Merryn Burton is excited to travel down to Cornwall to start her first big job for the London art dealers she works for. But as soon as she arrives at Pencradoc, a beautiful old mansion, she realizes this will be no ordinary commission.
Not only is Pencradoc filled with fascinating, and possibly valuable artwork, it is also owned by the Penhaligon brothers and Merryn’s instant connection with Kit Penhaligon could be another reason why her trip suddenly becomes a whole lot more interesting.
But the longer Merryn stays at Pencradoc the more obvious it is that the house has a secret, and a long-forgotten Rose might just hold the key.
Title: A Secret Rose

Author: Kirsty Ferry
Genre: Contemporary Romance & Time Slip Romance
Published: June 11, 2019
My Rating: 4.5 stars
A SECRET ROSE is a delicious Time Slip Romance with intriguing characters both in the present and in the past. The Penhaligon brothers have inherited the beautiful Pencradoc – and they may just have inherited more than they are aware of for far more than dust motes wander these halls and rooms filled with beautiful artwork. It’s Merryn’s job to sort out the artwork for the art dealer she works for in London. Yet she’s discovered an attraction with Kit that she cannot explain, beautiful art beyond her expectations and something more – something that she certainly cannot explain in logical terms.
Wander the halls of Pencradoc with Merryn, Kit, and Coren — along with Rose, Zennor, Jago, and Alys from the past as two time periods blend seamlessly to give us a story with secrets that finally will see the light of day.
A SECRET ROSE is a Time Slip Romance that is so easy to be drawn into no matter which time period you are encountering at that moment. I love how Kirsty Ferry can spin a tale between two different times and blend them so that we move between them as naturally as opening and closing a door. I enjoyed every moment spent in this story, and if you love a really good Time Slip then you’ll want to pick this one up – now. A mystery, a love story, a touch of the supernatural and effortless moving between today and yesterday – who could ask for more?
