Spotlighting Jaime Jo Wright's The Vanishing at Castle Moreau


I missed the boat on posting for this blog tour,  I didn't finish the book either.  I could make all the excuses in the world, but I won't.  I'll just say that due to personal reasons I messed up.  Instead, I am posting a spotlight with a review to come in the near future.

I love the cover.  It captures my eye and imagination.  The mystery vibe is intriguing.


A haunting legend. An ominous curse. A search for a secret buried deep within the castle walls.

In 1870, orphaned Daisy François takes a position as a housemaid at a Wisconsin castle to

escape the horrors of her past life. There she finds a reclusive and eccentric Gothic

authoress who hides tales more harrowing than the ones in her novels. As women disappear

from the area and the eerie circumstances seem to parallel a local legend, Daisy is thrust into

a web that could ultimately steal her sanity, if not her life.

In the present day, Cleo Clemmons is hired by the grandson of an American aristocratic family

to help his grandmother face her hoarding in the dilapidated Castle Moreau. But when Cleo

uncovers more than just the woman's stash of collectibles, a century-old mystery and the dust

of the old castle's curse threaten to rise again . . . this time to leave no one alive to tell the

sordid tale.

Award-winning author Jaime Jo Wright seamlessly weaves a dual-time tale of two women who

must do all they can to seek the light amid the darkness shrouding Castle Moreau.




Jaime Jo Wright is the author of eight novels, including Christy Award and Daphne du Maurier Award-winner The House on Foster Hill and Carol Award winner The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond. She's also the Publishers Weekly and ECPA bestselling author of two novellas. Jaime lives in Wisconsin with her cat named

Foo; her husband, Cap'n Hook; and their two mini-adults, Peter Pan and CoCo.



  • “Wright (The Souls of Lost Lake) captivates with a thrilling tale of two women who get caught up in the secrets of a Wisconsin castle…The twisting, fast-moving plot is loaded with secrets, and the characters remain morally ambiguous until the end. Readers won’t want to put this down.”— Publisher’s Weekly

  • "Wright (The Premonition at Withers Farm) pens another delightfully creepy tale where nothing is quite as it seems and characters seek freedom from nightmares both real and imagined.”— Library Journal

"Jaime Jo Wright never disappoints, and The Vanishing at Castle Moreau is no exception. With real, flawed characters who grapple with real-life struggles, this gripping suspense novel will draw readers in from the very first page. Good luck putting it down. I couldn't."— Lynette Eason, bestselling author of the Extreme Measures serie
