Becky and Jon & Lissy and Stefano into the story effortlessly.

    This is my first Kirsty Ferry but I've always had a feeling I would like her books. I already had two of them on my TBR pile but thought I would give this one a try first.

It's romance through and through, and that's not always something I like too much of, but Watch for Me By Moonlight is a really lovely read. Elodie Bright has returned to Suffolk following a disastrous marriage and a successful career in London. Suffolk is where she grew up with Alex Aldrich, who has inherited the Earldom of Hartsford. Elodie has a gift - she sees people from the past - and she finds herself reliving the story of Alex's ancester, Georgiana, after a storm causes her tomb to be damaged. I thought this was a clever story. There were parts that I thought were inevitable but there were also surprises. I really enjoyed the love stories which I found to be beautifully written, tender and sweet. There are supernatural elements and Kirsty Ferry did a good job at putting them across so they were believable. I found it a fascinating strand of the book as we learned along with Elodie and Alex about his ancestors. It's time slip but with a difference as they experience almost first hand what the people in the past were experiencing. I particularly liked the historical aspects, not just the scenes set in the past but also the fact that Alex's home is Hartsford Hall, with all the history that goes with such a place. This is the first in the Hartsford mysteries but it also features, albeit quite loosely, characters from the Rossetti series of books. I thought it was a nice touch and when I get round to reading those books it will be interesting to spot the characters. All in all I found this book a pleasure to read. An easy one yes, but not lacking the substance needed to keep me interested in a romance novel.

Watch for me by Moonlight is a story about a homecoming and not just for one character but a few which intertwine their lives together both past and present bringing with it a trail of mystery, love, intrigue, wrongs put right and perhaps a lesson in chances and when to take them.

    "Watch For Me by Moonlight" is my first novel by Kirsty Ferry and it won't be my last. The storyline piqued my interest from the beginning. Not only is there something going on between Elodie and Alex, but there is also the mystery around Georgiana. These two stories are a great read on their own, but combined they make an even greater tale.

Elodie always loved the effigy on Georgiana’s tomb, fantasising a friendship between herself and the 18th century girl who died so young. When Alex and Elodie discover the damaged tomb they find it empty except for a key, bible, pistol and locket. Where could the body be? Elodie has always seen ghosts and the mystery begins to unravel in a series of visions especially when she touches items they’ve found. A handsome highwayman, a forbidden love, jealously, denial and a cover -up all make up the story of Hartsford Hall’s ancestors. Alex and Elodie find themselves tied to the past as it draws them closer in the modern world. I liked the idea of the storyline; a mystery highwayman sounded very romantic and I’ve long been a fan of the Robin Hood tale. I was also intrigued, at first, with the ghostly sightings and visions. But the plot was weakened by wordy sentences and information dumping, particularly via dialogue. I found the narrative clichéd in parts, rather than unique to the author. Overall an okay read and one which might suit fans of ghostly happenings in English country houses.

    I have read very few stories that manage to weave "present day" so seamlessly with events that have happened in the past. However, this story manages to do just that. There is just enough "paranormal" events to add to my overall enjoyment of the story. I enjoyed watching as Elodie and Alex learned Georgiana's "true story", all of the dark times included. I also felt that the author managed to convey the "past" while being in the present in a way that was not confusing to the reader.

I knew at all times when I was seeing past memories or events, and when I was in present day. One thing that I wish was better explained was the genealogy after the fact. From the way earlier events were described, I was half wondering if Elodie and Alex were in fact related somewhere down the line as well. Overall, I am sure this story will appeal to those who enjoy romance novels that have a bit of the paranormal tossed in.

