Publisher's Summary

Has Catherine Lacey been kidnapped by human hands, or has the ghost of Lacey Hall ridden away with her?

1879: Sophie, Catherine’s sister, can’t answer that question. Catherine disappeared overnight. Sophie knows that Catherine had fallen in love with the ghost of the first Sir Giles Lacey, who in 1676, had won Lacey Hall in a card game. Not content with his windfall, he reclaimed land from the village to build a lake. The story goes he was murdered for it.

2019: Australian Kate Dalton reads her three times great-grandmother Sophie’s letter and travels to England to discover if Catherine had been murdered, kidnapped, or whisked away by a ghost. At first, Kate isn’t welcomed at Lacey Hall, particularly by its owner. She is warned to stay away from Old Widcombe Woods and the dilapidated cottage in its midst. The woods were cursed many years ago. 

Then, Kate sees the ghost rider. The old tale claims that every night, he rides up to the house and then disappears into the lake, his destiny sealed for eternity. Kate is determined to see him up close, but the present Sir Giles prevents her from going outside to him. 

At every turn, Kate is foiled. Then, Kate sees a second ghost. After a series of accidents find Kate with head injuries and more, she starts to wonder if they are mishaps, or does someone want to prevent her from discovering what happened to Catherine, uncovering a mystery that has its seed planted by the first Sir Giles. Kate doesn’t see the final danger approaching.

Captivating and Intriguing mystery ghost story

The Ghost Rider by Ellen Read is a captivating and intriguing novel that combines historical fiction and paranormal romance. The story alternates between two timelines: 1879, when Catherine Lacey, a young woman fascinated by the legend of the Ghost Rider, a spectral horseman who haunts the English countryside, mysteriously vanishes; and 2019, when Kate Dalton, a Australian writer and Catherine’s descendant, travels to England to find out what happened to her ancestor and to unravel the secrets of the Ghost Rider. Along the way, Kate encounters danger, mystery, and romance, as she uncovers the truth behind the curse that binds the Ghost Rider to his fate.

The plot is full of twists and turns, and the author does a great job of building up the tension and the mystery. The Ghost Rider is a novel that will appeal to fans of historical fiction, paranormal romance, and mystery.