But this? This is something brand new. We follow Alex(ander) and Elodie while they try to find out what happened in Hartsford. During their search for the truth we also learn more about their past. It might not have been as pretty as we thought. At the same time we follow the story of Georgiana and Ben. What is their story? And why is this mystery so important? I really liked to read it. The similarities between the past and present are lovely to discover. The fact that it’s a bit paranormal is something that got me interested. Kirsty made room for mystery, romance and even some horror in this story. There was something that I didn’t like as well. Elodie sees ghosts, we know that pretty soon. We also discover that she was bullied for it and kept it for herself because of that. But at some point everyone in the story seems to be okay with seeing ghosts. That’s a bit unbelievable for me, it goes too easy. But beside this it’s a lovely read. Kirsty writes as subtitle: ‘book 1- Hartford mysteries’. That really makes me curious to read more. The way that Kirsty writes is very pleasant to read. My final opinion is as followed: Yes, there is one thing that I find unbelievable but I still finished the book because I wanted to know how everything would turn out. So, it really is a lovely book. A book that you can use to travel in the past. Written by Stefanie Rls "Watch For Me by Moonlight" is my first novel by Kirsty Ferry and it won't be my last. The storyline piqued my interest from the beginning. Not only is there something going on between Elodie and Alex, but there is also the mystery around Georgiana. These two stories are a great read on their own, but combined they make an even greater tale. Travelling between the past and present is done very smooth with the help of a bit of a quest and a touch of the paranormal. It just got me hooked or better I fell in love! Is it perfect? No, 'cause I found some (spelling) mistakes and the switches between the characters in the present aren't sometimes as effortless as they should be, but hey, I FELL IN LOVE. A captivating read for people who love a good romance, here and now, but also in the past. I do hope for more! Written by Patsi Demarsin I have read this one. For the review, I have a problem. I don't want to write a synopsis because I won't give too much away. So I am going to just tell how I experienced this book. It started out normal. Then it soon became a bit more mysterious... A bit later present and past came together in a strange way... It was only later I realized paranormal things were sneeking in... Paranormal is a red ribbon through the whole story... Well written, nice to read... I want more of this... Bring it on! Oh yeah... The book... Love is in the air... It is a romance, but not all roses and moonlight! There is so much going on which makes it so exiting. You just can't stop reading. The beginning might be a bit slow, but after a few pages... Off I was! Unstoppable! And that is all I am going to say because otherwise I completely ruin the story with spoilers! Watch for me by moonlight: 4 * no doubt Written by Melody Weemaels I truly tought I signed up for a haunting ghoststory, boy was I wrong. This book is a paranormal romance, emphasize on the romance. The story follows Elodie who had a sixth sense and Alex who manages his family estate. They share a past and have a failed romance between them. When a thunderstorm hits their village and wrecks the tomb of one of Alex' anceisters, elodie's sixth sense kicks in. Through flashes of memories they find out what happend to georgiana and find themselves growing back towards each other. This book has me in dubio whether i liked it or not. there were chapters i could not read fast enough and then there were chapters that seemed to drag on forever. I really liked the story of georgiana and ben and was a bit sad when it took up so little of the pages. I would have loved for their story to be the focal point as they were much more interesting and intruiging than Alex and elodie, the latter who i found a bit dull tbh. I also found the lineage a bit confusing, from what i understood Alex and elodie are related? The author has a very Nice manner of writing, which makes this book a very easy, comfy read. It's one of those books that lend themselves for a rainy, autumn afternoon. So if you are looking for a Nice lovestory with just a hint of the paranormal this is the book for you!

    Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read this book in return for my honest opinion. This was a wonderful summer weekend read, a nice change from all the thrillers I have been reading. I loved both the present and past stories in this book, I liked the way it was told in "flashbacks" attached to an item or area. The pull between Elodie and Alex was way too obvious, I don't know how they didn't see it earlier but of course, it played well with the story and I Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read this book in return for my honest opinion.

The pull between Elodie and Alex was way too obvious, I don't know how they didn't see it earlier but of course, it played well with the story and I guess it would have been pretty short if they had hooked up in chapter one, but I felt there could have been more conflict between them. I loved the locket with the love knot, I remember my grandmother telling me of this practice when I was younger, what a lovely piece of history.

    This is one of the most lovely and romantic tales I have read. Alex Aldrich, the Earl of Hartsford, when his mother had abandoned him and his sister three ladies looked after the children, one of these ladies was Elodie's mom. she and Alex had been friends since primary school. Elodie Bright also had a gift. The characters were wonderful, they seemed to grow as the story went along and you were drawn into their tale right away. I loved this, it moved so flawlessly, was effectively paced and extre This is one of the most lovely and romantic tales I have read.
